Cuba Reaffirms Intervention in Venezuela, Supports Russian Intervention in Ukraine

Thursday, March 6, 2014
We express the invariable and total solidarity to the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela and its constitutional President Maduro, to the government and the political-military leadership before the foreign interference, especially the United States, the attempts to defeat violently the legitimate government elected democratically, the events organized by fascist groups that have provoked deaths, wounded and destruction, the sabotage and the economic aggression and the transnational media campaigns. Cuban collaborators will continue working to the benefit of the Venezuelan people and will comply with their duty under any circumstance as it was demonstrated by their presence during yesterday’s civic-military parade.
Those who threat the Russian Federation with sanctions and reprisals are the governments who hastened a change of regime in Ukraine and have previously launched wars of conquest, interfere or intervene directly in the internal affairs of different States that do not go along with their interest of domination and defend their sovereignty and independence. Cuba rejects the hypocrisy, the double standard and the manifested aggressiveness of NATO’s actions and discourse related to this matter.
