MOSCOW, ($1=76.17 Russian Rubles) – Russia is thinking about its security in the current situation, but on the issue of the possible deployment of Russian military infrastructure in Cuba and Venezuela, we must not forget that we are talking about sovereign states, said Presidential Spokesman Dmitry Peskov.
