Patrushev threatened Lithuania with consequences for stopping the transit of goods to Kaliningrad. Under the ban, including panties, bidets and castanets

Secretary of the Russian Security Council Nikolai Patrushev arrived in the Kaliningrad region to attend a meeting on national security issues. It was convened after Lithuania's decision to stop the transit of sanctioned goods to the region.

Lithuanian railways stopped the transit of products subject to Western sanctions to Kaliningrad on the night of June 17-18. On June 20, the Charge d'Affaires of Lithuania was summoned to the Russian Foreign Ministry. She was informed that if Lithuania does not restore transit in the near future, Russia reserves the right to take action to protect its national interests.

Patrushev said that Russia would soon respond to Lithuania's actions. According to him, the consequences of the response measures "will have a serious negative impact on the population of Lithuania." Earlier, the Ministry of Economic Development of the Kaliningrad Region published a list of goods that are subject to the ban. This is a single list of sanctioned goods for the entire European Union.
