Another top dog from Grand Putinia is visiting Kuba, just a few days after the communist island paradise hosted Minister of the Exterior Sergei Lavrov. This time around, Czar Vlad the Invader has sent his Secretary of the Security Council of Russia, Nikolai Patrushev. According to Castro, Inc.’s Ministry of Truth, the topic of conversation was “security cooperation,” that is, spying, supporting terrorism, sending Cubans to fight in Ukraine, and whatever else might benefit Russia.

Unlike Lavrov, who only met with puppet “President” Trucutú Díaz-Canalla, Secretary Patrushev, met with King Raul, as well as with Trucutú and some other members of the military junta. In related news, Kuba has just sent 100 young Kubans to Grand Putinia. See other post.

General Raúl Castro and Miguel Díaz-Canel received on Monday the Secretary of the Security Council of Russia, Nikolai Patrushev, who is on a working visit to Cuba, the umpteenth of high-ranking Kremlin representatives to Cuba.

According to the official Prensa Latina, during the meetings, “the excellent state of relations and the high level of political dialogue” between the allies were noted.

In the exchange with Miguel Díaz-Canel, the leader thanked the visitor, who repeated the visit made in March 2023, for including the Island in a tour of countries in the region, accompanied by representatives of high spheres of Russia, “who contribute to the strengthening and expansion of bilateral relations.”

During the dialogue, Díaz-Canel said that “important steps have been taken in the links” between both governments, highlighting “the signing of documents related to Russian-Cuban collaboration.”

The leader celebrated the expansion of charter and regular flights between the two countries, as well as the fact that Russian tourism had the highest growth in 2023 in Cuba. Russia is currently the third largest tourist emitter to the Island.

“There is an excellent state of political-diplomatic dialogue, and this continues to expand, and we also find that progress is being made in many sectors of bilateral relations,” said Díaz-Canel.

The Cuban leader sent greetings to Vladimir Putin and applauded “his leadership on the international stage.”

For his part, Patrushev thanked Díaz-Canel for the reception and his words about Putin. He also conveyed greetings from the Russian president.

The Secretary of the Security Council of Russia described the state of bilateral ties as excellent and said that there is a very intense dialogue between Moscow and Havana in different areas.
