Russian undergarments in a twist regarding sanctions for supporting Chavista regime

A Russian senator accuses the US of threatening sanctions against those who support Venezuela

March 6, 2019 - After the failure of the attempts to overthrow Nicolás Maduro's government, the United States threatens the members of Caracas with sanctions, Russian Senator Igor Morozov told Sputnik.

"The blitzkrieg failed, Nicolás Maduro did not flee, the Army is loyal to the oath and the majority of the population does not see the US protege as president," the senator said.

So the US now goes on to practice a policy of "scorched earth."

"That is to say, to burn everything that can help in some way to preserve the constitutional order in Venezuela, among other tactics, to exert the pressure of sanctions against those who do not support the open aggression of the United States against this country," he said.

The US special representative for Venezuela, Elliott Abrams, stated previously that Washington does not rule out sanctions against third countries for doing business with the Venezuelan authorities.

The US Administration's national security adviser, John Bolton, promised to increase economic pressure on Cuba for its "role in Venezuela," especially targeting its military and intelligence services.

Venezuela is going through a political crisis that worsened on January 23, after opposition leader Juan Guaidó proclaimed himself "president in charge" of the country.

The Venezuelan head of state, Nicolás Maduro, who assumed the second term on January 10, described Guaidó's statement as an attempted coup and blamed the US for having orchestrated it.

Guaidó was recognized by the United States, most of the member countries of the Lima Group and several other countries in the Americas, as well as by a large number of the member states of the European Union (EU).

Russia, as well as Bolivia, China, Cuba, Iran, Turkey and other countries, reaffirmed their support for the Venezuelan Government.

So far, the United States has only imposed direct sanctions against Venezuelan leaders and companies.


Translation: Russian companies are going to kill their golden goose if they try to seize a golden egg by doing business with Venezuela. And compared to the commerce that Russian companies do with US, Venezuela is chump change. But not to the power brokers at the Kremlin. They are in for BILLIONS of dollars and risk not seeing a worthless Bolivar if Maduro's despotic regime crumbles.

1. Perhaps Trump telegraphed Putin with the good news?

The government of the United States will sanction the foreign entities that help finance Nicolás Maduro.

"The United States warns foreign financial institutions that they will face sanctions for participating in the facilitation of illegitimate transactions that benefit Nicolás Maduro and its corrupt network," John Bolton, Donald Trump's government security adviser, said in a statement.

Information in development.


End of the road, Nicky
