Last week, representatives of Baltic ports and railroads were not jokingly concerned. There were rumors that Belarus may suspend the transit.
The head of the Lithuanian National Road Carriers Association Linava, Romas Austinskas, confirmed the presence of a Belarusian letter in Russian, in which Belarus threatens Lithuania with a blockade.
Relations between Vilnius and Minsk deteriorated after Lithuania announced sanctions against Belarusian officials and President Lukashenko.
In response, the Belarusian leader instructed the government to consider options for redirecting Belarusian cargo from Lithuanian ports to other sea ports.
