Russia might send warships and subs off the coast of Venezuela to help the country
MOSCOW, (BM) – As follows from the data provided by the Venezuelan authorities, Russia is ready to provide the Bolivarian Republic with the necessary support and assistance if the United States wants to arrange a naval blockade of this country.
Given the remoteness of Russia from Venezuela, experts do not exclude that Moscow can send its fleet to this region, moreover, we are talking not only about warships, but also submarines.
“We must return to the issue of the US blockade around Venezuela, which is supposedly aimed at blocking drug trafficking from this country. Our analysis shows that Washington’s accusations and attacks against Caracas are false. We believe that they do not correspond to reality and hardly correspond to the conclusions and assessments of the relevant UN agencies,” the official resource of the Venezuelan department said.
Experts do not exclude the possibility that, against the backdrop of a possible blockade of Venezuela, Russia and the United States may again face the Caribbean crisis, and given the fact that recently the United States has increasingly taken rash steps, the confrontation off the coast of Venezuela could result in clashes as well.
Other experts believe Russia’s support for Venezuela has another purpose, namely the deployment of Russian ballistic and cruise missiles in the country, to increase pressure on the United States.
“Russia has the ability to send missile deployment systems to Venezuela, but let’s not forget that the United States can deploy its warships and block naval access to the country in a very short time, which brings us back to the Kennedy era and the Cuban crisis,” some specialist say.
