Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro attended a parade of the Armed Forces and the Bolivarian National Militia at Fort Tiuna, the main military base in Caracas, on Friday. Standing alongside ministers and generals, Maduro gave a speech to the assembled troops: «Who chooses the president? The elites or the people? Who chooses the president? The 'gringos' or Venezuelans?» The event commemorated... Еще the 16th anniversary of the recovery of democracy on April 13, 2002, after a failed coup d'état attempt against Maduro's predecessor Hugo Chavez.
