"Moscow is full of determination over the transport blockade of Kaliningrad, but will not rush to make decisions," said Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov APA reports citing TASS.

"No need to rush here, but, at the same time, we have been full of determination," he said, commenting on the situation. "It will take some time before certain decisions are made."

Russia is absolutely right in the Kaliningrad issue, the country is analyzing the situation and delivering its position regarding the transit blockade of the enclave to its opponents, he said.

"We are analyzing this situation in a most serious way. Via the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, we are delivering our [position] to our opponents," he said. "In this situation, we are absolutely right."

"Regretfully, they are not our partners any longer, they are our opponents now," he added.

When asked whether any retaliatory measures should be expected after the report by Security Council Secretary Nikolay Patrushev to Russian President Vladimir Putin, the official replied: "We need some time to analyze the situation." "I believe our opponents need it as well," he added.

The Kremlin does not rule out the possibility of Lithuania lifting its restrictions on transit to Russia’s Baltic exclave, but is preparing for the worse, he said.

"Let us not rule out anything. Let us hope for the better and prepare for the worse. And this is exactly what we are doing now," he said.
