OPinon - Are the neocons back in Washington?

3. Russia will not confront the U.S. over Venezuela

Moscow is the most powerful supporter of Maduro. Putin does not hide
his solidarity with Maduro, conducting joint military exercises and
selling Russian weapons to the Venezuelan military. Some pundits worry
that, with the suspension of the INF treaty, a new U.S.-Russia cold
war may break out over Venezuela. Venezuela, however, is no Syria.
Caracas is too far away from Moscow and Russia has no dependable
allies, like Iran and Hezbollah, in South America. Putin’s priority
has been and will continue to be to lift the economic sanctions
against Russia that were imposed following its annexation of Crimea in
2014.
