______________________________

In an article he wrote posted on Tuesday on Cubadebate, Fidel Castro Ruz denied information published in the Russian media that Cuba allegedly refused to accept Edward Snowden due to American coercion. Castro said, “Nobody has the right to speak on behalf of Cuba”. He also noted that he admired Snowden’s actions, saying, “In my opinion, he’s rendered a service to the world, revealing the disgusting, vile policy of a powerful empire that’s lying and deceiving the world”. He noted that Cuba resisted American pressure for 54 years; it isn’t going to surrender. According to an unconfirmed report, Havana informed Moscow that it’d refuse landing rights to an Aeroflot airliner should Snowden be aboard it.
