KALININGRAD, February 20. /TASS/. The turnover between Russia and Lithuania fell 40% last year, Russian Ambassador to Lithuania Alexander Udaltsov said on Saturday.
"Our turnover - a very important indicator - fell 40% last year, and the decline continues for several years," Udaltsov said. Relations between the countries "are stalled or in a very severe condition" and contacts at the political level are "frozen," he added.
Residents of Lithuania "support the start of communications, discussions, and solution of some practical matters," particularly in the border districts and in respect of the Kaliningrad Region in the first instance, the ambassador said.
"I am confident such strained relations are a temporary phenomenon," Udaltsov said. The Russian embassy in Lithuania is making efforts to establish cooperation," he added.
