Army General Raúl Castro Ruz, President of the Councils of State and of Ministers, welcomed Thursday His Excellency Leonid Kuchma, former Ukrainian President and special envoy of current President Victor Yanukovych to the celebrations to mark the twentieth anniversary of the program of medical care to children affected by the Chernobyl nuclear disaster.

The cordial exchange served as suitable framework to discuss the state of bilateral relations between the two countries and their future potential, as well as some of the challenges currently facing both countries and mankind at large, particularly the situation in Haiti, the adverse effects of the great damage inflicted to the environment and climate change, as well as the urgent need to face such serious problems in a responsible manner.

Mr. Kuchma presented the Order of Merit, First Class, awarded to Comrade Fidel by the Ukrainian President, and decorated the Cuban President with the Order Yaroslav the Wise, also First Class, in both cases for the care provided to the victims of the terrible accident of 26 April 1986. Raúl expressed his gratitude for the high-level recognition on behalf of the Head of the Revolution and on his own behalf.

The meeting was also attended by Cuban Public Health Minister José Ramón Balaguer Cabrera, Foreign Minister Bruno Rodríguez Parrilla, Foreign First Deputy Minister Marcelino Medina González, and on the Ukrainian side by the former president’s wife Lyudmila Kuchma, Ukrainian ambassador to Havana Tatiana Sayenko, First Public Health Deputy Minister Vasili Lazoryshynets, and Olexander F. Bozhko, President of the Chernobyl International Fund.
