Cuba’s fake president admits he can’t end fuel shortage, blames foreign suppliers for the crisis

From our Bureau of Socialist Blame-Shifting

As always, Castro, Inc. has denied that it is responsible for any of the inconveniences Cubans have to endure.

Trucutú Díaz-Canel announced yesterday that he and his fellow members of Cuba’s military junta have absolutely no way to end the current fuel crisis that is crippling the country because the shortage is being caused by those nations that supply Cuba with oil.

And, oh, there was also a foreign tanker that broke down and couldn’t deliver its diesel fuel. Yeah, and a million other things that can be blamed on anyone and everyone except Castro, Inc. Yeah . It’s all very complex, you know. Very, very complex, but not Castro, Inc.’s fault.

Could Castro, Inc.’s inability to pay foreign suppliers have anything to do with this crisis? Naaaah.

Cuban ruler Miguel Díaz-Canel Bermúdez acknowledged that his administration is unclear on how it will come out of the serious energy crisis that is hitting the country.

Regarding the current fuel shortage, which has caused huge queues of cars at gas stations in recent days, Díaz-Canel accused it of non-compliance with agreements by countries with commitments to supply gasoline to Cuba.

“They have also been in a complex energy situation and have not been able to meet those commitments,” he said.
According to the president, this has meant that, of the 500 to 600 tons of gasoline that the country consumes daily, the current coverage is less than 400 tons per day for all activities.

“This has nothing to do with the country’s inefficiencies, nor with problems of our energy institutions, it has to do with breaches that have occurred for very objective reasons that the countries that supply us with gasoline have,” he stressed.

Regarding the diesel situation, he explained that they had a guaranteed shipment that gave them continuity, but the ship that arrived in Santiago de Cuba broke down there and that is why it could not be unloaded on time, to later continue to other Cuban ports.

“That has caused us a delay in the way in which we have been able to distribute that fuel,” he added.

  1. Oh, it’s very clear how to get out of the hole Cuba is in, but since that requires getting rid of the “revolution” and everything connected with it, those in charge have to keep making ridiculous statements.
