Sergei Shoigu and Cuban Deputy Prime Minister Riccardo Cabrisas discussed military-technical cooperation between the countries

The next meeting of representatives of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation and officials of the Cuban government was held in Moscow. This time, Riccardo Cabrisas, Deputy Head of the Cabinet of Ministers of the Island of Freedom, arrived in Moscow. He met with Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu. According to the press service of the Russian Ministry of Defense, during the conversation with the Cuban delegation, cooperation in the military-technical sphere was discussed.


Sergei Shoigu and Cuban Deputy Prime Minister Riccardo Cabrisas discussed military-technical cooperation between the countries


Ministry of Defense of Russia quotes Sergei Shoigu:
A strong impetus to strengthening bilateral ties was given by the meetings of Russian President Vladimir Putin and Cuban State Council Chairman Raul Castro in July 2014 in Havana and in September 2015 in New York within the 70 jubilee UN General Assembly. The implementation of the Russian-Cuban agreements reached is our priority. My visit to Havana in February of this year confirmed the general desire to expand large-scale defense partnerships.


Shoigu announced the possibility of increasing cooperation in the naval sphere.

Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation:
A separate article is our military-technical cooperation, which is also developing quite actively and is dynamic and positive. We will talk about this during the work of the commission on military-technical cooperation.


Riccardo Cabrisas noted that the doors of Russian universities, including military medical ones, are open for Cuban youth, and added that Cuban specialists are working with colleagues from Russia in terms of creating vaccines. Cabrisas stressed that cooperation with the Russian Federation in the line of defense departments occupies a special position in Russian-Cuban relations.

After a recent visit to Moscow of representatives of the Cuban Defense Ministry in the Western media, materials appeared in which it was reported that the Cuban military were allegedly sent to Syria. At the Cuban embassy in Moscow, these statements were called nonsense.

    The base in Lourdes would be restored, And then the star-striped kids are already climbing into the Cuban garden.

      It is unlikely that something will work out. Castres will die and Cuba will fall into the hands of the Americans completely. Or the war will be on the island.

          Here you can agree, but the situation there is difficult. They at their own expense treated the children affected by Chernobyl at their own expense. Among other things, they were the only ones from the countries of the Union of the USSR who made such a beautiful gesture.

        I agree, because Chavez said: “Color revolutions are impossible only in one country - the USA, because there is no US embassy there” An embassy was opened in Cuba, now they will wait until Fidel stretches his legs, and there Raul will depart from power and Cuba will become 52 staff unfortunately.

          But our embassy is there too. Or have our cookie industry completely stopped? Or there is no one to carry cookies to the Plaza de la Revolucion to distribute? laughing Although, of course, in the era of ICBMs, Cuba’s importance as a bridgehead falls, but, for example, Caliber has not been canceled either ...

            Oldtimers are called both people who collect classic cars, and cars themselves older than thirty years. I'm a fan ... though the money is only enough for the model, but the collection has about a hundred cars from 40-60 years ..

        It turns out we listen through satellites and tracking vessels. Interestingly, you can listen to the fiber optic cable or is it done through computers? Rather, they will open our base of the Navy.

          About Americans it is known:
          The most modern submarine in the United States, which is engaged in the installation of equipment for intercepting traffic from fiber optic cables, is Jimmy Carter (tail number SSN-23), equipped for service on February 19, 2005. The $ 3,2 billion submarine is equipped with classified equipment for wiretapping fiber optic cables.

          There is no information about our information, which in general does not mean anything.

      You can have an airfield to guard the Navy base, and strategic bombers in Brazil or Argentina. It seems like not near the United States. You can build good roads and, if necessary, use them as a runway.

    Riccardo Cabrisas, Deputy Head of the Cabinet of Ministers of the Freedom Island, arrived in Moscow. He met with Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu.
    In politics, the positions are quite appropriate, so it's not just gathered to indulge. And even today there was a message that we are allocating 1,2 billion eureka to Cuba "for the construction of power plants." Here it is! the Americans opened an embassy in Havana a couple of months ago - they will again feed local dissidents with expired buns, and we will slowly and slowly again ... Everyone understands that Cuba will never repay such a debt to us, but no matter what kind of power plants they build, they will be under our no embassy buns will bake with a wing and without energy! Simple and effective ...

      Power plants will probably be Russian-made. So, 1,2 billion eureka will go to the needs of Russian industry. Such interest-free lending to its manufacturer. And this is better than taking in banks at crazy interest rates.

    After a recent visit to Moscow of representatives of the Cuban Defense Ministry in the Western media, materials appeared in which it was reported that the Cuban military were allegedly sent to Syria. At the Cuban embassy in Moscow, these statements were called nonsense.


    It’s a direct hint what to do, and maybe the Cubans will also want to train specialists in real conditions.

    I am glad that now Russia is acting quickly and efficiently. It will not surprise anyone anymore if a treaty is signed very soon, “on friendship and understanding” under which, including the Russian base, it will be created (consider, revived) in Cuba. And there Nicaragua will also pull itself closer to the Russia-Cuba alliance - there we are also showing interest.

    I believe that Cuba was explained how not to suffer when ours would be beaten up by the US priest in the event of an attack on Russia.

      Do not make me laugh. Cubans perfectly see what is happening in the world. And there are no options. Friendship with the United States is the fate of the United States. On the outskirts, they don’t understand this, in Cuba they understand perfectly.

    Yes, the KUBU had to be accepted into Russia for a long time, if you look at any missile defense systems at the borders of RUSSIA it would not have appeared. Let us hope that the Cubans will forget our scam.

      Let's hope that the Cubans forget our kidalovo.
      In the form of forgiveness of a 30-billion-dollar debt? I think any country will agree to such a scam.

        When it seems, you need to be baptized. Take an interest in what is called a "debt structure" - in a simple way - but for what and how much they owe.

        Much will be revealed to you.

          Instead of cleverness they would take and enlighten. Specifically about Cuba. I think not one will be interesting to me.
          You are in the know, right?

            Slightly.

            I give a beacon: the base in Lourdes was abandoned not because of malice, but because it had lost its relevance. Morally obsolete, so to speak. In connection with the progress in the technique of the probable opponent)

            I can’t do anything else, call request

            PS: about the "debt structure" - this will pull on the brochure. And five years for disclosure. Who needs it? wink

    Not all, but the vast majority of Cubans for friendship with Russia.

    In my opinion, not everything is so simple with Cuba. People like to appreciate Russians and remember people over 50. Young people gravitate toward the West not very much, but a start has been made. There are Canadians, Chinese and a little we are held in high esteem. Was there on May 14 but a look from the hotel and a couple of excursions. And so in Cuba klassss and for sure ... (my love)
