This Tuesday the Venezuelan Ambassador to the United States, Carlos Vecchio, denounced that Nicolás Maduro’s dictatorship of continues to send millions of dollars in oil to Cuba so that Miguel Díaz Canel’s regime continues to repress the thousands of Cubans who demand freedom under the motto of “Homeland and Life”.
“While the Cuban regime represses his people, the dictator Maduro continues to send it resources to continue its repression. The oil shipments sent by Maduro to Cuba from January to July 2021 totaled 10.7 million barrels to date, the equivalent to 502 million U.S. dollars,’ said Mr. Vecchio through his Twitter account.
The diplomat of the Interim Government of President Juan Guaidó made it clear that once again it is clear that international sanctions are not what prevents Maduro from solving the crisis and meeting the needs of Venezuelans, but the corrupt dictatorship that he has established in Venezuela .
“While the people of Venezuela are in a queue, Maduro sends Cuba approximately 60 thousand barrels a day of oil products (gasoline, diesel and fuel oil). Since 2020 Maduro has sent more oil to Cuba than the value of the stored (Venezuelan) gold in London. It is not the sanctions, it is the dictatorship.”
Amb. Vecchio added, “our country without supplies, without diesel, without gasoline and Maduro sends Cuba what Venezuela needs. And then they say it’s the sanctions. The worst sanction is Maduro’s miserable dictatorship. Double criminals, they repress in Venezuela and repress in Cuba.”
The diplomat has insistently ratified his support, and that of Guaidó’s Interim Government, for the Cuban people in their fight for freedom and the end of the repression and persecution deployed by Díaz Canel’s regime. “The freedom of Cuba is the freedom of Venezuela and it is the freedom of Nicaragua. They are all the same cause. Long live a free Latin America. Homeland and Life!” He concluded.
