HAVANA, October 22 (Itar-Tass) —— Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich has been awarded the Order of Jose Marti. Chairman of the State Council and the Council of Ministers of Cuba Raul Castro presented this highest award of the country to him. The awarding ceremony was shown on local state television on Friday evening.
The Ukrainian leader was given this award for a personal contribution to the development of relations between the two countries, the Cuban side noted at the ceremony. Yanukovich is staying in the Island of Freedom with a state visit which will end on October 23.
