Cuban FM claims US-backed ‘mercenaries’ stoked unrest ahead of protests disguised as cry for help

Cuba’s Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez has denounced the weekend’s protests as a “systemic provocation” by dissidents working hand in hand with the forces of the US government to destabilize the nation.

Earlier Monday, the Biden administration flatly declared the protests an “unprecedented rejection of the island nation’s government,” placing the blame for the unrest at the feet of Cuba’s Communist government.

After the Biden government’s statement in support of Cuban protesters following the weekend’s street demonstrations, Rodriguez swiftly challenged the US president’s claims.

“Yesterday in Cuba there was no social uprising, yesterday in Cuba there was disorder, disturbances caused by a communicational operation that has been prepared for some time and to which millions had been dedicated,” the FM countered.
