Raul Castro met the author, Nikolai S. Leonov, in 1953 on board ship in the Mediterranean.  Castro was on his way home from a meeting in Bucharest and Leonov was taking up a junior post at the Soviet embassy in Mexico.  He was also pursuing advanced studies in Spanish at the Autonomous University.


In 2003 Leonov was elected to the Duma as a member of Rodina which Wikipedia describes as a coalition of 30 nationalist and far-right groups
