Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaido said Venezuelan President Nicholas Maduro’s government was attempting to move roughly $1.2 billion from state-owned development bank BANDES into an account in Uruguay, while speaking to the press in Caracas on Monday.

“As a result of the decisions of Europe and the United States, they are trying to keep stealing money… they are trying to move money from BANDES [development bank] that was in one of the accounts to Uruguay,” Guaido said, before specifying they were attempting to move “between 1 and 1.2 billion dollars.”

Guaido also commented on the Monday decision of many European countries to recognise him as Venezuela’s interim president.

“In the European Union, I believe that the support of 95% or 96% of the countries that make up the European Union is absolutely overwhelming, so we welcome that support,” he said.

Numerous members of the European Union announced their support for Guaido on Monday, piling on the international pressure after a deadline for Maduro to call for fresh presidential elections passed without action the day before.

Doesn’t matter who runs Venezuela. It will be a basket case whether run as a socialist state or as an American poodle. It’s their oil that the Americans’ want to control and to prevent China from accessing it. Simple as that. The Americans couldn’t care less about the well being of the people whom they regard as more potential “wetbacks”

This traitor to its country (USA-puppet) must be put in jail.
