Russian Foreign Ministry: The purpose of the charade around Venezuela is to control the finances abroad
MOSCOW, January 9 – RIA Novosti. He said the point of American nonsense around Venezuelan opposition was control over Venezuelan public finances under foreign jurisdiction. Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation.
In a second hearing on Friday (December 30th), the Venezuelan opposition finally voted to dismantle the “interim government” of Juan Guaido, who illegally declared himself president in 2019. Opposition leaders said the interim government’s resignation was delayed as the structure weakened and failed to fulfill its duties. Thus, Guaido remains an illegitimately declared head of state, with no government and no parliamentary administration.
“The Venezuelan radical opposition, with the support and incitement of Western sponsors, continued its attempts to breathe new life into the work of the “parallel National Assembly” to retain access, one way or another, to the levers of the government. At the same time, it was right and sensible to disband the “interim government” led by Guaido. a decision was made, which confirms what we have been talking about for a long time and again, namely, that there are no legal grounds for the execution of parallel power structures: even the ideological inspirations in Washington, where they “try to keep the Guaido project alive”, the Russian Foreign Ministry said.
According to the ministry, the “circus of dual power” continues in Venezuela.
“Obviously, the tasks of the curators of the “color revolution” that did not take place in Venezuela remain the same … The ultimate purpose of this farce is not hidden – to maintain control over the financial resources of the Venezuelan state, which is under foreign jurisdiction. Apparently, the American “daughter” of the oil state “PDVSA” – ” “There’s gold in Citgo and the Bank of England,” he said.
At the same time, the ministry reaffirmed its desire to continue to strengthen relations with friendly Venezuela and to develop close mutually beneficial cooperation with this country, which will continue to be Russia’s key strategic partner.
