Russian soldiers wear Venezuelan uniforms

Russian military personnel are seen wearing the Venezuelan uniform in Caracas and on the border with Colombia, according to reports.

This practice is not permitted, according to military sources cited in the media.

Although they point out that, there is no legislation to prevent this from happening in Venezuela.

Recently it was reported that about 80 Russians arrived at the Ricaurte de Rubio Battalion in the state of Táchira on the border with Colombia.

According to several witnesses, a few days later Russians and Cubans wearing the Venezuelan uniform carry out military actions in the border municipality of Pedro Maria Ureña, resulting in several deaths.

Guatemala declares state of siege after murder of 3 soldiers

The Guatemalan Congress declares a state of siege in the northwest of the country after the assassination of three soldiers by suspected drug dealers.

The Guatemalan government is hoping to regain control of the area.

The decree that was finally approved on Saturday with 88 votes in favor and 9 against, will limit constitutional guarantees for the inhabitants of 22 municipalities in the region.

The measure will run for 30 days in the area between Honduras and Mexico called the "drug trafficking corridor," where the army will be able to detain and interrogate suspects.

President Jimmy Morales decreed the measure days ago, after criminals ambushed navy personnel trying to intercept a drug-laden aircraft.

Cuba detains dozens of political activists

The Cuban communist regime has detained dozens of opposition leaders over the weekend.

The second round of arrests took place on Sunday, after the Cuban Patriotic Union condemned on Saturday the disappearance of at least 40 activists.

The U.S. Embassy in Cuba has reacted by demanding the immediate release of all political prisoners.

On Saturday, Mara Tekach, U.S. business advisor in Cuba, had a conversation with one of the opposition leaders now detained, José Daniel Ferrer.

During the meeting, Ferrer pointed to an increase in Diaz-Canel's attacks on freedom of speech, assembly, religion, and the press.

The new wave of repression takes place while Federica Mogherini, High Representative of the European Union, maintains a dialogue of cooperation with the Cuban regime in Havana.

Mexico has reduced illegal immigration

Mexico claims to have reduced the flow of illegal immigrants by less than half with the new strategy.

Mexico's Minister of Foreign Affairs Marcelo Ebrard says the country has managed to reduce the figure by 56 percent in three months.

He argues that in the light of the data there will be no need to worry about the increase in U.S. tariffs.

Mexico pledged on June 7 this year to control the flow of illegal immigrants through the country in order to avoid a trade conflict with the United States.

Now, Mexico is expecting the United States to resume its $5.8 billion investment in the country, as the U.S. has decided to suspend the trade deal pending Mexico's compliance with the agreement.
