On March 27, speaking in the White House, US President Donald Trump said that Russia must get out of Venezuela and warned that “all options are open” in order to achieve this goal.

Around 100 Russian troops touched down in Caracas on March 23 under the terms of a 2001 cooperation treaty between the two states. The move caused a wave of rumors in the mainstream media.

US Vice President Mike Pence described the deployment an “unnecessary provocation.” Pence also called on Moscow to withdraw its support of Venezuelan President Maduro and “stand with Juan Guaido,” the Washington-proclaimed interim president of the country.

Trump’s Security Adviser John Bolton was more hostile in his remarks.
