In spite of reports that a ‘deal’ had been worked out between U.S. President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin regarding Venezuela’s future, and the recent departure of Russian ‘advisors’ from Caracas, Russia today declared it will continue to help develop the armed forces of the dictator Nicolas Maduro.
“We will continue our multifaceted efforts on developing partner relations with brotherly Venezuela. We will continue to implement projects in various areas, to hold events within the existing agreements that would strengthen the military potential of this country’s armed forces…Reports concerning Russia’s military presence in Venezuela have been debunked many times. I would like to stress once again that this concerns maintenance of equipment delivered there,” declared Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov, reported Russian state news agency TASS.
Juan Guaido, the opposition leader and de facto interim president, has struggled to force Maduro from power. A recent civil uprising failed in that regard.
Most European Union member states recognized Guaido as Venezuela’s interim president. Russia, Belarus, Bolivia, Iran, China, Cuba, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Syria and Turkey voiced support for Maduro, added TASS.
The White House has pushed for Maduro to be removed after Russia flew long range bombers to the region and declared a desire to establish a Russian military facility in the Caribbean Sea, off America’s doorstep.

You lost all credibility when you labeled Maduro a “dictator”. If Washington, the three-letter-agencies and the pentagon will leave those people alone, they can make their economy perform again ….. just like they did before Washington’s sanctions (act of war), Washington’s oil market manipulation and Washington’s state-sponsored terrorism.
I’ll go further … the US could learn a lot from Venezuela (and many other countries) and NATIONALIZE our oil in the ground. Going further, we could shred the IRS and the income tax and bring home our troops from around the world.
HUH??? It was the nationalization of venezuelas oil, and the downturn in oil prices that caused much of the countries demise. I hope you were being sarcastic.
And you lose all credibility when you say he’s not a dictator.
Chavez and Maduro were free to sell their oil in the USA and operate Citgo gas stations. With massive oil reserves their socialist model still failed
Sorry, another clueless Gringo who doesnt know sheet from his mothers milk.
I have seen idiots like you getting killed in the jungles of latin america.
Immature clowns who have never ventured out and understood local idiosyncrasies.
Chavez was truly elected, as lousy as he tuned out to be, he was elected. Maduro stole the election.
Venezuela is what it is due to failed policies and internal theft by the whole political spectrum. Democrats and socialist stole the national treasures and left the country fo Europe and USA. That nation was broke before Trump came into power, way before.
Grow up, dont end up with a mouth full of flies…
Whatever. Most Americans do not care if Venezuela continues to suck. And if the Kremlin thinks keeping our neocon industrial-military complex busy playing “Whack-A-Mole” is a viable national strategy…you should think again.
Steven H; Before you comment I suggest you get an education and do some traveling, because you sound like an idiot, we have people in country and you have no clue as to the situation nor a firm grasp on reality, so I suggest again to move out of your mommys and daddies Basement and experience the real world before spewing out useless drivel. Also before you embarrass yourself further know that I am one of the people that they send to take care of these type of problems so that people like you can go on playing your videos thinking you are a warrior after playing your silly games.
Sure, must continue to develop the Venezuelan military to fight IT’S OWN PEOPLE, like all communists do.
StevenH, presumably you live in Venezuela and love Maduro? Who is not a dictator? And YOU are credible? Hahaha…
In short Stephen H. you mean the USA should just meekly fall in line with all the other third world countries. Right?
Little Vlad seems to be cruisin’ for a bruisin’ with his twisting of the tiger’s tail. Trump won’t back down to this petty tyrant!
Good heavens, man, what planet do you come from??? You really need to visit one called Earth, and soon!
The three letter agencies and Pentagon ARE leaving them alone, their economy was failing long before Maduro got into power, sanctions are not acts of war, Washington does not manipulate the oil market, and Washington does not conduct terrorism.
The only thing that Washington could learn from Venezuela is what NOT to do to one’s economy. Shredding the IRS and the income tax would lead to anarchy (maybe that’s what you want), and bringing our troops home from around the world is a guarantee for wars everywhere.
Other than that, most of the things you said in your post were true! 🙂
Same foolish mistake the USA made in Iran under the Shah. The Venezuelan people want Maduro out. They will remember the pain Russia has caused them.
Sounds good to me. Let Russia prolong the suffering of the Venezuelan people like the Soviets did to their own kind. The difference is the Bolsheviks never won an election, but Chavez did. I guess that means the Russians are smarter. Good luck to all our South American brothers (just stay out of our country – we don’t want to feed you either).
Interesting that Vlad just had a meeting with the pope. Was he taking orders and receiving the money to fulfill that with wich he was tasked to perform?
Robert E. — right on!!!
Phew, another Russophobe comment section. I like Russia , and I like what Putin is doing. He is using Iran and Veneuzuela to move some Russian Militarry products $$$. Eventually the planet will be overrun by third world. 10 years max. And where is the biggest land mass where the remaining whites can hide? with beacoup fresh water and miles of open land per capita? Russia of course, the most beutifull women? Russia. That’s where you’ll find me. And you will be turned in to a collection of shrunken heads in some ugha booga land. See ya.
Wow, that comment and you might be the stupidest things on the internet. No small feat.
Does Russia ever make friends with normal countries? Or is it just places like Cuba and Venezuela and Syria, China, and Iran?
Er- children don’t know how to play nice in the sandbox? What happened to this country? It used to be Americans were among the best informed and brightest citizens. Now everyone sounds butthurt.
WTF happened? It doesn’t make sense. On the one hand we’ve got the obligatory russian trolls, on the other hand we got the deplorables. Sooo- who is arguing the ?? pro-Trump side?? It isn’t likely liberals post here. So who are you guys arguing with and why?
OK, I get that there may be Venezuelans and other interested non-americans; but they’re not likely to be the prissy, sarcastic, cynical commentators like the boys who post here.
Are any of you “bots”?
How much do you commenting scum get for presenting this rubbish?
