According to her, Vilnius shows “aggressive hostility” and its actions “go beyond the bounds of conduct contrary to international law.”

She called Lithuania’s actions a “provocation” and announced Moscow’s response. Earlier, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov announced that an analysis would be prepared on possible retaliatory measures.

The Kaliningrad authorities guarantee that ferries will be used to transport sanctioned goods and that the region will be able to handle them.
