The former Chief of Staff under the government of President Carlos Andrés Pérez, Iván Carratú Molina, fears that the National Armed Forces as an institution tend to disappear as militias steadily grow.

"In Venezuela, the militias are on the rise. They are indoctrinated civilians, like in Cuba, with eight million militia members," Carratú Molina said in a videochat hosted by El Universal with journalist Roberto Giusti.

The Admiral lamented that 14 military classes have graduated "under (President Hugo) Chávez's ideology." Nevertheless, he is positive of the existence of "annoyed, very disappointed military officers."

"The army is super divided, atomized and controlled," he stressed, adding that "the military are another piece of the continental and national leftwing."
