Medvedev wants to bring back “privileged relations” with Latin America

From the article “Russian warships bound for Cuba in new show of strength”:

“The Russian naval command believes visits by Russian ships to Venezuela, Panama and Nicaragua signify long-term prospects for developing cooperation among these countries’ naval forces in the interest of developing stability and trust on the world’s oceans,” the navy said.

Yeah, yeah, that sound’s like the perfect way to develop stability and trust on the high seas — get a bunch of South American militaries revved up.
