18.12.2014 - Comment by the Information and Press Department of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs on the easing in US-Cuba relations

We believe that the decisions and concrete steps taken by the US and Cuba to normalise bilateral relations meet the interests of both countries and global security in general. Washington’s decisions to stop groundless accusations against Havana of alleged support of terrorism, to restore diplomatic relations, to abandon at least some limits on US citizens’ trips to the island and the swap of sentenced persons are long overdue.

Question: This year, two organisations effectively got a second wind due to the crisis in Ukraine: NATO and the OSCE. What is the OSCE’s role with regard to Russia today?
