    Venezuela paid off its debt with Russia in rubles

    Venezuela crisis - Page 35 3e6cd9359a92678ed8180b7402ffed5c  

    Venezuela made another calculation on the debt to Russia in rubles. The Ministry of Finance explained that they provide a similar opportunity to all debtors.


    According to Deputy Finance Minister Sergei Storchak, quoted by RBC, it was the choice of the official Caracas.
    “We have such a right and this opportunity we provide to all debtors. It is their choice,” he said.
    The total tranche equivalent amounted to about $ 200 million. It is not known in which assets Venezuela paid the debt. According to the publication, the Bolivarian Republic can no longer pay non-cash dollars due to US sanctions. It was previously assumed that Caracas would pay the tranche with oil or gold.
    As Ruposters previously reported, US President Donald Trump, speaking at the UN General Assembly, promised to end the policy of endless wars. At the same time, he called socialism the main threat, mentioning Venezuela.

    The sad thing is how the sheeple fall for such dirty tricks. None of them stops to think why "regime opponents" are offed after they become irrelevant.
    Just for the relish of the "dictator"? People with normal IQ should see through such crap. Cherchez le gagnant. The clowns making the political hay
    out of any regime opponent death are the ones by far the most likely to be responsible. Every freaking case of a "political murder" claimed by the west has
    followed this pattern; the opponents get to run around for years and years doing as much damage as they can and just when they are finally fading into history,
    boom, they are revived as martyrs. Much like Assad's alleged use of chemical weapons. In tiny amounts in a tiny number of alleged cases exclusively
    to kill a couple of dozen civilians without any military or even psychological effect (if anything such pathetic attacks on civilians as a psy-op would produce
    the opposite effect by rallying sentiment against the "regime" instead of sowing fear). Transparent, staged anti-Assad frauds by the western self-designated
    do-gooders.

    The Trump administration has launched a new effort to oust embattled Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro in hopes of facilitating a democratic transition in the ailing socialist state. The plan points to Venezuela's coronavirus response as a reason to get rid of Maduro. Under the plan, Venezuela's National Assembly would create a Council of State to serve as the governing body until presidential elections are held. This new strategy comes less than a week after the US Justice Department announced narco-terrorism charges against Maduro and senior Venezuelan leaders.

    America's history of meddling in Latin America has only resulted in gross human rights abuse and misery. Endless installation
    of death squad juntas was always called "promotion of democracy". The US has no special rights to install any regime in Venezuela
    based on its internal failures. Real democracy is for the locals to implement and not for outsiders to use as a pretext.
    All the bitching about Venezuela boils down to rampant crime. This crime is due to the criminals and their likely foreign
    backers and not due to Maduro. There is no evidence of any pro-US regime is going to exterminate the criminals and
    solve the crime problem. They will do what they do in the rest of the world and make accommodation deals to have the
    criminals ease off on disrupting daily life. Some two-bit thugs will likely be shot for effect. But it will be just a whitewash.

    Things were going well in the early stage of Chavez's socialist reforms. But things went south towards the end when he
    started nationalizing too many sectors of the economy. He should have settled for a mixed economy.

    creating fake groups in the country wont actually do anything. They will end up being ignored in the end.

    Those with the power are those with the military on thier side. So far, Maduro has the military on his side.

    The best thing the US could do to help Venezuela recover and grow and develop is to lift all the economic sanctions and leave it the fuck alone...

    The Venezuelan condition is well known to Cuba and North Korea and Iran and Vietnam and Russia and China and it is called western bullying... the tolerant west is a bully and a racist and a bigot and an insufferable bore. You can be a fag and have same sex marriage but don't you dare prevent our rich from buying up and squandering your resources or there will be trouble.

    Probably about now really.

    He's become a clown in his own country, abroad, and made the countries that recognized him as the Venezuelan president into clowns too.

    He's no threat to Maduro and the boys; whose strategy (advised by Russia AFAIK) was just to ignore him and it worked.

    Of course Kasparov, Navalny and similar failed clowns are still alive and well. So maybe Guaido will get to preserve his life after all.

    The story for Navalny is not over yet and he may well be offed to boost the "resistance to Putin". But Kasparov is probably safe in the
    USA since he is utterly irrelevant for years already.

    But that is the problem... when they become ineffective they are more a burden than a useful piece... cut your losses and try to make a move with their deaths... it is a bit like the Ukraine... it is not much use against Russia any more and is likely costing a lot of money to prop up... but to drop the Ukraine and suck up to Russia for economic reasons would be out of character and bad form even for them... they are pretty much stuck with the Ukraine... but not with individual people who can be whacked quite cheaply and easily... some new western unit could do it for practise or training... and try to make it look like something Putin ordered himself... sort of the opposite of the Kashogi case really...

    But why should I care about these d bags... do what you like to them...

    This is very likely. The yanquis are not able to stage a direct invasion. They need "jihadi" proxies.

    they have been working with terrorists for a very long time... sorry, did I say terrorist... I should say moderate terrorists, or preferably freedom fighters to remove the democratically elected leader of venezuela to be replaced by someone the current US administration approves of who has never won a presidential election in venezuela in their lives... that is why you have to use terrorists to get it done rather than rational law abiding people...

    They still have too many troops still in the ME, Europe, Afghanistan & Asia-Pacific, most of whom r not trained in jungle warfare. Besides, the Covid-19 pandemic won't allow it any time soon.

    The person most in need of protection now is Guaido.

    From the US perspective we are probably at peak 'Guaido die a martyr' time. Now the US has done the groundwork they need to replace him with more 'a man of the people' type that has a better chance of being accepted.

    If he is murdered, by Maduro of course Laughing then the US will claim the right to take out the murderer. Standard operating procedure for them south of the border.

    And that western consumer sheep lap up such obvious frame jobs tells us a lot about their level. These sheep are just as guilty as their dear leaders
