Putin expresses support to Maduro in phone call

Russian President Vladimir Putin on Thursday called his Venezuelan counterpart Nicolas Maduro and expressed support, after several other nations recognized the self-declared Venezuelan leader Juan Guaido, Daily Sabah reported citing the Kremlin.

"The President of Russia expressed support for the legitimate authorities of Venezuela in the context of a domestic political crisis that has been provoked from the outside," it said.

In the call, Putin also said he supports a "peaceful dialogue" in Venezuela. The President also added that intervention in Venezuela's domestic affairs is a gross violation of international law.
