The practice of learning the Russian language in Cuba will be raised to a new level, the Cuban president Miguel Diaz-Canel promised. According to him, modern technologies will be used for this, TASS reports.

The head of state recalled that there was a daily broadcast on the radio that helped Cubans learn Russian when he was still a student. Diaz-Kanel is sure that this kind of things should be revived at the present stage. The development of relations with Russia, the strengthening of cooperation in the economic sphere and politics require that the number of speakers of the Russian language in Cuba increase, he said.

The president noted that relations between Russia and Cuba were based on mutual respect, friendship and solidarity. In his opinion, these are “not entirely accepted qualities for the modern world order”.

The visit of the Cuban leader to Russia began on October 27. The negotiations with the Russian president were included in it. 

Putin emphasized that Russia and Cuba were actively cooperating and supporting each other in the international arena. For the Cuban leader, this trip was the first visit to the European region after being elected to the presidency. He noted that our countries had strong historical ties.

Since the beginning of the unrest in Kazakhstan, some media and Telegram channels have speculated about the threat to Russians living in the Republic. Allegedly, the introduction of CSTO forces would put them in danger due to the rise of Kazakh nationalism. Izvestia talked to Russians living in the country to find out how the January events had affected their relations with Kazakhs. Interviewees claimed that the introduction of CSTO peacekeepers had no effect on interethnic dialogue because the Russians living in the Republic were not associated with Russia - they were locals. However, according to Izvestia's interlocutors, there is still intolerance at the mundane level.
