Question of the day: Does Russia plan to recolonize Cuba?

Welcome to Havana, Obama!

Most of the world’s news media missed the signal given by Russia on the day Obama landed in Havana, when they docked a giant spy ship in the harbor.

Of course, no one cares about such things.  Old cars and baseball games are so much more important.

But Russia is stepping up its presence in Castrogonia.

Is re-colonization already underway?

Among the items on its re-colonization list: military bases on Cuban soil, plus the re-opening of its giant spy listening post.

Czar Vladimir Putin seems to be working out this deal quickly, as tensions with the Trumpinator increase.

But will Czar Vlad ever commit Russia to funding the Castro dynasty, as his predecessors in the old Soviet Union did?

Such a move would massively ramp up tensions between Washington and Moscow at a time when relations are already at their worst since the Cold War.

Many will see the coordinated call by two key parliamentary allies of President Putin as a sign that a new ultra-modern Cuban presence is intended by the Kremlin.

“Our base on Cuba, naval and aviation, should exist. It’s a key issue,” demanded Frants Klintsevich, deputy head of the Russian senate’s defence and security committee, according to Interfax news agency.

Russia should decisively react to the placing of US missile defence systems around its borders, he claimed.

Hours later the committee’s chairman Colonel-General Viktor Bondarev – until last month commander of Russian aerospace forces – echoed the call while also demanding a reopening of the former Russian military base in Vietnam.

“I believe under the condition of increased tension in the world and frank intervention in the internal affairs of other countries – Russia’s historical partners – our return to Latin America is not ruled out,” he said.

“Of course, this should be coordinated with the Cubans.”

The Russian base in the Caribbean named the Lourdes SIGINT Station was installed near Havana in 1962 – the year of the Cuban Missile Crisis – and was Moscow’s largest foreign facility of its kind.

  1. Bondarev’s uniform is dangerously close to Latrine standards. He looks like Harvey Korman dressed up as a general for a comedy skit on the old Carol Burnett show.
