Moscow, Feb 3 (Prensa Latina) Members of Cuba solidarity organizations and movements in Russia on Thursday denounced the United States blockade against the Caribbean island, on the 60th anniversary of Washington's formalization of that policy.

February 3 marks six decades since then US President John F. Kennedy signed Executive Order 3447, which instituted unilateral coercive measures against Cuba.

The imposition of the blockade exacerbated the White House’s hostility against the Cuban Revolution, which since its triumph had been facing economic coercion and the breaking off of diplomatic relations in January 1961 by the US Government.

Scholar Leonid Savin, president of the Moscow-based Fidel Castro Foundation, condemned the tightening of this US policy on Cuba in the past few years, which he described as genocidal and in violation of international law.

He told Prensa Latina that Washington maintains its double-standard on its Cuba policy by pressuring other countries to take sides against the Caribbean island, whereas it disregards the international community’s appeal to have the blockade lifted.

The editor of Geopolitica.ru urged all citizens from any country to call on the US to lift the illegal blockade and sanctions against Cuba.

For her part, Ekaterina Andreeva, a young translator for the Europa para Cuba (Europe for Cuba) YouTube channel, described the economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed by the world’s biggest power against the so-called Island of Freedom as a true crime.
