Lithuania is threatening to stop using Russian oil and gas

Lithuania president said the country was determined to halt oil and gas purchases in Russia. Which is a recent sign that other EU countries are planning to increase sanctions on Moscow by invading Ukraine.

“It can cause problems, but those problems will not be serious,” said President Gitanas Nauseda.

Lithuania received about 63% of its oil imports from Russia in 2019.

President Nauseda said the figure was now down after an oil refinery stopped buying Russian crude oil.

Western nations hit Moscow with sanctions late last month over Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. The US has blocked imports of Russian power, and the UK has ended Russia’s imports of oil.

Gas in Russia

The EU, which receives about 40% of its gas in Russia. Has said it will reduce reliance on the oil by two-thirds by a year.

Speaking about Lithuania, President Nauseda told the BBC: “Yes, it ‘s about time: How long will we have to adjust [to reduce Russian imports].

“But I can say it in other words. We are better prepared for such a cut in Russia’s energy resources than most other EU countries.”
On March 3, the owner of the Mazeikiai refinery in Lithuania. Orlen Lietuva, said they had agreed with Saudi Aramco for five additional tanks of goods seized from the North Sea.

That, he said, would secure further provision for Lithuania, Poland and the Czech Republic.

Including a complete suspension of goods from the east side.”

Lithuanian president’s warning

The Lithuanian president’s warning shows how other countries intend to put pressure on Russia’s economy.
Apart from oil, Lithuania has worked, over the past decade.To reduce its dependence on Russia for natural gas. Including the opening of its LNG terminal called Independence.

Electricity independence, however, remains an ongoing task, said President Nauseda.

“We are still connected to the so-called Brell system of the former Soviet Union and this connection does not allow us to switch to different [European] systems [at present].

“We will now try to speed up the process so that we can end it. As soon as possible,” he added.

President Nauseda also acknowledged ongoing concerns. Including with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. About whether the Baltic states – including Lithuania – could be Russia’s next president, Vladimir Putin.

Putin declared that the greatest catastrophe

“Unfortunately this is true. As Putin declared that the greatest catastrophe of the 20th Century was the collapse of the Soviet Union. He was thinking of the Baltic states, because they are an integral part of the Soviet Union, too.

“So, this is a threat. We have never been cunning that we will be corrupt,” he said.

But he said the country had increased spending on defense, including military equipment. He also believes in the NATO alliance.

“I strongly believe in Nato’s ability to function effectively as a joint defense force,” he said. “I see, too, that this alliance is working, with more deployment and military power down.

“And this is the best proof for me that Nato works,” he said.
