Gitanz Nouseda said the country was ready for retaliation from Russia
RT – On Wednesday, Lithuanian President Gitanos Nouseda said that Vilnius was ready to expand the list of items banned from entering the Russian enclave of Kaliningrad if the European Union imposes new sanctions on Moscow. He told Reuters that the country was ready to face any possible retaliation from Russia.
“We are ready for Russia’s hostile actions, such as the dismantling of the BRELL system [rede elétrica] Or others, ”Nouseda said.
He emphasized that the transit was not a signal of a formal antitrust inquiry into the allegations, but rather a signal of a formal antitrust inquiry into the allegations. “We feel the support of the European Union because it is the decision of the European Union,” he said, adding that the country was ready to expand its list of banned products if the block imposed new sanctions on Russia.
