During the activity, Cuban ambassador to Kiev Felix Leon Carballo thanked Dmitri Tabachnik, member of the Ukrainian Parliament, for being the initiator of this project, and described him as a friend of Cuba and a connoisseur of its history.
Tabachnik recalled his meetings with the historical leader of the Cuban Revolution, and said that he has never met a head of state that can speak in such depth on such a wide variety of subjects and be so accurate when citing statistical data.
He pointed out that the most varied themes of world interest, from climate change to the production of bio-fuels, including Washington's policy toward Cuba, are tackled in the 58 compiled essays, written from March 2007 to November 2008.
The website of the Cuban Foreign Ministry points out that Tabachnik, who is also vice-president of the Parliamentarian Friendship-with-Cuba Group, highlighted the fact that for almost 19 years, doctors from the archipelago have offered their services free of charge to over 22,000 Ukrainian children, the victims of the Chernobil nuclear disaster.
