HAVANA, November 30. /TASS/. A mourning procession with the ashes of Cuban revolutionary leader Fidel Castro has started moving from Havana to Santiago de Cuba in the east of the island where the ‘El Comandante’ will be buried.
In the coming days, the procession will be moving in the opposite direction of the route used by Fidel’s rebel army in January 1959 for a victory march after the overthrow of the dictatorship of Fulgencio Batista.
At that time, Fidel’s Freedom Caravan was greeted by dozens of thousands of cheering Cubans. This time, residents of the island nation will be bidding farewell to Fidel Castro: the procession with his ashes will move actually along the entire island. A mass action in memory of the ‘El Comandante’ is planned on Antonio Maceo Square in Santiago de Cuba on December 3. The burial ceremony will take place at 07:00 local time (12:00 p.m. GMT) on December 4 at the cemetery of Santa Ifigenia.
Fidel Castro died on November 25 at the age of 90. A nine-day national mourning ceremony has been announced on the island since November 26.
The Russian delegation at the mourning events in Cuba is led by State Duma speaker Vyacheslav Volodin.
