Russian Naval Ship Docks in Cuba
The Russian warship Perekop docked at the port of Havana in Cuba on July 11, the latest sign of strengthening ties between the two Cold War-era allies.
- The vessel carried more than 100 cadets from Russian naval schools.
- It will remain in Cuba for four days.
- Russia and Cuba have a decades-long history of allying against America.
- In recent months, their economic and political relationship has deepened.
Espionage: The Russian visit to Cuba comes just a month after the United States government declassified intelligence revealing that Russian ally China has built an operational spy base in Cuba.
America endangered: Meanwhile, both Russia and China are also strengthening their positions in Venezuela and Nicaragua. Like Cuba, these nations lie alongside vital U.S. shipping routes.
In March 2019, the Trumpet warned:
[A] foreign power that controls the Caribbean could cripple the U.S. economy by restricting its access to oceanic shipping.
This geographic reality is why Russia and China want to challenge U.S. dominance in the Caribbean. These aspiring superpowers are forging alliances with socialist governments in Cuba, Nicaragua and Venezuela. If these Latin dictatorships become staging grounds for Russia and China, a coalition of nations could potentially cut off U.S. access to the Panama Canal and seal off the Straits of Florida and the Yucatán Channel.
As astonishing as such an attack on America may sound, Bible prophecies in Deuteronomy, Ezekiel and Isaiah reveal it will soon happen.
