Latvia and Lithuania Stopped Allowing Cars With Russian Registration

Cars may also be confiscated. Latvia and Lithuania stopped allowing cars with Russian registration into the country after the European Commission clarified the interpretation of the sanctions legislation regarding Russia.

The decision came into force at 6 p.m. Tuesday, September 12, writes Evropeyskaya Pravda.

After clarifications from the European Commission regarding previously imposed sanctions and the conclusion of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Latvia stopped allowing cars with Russian registration into the country across the borders of Russia and Belarus. Lithuania made a similar decision, with the exception of vehicles in transit to Kaliningrad.

In case of malicious disobedience to customs officers and refusal to turn around at the border, the car may be confiscated. Car owners were also warned against repeated attempts to enter through other checkpoints.

Travel from the EU to Russia in passenger cars with Russian registration remains permitted if they are not declared as goods.

Let us recall that according to the survey, the majority of Europeans support providing assistance to Ukraine and imposing sanctions against Russia.
