Moscow's prompt response to the blockade of Kaliningrad will be sensitive for the people of Lithuania. This was stated by Secretary of the Security Council Nikolai Patrushev during a meeting on topical issues of national security in the North-West of Russia, his words are reported by TASS.
According to him, the situation on the border territory of the district is being formed in the conditions of the build-up of the military and intelligence presence of NATO, as well as under the influence of informational and economic pressure from Western countries.
Patrushev cited as an example Lithuania's blockade "in violation of the norms and principles of international law" of the transit through its territory of a number of goods to the Kaliningrad region. This example, according to the Secretary of the Security Council, shows that the statements of the West cannot be trusted.
“Russia will certainly react to such hostile actions. Appropriate measures are being worked out in an interdepartmental format and will be taken in the near future. Their consequences will have a serious negative impact on the people of Lithuania,” Patrushev assured.
Earlier the Lithuanian Railways notified the Kaliningrad Railway of the termination of the transit of a number of goods that fell under the sanctions of the European Union (EU). In turn, the official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova, called these actions hostile.
Afterwards, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky will have to decide whether to go and sign the act of surrender, the intelligence officer concluded.
