Abstract

Since Raúl Castro has become the President of Cuba relations between Moscow and Havana have displayed a number of connotations with the halcyon days of Soviet-Cuban relations, which has included Raúl Castro and Dmitry Medvedev travelling to Russia and Cuba twice, respectively and Vladimir Putin visiting the Cuban capital in July 2014. As a result of these events this article will examine the relationship to conclude both whether the bilateral relationship has ‘gone back to the future’ since August 2006, and also if a ‘Raúl’ doctrine’ similar to the “Putin doctrine,” which has been vital for the relationship, has emerged within Cuban foreign policy.
