During the event in Moscow, Pérez said that for the White House Cuba´s existence and example questions its hegemony in the Americas and around the globe. ‘Even though Cuba is not a military threat to the United States´ national security, it´s a political and ideological challenge,’ he warned.
Pérez enlightened that for overthrowing the Cuban government, different US administrations had been implementing a military, security, political, economic, ideological and informational infrastructure.
The Cuban academic recalled the attempts to overthrow the Cuban Revolution during the Bay of Pigs Invasion, nuclear threat since the Missile Crisis, crackdown on armed groups and gangs, internal subversion and the international isolation.
Plus, he pointed out that a key point of such a strategy has been the economic, commercial and financial blockade that only in 2020 cost about US$9 billion. The Cuban political scientist warned that by not achieving their objectives, US authorities added to their strategy ‘the unconventional warfare recipes,’ he stressed.
‘Many of its (USA) methods have already been used against Cuba in the past and also recently in Ukraine, Belarus, Venezuela, Russia itself, Libya, Yugoslavia, among others.’
Pérez stated that in the unconventional war on Cuba, the media hype and internet have been pivotal to generate distrust in the country’s authorities, actions of civil disobedience and domestic instability.
