Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev kicked off an official two-day visit to Cuba on Thursday in a strong show of Russia’s support for the communist-run island as it faces escalating pressure from the United States and resulting fuel shortages.

Medvedev laid a wreath of flowers at the memorial to independence hero Jose Marti on Havana’s Revolution Square before meeting with Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel and starting official talks. He was due to make a statement to the media later on Thursday.
