Cuba condemns Western sanctions against Russia, says president

MOSCOW, SANA- Cuba condemns Western sanctions against Russia, the causes of the Ukrainian conflict should be sought in the policies of the US and NATO, Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel, who is on a visit to Moscow, said at a plenary session of the State Duma on Tuesday.

“Cuba vigorously condemns the sanctions unilaterally imposed against the Russian Federation. The causes of the current conflict in the region must be sought in the aggressive policy of the US and in NATO’s expansion to the borders with the Russian Federation,” he said.

Diaz-Canel stressed that Havana, while repeatedly condemning sanctions against Russia, was in favor of a negotiated solution to the conflict in Ukraine.
