Guyana Guardian – Saying that it firmly backs Venezuelan President Nicholas Maduro, Russia has sent two nuclear bomber aircraft to the Spanish speaking country; – an act that the United States has so far fail to comment on.

It is believed that the Guyana government (up to press time) was totally unaware of the presence of nuclear bombers in Venezuela. Guyana’s President David Granger is currently out of the country receiving treatment for cancer, suggesting that the move by Russia to deploy nuclear-capable weapons in Venezuela and expressing its support for Venezuela at a time like this to be totaly unethical and bad for diplomacy.

Russia’s Minister of Defense Sergei Shoigun had explained that Russia will send more military aircraft and warships to Venezuela in the coming weeks.
