Russia warns U.S. against meddling in Venezuela crisis

Russia has warned United States against further interfering in Venezuela's domestic affairs and stirring up speculations about Russia conducting military operations in the country.

In a statement, Russian Foreign Ministry's spokeswoman Maria Zakharova urged United States to stop threatening Venezuela and pushing it towards civil war which is in open violation of international law.

She reiterated that Russia is not intentionally building up its military presence in Venezuela, despite such accusations by the West including Washington.

Zakharova said Russia will make efforts to facilitate a dialogue between Venezuelan government and the opposition.
