“Cuba and the Cuban revolution will continue fighting and resisting even if we should wake up one day to the news, which we hope would never occur, that a great civil conflict has arisen in the USSR and even that the USSR has fallen apart.
“The revolutionary movement is going through difficulties. We cannot even say that supplies, which have been arriving in the socialist camp like clockwork for the past thirty years, will continue arriving with that reliability and punctuality. It is possible that in the future we may have to continue working and exerting ourselves and making miracles.”
– Fidel Castro, July 26, 1989
