Venezuela condemns coup in Ukraine
Venezuela had analyzed the course of events in Ukraine in connection with the coup and condemned actions of neo-Nazi groups against the country's civilian population, Venezuelan Foreign Minister Elias Jaua said on Thursday after talks with Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov.
The Venezuelan minister expressed gratitude for Russia's support for third countries that face threats from the outside to overthrow their governments.
“We discussed the situation in Ukraine and stressed the need to stop using the army against the population, to cease violence and launch a nationwide dialogue for ensuring the rights of citizens and Ukraine’s regions,” Lavrov said.

Jaua said, “It is necessary to strengthen Russian-Venezuelan partnership that will foment peace and the peaceful coexistence."
