  • Hypocritical and illegal acts against Venezuela

        The recent movements on the international and diplomatic scenes are jaw-dropping. 34 countries have recently ‘out of the blue’ decided to recognise speaker of the House Juan Guido as the interim president of Venezuela, shocking news to me as I was pretty sure that Maduro won the...
