Russian warships visit Cuba for the first time since Soviet era

A group of battleships of Russia’s Northern Fleet will arrive at the port of Havana visiting from Nicaragua on December 19. “It will be the first visit of the Russian battleships to Cuba since the era of the Soviet Union. The visit will last till December 23,” a senior official of the Russian Naval Command Igor Dygalo said.

“The visit to Cuba will mark a considerable step in strengthening and developing ties between the naval departments of the two countries,” Interfax quoted Dygalo as saying.

The command of the group of the Russian battleships will hold meetings with the commander of the Cuban navy, the mayor of Havana and spokespeople for the Russian embassy. The Cuban population will have an opportunity to attend the Russian ships, Dygalo said. Russian sailors will lay wreaths to the monument of Jose Marti and to the monument of the Soviet internationalist warriors.

The warships of Russia’s Northern Fleet complete their visit to Nicaragua and depart from the port of Blufields Monday. “It was a friendly visit to Nicaragua, but we also delivered the humanitarian cargo to the nation,” Dygalo said.

The Western media set out their concern about Russia’s military activities in the traditional zone of the US influence. Commenting Dmitry Medvedev’s visit to Latin America, Western publications wrote that the Russian president, like his predecessors, was playing games in America’s backyard. Many newspapers wrote that Moscow had an intention to create a counterbalance to Washington in the region to reduce America’s influence there. The Russian administration wants to return to the Cold War era situation, newspapers wrote.

Representatives of the North Korean administration issued a statement saying that the United States and its allies have lost the "political and military confrontation" to the DPRK

In recent years, genetics has become a cutting-edge science, not only in the professional field of biology, but also because of the enormous social reach of its discoveries and approaches. Not in vain, practically every day the press offers us the discovery of a new gene, a new hereditary determinant directly involved in the manifestation of diseases or physical characteristics.
