In Germany: Maduro lacks money for anything but Russian weapons


Today Venezuela is in a catastrophic situation. In the country there is a shortage of the most necessary and a record level of inflation, because of which the country's citizens are massively leaving abroad. Despite all this, the legitimate president of the Bolivarian Republic, Nicolas Maduro, finds money to acquire Russian weapons without finding them for anything else. And the Kremlin is ready to do its utmost to support its regime, which is afraid of an imperialist attack.


This interpretation of events is offered in Germany - the authors of Der Tagesspiegel.

The Venezuelan leader believes that his country is under threat of external intervention, and he has reasons for this. His main opponents - US President Donald Trump and opposition leader Juan Guaido - have repeatedly stated in their speeches that they do not exclude a military solution to the Venezuelan issue, including through foreign invasion. Therefore, the fears of Nicolas Maduro can hardly be considered an attack of paranoia.

According to German journalists, this allows Venezuela to justify the holding of large military exercises and the purchase of large parties weapons in Russia, even despite the difficult economic situation of the country. In turn, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, during his visit to Caracas, said that Russia was ready to further develop military-technical cooperation with this Latin American country.

A few days ago, Guaido was invited to the US Senate, where Trump introduced him as "the head of Venezuela and a fighter for democracy."

    Today Venezuela is in a catastrophic situation.

    Like Syria ... like Libya ... like Iraq ... and the United States is to blame ... it is the USA that is the main culprit in the suffering of these countries.

      Are these countries only? The whole world is groaning. There are sanctions, there is war, there they squeezed something out, they killed someone, there they bombed someone, there they pump rights, they indicate somewhere another color revolution and so on. I am already silent about the dollar as the main weapon of the American imperialists.

      Yeah. The damned are to blame. But Maduro did the right thing. He did not invest in the oil industry, and every year Venezuelan oil production fell.

        His predecessor nationalized the oil industry. Forgetting that the oil in Venezuela is superheavy, it flows with difficulty through pipes. Only the Dutch were able to extract it, and only the Americans in Texas were able to process it.
        All unique equipment was ruined. The booty is almost up. The country went bankrupt.

          Yarega, Komi Republic - a mine (namely a mine) for the production of heavy oil. The production technology is simple - ultra-hot steam under pressure is fed into the rock. Under temperature, oil becomes more or less liquid, then it is pumped further. So it has been mined for about 70 years. Your Dutch have never dreamed of such nanotechnologies.

            Russia has experience working with heavy oil, there is no dispute.
            But Maduro offered Russian oil companies to mine and sell Venezuelan oil. The Russians came there. But they refused in the end.
            There it turned out to be more complicated than warming up with steam ...

              Maduro is still a “carrot”, rates are rising, letting Russians into the oil industry near the US is a serious step for him. At stake is his head))) And in such a situation, "the game should be worth the candle", he turned down the conditions - paying off the negative consequences. Ours did not agree.

      Do you doubt it? Let's look at the example of official statements from Ukraine. GDP is "rising", the army is "the strongest in Europe", the people are "supporting the authorities in every way", salaries are "growing", the economy is "growing stronger", "the whole world is with us" and so on. This is what life-giving democracy does. I do not understand why the Venezuelans do not agree? lol

        Venezuelans already agree on everything. In our disputes about who is better than Maduro or Guaido, the situation gradually reached the point where the state of Venezuela practically ceased to exist. Such precedents with the extinction of states have been in history before. Without any wars and revolutions.

        And by the way, your prime minister hurried to recognize Guaido as "interim president of Venezuela." To this day, he never took up his duties.

    All right
    As practice has shown, in order for the population not to get worse, the state needs weapons. Especially when an international gopnik is nearby, and he is already interested in the contents of your pockets.

    After all, there are examples of the sea. Iraq, Libya, Syria, on the one hand. And North Korea on the other.

    Koreans may be "not free", they may be starving. But they live in contrast to the "accompanying victims of democratization"

              I rarely lie, just for the sake of good or peace of mind. England froze about $ 30 billion in its banks, and about 3-4 billion more in personal accounts.
              Why does Venezuela keep money there?
              But that is not the point. Production has been going on for many years, the country is small, and living standards have been falling for many years. A couple of years ago there were no sanctions. Shave the petroleum itself mined. Norway mined. Do you seriously think that this money would not be enough? Yes, the standard of living would be better than in Libya, with norms of leadership. The people did not just complain.
              The monarchies of the Persian Gulf live, do not suffer from friendship with the United States. And they live without oil, Japan, Korea, Europe.
              And in Europe, when the ATS was falling apart, the poorest country was Romania in terms of GDP per capita, guess where it is now and where Russia is prosperous. And we all then borrowed for free.

