Peskov hopes common sense will prevail on Lithuania's ban

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov stated on Monday he hopes common sense will prevail regarding the ban imposed by Lithuania on the transit of goods to Kaliningrad.

"We are waiting for this situation to be resolved. As we have repeatedly said, we hope for the best, but we are also thinking over various scenarios in case of a worst-case scenario, so we do not want to say anything more for now. Still, we hope that some common sense will prevail here," Peskov told reporters.

Earlier, on the same topic, Russian Security Council Deputy Chairman Dmitry Medvedev said Moscow could take "tough" retaliatory measures in response to Lithuania's ban on transit to Kaliningrad.
