Expert comments on situation around Kaliningrad transit

MINSK, 11 July (BelTA) - The Union State will not fall for the West's provocation around the Kaliningrad transit, Aleksei Avdonin, an analyst with the Belarusian Institute of Strategic Research (BISR), said on the air of the First National Channel of the Belarusian Radio, BelTA has learned.

"The frequency of contacts between the heads of the two states [Belarus and Russia] suggests only one thing: the parties interact closely to resolve a number of issues, primarily economic, political and military ones and, of course, discuss the situation around the Union State. The main topics were the Kaliningrad transit, the course of the special military operation, the situation in the post-Soviet space, the supply of Russian energy to Europe, the construction of the Belarusian seaport and the defense of Belarus and Russia within the framework of the Union State," Aleksei Avdonin noted. “The the situation is evolving rapidly, and the heads of the two states actually hold such discussions every week in order to act quickly and give appropriate instructions to the executive bodies."

The expert stressed that the situation with the Kaliningrad transit restrictions has been artificially created by the collective West to aggravate the situation in the region. "They are set to escalate the situation with transit up to some kind of a military operation on the part of Russia. This topic has been widely discussed in foreign media. But we see that Moscow and Minsk are not falling for this provocation. The Belarusian head of state has repeatedly said that we will not fall for any provocative actions on the part of the collective West and will do everything to resolve the situation peacefully and provide Kaliningrad Oblast with everything necessary," he added.
