MOSCOW, March 15. /TASS/. Moscow believes that an act of Western sabotage was the reason behind the recent large-scale power outage in Venezuela, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said at a briefing on Friday.

According to her, it was a serious trouble, which claimed the lives of many Venezuelan people. “It was caused by an act of sabotage,” the Russian diplomat stressed. “According to the country’s legitimate government headed by President Maduro, as well as to information from other credible sources, Venezuela’s power grid was attacked from abroad,” Zakharova noted.
