Hundreds of Russian Mercenaries Now in Venezuela, US Admiral Says | Israel National News

Hundreds of Russian mercenaries are in Venezuela to prop up the “illegitimate regime” of President Nicolas Maduro, who has announced his intention to go to North Korea to break out of the isolation imposed by the U.S. and its allies, Adm. Craig Faller, head of U.S. Southern Command, said Friday.

“Russia, China and Iran — they’re there, they’re present, and they’re working for their national interests in ways that are counter to long-term stability of the region,” Faller said. “Russia, I’m convinced, is out to make the United States look bad [in South America] at every turn of the corner.”
