Lithuania, Gazprom team up in vital agreement

(MENAFN) Gazprom, the Russian energy behemoth has inked a 10-year-deal with the European small nation, Lithuania, according to the latest reports.

The contract consists of transporting gas to Kaliningrad in a move likely to soothe the Kremlin's concerns over its westernmost outpost's energy security.

Basically, a pipeline that runs through Lithuania is the only route to transport gas from Russia to Kaliningrad, the heavily militarized region along the Baltic coast.

Moreover, reliance on Lithuania for the transit of natural gas to Kaliningrad had ignited concern in Russia amid amplified east-west tensions over Ukraine.
