Never mind those pesky protesters in eastern Cuba. Minor distraction. The Russian invasion is on, full tilt, and shows no signs of slowing or retreating. If the protests continue, you can count on Castro, Inc. to squelch them. Cuba’s new owners won’t stand for such nonsense.

Russia has set its sights on broader economic and trade ties with Cuba.

More than a hundred Russian companies have started operating in Cuba in the past year, Dmitry Chernyshenko, a Russian deputy prime minister, said on Friday, according to state news agency TASS.

The companies are involved in various sectors, including heavy industry, energy, banking, agriculture, IT and tourism, Chernyshenko said at an intergovernmental meeting between Russia and Cuba. He did not mention any companies.

Some Russian banks are also considering opening representative offices in Cuba, Chernyshenko added. He did not name any banks but said the rollout of Russia’s Mir card in Cuba last year was a milestone.

The developments will boost bilateral trade, he said.

“Cuba is a reliable ally of Russia,” Chernyshenko said, according to an online message from the Russian government. “Today’s meeting confirms the policy of strengthening Russian-Cuban relations.”

  1. I know it’s typical and no surprise, but the fact remains Russia has absolutely no shame, NONE, about its very major role in Cuba’s fall and ruination. All it cares about is getting whatever benefit it can off Cuba.

    Talk about degenerates.
