Russia will prevent US intervention in Venezuela: Official

A Russian official says Moscow will do all it can to prevent potential intervention in Venezuela by the United States, which has not ruled out the military option to overthrow the elected government of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro.

Valentina Matviyenko, the chairperson of Russia’s Federation Council — the upper house of the Russian legislature — made the comment at a meeting with Venezuelan Vice President Delcy Rodriguez in Moscow on Sunday.

“We are very much concerned that the US could carry out any provocations to shed blood, to find a cause and reasons for an intervention in Venezuela,” Matviyenko said, stressing that Moscow “will do all in order not to allow this.”

Venezuela has been in political turmoil over the past weeks. The opposition has been holding widespread anti-government protests, blaming Maduro for an ailing economy, hyperinflation, power cuts, and shortages of basic items, and urging him to resign.
