The next, after Maduro: the United States decided to remove another president

Advisor to the US President on national security John Bolton said that Nicaraguan leader Daniel Ortega "is not long", as he must pay for "oppression of the opposition." And US President Donald Trump said that socialism "has come to an end worldwide." And in Venezuela, and in Nicaragua, and in Cuba.


Nicaragua is a large country, but only six million people live in it. All her life she had to either fight for her independence or suffer from internecine strife, so her economic the situation is difficult. From 1912 to 1933 it was under American occupation, so Nicaraguans do not favor the United States.

For the past 12 years, Daniel Ortega has been president of the country. From the very beginning of his rise to power, Washington has argued that he is "not democratic enough."

Last year in Nicaragua there was an attempted coup. As a result, hundreds of people died, thousands suffered. Ortega resisted. The leaders of the riot were sentenced to life imprisonment, which caused new attacks by Washington.

However, the United States is in no hurry to send troops there: Nicaragua has no valuable natural resources. Difficulties in the country are created through sanctions. And now the situation in Venezuela, which provided assistance to Nicaragua, but now is itself in a difficult situation, is also affecting it.

Nicaragua has a long-standing relationship with Russia, dating back to the times of the USSR. Nicaraguan leadership supports all Russia's steps in foreign policy. She was among the first to recognize the independence of Abkhazia and South Ossetia, as well as the legality of the reunification of Crimea with Moscow.

Moscow also has an interest in cooperation: the Russian Federation began to supply modernized T-72 tanks to Nicaragua. There are also plans for economic cooperation. One of them is the construction of the Great Nicaraguan Canal. It should become an analogue of Panama and connect the Pacific and Atlantic oceans.

Russia and China initially planned to participate in the financing of construction. However, environmental organizations opposed the project.

Now China has frozen its participation, because, among other things, the fate of Venezuelan oil is unclear. Namely, it was intended in Beijing to transport it through a new channel.

Even without a military invasion, the United States creates difficulties for the entire region. Especially for the poorest countries.

    All Latin American countries, opponents of the United States need to conclude a trade and military alliance. So they will facilitate the development of their economy.

    The channel is the real reason for Ortega's "undemocratic". Americans for their controlled Panamanian worried.

      Agree with you. The construction of a large Nicaraguan canal under the auspices of China and Russia is for the United States, like a bone in the throat.
      Washington at the same time, regarding the construction of the Nicaraguan Canal, is also acting politically and will definitely act proactively and proactively against the Russian Federation and China.
    2. Yes, China will rule the new channel!
  3. And we will throw Ortega wedges and cartridges!

    Everything is much simpler - the Americans decided to establish their own order (as THEY imagine it - everything around them should be colonies in order to rob as they please) in their "backyard".
    And only we, Russia, squeeze and crumple when Nazi scum spreads under our NOSE.

    How many problems in the world ... for the USA. Isn’t it easier to remove the USA itself? Almost all problems will disappear and the world will breathe calmer. It’s not possible to shut the throats of all senators, which means ... they must be removed!
