Kaliningrad is at the center of a dispute between Russia and Lithuania | DW News

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. Meanwhile, Moscow's foreign ministry has summoned the EU ambassador to the Russian capital, Markus Ederer, over the "anti-Russian restrictions" on cargo moving between Kaliningrad and mainland Russia.
