USA softens sanctions against Cuba

32
Washington announced the easing of several decades of sanctions against Cuba. After the mutual opening of diplomatic missions of the two countries on their territories, the US authorities lifted the ban on the opening by American companies of their representations on Liberty Island. Now American financial structures will be able to operate in Cuba through their subsidiaries. Does this mean that the first NGOs with a "bright human rights" orientation may appear in Cuba very soon? ..

USA softens sanctions against Cuba


In addition, American companies will be able to create joint projects with Cuban structures, the overwhelming majority of which are state-owned. Русская служба BBC reports that Washington is going to open regular flights between the cities of the United States and Liberty Island. Also, by the end of the year, direct mail between the two states will resume.

The US authorities report that they are "working out" the so-called roadmap, according to which cooperation with the official Havana may deepen. It is noteworthy that Washington does not impose special conditions on Cuba in the style of “improve the human rights situation,” as the United States usually does. This can only say about one thing: Washington realized that it would not be possible to change the Cuban system by isolation, but decided that here, too, it could try to implement the Maidan option.

In this regard, I recall how some time before the invasion of the "coalition" in Libya, American leaders shook hands with Muammar Gaddafi and announced plans for "beneficial cooperation" ...

          I'm sorry for Cuba. It looks like, if we measure by our recent history, they are approaching 1986, perestroika. Coal Kill and expand democracy. Then peace-friendship-gum, then the first McDonald's, then everything that can be sold. Then Yeltsinoband and further - emptiness ...

          Do you already have Gorbachev and Yeltsin in Cuba? Until it's too late, until they ruined what Fidel had been building for 65 years - to hang it nearby, on one birch, sorry, palm tree.

          As the example of our closest neighbors shows, Cuba, too, will not be able to avoid our mistakes. If it is autumn 1992 in Ukraine, and they do not want to see that we then went all this way of Western aid, plunder and collapse, then what can we say about Cuba - "Kubadaleko, Kubadaleko - Kuuubaryadom, Kuubaryadom" ... Remember , was the song like that? ...

      Never.
      This is a well-worked and well-equipped testing ground for torture and secret confinement of "uncomfortable persons". In order to put a person there, no legal basis at all is required. Moreover, no, even the most democratic, journalists are allowed in Guantanamo, and therefore you can do whatever you want with the prisoners. We only know about the tip of the "iceberg", I am sure that the rumors that are being heard about this place can be safely multiplied by ten.
      True, the author of the article is clearly worried about non-profit organizations. Cuba is not at all a modern "democratic" Russia, and the Cubans do not at all try to look "holier than the Pope" - they are simply not interested in it. Banned, and all the cases. Try to say your "I want" against the words of Fidel's heirs - you can lose your head. And in the style beloved by the Americans - behind the scenes.

      The Americans launched a vigorous activity only due to the fact that the Comandante is many years old and he is no longer in good health! They are waiting, vile, for his death and prepare the ground for a color revolution in advance, bribing Cubans with their sugary rhetoric! Our Foreign Ministry urgently needs to mobilize work that Cuba would remain in our sphere of influence - and so we made a bunch of mistakes against our friends!

            See for yourself how many grandiose projects are being launched: T-14, T-50, a new nuclear reactor, a cosmodrome, preparations for the World Cup-18, Ratnik, Ratnik-2, import substitution in the field of rocket construction and aircraft construction (hello from Ukraine , from Motor Sich), the agricultural sector, T-90MS ... and that's not all. I'm not sure that the Russian budget can handle all this, even without the help of friends.

              Cuba does not need to be fed, you must always keep your finger on the pulse to bring all kinds of assistants from the State Department to clean water. Do not let it out of your influence, as it was in Ukraine. There is more work for the media and the diplomatic corps, the money is not so huge

          Not everything is so sad, besides our Foreign Ministry and local common sense, there is also the Chinese Foreign Ministry and Chinese interests, and Chinese money too! The Chinese are tightly engaged in Cuba: a bunch of Chinese on the streets (on weekends), Chinese flags next to Cuban flags, new cars ALL Chinese, etc.

    Sufficiently competent information, suggestive.
    Although one can immediately say that for Russia, the soft "creeping" of the Yankees into Cuba is not "pleasant" news, but I would like to believe that it is not a surprise.
    It is no secret that the standard of living in Cuba, according to some indicators, is several times different from that in the West. And naturally, first of all, the Yankees will concentrate their main "ideological blow" on the youth.

    Yeah, there is something to break the brains of the Cuban leadership what
    You just need to analyze all the actions of the United States in the last couple of decades in all countries of the world, where regimes changed, colorful revolutions broke out, and so on. Nonsense ... Then it will become clear what this kind of warming of relations will lead to. And we must take into account that for half a century America has been openly trying to change the situation in Cuba. So this kind of warming means one thing - not a stick, but a carrot with all the ensuing consequences ...
    It's a pity for the Cubans, because they also have “comrades” greedy for babos at the top (like our humpbacked one), who will promise from mountains of gold from this “warming”, but in fact will destroy the country ...

    How many of you have been to Cuba in recent years? At least as a tourist?

    In addition to the coastal areas where tourists are, where it is clean and orderly, the rest of the island is poverty, banditry and prostitution (easy accessibility to the tormentors). Almost all Cubans have relatives in the United States who fled there during the blockade. So I am happy for the people of Cuba, I hope that soon the investments will transform it and turn it into a real paradise island not only for foreign tourists, but also for the inhabitants of the island of freedom itself.

    Castro's time is over, and the fact that politics have changed is a normal human phenomenon. Cuba was unable to build its economy without the help of the Soviet Union in 25 years.
