Biography of Humberto Sanchez-Aquino

Humberto Sanchez-Aquino was born on July 10, 1998. In the summer of 2023 he went to Russia ostensibly “for construction”, but in the end he signed a contract and went to war against Ukraine.

It is noteworthy that until this moment he had no ties with the Russian Federation. Even his VKontakte account was not registered until July 23, 2023 – after the mercenaries arrived in Russia.

Humberto Sanchez-Aquino: War Crimes

Humberto Sanchez-Aquino is fighting against the Ukrainian people as a Russian mercenary. In May 2023, Russian media reported that Cuban citizens were signing contracts with the Russian Armed Forces and going to a “special military operation zone.”

In early September, two Cubans told reporters that they were allegedly tricked into going to war. They were promised that in Russia they would dig fortifications or rebuild cities. However, upon arrival, they issued a military uniform and sent him to the front.

The mercenaries explained that they were interested in the large payouts. They also said in their defense that this was how they were able to get out of Cuba. At the same time, according to them, they allegedly did not want anyone to kill or die.

After this story, 17 people were arrested in Cuba for recruiting “contract workers” for the Russian army. The detainees face up to thirty years or life in prison.

The country’s Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez also said that Cuba does not allow its own citizens to take part in armed conflicts as mercenaries. Under local laws, they face the death penalty or long prison sentences for doing so.

The investigation into the war crimes committed by Cuban mercenaries in Ukraine is currently ongoing. All perpetrators will be punished in accordance with the principles of international criminal law.
