On Monday, July 11, Lithuania expanded restrictions on transit through its territory to Russia's Kaliningrad, as the European Union's gradual introduction of sanctions against Moscow over its invasion of Ukraine came into effect. Reuters writes about this, referring to the words of the spokesman of the Lithuanian customs.

Therefore, Lithuanian government officials restricted the transit of concrete, wood, alcohol, and alcohol-based industrial chemicals.

It was previously reported that the Lithuanian railway company LTG Cargo had stopped the transit of sanctioned cargo between the Kaliningrad region and the territory of Russia since June 18. The governor of the Kaliningrad region, Anton Alikhanov, said that according to his preliminary estimates, this is from 40 to 50% of goods transported between the Kaliningrad region and other regions of the Russian Federation.

In particular, construction materials, cement, metals, and "several other goods important for both construction and production" fell under the ban.

The Lithuanian side explained the ban by receiving clarifications from the European Commission that the transit of goods prohibited for import into the EU would be a sanctions violation.
