Russia Says It Has Not Received Request For Military Assistance From Venezuela So Far

AP Photo / Ariana Cubillos

On February 11, the Russian Foreign Ministry called US attempts to establish direct ‘contacts’ with the Venezuelan military in a bid to influence its stance “unacceptable”.

Aleksander Shchetinin, head of the Department of Latin America at the Russian Foreign Ministry, clarified that Russia is in a constat contact with the Venezuelan authorities. However, so far, Moscow has not received request for military assistance.

“We are in constant contact with the government of Venezuela in a completely working, normal mode,” Shchetinin told media, according to Sputnik.

The Russian official reaction came in respnose to reports that the US has been being engaged in direct contact with members of Venezuela’s military, encouraging them to pledge allegiance to US-proclaimed interim president Juan Guaido. At the same time, Wasgington is working on new sanctions to pressure the government of Nicolas Maduro.

    Wall Street are going berserk because Venezuela has revenues beyond anybody´s controle.

    300 000 independent small Venezuelan miners are washing gold for a living and deliver it to Venezuela´s Central Bank in exchange for the local currency, and the bank sell gold to Turkey and ME.………..LOL.

    Wall Street are crying over the “disorganised” free market of gold collection, “lack of safety rules”, “human and labour rights”, “black market”, without Washington´s bribe and controle………………LOL.

    • VeeNarian (Yerevan)

      Thanks for the link. The arsehole report from Reuters made me really angry. The message was: how dare the Venezuelan government use its gold, dug up with the enormous effort of its people, to buy food and medicines from Turkey?
      THEY SHOULD STARVE AND DIE OF DISEASE and leave the gold and other resources for the Empire!
      This is the cold and brutal justification for planned genocide by the “superior and civilised” West.

      • Jens Holm

        Thats how it is. Turkey sold nikel to the nazis until the russians took Odesa itself. Maybee Turkey was paid by newprinted Brittish pounds for it.

    People are as dumb as they were thirty years ago. Any country that Dumps the Dollar is doomed by the USA. Russia ,China , Iran, Cuba ,Venezuela,are dumping the dollar.
    There are thirty-six million destitute people living in the USA. Homeless or below the poverty line. The US is trying to cut, what help they get. This is not about human rights. Its about the rich getting richer and stealing oil. I have-not given up hope on Russia, and the US Congress, will not permit a invasion. That only leaves the CIA, that have tried to topple the country over ten times before.

  • verner

    but still, the russkies frightened the crap out of the destitute states of morons (aka usa) when they flew two of their long distance bombers non stop to venezuela and fatso (who should jump in front of the next train to make the world a safer and better place) had a fit and told moscow that that was unheard of and entirely unacceptable – the more than dumb moron, and in moscow they are still having a good and healthy larf.

    • You can call me Al

      Not much being heard about China hey !?…..they are the boys we should be watching, as they have even more to lose than Russia.

      • verner

        china is buying as much crude from venezuela as is technically possible from china’s refinery situation but they are in a trade war with the morons and have to take it easy – donny is a business man and you bet that china’s support of venezuela is part of the bargaining chips donny has on the table. as he is promising equador gazillions of bucks when they evict assange from the embassy in london but the stumbling stone there is that he demands that they, equador, closes down the case for damages against chevron for willful pollution harking back to the 60 70s etc. hard to drop but time will tellllll.

        • You can call me Al

          From my understanding, China do not have the refineries to handle Venezuelan oil YET.

          Assange ?; he is in the Ecuadorian embassy.

          Sorry Verner, I am at a loss (it is late, so that could be the reason), but we are talking Venezuela.

          • verner

            just that donny uses anything in the negotiations – with china one such chip is the crude from venezuela and even if china can’t take limitless of crude from venezuela today, the refineries can adjust the stream in to accomodate venezuelan crude but might result in a yield that doesn’t fit the demand on the chinese market and a need to import e.g. gasoline (from the destitute states of morons (aka usa).

            on assange, donny is offering equador gazillion of dollars if they evict assange from the london embassy – the difficult issue is the chevron pollution judgement (lost in moronistan but won in euador) and that is the hard part for equador to swallow – the pollution caused by chevron is in the biljons so the money received for assange won’t be enough to cover the loss from the chevron issue – and that’s the quandary.

            all I’m saying is that donny is much more versatile when it comes to negotiations compared to say obama and that makes him a more formidable opponent than anyone we’ve seen in a long time.

          • You can call me Al

            Thanks, I didn’t know the Assange + Chevron information.

