BRUSSELS, October 2 (Itar-Tass) - Lithuania can block railway and motor service between Russia and the Kaliningrad Region if Moscow does not stop pressure on its neighbors, Lithuanian Foreign Minister Linas Linkevicius said.
“We could also apply the same measures.” “As you know, the Kaliningrad region is isolated, geographically isolated, so we could apply some measures also to cut something," he told Reuters late on Tuesday, adding that no discussions along those lines had taken place.
“Transport, we could cut off trains, but not only trains, also the supply of goods, whatever. It is theoretically possible. It was not discussed, it's not our way of thinking, it's not our methods," he said.
The Russian enclave of Kaliningrad, with around 430,000 people, is enclosed by Poland to the south and Lithuania to the north and east but it has a large port on the Baltic.
Aside from sea shipments, it relies on road and rail links with Russia that cross Lithuania and Belarus.
