The Council meeting was also attended by President of the Russian Academy of Sciences Yuri Osipov, President of the Russian Kurchatov Institute Scientific Center Yevgeni Velikhov and other prominent Council academicians, Secretary of the Russian Security Council Vladimir Rushailo, President of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry and member of the Russian Academy of Sciences Yevgeni Primakov, Vice Premier Alexei Kudrin, Russian Minister of Economic Development and Trade German Gref, Minister of Industry, Science and Technology Ilya Klebanov and Nuclear Energy Minister Alexander Rumyantsev.

More than 5.8 million people voted for Nicholas Maduro at the presidential election in Venezuela. This is more than a quarter of registered voters. Why did those people vote for the man, who, as Western media write, took Venezuela to the brink of collapse?

Venezuela may expect another Panama scenario from 1989
