USA tried to turn the pandemic into a factor to promote the invasion of Venezuela

The President of the Republic, Nicolás Maduro, asserted this Saturday that the situation of the covid-19 pandemic was intended to be used to promote an invasion against the country.

Interviewed by the “Diálogo Internacional” (International Dialogue) radio program, the head of state recalled that Venezuela was the victim of more than 500 unilateral sanctions, imposed by the United States (USA), which were intensified during the pandemic:

What we did was a strategy of resistance and we planned to guarantee the people their food, medicines, to maintain education and employment levels and guarantee through the Carnet De La Patria (Homeland card), where more than 21 million Venezuelans are, guarantee reinforcement bonuses to their income”. said the National President.

The pandemic arrived in 2020 and with the pandemic we believed that due to the environment, which was created in the world of solidarity, in the first months, that there could be the possibility of human relaxation of that blockade, persecution sanctions and it was the opposite, the measures were intensified and a campaign was launched to say that Venezuela was going to be the world epicenter of the pandemic and it was almost said that Venezuela had to be invaded to prevent it from becoming contaminated”, he added during the interview.

In this regard, he stressed that it was during the pandemic; where the attacks against Venezuela intensified, including the sabotage of public services, as well as the attempted invasion of Venezuela on May 3.

It should be remembered that the former US Secretary of Defense, Mark Esper, revealed in his book the military invasion and assassination attempts promoted from the White House, between 2019 and 2020: which were discussed by the then self-proclaimed deputy “interim president”, Juan Guaidó.

Esper’s statements were made known by the Venezuelan ambassador to the United Nations (UN), Samuel Moncada. The first was a military attack on the José Refining Complex, Anzoátegui state; in order to paralyze the country’s oil economy, generating chaos and destabilization that would promote the overthrow of President Nicolás Maduro.

The other action they planned in the White House was the direct assassination of President Nicolás Maduro; and the last one was a simultaneous naval blockade of Cuba and Venezuela.
