As was to be expected, on January 23, the leader of the Venezuelan opposition, Juan Guaydo, led the speeches against Nicolas Maduro and declared himself the interim president of Venezuela. And literally on the same day he was recognized by US President Donald Trump.
The split of Venezuela occurred after the inauguration of Maduro on January 10, 2019. His victory was challenged by the West, in response Maduro formally severed diplomatic relations with the United States and accused Trump of intent to carry out a coup in Venezuela.
States, in turn, denied the charges and said they intend to cooperate with Venezuela through Guaydo.
Ukraine welcomed the arrival of Guaydo, and Russia expressed unconditional support for Maduro. Oil collapsed on the world market, democratic institutions of Venezuela over Guaydo, the army holds the side of Maduro. However, there was information that in one of the provinces the troops went over to the side of the rebellious Guaydo. According to some reports, Maduro appeared in Moscow.
President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko in Davos put a hairpin in Yulia Tymoshenko: “Those who declare a fixed price for gas below the market, they promise the same that Chavez and Maduro did in Venezuela. And now the people of Venezuela are saying no to populism … The style of government of Maduro leads to the results of Maduro. »
Meanwhile, Poroshenko knowingly watches Maduro so intently. The scenario, repeatedly worked out (the last example is Armenia), can be implemented in Ukraine. And it is from the United States.
Thus, the States “hung up” one of the candidates who had a chance to win the presidential elections in Ukraine. And in Venezuela took revenge for Syria, which, in fact, passed the Russian Federation and Turkey.
Externally, the position of Russia in Venezuela bits. But not everything is so simple: the Kremlin is unable to finance the whole of Venezuela, it has specific business interests in certain regions. Which will try to keep Maduro with the help of the army loyal to him. And let the rest of the territory fed States, if they so wish.
So in Venezuela, the Ukrainian scenario of 2013-2014 was partially repeated. And, of course, noticing the similarities, Petro Poroshenko becomes very careful.
Moreover, in Venezuela, the interests not of two, but of three superpowers came together: the Russian Federation, the United States and China. Xi Jinping does not suit Putin, completely controlled by Maduro. Given the fact that Poroshenko in Davos paid special attention to the representative of China, Venezuela can really be divided into territories of influence with regard to (perhaps for the first time so openly China’s interests. And Ukraine may be preparing for a new trend of world politics.
