“We are not seduced by lies repeated a thousand times. We know that Putin is defending the Russian people's right to peace and dignity,” President Nicolas Maduro said.
On Tuesday, Venezuela's President Nicolas Maduro ratified the Bolivarian nation's support for the Russian people in the face of aggressive stances taken by the United States, the European Union (EU), and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO).
"Venezuela announces all its support for President Vladimir Putin in his defense of peace in Russia, his people, and his homeland. All our support for President Putin!", he said and rejected the U.S. plans to fence politically, economically and militarily to Russia.
"The peace of Russia is the peace of the world and we are going to defend it... Russia and all the peoples of the world must be respected."
Maduro also pointed out that the actions taken against Russia show that the United States and its European allies continue to think of the world from the logic that empires have towards their colonies.
