“We are working closely with the European Commission, which is expected to announce guidelines for handling these goods in transit in a few days,” he told DPA.

His words are quoted by TASS.

Earlier, information appeared in the media that transit through Lithuania to Kaliningrad could return to normal within a few days due to a compromise between the EU leadership and Vilnius.

On June 17, Lithuanian Railways notified Kaliningrad Railways of stopping the transit of a number of sanctioned goods from June 18.

Lithuanian Foreign Minister Gabrielius Landsbergis said that lifting restrictions on transit is the prerogative of the EC.