                It turns out that it is enough to simply follow the orders of the Americans and pay bribes to their politicians, so that the "Shining City on the Hill" treats with understanding any things, even the murder and dismemberment of the opposition?

                That is, by and large, the main thing is not democracy or the standard of living of the people, the main thing is how deep is the language in the American ass?

                With a sufficiently deep penetration, the Americans will not only not rob the accounts of the “wrong state”, they will even give money to bring down the heat of protests. Like Obama to the King of Jordan ...

    and what is wrong? Let Maduro sometimes talk with a bird, BUT! Look, the country is supported by the whole "progressive" world ... and what are the successes ??? Venezuela is crushed, again, by the entire "progressive" world, and what are their successes, I want to ask?

          The commandments are followed in specially designated places, monasteries are called. For this they came up with.
          But in worldly life it is difficult to follow certain commandments, and there is no need for this. You don’t drink at all, you reject the pickles, have you ever lied to anyone?
          The rest is called ethics.

            I would prefer to call it moral, but this is far from "other things." No one is sinless, of course, but if society does not strive for ideal, then to Sodom and Gomorrah the path is very short. The West is almost there.

              Judging by the pathos-snobbish tone of the initial comment that we are discussing, the author does not rank himself as a supporter of the Antichrist. Therefore, he does not lie to anyone.
              But if it does lie, does this mean that there is an unbredable lie, or that it is possible to lie to some exceptional people, and this does not make them drugs of the army of the Antichrist?

          the ninth commandment is not a ban on falsehood but on perjury
          לֹא-תַעֲנֶה בְרֵעֲךָ עֵד שָׁקֶר

          You shall not bear false witness against thy neighbor.

            Briefly - "Do not give false testimony." I know.
            But practically, any lie is directed against anyone, i.e. and there is perjury. And in politics, for sure, any.

              in the Old Testament this commandment is aimed precisely at maintaining order through the solution of friction with the help of the court.
              perjury undermines the establishment of order, makes the law enforcement system impotent.

                  no. I believe that lying is not good for anyone.
                  the commandment does not apply to relations between people, but to a code of laws defining a system of law.

                  By the way, if you keep the commandments, then, in principle, there is no reason to lie to anyone.
                  I didn’t kill anyone. He didn’t steal, didn’t commit adultery, didn’t want his neighbor’s things.

                      agree with you.
                      what strikes me personally is that the commandments (10) were accepted by the Jewish people thousands of years ago, which is not at all trivial in those years of the complicated customs of the peoples of those times.

    Maduro finds money for the acquisition of Russian weapons, not finding them for anything else
    How does the German media worry in one place when it comes to Russia or the countries that it supports. The directly fascist darling rushing from these "democratic" publications. By and large, you do not care what, and from whom Maduro buys. It would be better to sort out their migration policies. Soon the Germans will plow exclusively on the content of migrants. Then we’ll see what the German media will “sing”.

              I have been living with relatives there since the late twenties of the last century. Of the wage workers, the peasant became the owner of a small workshop, then opened his own factory, then became the largest furniture manufacturer in the country. Chavez strangled such legislatively. Raised taxes, threw a social network. The rich began to leave the country, nationalized enterprises quickly became unprofitable or split into smaller ones, which increased unemployment. And - the collapse of oil prices - the state social security has been bent. I don’t know about the blockade and freezing of accounts - the fact that inside the country Chavez blocked many accounts is a fact.

    there, as in Greece, there were too many "benefits". people on relax ... and as the cancer whistled, so oh ... they ran. about inside Schengen internal migrants is difficult to notice. but the Greeks are looking for a place in the sun in Norway and other Germany. that is, in the territory of a more successful neighbor. and Venezuela has plenty of oil! it’s just geographically that export depends on the buyer. and most of all they took the USA + financial suffocating instruments. production was dumped there more by political methods. and precisely because there is oil there ... but not about the honor of Venezuelans. we had it in the 90s, remember
