Russia is deploying troops to Venezuela in a bid to protect Maduro’s bloothirsty regime in the face of possible action. The Daily Star reports:
Two Russian Air Force reportedly planes landed in Venezuela’s main airport on Saturday carrying a Russian defence official and around 100 troops.
One flight tracking website shows two aircraft left a Russian military base for the Venezuelan capital Caracas on Friday, with a further jet leaving on Sunday.
The arrival of the military jets was confirmed by Javier Mayorca, an independent journalist, who said an Antonov-124 cargo plane and a smaller jet touched down late on Saturday.
He said approximately 100 soldiers – led by General Vasily Tonkoshkurov, who is head of the Mobilization Directorate of Russia’s armed forces – was also seen, as well as 35 tons of equipment.
This is an egregious violation of the Monroe Doctrine, and the United States should respond in kind.
if we were going to do something id should of been Trump Said the other man was president now its going to be a heck of a mess with us with so many troops scattered all over the place
Russia is doing this just to test President Trump. It would be nice if Congress and the liberals would support him.
