Vadim Papura. One of the 1000s of communists and
 anti-fascists murdered by fascists in Ukraine
Havana, February 26, 2022. 

The Revolutionary Government of Cuba issued a statement on the conflict in Ukraine in which it advocates a solution that guarantees the sovereignty and security of all. 

“The American determination to continue the expansion of NATO towards the borders of the Russian Federation has led to a scenario, with implications of unpredictable scope, which could be avoided. 

The military movements carried out by the United States and NATO in recent months towards regions adjacent to the Russian Federation, preceded by the delivery of modern weapons to Ukraine, which together amount to a expansive military encirclement, are well known.

It is not possible to rigorously and honestly examine the current situation in Ukraine without carefully assessing the just claims of the Russian Federation to the United States and NATO and the factors that have led to the use of force and the non-observance of legal principles and international standards that Cuba subscribes to and vigorously supports and are an essential reference, particularly for small countries, against hegemonism, abuses of power and injustices.

Cuba is a country that defends International Law and is committed to the Charter of the United Nations, which will always defend peace and oppose the use or threat of force against any State.

We deeply regret the loss of life of innocent civilians in Ukraine. The Cuban people have had and have a close relationship with the Ukrainian people.

History will hold the US government accountable for the consequences of an increasingly offensive military doctrine outside NATO's borders, which threatens international peace, security, and stability.

Our concerns are reinforced by the decision recently adopted by NATO to activate, for the first time, the Response Force of that military alliance.

It was a mistake to ignore for decades the well-founded demands for security guarantees by the Russian Federation and to assume that the country would remain defenseless in the face of a direct threat to its national security. Russia has the right to defend itself. It is not possible to achieve peace by encircling or cornering the States.

The draft resolution on the situation in Ukraine not approved in the Security Council on February 25, which will be presented to the General Assembly, was not conceived as a real contribution to the search for solutions to the current crisis.

On the contrary, it is an unbalanced text, which does not take into account the legitimate concerns of all the parties involved. Nor is the responsibility of those who instigated or deployed aggressive actions that precipitated the escalation of this conflict recognized.

We advocate a serious, constructive, and realistic diplomatic solution to the current crisis in Europe, by peaceful means, which guarantees the security and sovereignty of all, as well as regional and international peace, stability, and security.

Cuba rejects hypocrisy and double standards. It must be remembered that the United States and NATO in 1999 launched a major aggression against Yugoslavia, a European country that they fragmented, with a high cost in lives, based on their geopolitical objectives, ignoring the UN Charter.

The United States and some allies have used force on multiple occasions. They invaded sovereign States to provoke regime changes and intervene in the internal affairs of other nations that do not bow to their interests of domination and that defend their territorial integrity and independence.

They are also responsible for the death of hundreds of thousands of civilians, which they call "collateral damage"; of millions of displaced people and of vast destruction throughout the geography of our planet as a result of their predatory wars.
