Russia Seeks Access to Bases in Eight Countries for Its Ships and Bombers


Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said Wednesday the military was engaged in talks with Cuba, Venezuela, Nicaragua, Algeria, Cyprus, the Seychelles, Vietnam and Singapore.

“We need bases for refueling near the equator, and in other places,” ITAR-Tass quoted him as saying.

Russia is not looking to establish bases in those locations, but to reach agreement to use facilities there when required.

 Why negotiate? Just use the USA strategy; pretend Ukraine has weapons of mass destruction and go for it!

Wow!  A whole 8 countries?  Compare that to the thousandths of bases the USan Empire has around the world in some 152 countries and you'll see how this is nothing more than the kettle calling the pot black and more cries of wolf from the Exceptional People(tm).
