MAJOR: Moscow Confirms It Is Siding With Venezuela Against US Aggression

The Russian Foreign Ministry strongly condemned US attempts to form an alternative Venezuelan government, stifling the Latin American country with sanctions.

The commentary said on the website of the Russian ministry: “The brazen line of Washington’s unconstitutional formation of alternative structures of government in Venezuela, the attempts to ignore reality, designate Venezuelan authorities as legitimate and deny this to others, suffocating the country with sanctions, leading to a deterioration of the socioeconomic situation and reaching painfully the pockets of ordinary Venezuelans, is an undisputed offensive against Venezuela’s sovereignty”.

Recently, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo had discussed the situation in Venezuela with the Venezuelan National Assembly’s opposition leader, Juan Guaido, who until a few days ago led the country’s parliament.

In 2017, Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro convened a National Constituent Assembly, totally controlled by the government, and the National Assembly can not make political decisions.

“It is necessary to promote the search for internal harmony, uniting the efforts of the government and the opposition to reduce tensions, improve the situation of the country and rule on the principles of unity. Naturally, provided that all political forces in the country observe the Constitution and the current legislation,” the statement said.

The re-election of Nicolás Maduro on May 20 and his subsequent inauguration on Thursday has been widely criticized by neighboring countries.

The Organization of American States (OAS) and the Lima Group did not recognize the president-elect’s powers, while Paraguay broke diplomatic relations with the country.

The US also took a similar stance, increasing sanctions and pushing Caracas.

This isolation however is only pushing Caracas towards Beijing and Moscow.

“[Maduro’s government] will bet, it has been betting since last year, with the deepening of relations with China, Russia, India, Turkey, that is, returning its economy to Asia – which is becoming in recent decades, the center of the world economy – and secondarily to politics with the Americas and with Europe,” said Roberto Santana, professor of History and International Relations of UERJ.

About ron abbass

Because of my last name, there are some who might think I'm a Muslim. I'm an older student of the bible and I regard myself as Christian-other. That is, I was baptized in a Torah-keeping assembly. I'm one who tries his best to follow Yayshua, the Messiah (Christ) by keeping the commandments, the dietary laws, the weekly Sabbath and the annual Sabbaths (Holy Days) instituted and ordained by the great I AM, the Creator-God of Israel. I reject the holidays and festivals invented by the Roman church. Truth-seeking is my present passion. Presently, I do a lot of research into the World Wars, the mass media, the Holocaust, Zionism, Health Issues, 9/11 and the power brokers who are behind the New World Order that is gradually being established mainly in the Western Nations. Many prognosticators (prophets) both secular and religious are warning us that we are living "On the Eve of Destruction" - the last days. There's a very good chance a nuclear tsunami will eventually visit many nations. Peace and blessings to all who love the truth and hate the lies.
