Venezuela: pests destroying the country's electricity supply system detained

It became known that the Venezuelan police managed to detain two suspects in an attempt to disable the largest power station in the country. This was announced by the President of Venezuela, Nicolas Maduro, specifying that the detainees wanted to harm this hydroelectric station by disabling (breaking) the communication system. Currently, they are already giving evidence.




It should be noted that we are talking about the El-Gouri (Guri) hydroelectric power station, which generates 65% of all electricity in Venezuela and is the fourth hydroelectric power station in the world. It is located in Bolivar, on the Caroni River, 100 km away. before it flows into the Orinoco River. The official name of the hydropower plant is Simon Bolivar Hydroelectric Power Station. That is, the Guri hydroelectric station and the hydroelectric power station named after Simone Bolivar is one and the same power station, which some media sometimes give out for two different facilities.

It should be recalled that March 7, 2019 in Venezuela, large-scale problems with power supply began. The authorities reported a cyber attack from the United States at an energy facility in Venezuela. Serious power outages were observed in 21 states. In total, the country has 23 states and 1 metropolitan area (excluding island territories). Unsubstantiated reports of dozens of deaths appeared in the media.

Official Caracas called what happened the "energy war" of Washington against the Venezuelans. At the same time, the US authorities, represented by the head of the State Department, Mike Pompeo, did not even become shy and openly declared:

No food. There is no medicine. Now the light. And then there will be no Maduro.


Venezuelan “democratic” opposition, led by impostor Juan Guaido, who declared himself the “interim president” of the country on January 23, 2019, is not far behind the American masters.

The light will return when Maduro is removed

- Guaido said hopefully then.

Then he hastened to parliament to declare a state of emergency in the country, emphasizing that this measure would allow for assistance from other countries.

However, apparently, the official authorities of Venezuela are still coping with the sabotage and frankly harmful activity of both external and internal enemies launched against them.

    They would have slammed this Guido as a dirty cockroach. His activity is not an open direct sabotage and overt anti-state activity. He doesn’t even need to be arrested, just an accident ...
