Czech Republic recognises Juan Guaido despite EU doubts

Summary of Disinformation

The government of the Czech Republic recognises Juan Guaido, the self-proclaimed “president” of Venezuela, despite the doubts of EU member states about this move and the precedent it sets.


The Czech Republic's support for Juan Guaido was not a unilateral decision but rather a coordinated move with 10 other EU member states: Austria, Britain, Denmark, Estonia, France, Germany, Poland, Portugal, Spain, and Sweden. The move followed the expiration of an ultimatum for Nicolas Maduro to call a new election.

This is another example of pro-Kremlin disinformation about the ongoing crisis in Venezuela and the pro-Western opposition leader Juan Guaido.
