Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov said on January 9th that Moscow warns “hotheads” in the United States against a military scenario in Venezuela.

According to the Russian news agency TASS, Ryabkov said, “I view US attempts to consolidate the anti-Chavez front from Latin American states with anxiety and concerns, this is an alarming trend.

Despite tough standoff, even the governments in Latin America, which have taken the most critical stance against Caracas, rule out an option of military intervention in Venezuela’s affairs. An attempt to use military force would be a catastrophic development.”

He also stressed, “We warn ‘hotheads’ in Washington against such temptations.”
