Russia will write off $ 32 billion, which the Republic of Cuba owes Russia on loans granted during the Soviet period. Writing off the Cuban debt is the biggest act of financial debt settlement in the history of post-Soviet Russia. Previously, the largest write-off was with Iraq debt ($ 12 billion). The World Cup FIFA 2014 begins in Brazil today. After twelve-year break, the Russia national team will again take part in the championship. In the group stage, the team will play with South Korea, Belgium, and Algeria. Good luck! Under the agreement valued at $ 400 billion, Russia will supply China with 38 billion cubic meters of natural gas per year for 30 years. It is clear that this is a political project rather than concern about improving the welfare of the citizens of Russia. To send more money on infrastructure of the Crimea, two projects will be canceled: a bridge across the Lena River in Siberia and the cargo terminal in "Taman" port in Krasnodar krai (about 3.2 billion USD). Unfortunately, few people in the country think about the price Russia will pay for the annexation of the Crimea. Today, Russia celebrates Victory Day in the Second World War. In honor of this memorable date, military parades have been held in many cities across the country. The main parade has been held on Red Square in Moscow. More notes from Russia »
