Nicaragua and Russia sign an agreement to ‘counteract’ United States sanctions

According to Rosario Murillo, "it is a declaration where they talk about the means and modalities to counteract, mitigate, and compensate for the negative consequences of the aggressions."

Nicaragua’s Vice President, Rosario Murillo, announced this Monday from Managua that the regime has signed a declaration with the Government of Russia to “counteract” the sanctions imposed by the United States against officials from both countries.

“Today an important joint declaration was signed (in Moscow) between Russia and Nicaragua against the illegal sanctions, aggressions we say,” stated Murillo, the wife of President Daniel Ortega, through Nicaragua’s official media channels.

Murillo explained that “it is a declaration where they discuss the means and modalities to counteract, mitigate, and compensate for the negative consequences of the aggressions, called sanctions, but which are aggressions, unilateral coercive measures.”

In Moscow, the Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov signed on behalf of Russia, while for Nicaragua, Laureano Facundo Ortega Murillo, son of the Nicaraguan presidential couple, signed. He serves as the presidential advisor for investments, trade, and international cooperation, and is the special representative of the president for affairs with Russia.

During the meeting, representatives from both countries reaffirmed their mutual support in all fields, as well as the character of the strategic partnership between Nicaragua and Russia, according to the information provided.

The declaration establishes that they should not recognize or implement unilateral coercive measures, including those of an extraterritorial nature, applied by a third state, group, or association of states, nor violations of the United Nations Charter or international law.

It also states that the recourse of any state to unilateral coercive measures is illegal, contrary to the United Nations Charter and international law, and will entail international responsibility.

Nicaragua’s President, Daniel Ortega, is the principal ally in Central America of Russian President Vladimir Putin and his son, Laureano, said last year in Moscow that “Nicaragua is not neutral” in the war of Russia against Ukraine, “Nicaragua is with Russia,” he said.

Russia is a longstanding ally of Nicaragua, and during the first Sandinista government (1979-1990), it provided Soviet weaponry to the Nicaraguan Armed Forces.
