Pompeo Warns Russia To 'Cease' Bringing Military Into Venezuela
CNN reports US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo spoke with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov on Monday and called on Russia "to cease its unconstructive behavior" in Venezuela.
The statement said: The United States "will not stand idly by as Russia exacerbates tensions in Venezuela.
The continued insertion of Russian military personnel to support the illegitimate regime of Nicolas Maduro in Venezuela risks prolonging the suffering of the Venezuelan people who overwhelmingly support interim President Juan Guaido." Russian planes arrived on Saturday at Simon Bolivar International Airport near Caracas.
