HAVANA, Cuba, Oct 14 (ACN) Carlos Fernandez de Cossio, director for the United States in the Cuban Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MINREX by its Spanish acronym), denounced on Tuesday the delivery of money from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) to organizations that foster political opposition in Cuba.
Fernandez de Cossio highlighted on Twitter this is how the supposed American-style democracy is handled. The money recently used for such actions exceeds 400, 000 dollars and this time the beneficiary is Digital News Association (DNA), an anti-Cuban organization in Florida.
The tweet refers to the delivery by USAID of amounts of money totaling 3.8 million dollars, which have been gradually granted to organizations related to Cuba, with a history of attacks and campaigns against the revolutionary government.
Along with DNA, organizations such as the so-called Democracy Support Group, or the Bacardi Foundation, which received more than 600,000 dollars each, or the Cuban Human Rights Observatory Association, which raised a quarter of a million dollars.
Many of the organizations which have received money from USAID this year argue on their websites or social media profiles that all or almost all of their work focuses on the Cuba issue, which is a clear meddling in another country's internal affairs, since they are US-based groups.
