Maduro ordered to mobilize artillery to defend Venezuela
In February 2019, trump claimed that Maduro “several months ago” and asked the American President about the meeting with him, but he was refused. Then the US President said that he does not intend to hold a meeting because “in Venezuela happened so many terrible things.”
“It was the richest country in that part of the world. And now we see poverty, suffering, crime and all the other things that take place there”, — said the American leader.
In January 2019, the speaker of the National Assembly Juan Guido declared himself interim President of Venezuela amid protests that arose in the country according to the results of the victory of Maduro in the presidential election. The opposition accused him of fraud. Guido recognized the current President of the United States, and several European and Latin American countries. Russia, China and some other countries expressed support for Maduro.
