The official, speaking to Prensa Latina, said that there is great potential for local cooperation with the Caribbean nation, since relations between Russia and Cuba have a good tradition that dates back decades and dates back to the time of the Soviet Union.

This relationship has not only been tested over time, but is also latent in the traditions of friendship between the people of both nations.

Kujaruk pointed out that the areas of collaboration include education, public health, mining, the development of scientific activity in biomedicine, transportation, petroleum derivatives and sports, without forgetting cutting-edge technologies.

The governor said that the Khanty-Mansiisk Autonomous Region can also cooperate with Cuba on educational information technology platforms, as it plans to do with other states such as Vietnam and Iran.

The two sides can cooperate to develop medical information technology platforms to help treat diseases, or use artificial intelligence to help relevant agencies detect deforestation activities or forest fires at an early stage, the politician said.

According to the acting governor, another area of ​​cooperation could be tourism, because Cuba has been a traditional and popular destination for Russian tourists for many years.

The Khanty-Mansiisk Autonomous Oblast is the main oil area of ​​the Russian Federation and one of the largest crude oil producing areas in the world, with production representing approximately five percent of the total world production of the hydrocarbon (216.1 millions of tons).

Khanty-Mansiisk ranks third in the list of socio-economic regions of the Russian Federation, as well as second in terms of economic size in Russia (only behind the capital Moscow).

Since 2008, the International Information Technology Forum ITForum has been held annually in the city of Khanty-Mansiisk. More than three thousand people from 47 countries and 61 regions of Russia participated in this year’s edition.
