Argentina OKs Russian Bases

Argentina, the second-largest country in South America, agreed to allow Russian military bases on its territory. Whilst the USA and the whole world were fixated on the events taking place in the Ukraine, Russia stepped up its diplomatic efforts in the Western Hemisphere. President Putin discussed the idea of ​​military bases in South America with Defence Minister S K Shoigu in February. Russia is considering establishing military bases in Cuba, Nicaragua, Venezuela, and Argentina. In recent years, all these countries were active Russian allies. Argentina’s OK to Russian military bases seriously strengthens Moscow’s position in South America. According to the publication Guardian Liberty Voice, the USA actually slept through the appearance of Russian military bases. A Russian military presence in the Western Hemisphere confronts the USA with a difficult task and marks a reduction in Washington’s influence. The USA has never had sufficient funds for missile defence along its southern borders.
