US Ready to Declare Venezuela Sponsor of International Terrorism - GRU

The United States is ready to declare Venezuela a sponsor of international terrorism, the head of Russia’s Main Intelligence Directorate (GRU) of the Russian General Staff, Igor Kostyukov, said Thursday.

“Washington is basically ready to declare the leadership of Venezuela “a sponsor of international terrorism” and use force or sanctions against Caracas based on this,” Kostyukov said.

 The GRU head went on to say that the United States was considering various variants for overthrowing the Venezuelan government and might organise the interference via its allies, possibly Colombia. Though, as he noted, the US plan to have a swift campaign in Venezuela fell through.
