They informed the leadership of the region about it, the governor of the Kaliningrad region Anton Alikhanov said.

According to preliminary estimates, the ban will affect from 40% to 50% of the range of goods transported between the Kaliningrad region and other regions of Russia.

"This includes building materials, cement, metal, a number of other important for construction and production, finished products exported from our territory," - said the governor of the region.

He believes that by banning the transit of goods to the Kaliningrad region, Lithuania "grossly violated the rules of its accession to the EU."

The Kaliningrad region is a Russian enclave bordering Lithuania and Poland.

Railway passenger communication with him is carried out through the territory of Lithuania without changes, and planes fly over the Baltic Sea, because the airspace of the EU is closed to Russia.

In early June, the European Union adopted the 6th package of sanctions against Russia, which, among other things, expanded the list of individuals and organizations subject to export restrictions on dual-use goods and technologies.

In addition, the list of goods and technologies that can contribute to the technological improvement of Russia's defense and security sector has been expanded.

It includes 80 chemicals that can be used to produce chemical weapons.
