Venezuela's President Nicolas Maduro speaks during a press conference, where he warned the Lima Group that he would take energetic measures if they do not rectify their position on Venezuela in 48 hours, on the eve of assuming a new six-year mandate.

Bring in what are essentially paid mercenaries is an old and familiar tactic in collapsing corrupt governments. Beyond that how much of that 80 tons of gold went back to Moscow?
