    Cubans are not Bulgarians and not "Non-Brothers", they remember how we kneaded together Blood-G ...- Sand and Sugar. And in Cuba and Angola and in a number of other countries. The Cubans even had a motto - Give your blood for the Russian!
    I hope that Cuban gratitude will result not only in the presentation of commemorative and well-deserved medals to our veterans, but also in cooperation now and in the future. Cubans remember very well how many "nishtyaks" the United States gave them during the blockade of the "Island of Freedom" and the current policy of "Propitious from Uncle Sam" should not mislead them. We will look, but the Cubans passed the test for lice in so many years without breaking and not pushing the rolls in front of the "World Hegemon", unlike some ...

      , but the test for lice Cubans have passed for so many years without breaking and without pushing the rolls before the "World Hegemon", unlike some ...

      The exam for Cuba is just beginning. Restoration of diplomatic relations with SGA, just the beginning of the check. Green pieces of paper do their rotten business. And the youth of Cuba, like all the rest of the youth of the world, including ours, are well-behaved on propaganda on social networks! It is difficult for us (on the forum) to judge the intricacies of politics with Cuba, not knowing all the intricacies of diplomacy (after all, can a debt write-off of 30 billion say something ?! "

        Of course no one will like this comment of mine here - but the truth is the truth
        About "push the rolls apart"

        Unfortunately, it was we - the USSR - with Gorbach and other traitors who "pushed them apart". China, North Korea, Cuba and the Bolivarian countries - all watched with horror as we destroy our country and surrender all positions to the USA and the West

        There were articles - very interesting - by Chinese analysts about those years of betrayal - and the betrayal was called openly. This is probably why Gorbach will never visit either China or Cuba, etc.

        Until recently, Russia pursued a pro-Western and liberal policy - this must also be recognized. Draining Libya for example. Refusal to support Iran, the DPRK, etc. - everyone was afraid to lose their image in the eyes of the Western owners. "We are Western, too" - it was

        Sobering up came later, when Russia realized that it would not be accepted into the "west"
        With the Georgian conflict 2008, with Ukraine

        Cuba (like a number of other countries), after the death of the USSR, showed amazing resilience and did not bend under the United States even without any "roof"

        Moreover, Cuba has become the nucleus and spiritual leader for 9 countries of the Bolivarian Union. then they were supported by China - and now they are no longer afraid of anything. Well, plus Russia - as a "prodigal son" returned to old friends (VVP's visit to Central America - Fidel's visit)

        Moreover - China is going to dig an analogue of the Panama Canal there in Nicaragua

      Here it is worth reminding the Cubans of the last appeal of Slobodan Miloshchevich to the Russians:
      “Russians! I now appeal to all Russians, the inhabitants of Ukraine and Belarus in the Balkans are also considered Russians. Look at us and remember - they will do the same to you when you disconnect and give slack. West - a rabid chain dog clings to your throat. Brothers, remember the fate of Yugoslavia! Don't let me do the same to you! ”

    The father (Belarusian) served in Cuba during the Cuban missile crisis as an ordinary tank commander, because of this his personal file was secret, he did not have any awards or other honors for this, he simply fulfilled his duty to the Motherland. Only a photo with his inscription on the back "February 1, 1963 on the island of Freedom Cuba" remains in memory.

    Until the humpback handed over the Cuban combined-arms brigade (there were tankers, and air defense, and BM-21, and infantry), a lot of people served there! And until the 90s, they went there on motor ships "senior and junior specialists in the harvesting of sugar cane" laughing Over a thousand on the boat! Cruise due to MO-dream! True, on the approach at first always met the American ship of war ...

    My grandfather and grandmother at that time worked in Cuba for two years as civilian specialists, geophysicists.
    There are still starfish, corals, exotic shells that are different for us, coconut crafts, there is a model of some Cuban boat made of wood (obviously not an aspen) with sails.
    They did not participate in the operation "Anadyr", they flew by plane across the North Pole, for its flight everyone was then given certificates.
