The visit is justified by the “historically friendly relations” between the two countries and is in strict compliance with international regulations, the statement highlighted.

“None of the ships carry nuclear weapons. Therefore, their stop in our country does not pose any threat to the region,” the statement said.

During their stay, Russian sailors are expected to pay a courtesy visit to the commander of the Cuban Revolutionary Navy and the governor of Havana, as mentioned in the statement.
