According German media Russia signed a treaty in Cuba about the re-opening of this station: [1] . Greetings, -- (talk) 07:34, 16 July 2014 (UTC)

a question that I am sure would be poised from the general readership[edit]

Does the opening of this station in tandum with the nutralization of cuba's debt, imply that the united states could be the target of these recent developments. And a followup question would be is there any evidence that Russia plans on using this station to start collection american intel once again?

Is not this obviuos? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 10:14, 30 July 2014 (UTC)

double checking the date in the article[edit]

An earlier poster wrote that "In 2004 talks on bringing back Russian activity to the site intensified", citing a Russian reference:

"З-Цюгерю - Хлечыхи Сьх Дю Бмнбэ Сякшьхр". Retrieved 2014-07-18.

I'm unable to view the Russian material on my computer, so am wondering if there's a typo in this Wiki article and it should be 2014 and not 2004. Could someone else look at that Russian language source? Thank wiki-ny-2007 (talk) 22:40, 19 July 2014 (UTC)

The source article doesn't seem to mention 2004 (although I can't read Russian). Google translating the article on Russian Wikipedia, I see:

"Since 2004, due to the deterioration of Russian-American relations, the Russian leadership considered the possibility of recovery of the Russian base in Lourdes. In early 2014, negotiations with Cuba on this issue intensified."

So I'd guess this was just a poor copy-paste. Probably safest just to remove the sentence. It doesn't add much to the article. Brycehughes (talk) 23:42, 19 July 2014 (UTC)
Yes, it was only a poor copy-paste, sorry. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 15:15, 29 July 2014 (UTC)
