KALININGRAD, June 22. /TASS/. Lithuania’s restrictions on freight transit to Kaliningrad looked like a mistake at first, but it’s now clear that’s deliberate policy, Kaliningrad Region Governor Anton Alikhanov told TASS.
"Honestly, I was hoping they would say: ‘We made a mistake, let’s clarify.’ But no. In any case, the rhetoric that’s seen in the media suggests that this is a deliberate policy. ‘Sanctions are sanctions’ - that’s what it is," he said in an interview.
The governor said in this situation, Kaliningrad will organize a sea corridor and offer tit-for-tat measures.
"I believe that this should be met with a response. Our country has not yet taken any retaliatory steps that are quite serious, in my opinion. But that’s down the road," he said.
