Russia may halt trade to Baltics in response to Kaliningrad ban

Governor of Kaliningrad Anton Alikhanov (pictured) revealed that Moscow could potentially ban both import and export of all Russian goods through the Baltics in retaliation to Lithuania's decision to blockade transit to the region, he told Rossiya-24 TV on Tuesday.

Earlier, the governor told RIA Novosti that the only way to resolve the issue once and for all is for the European Union to adopt a new package of sanctions with "exceptions or to include exceptions in existing packages."

Furthermore, Alikhanov stated that Kaliningrad has "everything" to resolve the issue of goods transit through the Baltic country, warning the European Union of an "extreme response" if the union continues to obstruct the passage of goods.
