“Instead of appeasing the Castros, the president of the United States [Joe Biden] should impose sanctions against the brutal regime!” added the representative of Florida, of Cuban origin, who was mayor of Miami-Dade for one decade.
Giménez’s pronouncement is a reaction to the news that Havana offered the right to use Cuban land for 30 years to Russian companies, in an unusual deal for foreign investors revealed last week during a meeting between officials and businessmen from both regimes.
