Blog 2: Russia

This blog is about an article put out by BBC News involving financial ties with Venezuela and Russia.

"Russia to boost Venezuela ties amid US pressure"

Throughout this short article, it talks about the increased financial ties between Russia and Venezuela. The increased relationship between these two countries can be seen as controversial because this agreement was done by Venezuelan President Maduro, not interim president Juan Guaido, who has full U.S. support, which is contrary to Maduro. This article has a human geography aspect because this move could increase conflict between Russia and the U.S. At this point, there's no idea how any of these 3 countries involved will react.
