Reuters reveals U.S. to 'squeeze' Cuba, scrutinize Russia over Venezuela support

Reuters reported exclusively that the Trump administration is preparing new sanctions on Cuba over its support for Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro and is taking a “closer look” at Russia’s role in helping him remain in power. The new sanctions under consideration for communist Cuba, expected “in the weeks ahead,” would likely target the island’s tourism sector as well as Venezuela’s cut-rate oil delivered to Havana, building on the U.S. blacklisting of tankers used to transport the supplies.
