Love how the attempt to overthrow a democratically elected government by pretending that a very limited and constricted clause in the constitution is unlimited and has no constrictions and conditions on its use is somehow 'transitioning Venezuela to democracy by constitutional means'.

It is rather like pretending that the outright theft of billions from the people of Venezuela by the American government isn't causing hardships and pressuring the Venezuelan people to submit to being ruled by whoever Washington selects as its straw boss.

Russia, which has supplied fighter jets, tanks, and air defense systems to Venezuela, has dismissed U.S. criticism of its military cooperation with Caracas saying it is not interfering in the Latin American country's internal affairs and poses no threat to regional stability.

Russia, which is supplying weapons and soldier/advisors to Venezuela, is warning other countries from intervening in Russia's intervention.

Yes, except that Russia is acting in support of a legally democratically elected government at the behest of said government, while Colombia is supporting a self-proclaimed "interim president" with no mandate.

There is a difference, even if you fail to see it.

Russia is acting in support of it's own political, and financial, interests. And Russia is interfering in a civil war.
