US occupied a part of Cuba

Summary of Disinformation

Part of Cuba  – the Guantanamo Bay – is occupied by the US in breach of international law.

Disproof

False.

The United States is leasing a part of Cuban territory based on the agreements signed in 1903 and 1934. The treaties acknowledge Cuba's sovereignty over the territory, while granting US jurisdiction over the property.

The disinformation message appeared as a classic case of "whataboutism", as the participants of the discussion were talking about the sanctions imposed on Russia over the violation of international borders.
