Nicaragua approved the deployment of Russian military bases and cruise missiles on its territory

The President of Nicaragua allows the construction of Russian military bases on its territory.

The President of Nicaragua, Daniel Ortega, signed a decree according to which the deployment of Russian military bases and deployment of cruise missiles will be allowed in the country. This decision could become an important factor in the geopolitical balance of the region, especially given its close proximity to the United States.

Geographically, Nicaragua is located less than 3.000 km from Washington, which makes it a strategic partner in terms of military installations. With such proximity, missiles stationed in Nicaragua can reach the US capital in no time.

Previously, the deployment of Russian military bases and facilities in the countries of Central and Latin America was actively considered by the Russian side, however, it is still unknown whether Russia will agree to take such steps now.
