The connection between the Soviet Union and Cuba can be traced back as far as the establishment of the Cuban Communist Party, PCC (Partido Comunista de Cuba) in 1925. In 1961 this party merged with Castro’s revolutionary movement, but until 1965 Castro, with his highly individualistic regime, did not really cater for the Communist Party in his government. Castro was also often subject to serious Russian criticism on his foreign policies, while the opposite was also true: he often criticised the Soviet Union. (C.F. Nieuwoudt, “Kuba in Africa”, Bulletin of the African Institute, No. 2, 1978, p. 44)