      • Sinbad2

        Watch the trade talks, they are doing exactly what they did during the negotiations to end the Korean war.
        They always want to talk, and act like they want to make a deal, but it’s BS.
        They will drag the talks out to Trumps deadline and force Trump to either back down or extend the tariffs, which are a tax on Americans and will crash the market.
        In less than a month we will know whether the US will go into depression, or become China’s bitch.

        • Patriotic_White_American

          China’s economy is falling like a rock from the trade war

          Americans don’t even know we’re in one the Chinese are so weak

          LOL

            The only things falling are Wall St. and your 3rd world trains.

          • Sinbad2

            Yes it is, and that means companies like GM will lose a lot of money in China, and it’s their only profitable market..
            It’s about pain tolerance, the Chinese will bear the pain, americun*s will cry into their fries and coke.
            Talking of weak, when those American sailors were captured by Iran and started crying, it brought home to me how weak Americans really are.

          • Jens Holm

            I dont see its like a rock, They need some important adjustments to other countries. China also has rapisly grown because all is new. Now when all is not new, they have to keep all the not new in shape by more then just painting here and there.

            They also have big inviroment problems and not only smog. But that gives big health problems and their coal has sulphur in it making a lot of problems eating all metels as well as make poison.

            So they have to modify their growth into quality, which can be kept. Well thats how I see it..,

        • Jens Holm

          No, we wont. You have no idea about the USA economy as well as how integrated it is with billions in the world economy.

          USA itself has almost full imployment and are probatly making the biggest BNP ever. Thats no depresion but big political internal problems as well as some big adjustments are needed – FROM A VERY HIGH LEVEL.

      • Jens Holm

        At least China has some really big investments in China, but dont get money and oil back for it. Russia has given USSR some small loans only.

        The Venezuelians can learn nothing from Russia apart from their version of Communisme collpased and they have learned nothing by that.

        I have no soultions. If I had, I would send them right away. But they could feed themselves if Maduro by Chavez made ultimative reforms having no tools for it.

        We cant compare, but Denmark is in the middle of Capitalisme and Socialisme. It didnt come from some revolution but in many small solid steps, where better production gave mpore tax for schools, medical care and pension.

        I will say USA cetainly need reforms as well. Here its possible to take the good parts from fx us and modify them to their system, where things are very bad for them. They are not us, but we are better then them in those matters.

    • Jens Holm

      No, USA didnt.

  • Promitheas Apollonious

    I dont think the venezuelans need russia to kick the ass of any one attacking them, unless of course the whole of south america attack venezuela along with their US?Canada buddies.

  • ©igare☘☘e👽Sm⚽️k🚬ng🦉Man️🎲

    I wish the Russians acted more ‘agressively’ towards helping Venezuela.
    I d like to see Venezuela join the BRICS and Brazil get kicked out of it.
    Make it VRICS. Add Iran to that as well and there you have it V.R.I.C.S.I. or V.R.I.I.C.S.

    Russia and China should rush and invest in Venezuela, both in trade and military support, (and maybe its time for China to build it’s second base overseas after the one they have in Eastern Africa) before the U.S. turns Venezueal into the next Vietnam…

    • Sinbad2

      It’s a long way to project power, and the US won’t invade using American troops, it will use terrorists.
      The American objective is to bankrupt Venezuela, so it can pillage via the IMF.
      By stopping oil production they hope to raise the price of oil.
      The gold is now their biggest worry, gold is kryptonite to the US dollar.

      • ©igare☘☘e👽Sm⚽️k🚬ng🦉Man️🎲

        Also…cryptocurrencies are Kryptonite to the US$ 😜👍

        • Sinbad2

          Possibly, but they can ban cryptocurrencies, they already have banned some.
          Gold leaves no trail, doesn’t need the internet, but most importantly is valued by all, even Americans know the value of gold.

        Russia Earns Investment-Grade Rating From Moody’s.

        https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-02-08/russia-raised-to-investment-grade-by-moody-s-on-recent-policies

        Russia’s finance ministry vowed further action to entice fresh capital after Moody’s Investors Service joined two other companies in raising the country’s credit rating to investment grade.

        Moody’s lifted Russia’s rating to Baa3 from Ba1 on Friday, putting the energy giant on par with Italy, South Africa and Hungary. S&P Global Ratings had upgraded the nation from junk last year, bringing it in line with Fitch Ratings.

