Russian Prime Minister: Moscow will find ways to help Cuba get oil

Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said on the Russia 1 TV channel that Russia would find ways to help Cuba to get oil.

The TV presenter asked whether Russian warships would escort tankers that deliver oil to Cuba.

"I think we will find other ways to help Cuba get oil and oil products... Today, by the way, we talked about it and agreed that we will create a work plan for the energy supply to Cuba, including traditional energy sources, hydrocarbons, and some other opportunities that exist," said Medvedev, as reports Radio Liberty.

On September 11, Cuban officials declared that Cuba had not received enough petrol and diesel because of sanctions imposed by the US for supporting Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro.
