Nicolas Maduro may be overthrown due to coronavirus effects


The coronavirus epidemic and its attendant problems can bring down the power of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro, writes the American magazine Time.


The weekly reminds that since 2013 economy the state collapsed by more than 65 percent. Every third Venezuelan does not have enough food to meet basic needs. And doctors in the healthcare system lack essential items such as gloves.

The collapse of the Venezuelan water supply system poses a huge threat to its ability to restrain the coronavirus, leaving people unable to wash their hands regularly, which is a key line of defense against infection.

Coming to a country in such conditions, the COVID-19 epidemic threatens to become a real disaster, which the current political the regime may not survive.

So far, support for the Venezuelan armed forces is crucial to keep Maduro in office even in the wake of the collapse of the country, as senior officials benefit from corruption schemes of his presidency. But the situation is changing rapidly and, perhaps, the current leader risks losing the support of the military, especially if Russia and China, the main international patrons, refuse it.

    Found a reason. There, even without the virus, mediocre authorities launched the country around the world.

        There is no need at all and was not necessary. There is still a fiery fighter for the freedom of the South American continent and a diligent student and follower of Bolivar and Che Guevara Chavez deceived. While there were opportunities, and with his populism and insane domestic and foreign policies, he still didn’t spoil everything; for some reason, the regime held on. But with Maduro it’s a complete disaster and, in principle, it cannot be otherwise ...
  2. If Maduro is thrown off, Doodles will come, then the V-Elts will know what is really bad!

    The hegemonic protégé, Guano, would have fixed things for a long time.

    So, in Italy, the water supply is destroyed?

    Yes, even let them eat it, God forgive me, Maduro instead of medicine. There are no direct concerns, how to worry about him and about what they have there. Russia is not the USSR in order to contain all kinds of people for the ideas of communism. No, well, they stayed, of course, with a pension, which in decent societies is not voiced aloud, they are ready, sitting in glasses in front of the TV and slippers, to clatter and worry about this Maduro. laughing

      By the end of the term, it became clear that Maduro is Venezuela. No Maduro - no Venezuela. In general, if not Maduro, then who? !!! The second term has gone, it seems like a third ...

        There can be only one suggestion: Maduro and his company publicly obey the people of Venezuela, give the loot from their country (it’s good to do this to Chávez’s relatives) over the years and voluntarily and peacefully resign, proposing to appoint new ones, this time honest and democratic elections. In the future, to the best of their ability and ability, to help Venezuela, with all possible effort, correct its own mistakes.

    The main pressure on Washington’s disagreeable “regimes” comes through oil revenues. Venezuela in this regard will fall catastrophically and the cove here will simply stand next to it. 40-45% of the extracted oil is bought up by the USA. The United States stops buying oil - Maduro is to blame for some reason ... I can’t argue that their version of “socialism” has slipped into an analogue of the Soviet party elite and simply profiled their chance because of their greed.

    Guaido will come - he will restore order.

    - from the same series as healing through shamanistic rituals on TV.

      - And who is to blame, should the US look for other markets for him? And another very interesting question, why, as you write, “disagreeable Washington regimes”, as a rule, are not able to do anything except selling petroleum products?

        And why did you and the United States decide that in the market of countries with a resource economy something should be industrial-oriented? Whoever has it is the one who trades this. Why should the Wall Street speculators control the balance of resource-money-commodity? Has someone delegated to them? I do not even require an answer, because the questions are rhetorical.

          But the industry-oriented are not required to buy anything from them. And so, let them trade as they want, no one limits them.

        US stops buying oil

        In fact, your deity does not stop buying oil, but imposes an embargo on Venezuela. Agree, these are several different things. Although for dancing, this is perhaps the invisible hand of the market.

          In fact, no one introduced an oil embargo.

            US President Donald Trump on Monday evening, August 5, signed a decree imposing a complete economic embargo against this country. Exceptions are made for operations related to the provision of humanitarian assistance.

              But other countries may trade with Venezuela. They forbade everyone to trade with Iran.

                    How do you live with liberalism in your head?
                    The full economic embargo implies the seizure of accounts.

                      You should at least read the articles on the same Reporter.

                      They ruined their economy without any sanctions under Chavez.
                      And how do you manage to live with a TV in your head?

    It is useless to think such are not accustomed. What the elder says, they sing.
