An embargoed island

For the record, the Castro regime spent a record USD437.5 million last year buying foodstuffs from US primary producers, according to new figures published by the US-Cuba Trade and Economic Council.

The council reports that the main items purchased from the US were corn, chicken, wheat, soybean products and rice.

But the purchases also included newsprint, which this Reuters report says was almost certainly used to publish the regime’s number one propaganda sheet, Granma.
