While the news cycle was obsessing on other things, this was news on Friday,
Russia ‘considering military bases in Cuba and Vietnam’
Russia is considering plans to resume its military presence in Vietnam and Cuba, the country’s deputy defence minister says.
Nikolai Pankov announced a review of the decision to close the two bases more than a decade ago.
. . .
Mr Pankov told the Russian parliament on Friday they were “dealing with the issue” of the two bases, Russian news agencies reported.
He declined to go into detail.
This would come as a surprise only to those who don’t recall that two years ago I posted that Russia was seeking military base(s) in Cuba, according to Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu.
