US authorities and their allies have “set a course for toppling legal power” in Venezuela, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov stated on Tuesday in Moscow at a joint press conference with his Sierra Leone counterpart Alie Kabba.

Lavrov said that Washington’s decision to freeze US-based assets of PDVSA, Venezuela’s state-owned oil and energy company, “once again underlines the cynicism of what is happening, as American companies operating in Venezuela are excluded from the sanctions. That is, they want to change the regime and get the profits.”

The foreign minister also noted that Russia and “other responsible members of the international community will do everything to support Maduro’s legal government in their attempts to assert Venezuela’s Constitution and to assert all constitutional methods of settling a crisis.”

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
