“The role and significance of Fidel Castro in the modern history of Cuba is, indeed, hard to overestimate. This is bereavement for the people of Cuba who sincerely loved and respected him. Remaining faithful to his ideologies and principles until the end and preserving the brave and noble qualities, Fidel Castro will continue inspiring and guiding the new generations of Cubans”, read a part of the letter, according to the press office of the President of Armenia.

Fidel Castro was a revolutionary who governed the Republic of Cuba for 47 years as Prime Minister from 1959 to 1976 and then as President from 1976 to 2006 (de jure until 2008). Politically a Marxist–Leninist and Cuban nationalist, he also served as the First Secretary of the Communist Party of Cuba from 1961 until 2011. Under his administration, Cuba became a one-party socialist state; industry and business were nationalized, and state socialist reforms were implemented throughout society.

Cuban state television announced that Castro had died on the night of Nov. 25. The cause of death was not immediately disclosed. His brother, President Raúl Castro, confirmed the news in a brief speech. Castro was cremated the following day, on Nov. 26.

  1. Everyone must remember where this letter is coming from. Sarkisian has just cemented his place as Armenia’s Dictator-For-Life, like Castro. And he ain’t ever letting go (voluntarily).

    Sarkisian just last week walked into the position of head of the Republican Party in a public scene where he received a support vote of 100%, reminiscent of yesteryear’s soviet communist party dictator vote and today’s North Korea communist dictator vote. Every hand with a white card of approval went up! He will control the levers and direction of government as long as the Republican Party controls Parliament. How long will that be? Forever! The Republican Party has many monopolies, but their most valuable monopoly is the one they grasp to conduct fraudulent elections. It’s the only way they retain power. Sarkisian knows that as soon as he loses power, he will be jailed, or worse, so this is a matter of life and death for him and other criminals who’ve hijacked the Armenian government.

    A possible solution that concerned diasporans can partake in this coming spring, is to take a “Transparency Tour” to Armenia and be trained and become a government-certified election observer. Details are here:

  2. Castro was a tyrant Sarkisian , like you are.

  3. Fidel Castro was one of the greatest military/politicla figures of modern times. Like all nations around the world, Cuba is a less than perfect country, but Cuba has done much better than every single Central and South American nation – despite being under constant attack by the North American behemoth. Viva Fidel!
