Coup attempt: Venezuelan army makes its choice

Apparently, the events in Venezuela are not developing exactly as the organizers of the coup d'etat planned. It became known that Washington had already recalled part of its diplomatic corps from this Latin American country and urged all US citizens on its territory to “seriously think” about leaving Venezuela. It is reported by the British edition of The Guardian.




In the edition surethat such a decision was made in the United States after the Minister of Defense of Venezuela Vladimir Padrino Lopez declared that it was necessary to avoid a civil war between Venezuelans at all costs and directly accused the United States of aiding a coup in overthrowing the legitimate president of Venezuela Nicolas Maduro Moros. And this statement means that the Venezuelan Armed Forces remain loyal to official Caracas, despite many years of opposition calls to go over to their side.

Moreover, Washington initially ignored the decision of Caracas to expel American diplomats, who were given 72 hours to leave the territory of Venezuela. And now the US State Department is bustling.

By the way, the head of the Venezuelan Ministry of Defense, surrounded by other senior Venezuelan military men, in his statement touched not only the United States and the opposition. He walked qualitatively through Washington’s regional allies, including Brazil, which, for some time now, has been openly hostile to Venezuela and is trying to wreak havoc and anarchy.

Coup attempt: Venezuelan army makes its choice


It should be noted that countries such as China, Turkey, Russia, Iran, Nicaragua, Bolivia, Mexico, Cuba and a number of other countries have already supported the official authorities of Venezuela, and the EU has taken a neutral position after some hesitation. At the same time, the Armed Forces of Venezuela today are the most combat-ready in all of South America.

We remind you that U.S. President Donald Trump, on his Twitter page, approved the coup attempt in Venezuela and recognized Venezuelan president of the speaker of the National Assembly (Parliament) Juan Guaido (he appointed himself). At the same time, Russian President Vladimir Putin expressed support to the legitimate head of the Venezuelan state, i.e. Nicolas Maduro, which greatly strengthened his position.

    And let's, guys, recognize Trump as an impostor, and put in America the rightful president Vladimir Volfovich. Well, he will quickly restore order there, and our Airborne Forces will wash their boots in the waters of the Potomac.

      Do you believe more pro-Western media! I hope that the legitimate president and the army loyal to him will succeed in spreading the pro-American Maidan on asphalt and washing it off into the ocean!

        And what is wrong with pro-Western media? Okay, now hold on, and what to do next? Will there be anything better? An army can be introduced into stores, but this product will not increase and there will be only further collapse in the economy. Any other country should take Venezuela for maintenance? Tell me which? A mediocre ruler completely brought the country to a pen and seized power with his teeth, thinking only of himself and his surroundings.

    No country in the world thrives after the Americans get in with a coup. (Libya, Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Ukraine). It is obvious that they too sneeze on the people of Venezuela, the main thing for them is to remove Maduro, loyal to Russia, as well as Assad in Syria, Gaddafi in Libya, etc.
