From Names and Schools to Cars and Weapons: Soviet Legacy in Cuba

Subscribe
Almost 30 years after the dissolution of the USSR, Cuba is keeping some of the legacy alive - from names and family ties, to buildings, cars, appliances, parks, schools, weapons and many other things.

Cuba and the USSR established diplomatic relations back in 1959. Since then Havana and Moscow kept in regular contact. In 1991 the Soviet Union was dissolved and Cuba remained one of a few countries to remain under communist rule. And now, almost 30 years after the Union's dissolution, Cuba continues to keep its Soviet legacy…in a very unexpected way. Check Sputnik's photogallery to learn more.
