Ukraine War

The head of Russia’s security council threatened Lithuania with “serious” consequences on Tuesday over restrictions imposed on the rail transit of EU-sanctioned goods to Moscow’s exclave of Kaliningrad, a region bordering Lithuania and Poland. “Russia will certainly respond to such hostile actions,” Nikolai Patrushev said at a security meeting in Kaliningrad. He added that “appropriate measures” are in the works and they “will be taken in the near future.” “Their consequences will have a serious negative impact on the population of Lithuania,” he said in comments reported on by Russian news agencies.
