President Vladimir Putin has launched a massive military modernization program and sought to demonstrate Russia's global reach by sending navy ships to the Mediterranean, Latin America and other areas.

Russia according to Ria Novosti already has similar arrangements with Armenia, Tayikistán, Kirguizistán and Syria. Likewise in the Crimean peninsula of Ukraine, Russia has the outpost for its Black Sea fleet.

Moscow’s intention to set up a military base in Nicaragua may increase tensions between that country and its neighbor, Costa Rica.

Nicaragua’s government, and president Daniel Ortega, have friendly relations with Moscow: Russia has donated some military equipment to Nicaragua’s forces and has participated in some training exercises

If Russia installs a military base, it could upset the balance of power in the region, providing Nicaragua with a means of coercing its neighbors; Castillo already indicated that his government has little trust in Nicaragua.
