Russia, China Fight US Push Against Venezuela’s Maduro

The United States continues its attempts to press and separate the Venezuelan regime which is under the leadership of Nicolas Maduro. According to latest reports by American news agencies, United States is also planning to impose further sanctions on a country on the northern coast of South America.

On another side, there American authorities’ support is being seen for opposition leader Juan Guaido, while over the week after protests went off through the streets of the embattled nation, although Venezuelan’s leader appears to be steadfast yet.

But what makes Maduro stronger in spite of United States pressure?

It is said to be that Russia and China are working behind the Maduro’s presidency by providing him complete support that what is making spoil all efforts of United States authorities.

An executive director of the Center for a Secure Free Society, an independent global research group, Mr. Joseph Humire to media like this, “Russia and China are using Venezuela as a proxy conflict to challenge the U.S. This is more than just economic support. Russia and China are leveraging its economic support to establish a military-industrial presence in Venezuela,”

He added, “It’s a geopolitical chess game.”

It appears to actually a chess game among strong contenders, while China and Russia will not be losing that game easily, but what happened if United States support behind Juan Guaido happens successful and Maduro is removed from his current post?

When it comes to starters, Russia owns a cyber-presence at the Naval Base Antonio Diaz “Bandi” in La Orchilla, is an island north of Caracas, however, China also holds a satellite tracking capability at the Capitán Manuel Rios Air Base in Guárico.

Humire also explained, “This adds space and cyberspace capabilities that the Maduro regime does not have,” adding for China and Russia, “Pressuring the U.S. via Venezuela adds leverage to their regional ambitions in Ukraine and Eastern/Central Europe (for Russia) and Taiwan and South China Sea (for China).”

In addition, Beijing and Moscow have given a loan a total of more $120 billion to Venezuela and if United States regime remains successful to remove Maduro leadership, in case China and Russia have to face a huge loss that may hit their budgets badly.

Moscow has a strong relationship with Venezuela since the supremacy of Hugo Chavez, that still continues, although Venezuela has been one of the small numbers of in the international community to support Russian association in Ukraine and Syria.
