Cuba 21st century denounces "the unquestioning obedience of the regime to Russian imperialism"

The Cuba 21st Century think tank urges Cubans in the diaspora to “become aware of their power and organize as such to speak as an independent actor with a single voice” in the face of the increasingly close alliance between Russia and the regime of the Island.

“In this critical hour, the diaspora -those millions of Cubans excluded from national political and economic life and the hundreds of thousands on a blacklist who are denied even visiting the country where they were born-, beyond the multiple organizations of political opposition to the Castroism that make it up, could and should take a position as a collective actor to face this new betrayal of national sovereignty,” they asserted in a statement made public this Monday.

They are accompanied by a dossier, where the organization denounces the exclusion of these Cubans in the plans for change on the Island and recounts their vicissitudes and achievements, from the first exile after the triumph of the Revolution, in 1959, to the present day. For Cuba Siglo 21, “the Cuban diaspora – today excluded and exiled – constitutes, together with the talent of Cubans on the Island, the most reliable engine to start the takeoff towards the free and prosperous Cuba that we deserve.”

He think tank has reiterated what he has been warning since January: that Moscow and Havana are “implementing a strategic fraud” against the United States and the European Union, and selling as an opening “what is nothing other than the transition to a mafia state with a market like Putin’s.”

“The Cuban diaspora – today excluded and exiled – constitutes, together with the talent of Cubans on the Island, the most reliable engine to start the takeoff towards the free and prosperous Cuba that we deserve”

In its statement, Cuba Siglo 21 recalled that Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitri Chernishenko has requested “modifications” in Cuban legislationbefore which the president Miguel Díaz-Canel has shown “unconditional support”, to adapt the Island to the changes that Moscow is asking of them.

“Not those that the people have demanded on July 11 in the street,” the NGO points out, referring to the massive protests of 2021, “but Putin from Moscow.”

For Cuba Siglo 21, “it is particularly humiliating and shameful that the will to reform all current legislation is announced at the request of a foreign power that, to top it off, is waging at this precise moment a genocidal and imperialist war of aggression against a sovereign country in Europe”, they say, alluding to the invasion of Ukraine.

The text also states that military cooperation will also take place with Belarus, an ally of Vladimir Putin, according to Cuba Siglo 21, to ensure that the Cuban Ministry of the Interior “is prepared to crush popular democratic revolutions on the island as Putin did before precisely in Belarus”.

In addition, they include in their report the possibility that Russia will send “rockets carrying nuclear warheads” to the island, something that was ventured last March by the former Cuban general Rafael del Pino in other dossier for Cuba 21st century.

Havana, the organization continues, “comparatively values ​​and prioritizes the Russians over the Cuban people and their diaspora.” The economic and fiscal advantages granted to the businessmen of the Eurasian country – such as the transfer of land in usufruct for 30 years – and the obedience to “Russian imperialism” are a sign, for Cuba Siglo 21, of the “desperation” of the Havana regime ” before the imminence of its possible final fall”.

This, says Cuba Siglo 21, are “crumbs that in no way alter the exclusion from national life of several million Cubans.”

He think tank also denounces the recent immigration modificationswhich among other things extend the validity of the passport up to ten years and which lower the cost of some consular procedures for Cubans residing abroad, with the aim of “making it easier for them to travel to the island more often and spend their money on tourist consumption”.

This, says Cuba Siglo 21, are “crumbs that in no way alter the exclusion from national life of several million Cubans.”

For this reason, they insist on addressing the diaspora, to “take a position as a collective actor to face this new betrayal of national sovereignty.”

The objective of Cubans abroad, sums up the NGO “is none other than that of the rest of the nation of which they are a part”, that is, “to achieve a democratic, prosperous and free country in which all Cubans participate “.

This can only be achieved, concludes Cuba Siglo 21, “by means of a radical transformation that puts an end to all the obstacles and discriminations that broke the nation into two halves and have prevented until today their agreement to promote the development of the country.”
