In this regard, the Head of State also revealed that recently a United States warship tried to enter the Venezuelan waters, but was deterred by the Bolivarian Republic's military.
Given these interference efforts against Venezuela, the President called the Bolivarian National Armed Forces (FANB) to the highest conscience and to the maximum fulfillment of the patriotic duty in defense of national sovereignty.
In advance, the President indicated through his Twitter account that February 4 is "the essence and the moral key to continue the defense of our right to have a free homeland," Maduro said before starting a military march, accompanied by the country's high political and military command.
On Tuesday, Venezuela planned a series of activities in commemoration of the National Dignity Day, including the military march through Caracas.
In the early hours of the morning, a military civic walk was carried out to the Mountain Barracks, where the remains of the leader of the Bolivarian Revolution, commander Hugo Chávez, were laid to rest.
This Tuesday marks the 28th anniversary of the rebellion of February 4, 1992 , a civic-military uprising led by Commander Hugo Chavez that stopped the neoliberal package from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) during the period of the Fourth Republic that kept the Venezuelan people in a deep social, political and economic crisis.
The events that occurred on February 4, 1992, led to the fall of the Fourth Republic and led to the rise of the Bolivarian Revolution in the government.
