    The opposition leader of Venezuela Juan Guaidó on Wednesday, 27, he thanked the president of the Brazil, Jair Bolsonaro (no party), for the operation of the Brazilian Army to receive about 260 thousand Venezuelan migrants who crossed the border into Brazilian territory. “In Brazil there are about 260,000 Venezuelan migrants and refugees who fled the hunger and misery caused by the dictatorship. The Operation Welcome of the government of President Jair Bolsonaro seeks to address this situation. Thank you for supporting our people and for finding solutions,” wrote Guaidó on Twitter. The politician declares himself as president of Venezuela for being the president of the country’s National Assembly, and is recognized as a legitimate Venezuelan representative by Brazil, the United States, the European Union and other nations.

    On Tuesday, 27, Bolsonaro visited Operation Welcome, as the mobilization carried out to receive Venezuelan refugees in Roraima is called. In a live broadcast on Facebook, the Brazilian president was in tents used as shelters and service stations and showed children sleeping on mattresses on the floor. When speaking, he took the opportunity to criticize Nicolás Maduro, the Venezuelan president, and Lula. “What we want to show is that we don’t want this for our country. For our greater good, we need to see our freedom. Wrong choices lead to this. It’s those people from the Forum of São Paulo, always deceiving the people, inducing people to go to the left, associating themselves with socialism. The Brazilian president of the past was going to Venezuela to campaign with Chávez, Maduro”, declared Bolsonaro.
