KAZAN, April 22. /TASS/. Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said on Wednesday Russia was grateful to Cuba for its official stance on the crisis in Ukraine and the situation around Crimea.
"We highly value public statements of the Cuban leadership that spoke out in the same tonality as Russia," he said.
Cooperation of Russia and Cuba on the international arena is based on shared commitment to the establishment of a just order that must be based on observance of and respect for international law, a strong and central role of the United Nations, Rogozin told a session of the intergovernmental bilateral commission for trade, economic and scientific cooperation.
Rogozin said Russia remained in favor of an early lifting of anti-crisis sanctions against Cuba and anti-Cuban embargo imposed by the US. "We expect that all necessary for this decisions will be reached shortly," the deputy prime minister continued.
The removal of these artificial barriers will contribute to the development of all sectors of the Cuban economy and will have a positive influence on the development of Russian-Cuban trade and economic ties, Rogozin said.
