Moscow has again refused to rule out deploying military units to Cuba and Venezuela as tensions with the West over Ukraine simmer, saying it is “exploring options” to ensure Russia’s security.
Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said last week that he could “neither confirm nor exclude” the possibility of Russia sending missiles or other assets to Latin America.
If a sovereign nation wants to enter into military partnerships with other nations, does any other nation have the right to interfere?
When it's about NATO expansion - no, of course not. And to assert that the US is behaving aggressively and engaging in European Brinkmanship is absurd. Of course Ukraine and the Baltic states have every right to join NATO without Russian interference.
Do Cuba and Venezuela have the same rights to seek partners elsewhere? In Russia? China? The US recently criticized the expansion of belt and road projects into Latin America.
