Maduro to visit Putin amid threat of war with Guyana

Dec 7, 2023

Yuri Ushakov, the Russian President's aide for international affairs, announced that Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro's next visit to Moscow is being prepared.


The specific date will be announced in the coming days. Ushakov also said that "the possibility of Maduro's visit to Moscow in December this year was agreed upon a long time ago," Guildhall reports.

Last November, Venezuelan Foreign Minister Ivan Gil met with his Russian counterpart, Sergei Lavrov, in Moscow.

Venezuela may soon invade the small American country of Guyana to annex its Essequibo region, which makes up more than 60% of the country's territory and is claimed by the Venezuelan government. If successful, this scenario could trigger a major regional conflict involving not only Guyana and Venezuela but also Brazil and other neighboring countries, as well as the United States and other international players.
