HAVANA, August 05. /ITAR-TASS/. A biggest mistake of the United State and Europe is their underestimating the Russian people, Cuban Revolution leader Fidel Castro said in an article published in Tuesday’s issue of the Granma newspaper.
“The chief mistake of the United States and Europe is their underestimating Russian citizens, who fought for their country during WWII like Spartans”, stressed Castro.
He noted that “new and inevitable forces” had emerged on the political map of the globe. In his words, Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa with their ties with Latin America, most of the Caribbean and African countries “are a force capable of cooperating with the rest of the world,” including the United States, European countries and Japan.
The leader of the Cuban Revolutions also touched upon the situation around the Malaysian passenger jet that had been downed in eastern Ukraine and the West’s seeking to put all the blame for that on Russia. “Putting the blame for shooting down the Malaysian plane on Russia stems from weakness. Russian President Vladimir Putin, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov would have never done anything that stupid,” Castro wrote in his article.
