Russian Ambassador Says Reports on Alleged Russian Mercenaries in Venezuela Hoax

Sputnik – 26.01.2019

Russian Ambassador in Caracas Vladimir Zaemsky slammed on Friday in a conversation with Sputnik media reports about alleged presence of “private military contractors” from Russia in Venezuela as “another hoax.

“I don’t know about the presence of any Russian private military companies in Venezuela. This is another hoax,” Zaemskiy said.

Earlier in the day, Reuters news agency reported, citing anonymous sources, that “private military contractors who do secret missions for Russia” had recently arrived in Venezuela, which is currently going through a political crisis, to boost safety of the country’s incumbent president, Nicolas Maduro.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told Reuters that Kremlin had “no such information.”

On Tuesday, the opposition-run Venezuelan National Assembly adopted a statement declaring President Nicolas Maduro a “dictator.” On Wednesday, opposition leader Juan Guaido proclaimed himself the country’s interim president at a mass rally in Caracas. The United States, Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Chile and Colombia, among others, have recognized Guaido as Venezuela’s interim president, while some other countries, including Russia and Mexico, expressed support for incumbent President Maduro.

  1. “I don’t know about the presence of any Russian private military companies in Venezuela. This is another hoax,”

    Just more “Russia bashing” by the completely corrupted American Mass Media, which also wants you to believe that Russia “Rigged” Trumps election win…..Total fantasy

  2. “alleged,” “anonymous,” “hoax,” faux (news), coup, deja vu: par for the (CIA) course and among its nefarious bag of dirty tricks.

    :…some other countries, including Russia and Mexico,….” I’m surprised that “Cuba” wasn’t deemed worthy of inclusion in this list, inasmuch as I have no doubt that Cuba is indeed in “…support (of) incumbent President Maduro.”
