“Lula, who has already met heads of state from 31 countries of the most varied political regimes, is right: there are a lot of prejudices against Venezuela,” said the president of the PT
247 – The deputy Gleisi Hoffmann, national president of the PT, defended this Monday (29) the restoration of relations between Brazil and Venezuela. On Twitter, Gleisi recalled the solidarity of the government of Nicolás Maduro with the people of Manaus during the pandemic, in addition to the hundreds of sanctions to which the country is subject by the United States and its allies.
“Venezuela is a great country. They showed their solidarity with us when Bolsonaro refused oxygen to hospitals in Manaus. They want to resume South American trade and integration. ‘President’ Guaidó, acknowledged the process election and will run for government in 2024. Lula, who has already met heads of state from 31 countries with the most varied political regimes, is right: there are a lot of prejudices against Venezuela,” said Gleisi Hoffmann.

Venezuela is subject to various economic sanctions imposed by different countries and international organizations. The main penalties and restrictions include:
United States: The United States imposed significant sanctions on the Venezuelan oil sector in 2019, restricting oil-related financial and commercial transactions. In addition, several Venezuelan government figures and entities face sanctions, such as travel restrictions and asset freezes.
European Union: The European Union has imposed restrictions on Venezuela, including an arms embargo and a ban on the supply of equipment that can be used for internal repression. In addition, some Venezuelan government figures are subject to travel restrictions and asset freezes.
Canada: Canada has implemented economic sanctions against Venezuela involving financial and trade restrictions. Canadian sanctions primarily target individuals and entities implicated in human rights abuses and corruption.
These economic sanctions have had a significant impact on the Venezuelan economy, affecting key sectors such as oil, resulting in reduced exports and access to international markets. They have contributed to the country’s economic crisis, with shortages of food and medicine, hyperinflation and increased poverty. It is important to note that the sanctions are the subject of debate, with differing opinions as to their effectiveness and their impact on the Venezuelan population.
