Donald Trump, Vladimir Putin, Nicolas Maduro - Russia, USA , Venezuela

Russia’s support for Venezuela’s embattled President Nicolas Maduro has become the latest flashpoint in deteriorating relations between the United States and Russia, moving to the top of a list of long-simmering spats between the Cold War foes.

As the dispute intensifies with both sides trading accusations and entrenched in diametrically opposed positions from which they are unwilling to retreat, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo plans to meet Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov next week in Finland to discuss the matter.

A senior State Department official said Pompeo would use the opportunity of being at the same meeting of Arctic Council with Lavrov to express U.S. “concerns about Russian behavior.” ”That includes Ukraine and certainly Venezuela,” said the official, who was not authorized to discuss the meeting publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity.
