Russian Ambassador in Caracas Rejects Monroe Doctrine Revival
Friday, 19 April 2019 19:37 WIB | GLOBAL |Global

As Venezuela's reliance on Russia grows amid the country's unfolding crisis, Vladimir Putin's point man in Caracas is pushing back on the U.S. revival of a doctrine used for generations to justify military interventions in the region.

In a rare interview, Russian Ambassador Vladimir Zaemskiy rejected an assertion this week by U.S. National Security Adviser John Bolton that the 1823 Monroe Doctrine is "alive and well."

The policy, originally aimed at opposing any European meddling in the hemisphere, was used to justify U.S. military interventions in countries including Cuba, Nicaragua, the Dominican Republic and Grenada, but had been left for dead by recent U.S. administrations trying to turn the page on a dark past.

In an example of how the Cold Warlike rhetoric on all sides of Venezuela's crisis has quickly escalated, the ambassador compared hostile comments by Bolton, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Republican Sen. Marco Rubio to those of the al-Qaida leaders behind the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.
