Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodríguez thanked the solidarity aid received by his country during 2021, from compatriots residing abroad and friends of the Caribbean island.

On his Twitter social network account, the Minister of Foreign Affairs stressed that 135 donations arrived last year from 40 countries to the Antillean nation, especially medical supplies and equipment for the immunization process and the fight against Covid-19.

Given the economic difficulties that Cuba faces in acquiring all kinds of resources, due to the economic sanctions that the United States maintains intact despite the pandemic, solidarity organizations and friendly countries ratified their shows of support for the nation.

Precisely, the day before, a donation from Russia arrived in Cuba, consisting of 24 tons of medical supplies, according to the embassy of that country in this capital.

Only in the month of December and the first days of January, several loads have been delivered to the country from Japan, Russia and the Dominican Republic, just to mention a few examples.

As the Cuban Foreign Minister has highlighted on several occasions, the economic, commercial and financial blockade of the United States hinders the importation of necessary supplies for the country, and increases the cost of acquiring products in distant markets and through intermediaries.
