HAVANA TIMES – Drowned in an economic and migration crisis, shortages, debts and lawsuits, Diaz-Canel opens the doors of Cuba to the Government of Vladimir Putin.
After the official visit of a Russian delegation headed by Titov Boris Yrievich on January 18, 2023, it was announced that the Stolipin Institute of Economic Growth of Russia will participate in the preparation of a transformation program for the Cuban economy.
Cuba has become Russia’s best ally in Latin America. Likewise, it has received differentiated treatment from the Putin regime, ranging from the cancellation of a large part of the debt that Cuba maintains with Russia, to the sending of a delegation of businessmen obedient to the Kremlin’s instructions.
On the other hand, this week Miguel Díaz-Canel was criticized during the VII Summit of the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC) held in Argentina as a president who does not respect democracy, institutions, or human rights. The Cuban ruler, this time, did not have the company or support of his closest allies in the region, Nicolas Maduro and Daniel Ortega.
