According to the border service, the wagons with ammonium sulfate were sent on October 17, 2022 and arrived at the destination station on October 27. On November 2, after unloading in the Kaliningrad region, empty cars went back. However, on November 4 and 5, at the Kybartai station (Lithuanian railway), they were put aside from traffic by the Lithuanian state border guard service. Now the wagons must be uncoupled and returned to the Kaliningrad region, only after that the trains will be able to pass through the territory of Lithuania to Belarus.
