Russia Back n Cuba

Not since Soviet times, has Russia stepped up ties with Cuba. After a complete downfall of relations during perestroika and the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, Russia has worked hard in recent years to upgrade relations. The latest move by Moscow is a $1.32 billion loan to Havana on October 17 to refurbish the communist island's power plants, says RFE/RL.
