The Venezuelan military is releasing its S-300VN air defense system from mothballs in Captain Manuel Rios Airbase, according to a sattelite image released by Israel’s ImageSat Intl. This development is likely linked to preparations of the country to fight a possible US invasion.
On February 7, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said during a weekly press briefing that the US has already made decision to use force in Venezula and “everything else is nothing more than a covering operation”.
Meanwhile, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo claimed that “Hezbollah has active cells in Venezuela”. So, the US seems to be already preparing a public justification for a military invasion.
