Russian President Putin Visits Nicargua’s Daniel Ortega

TODAY NICARAGUA NEWS – Analysts in international issues described this past weekend’s visit to Nicaragua by Russian President Vladimir Putin as a support to the Government of Daniel Ortega. According to journalist and political analyst William Grigsby, the statesman’s visit to the country was a political gesture and recognition that Nicaragua is Russia’s strategic partner in the region.

Putin visited three Latin American countries over the weekend in a whirlwind tour aimed at demonstrating Moscow’s resilience as an international power despite Western attempts at isolation stemming from the Ukraine crisis.

Putin began his trip with visits to Cuba and Argentina, before traveling on to Brazil in time for the World Cup Final on Sunday. He signed a range of deals along the way, including agreements to establish Glonass positioning stations in each country, as well as a nuclear power plant development deal with Argentina.

Putin, during his almost-more-than-one-hour stay in Nicaragua met with Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega, who referred to Putin’s arrival as a “historic visit.”

“It is like a ray of light, like a flash of lightning. This is the first time a Russian president has visited Nicaragua,” he told Putin in his opening remarks. The two leaders discussed different issues related to cooperation.

Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said in February that Russia was in talks with Nicaragua, Venezuela and Cuba, among others, to allow its navy ships dock at their ports. That same month, Reuters reported that a Russian intelligence-gathering vessel had docked at a port in Havana.

In statement on Channel 4’s morning program “En Vivo,” Grigsby said what relevant is that the leader of one of the world’s powers and an important actor of the international policy makes that recognition.

On the other hand, journalist Adolfo Pastran stated that this is also an example of the coincidences from both governments in different international issues, such as the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and the situation in Ukraine.
