Soldiers watch as Russian destroyer Admiral Chabanenko sails into Havana’s bay

Soldiers watch as Russian destroyer Admiral Chabanenko sails into Havana’s bay December 19, 2008. The Russian warship arrived on Friday for the first time since the 1991 collapse of the Soviet Union, as Russia flexed its muscles close to the United States and showed off its warming relations with former Cold War ally Cuba.
