Recall the crisis in Venezuela began in January 2019. As a result of pro-American “opposition” demonstrations, dozens of people died. The United States and a number of Western countries have strengthened the economic and political pressure on the government and froze Venezuela’s accounts. Recognizing the speaker of the National Assembly, Juan Guaido, as “president”, they openly blackmailed and threatened the leadership of the Bolivarian Republic.
