Published 2019-02-13 17:30:07 by Paul Antonopoulos in Anglo-5, Eurasia, Headline-News, Latin-America, Russia, United-States, Venezuela

MOSCOW, Russia – The United States wants the Venezuelan army to “betray” President Nicolás Maduro to facilitate a change of government, Venezuelan ambassador to Russia Carlos Rafael Faria Tortosa said on Tuesday.

Russia, China, Mexico, among others, said they considered… Continue ->
