The United States Embassy in Venezuela, which operates in Colombia’s capital Bogota, said in a statement that the socialist regime of dictator Nicolas Maduro is to be blamed for the widespread crisis that the country has been experiencing over the last few years. 

The embassy also pointed out that the economic sanctions imposed by US President Donald Trump haven’t played a role in this situation as there are no sanctions on restrictions on the importation of food and medicines.

“There are no sanctions or restrictions on the importation of food and medicines to Venezuela while the Maduro regime uses its revenues to buy Russian weapons instead of food. The United States is the single largest donor of humanitarian assistance for the Venezuela regional crisis and has contributed more than US$1.2 billion to the cause since 2017 alone, including more than US$11 million to support Trinidad and Tobago’s efforts in helping Venezuelans living in the country,” the embassy said in the statement.
