The Head of the Venezuelan Constitutional Assembly, Diosdado Cabello, during a meeting with the Chairman of the State Duma, Vyacheslav Volodin, said Venezuela was not involved in the protests in Ecuador and Haiti.
“We were accused of contributing to the protests in Ecuador, but we were not at all involved in this. This is also related to Haiti, where for four weeks they have not been able to get a drop of fuel and people are taking to the streets, protesting against this situation and their government. Venezuela has nothing to do with it”, – Tass quotes Cabello as saying.
He also noted the obstruction of the US sanctions on the delivery of oil by Venezuelan tankers to the Caribbean.
Earlier, Volodin said that Russia was ready to “give a hand” to Caracas in matters of protecting the sovereignty of Venezuela.
On October 3, a state of emergency was introduced in Ecuador due to protests that arose against the background of the signing by the head of the country, Lenin Moreno, of a decree on the abolition of gasoline subsidies.
The free movement of citizens near government buildings and strategic facilities was limited, a curfew was imposed in the capital, and military control was organized. Later, the authorities concluded an agreement on the cessation of protests in the country with protesters.
On Tuesday, October 15, Moreno revoked the decree that caused the riots.
