According to experts, Cuba receives about 115 thousand barrels of oil daily from Venezuela daily. This amount is enough to provide the population of the island with the necessary energy. However, despite this, the government does not have enough funds for the normal power supply of Cuba. The Cuban government has already turned to state energy companies with an order to save energy to close secondary production. This should help avoid constant interruptions in electricity, which began immediately after the collapse of the Soviet Union. The recently published memorandum of the Cuban Council of Ministers states that the situation in the electric power industry is a critical. If you do not take the necessary measures urgently, the fan shutdown of energy will affect the population and the population. State officials were forbidden to use air conditioners and refrigerators, of course, if medicines and products are not stored in the latter. Similar innovations are very acting on the nerves to the local population, which these days are experiencing worst times in the entire post -Soviet era. Fidel Castro called everything that was happening “a special period”. After the collapse of the Soviet Union, public transport remained only in the memoirs of Cubans, and electricity in the summer is turned off for 12 hours a day. To date, energy resources supply Venezuela to the island. Between Chavez and Castro, close trade and political relations were established. Hugo Chavez invested several billion in the reconstruction of oil refineries in Cuba. In this regard, a logical question arises – where does the lack of electricity come from if a large volume of oil is imported from Venezuela, and another 50 thousand barrels are extracted directly on the island?
