Here's an article outlining some of the current Cuba-Venezuela issues.
Newsweek Aug 2, 2017


Quote:
Cuba is not a just an ally of Venezuela, Cuba is the puppet master of the Maduro regime. Since the days of Hugo Chávez, the Cubans have been closely advising the Venezuelan government on how to dismantle democratic institutions.

Cuban agents control many agencies within the Venezuelan government and are deeply ingrained in the armed forces. In exchange, Cubans get cheap Venezuelan oil, a subsidy that at some point amounted to 20 percent of the island’s GDP. Cuba has made it clear in recent weeks that it won’t allow its colony to slip from its control.
