Years of US sanctions have cost Venezuelan economy $130 billion – official

Over the last few years Venezuela has suffered enormous losses due to the economic blockade introduced by Washington, Venezuela’s ambassador to Russia Carlos Rafael Faria Tortosa says.

“As a result of the economic embargo imposed by the US from 2015 through the last year, financial damages to Venezuelan economy totaled $130 billion,” the top diplomat said during the news briefing in Moscow.

The ambassador stressed that the amount would be enough to bolster the economy of the Bolivarian republic for nine years.

“The government headed by President Nicolas Maduro is on the path of a very unequal conflict with the most forceful economic and military power in the world,” Tortosa stressed.
