The Brazilian government led by military puppet Bolsonaro, declared in a statement that it would start deliveries of humanitarian aid to the border with Venezuela by Saturday.
According to the presidential spokesman General Otavio Rego Barros, Brazil will put humanitarian aid on Venezuelan border on February 23rd at the request of opposition leader Guaido, adding that he would be responsible for its distribution.
The aid includes food products and medicines that will be available in the Brazilian cities of Boa Vista and Pacaraima [in the state of Roraima] so that it will be taken by the government of [self-appointed] unelected president Juan Guaido.
According to the Brazilian government, the humanitarian operation would be organized in cooperation with the US authorities. However, a government’s spokesperson stressed that Brazil would take responsibility for the deployment.
President Nicolas Maduro’s government had earlier refused to take in the aid, stressing it could justify foreign interference in the country’s domestic affairs.
A political crisis escalated recently in Venezuela after opposition parliament speaker Juan Guaido declared himself interim president, disputing last year’s re-election of Maduro.
The United States, Canada and the Lima Group, were quick to recognize Guaido, were followed by a number of other countries that offered military corridors for an possible invasion through the Dutch ABC Islands and Colombia.
Russia, China, Mexico, Turkey and Uruguay, on the other hand, were among those that voiced their support for Maduro as the country’s legitimately elected president.
