Russian Senator: Everything Implying US Military Intervention in Venezuela We Will See as an Aggression

Senator Konstantin Kosachov, head of the international committee of the Upper House of the Russian Federation, said that everything that implies a US military intervention in Venezuela will be seen by Russia as an aggression, Sputnik said on its web portal.

Kosachov affirmed that “of course we are going to interpret as an aggression any scenario of US military intervention, because Venezuela only has one president”, and stressed that the oppositor Juan Guaidó has confirmed that he does not have the support of the people or the army.

Also, on the willingness of Juan Guaidó to study the offer of military US intervention, the senator said that “it completely dispels the doubts about the interests he is serving.”

He also stressed that “the United States would have to assume in fact the reprehensible role of invader and aggressor, instead of inspiring and instigating as now. Even assuming that Guaidó came to power thanks to American bayonets, he would hardly gain popularity and legitimacy in the country and in the world.

This assertion was made by the senator after an interview with The Washington Post newspaper, where the self-proclaimed Juan Guaidó acknowledged that he needs “more soldiers” and “support from higher positions in the regime” to overthrow the government of Nicolás Maduro.

To the question of what he would do in the face of an intervention offer by the US, Guaidó declared that it would be considered and, perhaps, approved by the National Assembly in contempt.
