US intelligence services attack Cuba’s finances

Havana, Mar 7 (Prensa Latina) Recently leaked information confirms that the intelligence services of the United States are carrying out an operation against Cuba's finances, digital media reported on Thursday.

The US intelligence community has launched a series of maneuvers to induce inflation within the Cuban market, following four stages: shortages, induced inflation, supply boycott and financial blockade, the publication Razones de Cuba reported.

In the first stage, the intelligence services sought to limit the entry of foreign currency, mainly dollars, in Cuba, as much as possible, according to the report.

The second phase consists of using platforms financed by the US Government, such as El Toque, to stimulate inflation.

The antecedents of this phenomenon are found in similar procedures carried out by the US Government in Nicaragua, Zimbabwe, Argentina (Dólar BLUE via Telegram) and Venezuela (Dólar TODAY via web), the report explains.

According to the analysis, the common denominator is the use of digital social networks such as Facebook, WhatsApp and Telegram, where anonymous individuals set a price for freely convertible currencies, in a closed circle, which is very difficult to access.

The main objective of the actions by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) ‘is to manipulate the prices of products and finally to subvert order in Cuba.’

The third and fourth stages of the operation, the boycott on supplies and the financial blockade, follow the pattern of harassment against institutions that could establish commercial links with Cuba, the article denounces.
