In this regard, Fuentes Acosta commented on the struggles for Cuba’s independence in the 19th and 20th centuries and made particular reference to the stage initiated by the historic leader of the Cuban Revolution, Fidel Castro, in 1953, the report stated.
After denouncing the campaigns orchestrated from US territory to discredit the achievements of the Cuban Revolution, the diplomat told radio listeners about 243 coercive measures implemented by the Government of former President Donald Trump to reinforce the genocidal US policy.
He also explained that 50 of those provisions, still in force, were approved amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

Fuentes Acosta also referred to the epidemiological situation in Cuba, including the efforts done by the Cuban Government and people to control the incidence of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, which causes Covid-19.
