 Russian officials say Russia is seriously considering building a military base in Cuba.


According to Russian news agency, Putin said the talks were friendly, pragmatic and constructive, and Russia would provide transportation infrastructure construction assistance to Cuba. Putin said that Russia will build a satellite positioning system ground station in Cuba, which will enable Cuba to access remote sensing earth satellite service technology. He also said that the Russian and ancient peoples would unite in their struggle for the immediate and unconditional lifting of the United States blockade against Cuba. After the talks, Russia and Cuba signed a joint statement on common position in international affairs. The statement said that unilateral sanctions and unsubstantiated accusations against other countries were factors of instability. It expressed deep regret and serious concern about the intention of the United States to unilaterally withdraw from the Guidance Treaty and urged the United States to reconsider this decision.

In talks with Matveyenko, chairman of the Russian Federal Council (the upper house), and Walokin, chairman of the Russian Duma (the lower house), Dias-Carnell expressed Cubas support for Russia and condemned the unfair measures taken by the United States against Russia and Cuba. Matveyanko and Walokin said Moscow opposed unfair sanctions against Cuba and criticized the United States for using sanctions as a political tool. We should all oppose this sanctions policy.

Cubas new leaders extend their hands to their old allies. CNN called it Trump government has been stepping up sanctions against ancient times, and in this context, Dias-Carnells visit was intended to seek external support. At the same time, the visit can provide a platform for Russia to express solidarity with Cuba, which is also confronting the United States. Trafkin, editor-in-chief of the Russian magazine Latin America, said that maintaining friendly relations between Russia and Cuba has always been at the throat of the United States, and the two countries share the same position in opposing American hegemony. The Trump Administrations position on Cuba forces it to seek new allies in Europe and resume contacts with its old allies, including Russia. According to the Russian Independent newspaper, when Russian Deputy Prime Minister Borisov, who is in charge of defense industry, visited Havana this week, the two countries signed an agreement worth $265 million, and Cuba may buy helicopters and armored vehicles from Russia.

The cold war is coming again? On Wednesday, Shamanov, chairman of the Duma Defense Commission of Russia, said that Russia was seriously considering establishing a military base in Cuba when Russia and Gulf were about to hold high-level talks and the United States planned to withdraw from the Guidance Treaty, according to Newsweek. Russian military expert Ovchenikov believes that Russia has geopolitical interests in Cuba in the context of the withdrawal of the US from the Guidance Treaty and does not rule out the possibility of Moscow rebuilding its military base in Cuba, but it may not necessarily build a large base and deploy missiles aimed at the United States. Russian military expert Gariev said Russia may redeploy reconnaissance and radio forces in Cuba to protect the interests of Cuba and Russia. However, Dabakiyan, an expert at the Latin American Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences, doubts that this will further deteriorate relations between the United States and Russia. Although U.S. -Cuban relations eased during the Obama administration, after Trump came to power, relations between the two countries deteriorated again. Voice of America said the United Nations General Assembly adopted a resolution on the same day urging the United States to end the economic blockade imposed on Cuba for more than half a century. This is the 27th consecutive year that the United States adopted such a resolution, but the resolution is symbolic and only the United States has the right to lift the blockade. The vote highlighted Washingtons isolation on the issue, but Haley, the Permanent Representative of the United States to the United Nations, said the United States did not care about isolation. In addition, U.S. National Security Assistant Bolton said Thursday that the United States plans to ban Americans from trading with more than 20 Cuban companies linked to the Cuban military.
