Putin’s interest in the RD is shallow. It is done more to annoy the USA on its doorstep.

False, before the war Russia was the 3rd largest emitter of tourist to RD. Airlines had direct flights to 4 different russian cities, and DR was exporting fruits to the russian market. DR also imported steel and fertilizers from Russia, it is stimated that DR lost 400 millon dollars in revenue due to the war.
Russia was rapidly becoming an importan market and economic partner for DR. Russia eliminated the visa requirement for dominicans to travel to russia improving the dominican passport standing.

At least the DR needs some diversification when it comes to tourism. Americans are the largest for tourism, and still is, but more people can be fine.
