MOSCOW, June 26 (Itar-Tass) — Russia’s foreign ministry strongly recommends Russian citizens not to visit Paraguay until the situation in that country normalizes.
The Russian foreign ministry came out with this statement following recent developments in Paraguay, when the parliament voted to impeach President Fernando Lugo. After Lugo left his office, Vice President Federico Franco was sworn in as president. He will stay in office until elections in April 2013.
The majority of countries of the region have not recognized the new Paraguayan government and qualified what had happened there as coup d’etat.
