Arrest warrant against Evo Morales imminent

The interim president of Bolivia, Jeanine Añez, announced on Saturday an arrest warrant is imminent for former president Evo Morales.

The president told the press after he was pressed by the armed forces, "He can return whenever he wants, he left because he wanted," "surely in the next few days this arrest warrant will be issued because we have already made the complaints" before the Justice.

Morales, who is being investigated for the crimes of sedition and terrorism, is in Argentina, as a refugee, after passing through Mexico and Cuba.

It is estimated that Morales will settle in a city near the border with Bolivia.

From there he is expected to operate his party's campaign for the next general elections, still undated.

Russian soldiers in Venezuela

There are reports of Russian military personnel installing equipment and drones in strategic areas in Venezuela.

A witness who asked not to be identified told Infobae media that 15 Russians were at Canaima National Park on Saturday Dec. 14, where they used drones. 

All were wearing Venezuelan Army uniforms and some spoke perfect Spanish.

This had been first sighted in August 2019, at the border in Rubio in Táchira State, where the Russians flew drones and stationed other equipment.

There has been no explanation by the National Executive or the Military High Command for what would be an obvious interference by a foreign army in Venezuelan territory.
