¿Ya pasó todo? Nicaragua 45 años más tarde…

La Nicaragua de julio de 2024 es muy diferente a lo que comúnmente se ha visto y vivido en los últimos diez años. Es el lugar en que ha desembocado un estado policial, corrupto, oportunista y mentiroso. A 45 años no se celebra un triunfo, se revive un Déjà vu.

Ortega y Putin, la dependencia de Nicaragua en Rusia

La relación entre Nicaragua y Rusia se resume en un juego de personalidades autoritarias con ilusiones de grandeza. Daniel Ortega, un animal político primitivamente autoritario, está obsesionado con entregarse a Rusia y Vladimir Putin, como una necesidad existencial. Mientras tanto el dictador ruso acepta el cortejo del dictador criollo para alimentar su ego, su perenne lucha, anacrónica, por recobrar lo que no existe, una nación que perdió décadas atrás su silla imperial.

El consenso global, dentro y fuera del país, es que el principal objetivo de Nicaragua como nación es derrotar el proyecto de sucesión dinástica del régimen actual, para abrir el camino hacia una transición democrática. La realidad obliga a diferenciar entre la lucha por alcanzar el cambio político, y cómo gobernar democráticamente. El denominador común, sin embargo, sigue siendo el mismo, crear una coalición con capacidad de lograr el cambio, y con capacidad de gobernar democráticamente.
