After Russia banned food imports from the EU, trucks with cargo which had left for Moscow before the ban were told to return to Lithuania. This was reported on Saturday by Lithuanian road carriers association Linava.

Their biggest concern remains where to safely store products in order for them not to get spoiled.

By Saturday, 16 trucks returned from Russia. They had left with goods at the beginning of the week and reached Russian customs on Thursday. When customs procedures were being carried out, Russian customs officers announced that goods would have to be transported back, as Moscow's embargo on food imports from the EU came into force.

"However, the biggest issue is what should be done with the cargo. Should it be sold? First, it is necessary to collect all the data on the available storage space where frozen products could be further stored," said representative of the Road Carriers Association Linava Gytis Vincevičius.
