  • Russian navy is interrupting Lithuanian seacable laying operation.

    Lithuania summoned Russiam ambassador after Russian navy ships forced Lithuanian ship protecting undersea energy cable laying to change course. Cable is supposed to link baltic states to Sweden removing their need to import electric energy from Russia. Two previous diplomatic protests were ignored. Sweden announced its supporting Lithuania on the issue. Both nations consider those incidents to be breach of international martime laws. Russian navy ships were attempting to disrupt the cable laying operation several times.

      Did this happen in international waters? Klaipeda is a good 50km from Russian territory and the cable laying would be heading away from Russian territory.

        Yes. There are some rummors that Lithuanians asked for NATO states military escort if diplomatic efforts fail to prevent further incidents.
