Cuba is not about tourism or improved relations, it’s about cold, calculated Russia strategy. The courtship will be very fast if it doesn’t work, falling out of the news cycle like Ferguson did. If it sticks, you will see massive infrastructure infusions in Cuba paid for by the USA. Nothing more than well planned, anti Russian tribe building at a time when Putin is asking his people for two years to get back on track with the currency. This is an indicator of major geo decline coming. If Russia wins the back channel chatter, OPEC will rise again.
