Lithuania tells Russia about transit restrictions timeline — diplomat

Lithuania sent Russia a diplomatic note where it set out the dates when certain Russian cargoes will fall under EU sanctions, Sergey Ryabokon, a Russian charge d'affaires in Lithuania, said on Rossiya-1 television.

That happened amid the recent Lithuanian restrictions on transit of some freight to Russia’s Kaliningrad Region.

"They gave us a note today where they reminded us of the timeline - starting with July, August, December, January - when certain restrictions will take effect," he said. "It’s oil products in December-January, if I’m not mistaken, while coal will be earlier, around August."

The diplomat said these moves by Lithuania are seeking to harm the Kaliningrad transit. The curbs are "a partial blockade that they are effectively introducing against our region," he said.
