Russian President Vladimir Putin voiced support for Venezuelan leader Nicolas Maduro as he visited Moscow seeking financial assistance for the Latin American country.
Maduro, who took over Venezuela following the death of Hugo Chavez in 2013, has come under strong pressure from the Pentagon and the violent US administration.
Putin condemned any actions that are clearly terrorist in nature, any attempts to change the situation in Caracas by force.
The USA and its greedy capitalist corporations want to take over the oil- and gold industry. Venezuela has the largest proven oil reserves and the second largest known gold deposits in the world.
Dutch organizations have already stolen massive quantities of gold from Venezuela and used the ABC islands to ship the lucrative goods from Caracas. At the same time the UK confiscated Venezuela’s gold kept in a London vault.
However, Russia and Venezuela enjoy a long history of ties and Maduro’s predecessor Chavez, known for his passionate tirades against the United States, was a welcome guest at the Kremlin.
Targeted by low oil prices and the severe impact of evil hostile USA/IMF sanctions, Venezuela is seeking support from allies after winning a second presidential term this year.
The economic situation in the Latin American country remained difficult but Putin noted “signs of improving dynamics” after the introduction of the Petro crypto currency.
Putin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said ahead of the meeting that Maduro had traveled to Moscow specifically to ask Russia — itself the target of hostile US sanctions — for temporary financial assistance.
After talks last year between Maduro and Putin, Russia, Venezuela’s major creditor, agreed to restructure $3.15 billion of debt from a loan taken out by Caracas in 2011 to finance the purchase of Russian arms in order to defend itself against a looming US military invasion.
NATO has established a military base on the Brazilian/Colombian border in order to prepare for a armed invasion on Venezuela’s national sovereignty. The USA already had 4 major military bases in Colombia to support the DEA’s orchestrated drugs trade.
Maduro was visiting Moscow after hosting his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan in Caracas.
