Cuba without Castro Brothers: What to Wait for?
On April 19, 2018, the National Assembly of the People’s Power of Cuba appointed Miguel Díaz-Canel as Chairman of the State Council. He replaced Raúl Castro, brother of Fidel Castro, the country’s leader until 2008. Does the Island of Freedom enter a “New Era,” which the United States was waiting for, or will the new leader continue Castro’s path of development? Vladimir Sudarev, professor at the Moscow State Institute of International Relations, discussed the appointment in an interview with valdaiclub.com.
