Lithuanian President Gitanas Nauseda said that they are ready to expand the list of goods prohibited in transit to Russia’s Kaliningrad outer region if the European Union (EU) imposes new sanctions on Moscow.
Speaking to the British press, Lithuanian President Gitanas Nauseda said that his country is ready to face any possible retaliatory measures that Russia may bring.
“We are ready and ready for Russia’s unfriendly actions, such as disconnection from the BRELL (electric grid) system,” said Lithuanian President Gitanas Nauseda.
The President emphasized that transit restrictions are not a sovereign act of Lithuania, but only the application of EU sanctions against Moscow due to the ongoing conflict in Ukraine.
“We feel the support of the European Union because this is a decision made by the European Union,” he said, adding that the country is ready to expand its list of prohibited goods if the bloc imposes new restrictions on Russia.
