'Russians Will Pay a Price': US Mulls Response to Moscow Over Venezuela

Earlier, the White House criticised the arrival of Russian military aircraft in Caracas, with Vice President Mike Pence calling it an "unwelcome provocation". US President Donald Trump, in turn, demanded that Russia "get out" of Venezuela, while at the same time did not exclude the use of military force by the US in the country.

US Special Representative for Venezuela Elliott Abrams announced on 29 March that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo would soon come up with a response to last week's arrival of Russian military planes in Venezuela.

"We have a very nice options paper of the various things that can be done in US-Russia relations. There are a lot of things we can do in economic terms, in terms of sanctions. There is a lot of things that are on the list. So, The Russians will pay a price for this", he said.
