The analyst believes that the measures should not be military.
Military expert, director of the Museum of Air Defense Forces Yuri Knutov, in an interview with the media, said that Russia, together with Belarus, can give an answer to Lithuania on the imposition of a blockade of Kaliningrad.
In an interview with “Ukraine.ru” ; he suggested that Vilnius wanted to provoke Moscow into a military conflict, but Russia could respond with economic measures.
He suggested that if there were economic levers, one should turn to Minsk and put Lithuania in an economic blockade similar to the one that the country arranged for the Kaliningrad region. According to Knutov, NATO and the United States stand behind Vilnius, and it is to the West that he will turn in the event of the introduction of retaliatory economic sanctions against Russia.
Only in this way, the military expert believes, can Lithuania reverse the decision.
“So that later Lithuania would ask the West to allow some actions regarding the possibility of transporting Russian goods”, – he explained.
As Topnews wrote, last week it became known that the transit of a number of goods to Kaliningrad by the Lithuanian Railways was stopped. It was about goods that fell under EU sanctions. The Russian side declared the inadmissibility of such a measure. And the head of the region, Anton Alikhanov, explained that the ferries will cope with the new load.
As for the transit of petroleum products, it will stop after August 10.
