Venezuela in Crisis 
11 | February | 2019

After Juan Guaidó, President of the National Assembly declared himselve interim President following mass demonstrations against the Presidency of Nicolás Maduro on January 23rd, the military declared support to Maduro’s regime. Although several countries have readily acknowledged the legitimacy of Guaidó, the country is deeply divided and the international community seeks a solution to the crisis to avoid the escalation of violence in Venezuela.
