(MENAFN) EU restrictions, controlling the quantity of products that can be sent from mainland Russia to Kaliningrad, are stopping the exclave from getting all the necessary items, in agreement with the local director on Tuesday.
“Today we have exhausted the EU limits on transportation of some types of cargo, for example, certain types of iron, steel, oil and oil products, fertilizers, antifreeze and timber,” Anton Alikhanov reported to RBC news agency at the Valdai Discussion Club.
As stated by the director, the scope of items that the area needs are “fairly large,” but it “already has no opportunities because of the established quotas.”
In mid-June, Lithuania banned the shipment of products from mainland Russia to Kaliningrad by rail, over EU restrictions.
The restriction comprises building materials, metals, wood, cement, fertilizers, and alcohol, which Moscow convicted as unlawful.
