Craig Faller, Navy Admiral and the new head of U.S. Southern Command, claimed that Russia reminded him a “wounded, weakened bear that’s just lashing out” against democratic interests in the region. The voice of America reports this.
“I think with Russia, anything’s possible,” he said. “We’ve seen what they’ve done (in Syria), and I think we have to be prepared for what might happen in the future.”
Besides, in some countries that are not democracies, like Cuba, Venezuela, Nicaragua the influence of Russia and China is rather vivid. That is why the department to the secretary’s office to the National Security Council pays much attention to working on a strategic plan in order to achieve goals.
The Admiral did not answer directly to the questions, whether there is a need for the peacekeeping mission to Venezuela.
As we reported earlier, Ukraine has recognized the leader of Venezuelan opposition Juan Guaido as the head of the only democratically chosen body of the power of Venezuela, the National Assembly and the leader of the democratic opposition.
On January 23, opposition leader Juan Guaido declared himself interim president. He was supported by many countries, including the United States and the United Kingdom.
