A military helicopter supporting the visit of the regime’s ruler Miguel Díaz-Canel to Santiago de Cuba crashed to the ground in the early hours of April 11 and there were no survivors of the accident, according to Miami news network AmericaTevé.

The media also reported that the helicopter was supporting the visit of the dictator Raúl Castro to the eastern city for the burial of combatants of the Third Eastern Front, although Castro was not on the damaged aircraft.
