EU: No intention to block Russian enclave Kaliningrad


2022-06-25: [Chinese Article Link]  The Russian side strongly opposes the recent ban on the transport of goods to the Russian enclave of Kaliningrad by rail in Lithuania. According to “Russia Today” television (RT), the EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, Borelli 23, stated that the EU was trying to prevent Russia from evading the sanctions and that it had no intention of imposing a “blocking” on Kaliningrad, and that the EU would review the guidelines for sanctions against Russia in order to avoid blocking traffic into and out of Kaliningrad. RT: EU will review the blockade of Kaliningrad “First, Kaliningrad has not been blocked.” According to a press release issued by the European Union Agency for External Action (EEAS), Borelli, at a press conference, stated that the Government of Lithuania was implementing EU guidelines relating to sanctions, and that the EU would like to take action “to prevent any form of sanctions evasion, not to obstruct traffic.” He said that the European Commission and the European Union External Action Service would review the relevant guidelines “to clarify that we have no intention of impeding or preventing traffic between Russia and Kaliningrad”. In response to the next question, Borelli stressed again: “Let's make it clear: (in Kaliningrad) there is no blockade.” He said that some goods are currently under control, but that such controls must be implemented “in a smart and tactful manner” and must not impede traffic between Kaliningrad and Russia. In recent days, the ban on the transport of goods via railways in Lithuania to the Russian enclave of Kaliningrad region has provoked strong opposition from the Russian side, arguing that this was not a Lithuanian decision, but in accordance with the relevant EU sanctions against Russia. The Russian side stated on 21 that Lithuania has expanded the scope of this “embargo order” to include the prohibition of road transport in addition to rail transport, and that currently only sea transport is available to the Kaliningrad region as a means of obtaining goods from other parts of Russia. The Russian side has indicated that it will respond to the “embargo order” in order to “rest in pain” in Lithuania, and on 22nd the State of Kaliningrad, Changan East Arihanov, announced that the State would submit to the Russian Federal Government a proposal for retaliatory measures against the traffic blockade in Lithuania.
