Russia says US aid to Venezuela a ‘pretext for military action’

Russia says US aid to Venezuela a 'pretext for military action'Russia on Friday accused the United States of using aid deliveries to Venezuela as a ploy to carry out military action against President Nicolas Maduro’s government. “A dangerous provocation, instigated and led by Washington, is planned for February 23,” foreign ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said, pointing to efforts by opposition leader Juan Guaido to pick up US aid being stockpiled on the Colombian border. Guaido’s plans to try to bring the aid across the border are aimed at provoking clashes, she said, to provide “a convenient pretext for conducting military action”.
