VILNIUS – Lietuvos Pastas (Lithuanian Post), Lithuania's state-owned postal company, and PayPost, its network of financial services, have on Tuesday suspended the service of money transfers to/from Russia and Belarus and will suspend commercial, i.e. business customers’ parcel service to those countries from Wednesday, March 2.

“We have decided to stop commercial shipments to Russia and Belarus, and we have not made any remittances since today, thus consistently contributing to restrictions on the movement of financial flows,” Asta Sungailiene, Lietuvos Pastas CEO, said in a press release.

Commercial shipments to Russia and Belarus will be suspended from March 2. Until then, the postal operator will seek to deliver those parcels despite the disruptions in international logistics with those countries.

Afterwards, the postal company will no longer accept parcels from business customers for delivery to Russia or Belarus.
