‘Pure Fascism’: Venezuelan President on attacks on Russian culture

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro called attacks on Russian culture and Russian athletes pure Fascism on Tuesday. His address was broadcast by the Venezolana de Television channel.

“This is pure Fascism,” Maduro commented on remarks by Venezuelan legislator Tania Diaz who said that Russia became a victim of “global censorship” while its “culture and sports are under attack.”

The Venezuelan president spoke within the framework of an international summit on fighting Fascism organized by the country’s authorities marking the 20th anniversary of a coup attempt directed against Venezuela’s then President Hugo Chavez.
