Lithuania stops importing Russian LNG — RT Business News


Lithuania on Thursday halted imports of Russian liquefied natural gas (LNG) into the port of Klaipeda, according to the country’s Energy Minister Dainius Kreivys.

Small shipments of LNG were regularly delivered to the Baltic country from the Russian port of Vysotsk, where the Russian company Novatek has its production plant.

Additionally, Lithuania and its neighbors Latvia and Estonia have agreed to cut commercial electricity flows from Russia from Thursday, according to Kreivys.

“Commercial traffic from Russia is reduced to a minimum technical level. This is the decision of the three Baltic States, which was taken yesterday. We ensure the operation of the system with local production, imported via the interconnections with Sweden, Poland and Latvia”, said the energy minister.
