The revelation that Russia has recruited hundreds of Cubans to fight in Ukraine underscores the desperation of Cuban citizens and the expansion of cooperation between Cuba and Russia. Cuban President Miguel Díaz-Canel declared that Russia has Cuba’s “unconditional support.”

Hudson Adjunct Fellow Daniel Batlle will moderate a panel examining the ramifications of the Cuba-Russia alliance and Havana’s decision to prevent more Cuban citizens from joining Russia’s war in Ukraine with Senior Fellow Can Kasapoğlu, Coordinator of the Assembly of Cuban Resistance Orlando Gutiérrez-Boronat, and Florida International University Adjunct Professor of International Relations Erich de la Fuente.
