Lithuania suffers from anti-Russian sanctions most of all in EU

Lithuania turned out to be the most affected from the anti-Russian sanctions country in the EU, the EU trading statistics evidences.

According to Bloomberg, after Moscow had imposed embargo, Lithuania's export to Russia dropped to 38%. However, the export volume of Latvia and Poland to Russia has remained almost unchanged.

Experts believe that despite the toughest stance in EU on sanctions against Russia, Vilnius will try to return to the Russian market, as soon as these measures are abolished.

The reason is the fact that dairy products as well as other popular ones since the Soviet times, may be in demand only in Russia. As for the European markets, other players dominate there.

It is also noted that prospects of Lithuanian products' return to Russia are quite vague. Bloomberg gives an example of Georgia, which has not managed to restore its trading position on the Russian market so far.

As Pravda.Ru reported, many countries of the EU stand against extension of the anti-Russian sanctions.
