WASHINGTON, United States (AFP) — The United States will impose sanctions on foreign institutions helping to finance embattled far-left Venezuelan leader Nicolas Maduro, the White House said Wednesday.
There’s no denying that a serious economic and humanitarian crisis faces Venezuela. Millions of citizens have left the country, and those who have remained have lost considerable weight and have inadequate access to food and medicine. Hyperinflation continues unabated, and, with the Trump administration recently leveling sanctions against the Venezuelan state oil company (PDVSA), the crisis is only intensifying.
Economic sanctions, attempt to suspend Venezuela from the Organization of American States (OAS) and threats, marked the escalation of attacks that led the United States (USA) against the homeland of Bolivar one month after the victory of Nicolas Maduro in the presidential elections from May 20th.
