Russian military bases in Cuba might become a reality, Geo-Political Science Academy President Aleksandr Ivashov declared quoted by Ria Novosti. According to him, Russia might take such a decision in order to strengthen against US military and political pressures.

Russia's strategic move is seen to counter US military pressures in Europe. Ivashov declared that recent military developments might actually push Russia in taking such a decision due to the US anti-missile shield in Europe.
