US Congressman Albin Siris accused Russia of trying to destabilize the situation in South America, including in Colombia.
“As for Venezuela, I am concerned that Russia seems to be increasingly involved in things in Venezuela… they are trying to destabilize the region,” Siris said.
According to him, in 2019, Moscow conducted six thousand people through Colombia. The country is “not exactly a beach destination” for Russia.
Siris stressed that Russia is using Venezuela to undermine the situation in Colombia and interfere in the elections in South America.
Secretary of State Anthony Blinken agreed with the congressman.
Earlier, the White House called the priority policy issues of the new US administration.
