Suggestions Vladimir Putin is poised to reopen the Cuban military base have sparked fears of a new missile crisis.

Russia should reopen its military base in Cuba, in the backyard of the United States, two key supporters of the Kremlin strongman have demanded.

Such a move would massively ramp up tensions between Washington and Moscow at a time when relations are already at their worst since the Cold War.

Many will see the coordinated call by two key parliamentary allies of President Putin as a sign that a new ultra-modern Cuban presence is intended by the Kremlin.

‘Our base on Cuba, naval and aviation, should exist. It’s a key issue,’ demanded Frants Klintsevich, deputy head of the Russian senate’s defence and security committee, according to Interfax news agency.

Russia should decisively react to the placing of US missile defence systems around its borders, he claimed.

Hours later the committee’s chairman Colonel-General Viktor Bondarev – until last month commander of Russian aerospace forces – echoed the call while also demanding a reopening of the former Russian military base in Vietnam.
