Last week, Venezuelan leader Nicolas Maduro traveled to Cuba to receive instructions from his mentors, Fidel and Raul Castro.
Upon returning, Maduro intensified repression against the Venezuelan people and ordered the violent and arbitrary arrest of the Mayor of Caracas, Antonio Ledezma.
All of this under the noses of the Obama Administration and its Congressional allies, who wish to ignore the fact Cuba continues to actively subvert democratic institutions in the Western Hemisphere.
Instead, they seek to continue rewarding the Castro regime for its nefarious activities -- a misguided strategy that will prove to have negative consequences for the entire region.
From Cuba's state media:
Cuba Confirms Solidarity with Bolivarian Revolution in Venezuela
Cuba condemned the coup attempt, assassination attempts and conspiracies denounced by the government of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro, while it confirmed its total support for the Bolivarian Revolution.
The Republic of Cuba has expressed its invariable solidarity and support for the people and government of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela and its legitimate president, Nicolas Maduro Moros, according to a statement from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MINREX).
The MINREX criticized the economic and media warfare waged against the Maduro government, and strongly rejected "statements and interference by the United States and the Organization of American States (OAS), which encourage and promote internal subversion, violating the sovereignty, independence and free determination of the Venezuelan people."
The MINREX's press release ratified that the Cuban collaborators working in Venezuela, as part of the different social missions, will remain in the country "in compliance with their duties under any circumstances, for the benefit of the brother, friendly and noble Venezuelan people."
