Lithuania has banned the transit of some goods through its territory from Russia to its exclave of Kaliningrad. It includes coal, metals, construction materials and advanced technology, accounting for around 50% of all goods that Kaliningrad imports. Moscow said the move was “unprecedented” and “unlawful” and threatened to respond.  Lithuania’s foreign minister Gabrielius Landsbergis said his country was simply implementing sanctions imposed by the EU, of which it is a member.  He said the measures introduced on Saturday were taken after “consultation with the European Commission and under its guidelines”.
