Last Saturday, two Russian air force planes arrived in Venezuela, outside Caracas, believed to be carrying nearly 100 Russian special forces and cybersecurity personnel. That appears to have escalated the political crisis in the country.

Russia and China have backed President Nicolas Maduro, along with Cuba. Communists stick together.

President Donald Trump called on Russia to pull its troops from Venezuela and said that “all options” were open to make that happen. Other Western countries support newly elected opposition leader Juan Guaido. In January, Guido invoked the Venezuelan constitution to assume Venezuela’s interim presidency, as according to the constitution, Maduro’s 2018 election was illegitimate.

Russia has to get out,” Trump told reporters in the Oval Office, where he met with Guaido’s wife, Fabiana Rosales.
