Russia confirms plans to deploy military bases in Cuba and Venezuela

Sergei Lavrov confirmed Russia's intention to deploy its troops in the "backyard" of the United States.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov confirmed his intentions to deploy a large grouping of Russian troops on the territory of such Latin American states as Venezuela and Cuba. According to Sergei Lavrov, at the moment there are no negotiations between these countries, however, Russia allows the deployment of its military and military infrastructure in Venezuela and Cuba "in response to NATO's expansion to the East." Given NATO's refusal to expand, Cuba and Venezuela may well receive Russian nuclear weapons, including this refers to the grouping of the Russian Navy and the strategic aviation of the Russian Aerospace Forces.

“We will not be like the Americans who say, “You must remove troops from this part of your sovereign territory, otherwise we will announce sanctions against you. But this is just indecent. We will react to the real development of events", - Sergey Lavrov said, stressing that the deployment of Russian military bases in these countries could become a reality.

The United States, in turn, has already reacted to the statement of the Russian Foreign Minister about the likely deployment of Russian military in Cuba and Venezuela, noting that this will immediately receive a response from the United States.

"The United States will give a strong response if Russia moves towards the deployment of military force in Latin America", - said White House national security adviser Jake Sullivan, probably referring to the reciprocal deployment of US military bases and forces in Ukraine and the Black Sea.

At the moment, the situation in relations between Russia and NATO is very tense, since it was expected that within the framework of the meeting in Brussels, the Alliance would accept Russian conditions, however, NATO decided to go for a confrontation.
