You have to look at the new [Nicaragua-Russia] alliance as a warning,” Ruíz said. “Russia is looking to deploy its technological and military capabilities to this region, and it is finding allies in Latin America that can enable it to do this.”

Mass indoctrination

Russian technology and strategies may also help the regime to drive Nicaragua’s independent media out of cyberspace, so that the population only knows the regime’s version in a kind of mass indoctrination, reported Nicaraguan independent newspaper La Mesa Redonda.

Since late 2020, Nicaragua has seen an increase in complaints of aggressions using digital media and attempts to sabotage and wipe out social network accounts and independent web platforms, reported Nicaragua’s independent digital daily Fuentes Confiables.

Although Nicaragua has a cybersecurity law, the legislation criminalizes those who criticize the Ortega-Murillo regime on social networks or question its authority, threatening with jailtime those media outlets that according to the regime broadcast “fake news,” reported Nicaragua’s independent media outlet Divergentes.

“This is a political issue,” Ruíz said. “With Nicaragua, Russia seeks to advance to countries like El Salvador or Guatemala, because of their proximity to the United States, to be checking the United States from closer countries.”



Russia and Nicaragua have signed an agreement on cooperation in the field of cybersecurity (2022-2026), La Gaceta reported. The agreement was signed in Managua following cybersecurity meetings.

The main content of this cooperation should be the protection of the national sovereignty of each of the participating parties. Russia is ready to cooperate in the fight against growing threats in cyberspace, said Deputy Secretary of the Security Council of the Russian Federation Oleg Khramov.

“Russia is focused on cooperation with all countries that want to share this issue in order to ensure the security of using information technologies on a universal basis. Nicaragua is our closest ally in this area,” commented the deputy secretary of the Russian Security Council.

Minister of Foreign Affairs of Nicaragua Denis Moncada stressed that this important meeting and signing testifies to the strengthening of relations between countries, as well as solidarity and friendship.

“Russia is seeking to deploy its technological and military potential in this region and is finding allies in Latin America that can allow it to do so,” said Victor Ruiz, founder of the SILIKN cybersecurity center in Mexico.

According to an authoritative source, representatives of the Russian ChRK are already helping to ensure and maintain the national sovereignty of some Latin American countries, including consulting on cybersecurity issues.
