Relations in War

Acting as allies, Cuba and the Soviet Union greatly depended on each other in the Cold War, by providing militaristic support and replenishments of rations or other materials. The U.S. relationship is far more complex, as they desire to build a strong affiliation, yet they have strong opposition to Fidel Castro. During the war, Cuba's leader created "political and economic acrimony" to further separate the two countries, leaving a grudge today.
