Lithuania threatens to block the railroad to Kaliningrad

August 21 2006

Lithuania threatens to block the railroad to Kaliningrad. The Lithuanian Foreign Ministry has warned the Russian side that, if the repair of the Druzhba pipeline will be delayed, Lithuania, in turn, will repair railways and thereby limit the transit through its territory of the Kaliningrad region.

In Vilnius, hinting that the repair of the pipeline is delayed for political reasons, reported Finmarket.

We recall that the July 29 accident on an oil pipeline Druzhba-1. The accident spilled about 100 tons of oil. According to the official reason cause of the accident - worn pipes. However, in Lithuania believe that the reason is different. The head of Transneft Semyon Weinstock said that the Druzhba pipeline in general can not be restored.
