Lithuania asks EU for $60mn compensation over Russian embargo

Lithuania has asked the European Commission to allocate €46 million ($60 million) as compensation for Russian food embargo losses. Slovakia has also asked the EU to lift some sanctions against Russia to partially allow exports.

Vilnius is expecting to receive at least part of the requested compensation, as Brussels sees Lithuania as one of the countries most affected by the Russian sanctions, Lithuania’s Minister of Agriculture Virginija Baltraitiene told LRT radio.
