A few days ago, it was Vietnam. Today it’s Belarus. Castro, Inc. is forging military alliances with other dictatorships in order to make its repressive machinery more efficient and brutal. Needless to say, Russia and China remain its most powerful partners in crime, but some of their satellite dictatorships are now getting into the act.

But is this new plan to send Cuban soldiers to Belarus simply about training in repressive strategies, as is the case with Vietnam? Or could it be that these Cubans are the first of many who will end up fighting in Ukraine? After all, Belarus borders Ukraine and has been Czar Vlad the Invader’s silent partner in that horrendous war.

This new alliance is being touted as “the strengthening of mutually beneficial partnership relations between the Defense Ministries of Belarus and Cuba.” Question of the day: What does Cuba have to offer that could be beneficial to Belarus or Russia, other than soldiers?

Is Ukraine about to become Cuba’s new Angola? Stay tuned.

Loosely translated from Diario de Cuba

The authorities of Belarus and Cuba announced that the island’s military will receive training in the European nation, the ally most involved in Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and with which Havana is strengthening political and economic ties.

According to the official Belta agency, last Thursday the head of the Department of International Military Cooperation and Deputy Minister of Defense for International Military Cooperation, Valery Revenko, met in Minsk with the military, naval and air attaché at the Cuban Embassy in Russia and Belarus, Colonel Mónica Milian Gómez.

According to that brief report, “it is reported that the meeting took place during the XI International Exhibition of Weapons and Military Equipment MILEX. The parties discussed the strengthening of mutually beneficial partnership relations between the Defense Ministries of Belarus and Cuba.”

It was Revenko who, afterwards and through his Twitter profile, indicated about the meeting: “The main attention was paid to the training of Cuban military personnel in the Republic of Belarus and to the development of military cooperation between the two countries in a planned manner. “.

In addition, according to the photos shared by Revenko, the ambassador of Havana in Belarus, Santiago Pérez Benítez, was also at the meeting.

This is the first announcement of this type after last March the secretary of the Russian Security Council, Nikolai Pátrushev, visited Cuba and met with the top officials of the Revolutionary Armed Forces (FAR) and the Ministry of the Interior (MININT). , as well as with Miguel Díaz-Canel and Raúl Castro.

In Pátrushev’s meeting with General Lázaro Alberto Álvarez Casas, head of the Cuban MININT, they spoke about “cooperation in the field of security and threats from the West” and about the joint efforts of both governments to counter the calls. color revolutions” and the ”destructive activities” that, according to the representatives of the Russian and Cuban regimes, are carried out by non-governmental organizations.

This kind of meeting made it clear that the collaboration between Moscow and Havana, and now with Minsk, plus the one that has existed for a long time with China, is openly directed towards repression.

  1. Well, if Cubans are used as cannon fodder for Russia once again, at least the Russians will know why, meaning they won’t be so stupid as Mandela and company apparently were, and the world in general won’t give the Castronoids credit for it. It’s not much, but at least the business will be more honest.
