Crisis in Venezuela . After the deployment of the ‘destroyers’ of the United States in Florida, the Maduro regime proved a Russian missile capable of destroying them.
Venezuela responds The militia of the Chavista regime of Nicolás Maduro carried out tests of the military weapons it has. During the exercises of the Angostura 2019 Bicentennial, in the midst of the crisis of shortages , the oil country showed before the eyes of the world how an anti-ship missile manufactured by the Russians works.
The Bolivarian Military Aviation of Venezuela conducted a joint exercise with the Air Force, which consisted of a Sukhoi Su-30MK2V fighter-bomber firing a Kh-31 anti-ship missile, manufactured as to damage the ‘destroyers’ deployed by the United States . In addition, the images also show warships and a monitoring room.
This powerful war weapon purchased by Venezuela from Russia is a supersonic missile designed to destroy radar installations and with enough power to take down a warship, according to Infoabe . It has a range of 100 kilometers and flies at a speed of about 4287 kilometers per hour.
The demonstration of military exercises and their great cost occur in the context of an acute economic crisis and shortage in Venezuela . However, they are also a response of the Nicolás Maduro regime to the deployment of the United States aircraft carrier on the coasts of Florida, the area closest to South America.
Added to that, the government of the United States has not only given a sample of their naval power, but has also struggled against Nicolas Maduro in the political arena. He was one of the first countries to recognize Juan Guaidó as “interim” president and he also urged the international community to recognize him. On the other hand, it has also sent humanitarian aid to the border of Venezuela with Colombia, Cúcuta, to alleviate the serious crisis in the Caribbean country .
The exhibition of the Sukhoi Su-30MK2V fighter bomber by the Nicolás Maduro regime would show that the Chavista leader is not alone. If on the one hand most of Latin America, the United States , Canada and the European Union have recognized Juan Guaidó as president “in charge” of Venezuela , on the other hand, the man who calls himself the “son of Chávez” has the support of Russia, China, Turkey and Iran.
The international community has asked Nicolás Maduro to avoid a war. However, the Chavez leader has maintained his refusal to leave power. Despite this, it intends not to allow the entry of humanitarian aid to the Bolivarian Republic.
Russia has on several occasions stressed its support for the Nicolás Maduro regime and on different occasions has provided its army with weapons to defend its sovereignty. Vladimir Putin, president of the European country, did not refuse to intervene if the United States prepares an offensive against Venezuela .
On the other hand, Juan Guaidó continues to visit houses of studies and theaters of Caracas to present the country plan, in which he assures that with “the cessation of the usurpation, government of transition, and free elections” will be able to remove Nicolás Madurofrom power.
Currently, the United States is the one who supports the opposition of Juan Guaidó , who from the first day he was sworn in was approved by Donald Trump .
He also head of the National Assembly of Venezuela of majority asked for a humanitarian aid to the United States between medicines, food and medical supplies, which is now staying on the border with Colombia and according to Guaidó , the next 23 of fefrero will enter the oil country “Yes or yes”.
