1. (SBU) DCM delivered reftel points regarding the Cuba embargo
resolution October 26 to MFA Second Territorial Department Director
(A/S equivalent) Ihor Hrushko. Hrushko noted that Cuba continues to
provide substantial assistance for the "Chornobyl children"
(belonging to families affected by the 1986 Chornobyl nuclear
disaster) and that Ukraine's position is to oppose the U.S. trade
embargo on Cuba. Notwithstanding, MFA had decided October 25 that
Ukraine would support the EU statement on the annual UNGA resolution
introduced by Cuba condemning the U.S. economic embargo against
Cuba. The statement, he noted, had two aspects: while it condemned
the U.S. trade embargo, it was also quite critical of the Cuban
regime's human rights violations.
