For the outright rudeness of the Lithuanian authorities towards the official Minsk, the Baltic cargo carriers paid the price, which began to complain more and more often about the tough inspection at the Lithuanian-Belarusian border by the Belarusian customs officers.
As Sputnik Belarus writes with reference to the Lithuanian media, the Lithuanian National Association of Carriers is complaining about the queues at the Belarusian customs, where hundreds of trucks stand for several days.
“There are about 200 trucks at the internal customs office in Minsk. Some for three days. And this is only in Minsk, others are at other customs offices, ” said Romas Austinskas, President of the Lithuanian Association of Road Carriers.
Logisticians explain the situation at the border by the unpreparedness of small crossings for a large flow of cars. But experts raise a reasonable objection, pointing out that such problems have not been observed before.
Most likely, the tightening of the access regime is connected with the desire of the President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko to bury the western border of the republic for a while because of the recent events.The decision on the extradition of Assange to the United States will not be taken until 2021
