The head of the Kaliningrad region, Alikhanov, said that Poland was building a canal across the Baltic Spit to transport tanks.
The Governor of the Kaliningrad Region, Anton Alikhanov, is confident that the decision of the Polish authorities to dig a shipping canal through the Baltic Spit has nothing to do with the economy.
According to Alikhanov, Warsaw needs the canal in order to have a way for the transfer of tanks: “So that the tank regiments located near Elblag have a separate, independent, probably, opportunity to pass through this canal. That’s it, nothing else is needed!” “
According to the head of Kaliningrad, everyone understands this, including the head of the ruling party in Poland “Law and Justice” Jaroslaw Kaczynski.
The head of the Russian region noted that the ships of Poland and other countries never had problems with the passage to the port of Elblag, although they had to pass through the territorial waters of Russia. As Alikhanov noted: “Neither Moscow, nor the regional authorities have ever used any geography and calmly let through all the ships that wanted to pass through the strait.” The governor noted that the channel is being built in violation of international law and may cause environmental problems in the region, reports the Daily Storm.
In Poland, the media claim that the channel is primarily beneficial for the Kaliningrad region, since 90% of the turnover of the port in Elblag falls on the Russian region.
Construction of the canal began in 2019 and should be completed in 2022.
