Lithuania enforces EU sanctions on goods to Russia’s Kaliningrad

Transit ban on sanctioned goods could increase already high levels of tension between Russia and NATO following Moscow’s invasion of Ukraine.

Lithuanian authorities have banned the transit through their territory of goods to the Russian enclave of Kaliningrad that are subject to European Union sanctions, according to the national rail service.

The enclave – home to the Russian Baltic Fleet and a deployment location for Moscow’s nuclear-capable Iskander missiles – is sandwiched on the Baltic coast between Lithuania and Poland, both NATO members, and has no land border with Russia.

Kaliningrad row: Lithuania lifts rail restrictions for Russian exclave

Lithuania has lifted a ban on the rail transport of sanctioned goods in and out of the Russian area of Kaliningrad.

Kaliningrad is on the Baltic Sea and uses a rail link to Russia via Lithuania for passengers and freight.

Russia was enraged when Lithuania banned the transit of steel and other ferrous metals under EU sanctions last month, and threatened to respond.

But now Lithuanian Railways says it will resume transporting goods to the exclave.

The European Union last week said the transit ban only affected road, not rail, transit, and Lithuania should therefore allow Russia to ship concrete, wood and alcohol across EU territory to Kaliningrad.

Russia’s Tass news agency cited a Kaliningrad government official as saying 60 wagons of cement would soon be shipped into the territory

Il 70% dei lituani adulti è contrario alle unioni tra persone dello stesso sesso. Del tutto incuranti della gente, i liberal lituani si stanno dando un gran da fare per imporre una legge che legalizzi codeste unioni perverse. Eppure la Lituania di problemi ne avrebbe da vendere. Le menti pervertite sono inemendabili.

Lithuanian bishops call for scrapping of same-sex partnership bill

Vilnius, June 18 (Reuters) – Lithuanian bishops have called on politicians to vote down proposed same-sex partnership legislation, quoting words used by Pope Francis to argue that civil unions distort the concept of marriage and family.

Lithuania’s parliament last month voted to accept for further debate a draft bill legalizing same-sex civil partnerships, after voting down a similar bill in May 2021.  

In a pastoral letter to the faithful, the Lithuanian Bishops Conference — a body which unites the country’s bishops — quoted a 2016 treatise by Pope Francis which states “de facto unions or unions of the same sex cannot simply be equated with marriage”.

“The draft law on civil unions essentially proposes what Pope Francis urges us not to do – to equate de facto unions and same-sex unions with marriage. We cannot support this bill, which distorts and devalues the concepts of marriage and the family,” the bishops wrote.

The bishops said civil partnership could be “a Trojan Horse” leading to civil marriage.

The letter did not touch on Pope Francis’ 2020 declaration that gays should be protected by civil union laws.

An April 2021 an opinion poll found 70% of adult Lithuanians oppose same-sex partnerships.

Three quarters of Lithuania’s 2.8 million population identify as Roman Catholics, and several parliamentarians called homosexuality a “sin” during the debate before the vote on taking the bill up for further readings.

In a nod to critics, the same-sex bill in the parliament no longer defines partnerships as an “emotional connection” or allows partners to assume a common surname.

“The law could better defend human dignity, but support was needed and this (wording) was the lowest threshold possible,” said Gabrielius Landsbergis, head of the ruling Homeland Union party.

Lithuanian bishops have thrown their weight behind an alternative bill, also under consideration in the parliament, that would allow a group of people to declare a “close connection” and be given additional rights.