        • Jens Holm

    Russia could not possibly provide any military assistance of any significance. They’ll provide lip service against America (not necessarily FOR Maduro, but AGAINST the US), but ultimately they will do nothing.

    There are a ton of lying Jew media reports about 50 nations recognizing CIA puppet Guaido. I’ve looked and can’t find them. If you add Canada, the US, Israel and Australia to the 30 in the article below, that brings the number to 34. 34 countries that do recognize him in some manner is 17% of the UN’s 193 members. Which is hardly enthusiastic international support for the Jew world order’s latest regime change crime.

    “on Monday, EU members Spain, Portugal, Germany, the United Kingdom, Denmark, Holland, France, Hungary, Austria, Finland, Belgium, Luxembourg, the Czech Republic, Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, Poland, Sweden and Croatia, signed a joint declaration in support and recognition of Guaido, with the aim of “calling free, fair and democratic presidential elections” in Venezuela.

    Nine EU nations, including Italy, declined to sign the joint statement. Russia, which is one of Venezuela’s principal creditors, also rejected the EU ultimatum that called on Maduro to call for a snap presidential election”

    – 30 countries officially recognise Guaido as Venezuela’s interim President –

    The Venezuelan military is a fairly modern force in terms of equipment. Which means that it’s high tech savvy and should be able to handle upgrades on an as needed basis to counter aggression against it. With what’s available from Russia and China, assuming that they’re willing to provide upgrades and maintain secure resupply in the event of hostilities. The US would have it’s hands full trying to bring about some type of quick and easy Grenada or Panama style invasion and regime change. And would probably fail in the short term.

    The S-300VM and support antiaircraft systems would be a challenge even for the US air force if they perform to specification. And the short, medium and long range missiles that are anti missile system resistant that Venezuela could be provided with, or may already have in some models. Puts regional governments that support hostilities against Venezuela at risk of reciprocal strikes inflicting as much or more damage to their cities and infrastructure as is inflicted on Venezuela from their territory. Which makes getting on board a military regime operation against Venezuela unattractive. They may support the CIA puppet’s farce diplomatically. But most or all of them are going to back out of military support if it means getting dragged into the conflict.

    Which leaves the US navy and air force, and maybe the British, though that’s highly questionable in my opinion, the French even more so with all of the problems that they currently have. And the Germans and rest of NATO are unlikely to get involved. So what are the prospects of US air force and naval success against the Venezuelan military equipped with modern Russian and Chinese equipment?

    It depends on what they’re equipped with and what their competency is with it, and whether the equipment performs to specification. On paper in theory, the US navy and US bases in Panama are vulnerable to missile strikes that they would have difficulty interdicting. Some ordnance from both sides is going to get through and do damage. Where it starts to become paradigm altering is if the Russian and Chinese weapons are more successful at interdicting incoming strikes, and getting past anti missile systems to hit targets than the NATO equipment. There is evidence from the Syrian conflict that that’s the case with the Russian equipment.

    If the US starts losing nuclear subs, ships and planes. And the Panamanians get hammered and the US bases there start suffering a lot of damage taking them out of the fight. Or if the Panamanians prohibit attacks on Venezuela from their territory. Then the US is going to be in for a big mess that is going to make the current administration very unpopular and could easily even lead to it being changed before the next election. But what would follow with a new administration? That’s a good question that I don’t have the answer to. But one thing is for sure. If the US starts losing a lot of equipment to peer or superior weapons. There would be a sea change realignment away from the US, NATO, Israel, GCC Jew world order, to a multi polar world order led by the SCO.

        You can divide an apple or an orange in half in many ways. You seemes only to know equator.

        Other not know knowing advanced words like that would say Russia as far away compared to USA.

        Besides that, its a well known way to see the whole world as projektion, but its full of misytakes. Russia and Canada is not that big as well as Greenland is only 1/3 of Australia even it look about the same in seize.

        You could learn about that and this https://da.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marilyn_Monroe on internet.

        • ©igare☘☘e👽Sm⚽️k🚬ng🦉Man️🎲

          The equator provides a natural division between the northern and southern hemispheres of our planet, based on its axis of rotation. There are clearly defined patterns in atmospheric winds and ocean currents that mirror each other across this boundary.

          In terms of “east” and “west”, any such division is completely arbitrary.
          When people talk about the “western hemisphere” vs. the “eastern hemisphere”, they are referring to a cultural construction that has to do with historical relationships between the populations of different regions of the planet. Exactly what is contained in the “western hemisphere” or “eastern hemisphere” varies depending upon whose definition you choose.
