According to Avia.Pro:
“The President of Nicaragua, Daniel Ortega, signed a decree according to which the deployment of Russian military bases and deployment of cruise missiles will be allowed in the country.
This decision could become an important factor in the geopolitical balance of the region, especially given its close proximity to the United States.
The Russian news site also highlights the distance between Nicaragua and the US capital, Washington: 3000 km.
“With such proximity, missiles stationed in Nicaragua can reach the US capital in no time,” – the Russian website warns.
Daniel Ortega’s decree has not yet been made public, which makes it difficult to gather more details for a complete verification of the information regarding Nicaragua’s partnership with Russia.”
The ambassador of Nicaragua to Russia, Alba Azucena Torres Mejia, recently commented that it seemed to allude to a possible military alliance between Daniel Ortega and Vladimir Putin of the Russian Federation.

On August 13, the TASS news service published Torres Mejia’s comments regarding the two countries’ military cooperation:
“This year, we are marking the 79th anniversary of diplomatic relations. Over this time, we have proved that we will always be with Russia. We are friends with it, we love and respect this incredible country. I think that Nicaragua will try to develop relations with Russia in all spheres.”
Currently unknown is the White House’s strategy for dealing with Russia in this situation, reminiscent of the 1962 missile crisis involving communist Cuba.
