Cuba preparing for "all-people war" and economic difficulties

Cuba is preparing for a "all-people war", for the first time over many decades considering the danger of military aggression by the United States not as a potential, but as a real threat in the context of unprecedented US pressure on Venezuela, RISS expert Igor Pshenichnikov said. In addition, Cuba is taking urgent measures to survive the expected blockade by Washington. This can be concluded from the speech of the first Secretary of the Communist Party of Cuba Raul Castro at an emergency session of the Parliament of the Republic.

Russian-Cuban partnership gaining momentum

The first visit of the new Cuban leader Miguel Diaz-Canel to Russia shows that the level of strategic relations between the two countries, and especially its trade and economic cooperation, will continue to strengthen, RISS expert Dmitry Burykh pointed out. "Against the background of tumultuous relationship between Havana and Washington, we continue to actively cooperate with Cuban representatives. Russia feels Cuba's support on the most sensitive issues, including the Ukrainian crisis or the US sanctions pressure," he said.

New Cuba Constitution: how profound will the changes be?

After the end of almost 60 years of Castro rule for Cuba, and 57-year-old Miguel Diaz-Canel has become the new Chairman of the State Council, it was necessary to wait for further changes. The changes were not long in coming, RISS expert Igor Pshenichnikov pointed out. National Assembly of People’s Power of Cuba on July 22 at its meeting approved a constitutional reform. The first thing that stands out in this document is the recognition of the role of the market and private property, as well as the introduction of the post of President of the Republic.
