The United States in recent weeks wanted to make a coup in Venezuela. They supported opposition leader Juan Guaydo and at all international platforms began to recognize him as a legitimate president. But as a result, Washington did not achieve its goal. This situation was assessed by Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.
According to a Russian diplomat, the American leadership did not manage to provoke a military confrontation in Venezuela and to overthrow the regime of the current president, Nicolas Maduro.
“Venezuela is widely known. The blitzkrieg on regime change failed there, but the Americans are not refusing the idea of overthrowing the legitimate president of Venezuela, ”Lavrov said.
Such a sharp statement by Lavrov is fully justified. Obviously, Washington was unable to put at the helm of the country its puppet of Guaydo. But under pressure from the American elite, this politician was recognized as president in several states.
Now the States are implementing “Plan B”. The United States imposed sanctions on Caracas, and now Venezuelan oil is not bought by European companies. Americans seek financial depletion of the state in South America.
Despite the difficult situation, the President of Venezuela, Nicolas Maduro has a great chance to stay in power. Moscow helps him in resolving problems in the country.
In addition, the Russian authorities do not allow the US raider to seize our allied state and use its natural resources at its discretion.
Russia calls on the United States to adhere to the norms of international law and allow people to decide their own destiny.
