The Russian Government sent a clear message about Venezuelan political situation stemming from President Hugo Chávez's failure to take oath on January 10.

Russian authorities called for non-interference in Venezuela's political situation and full compliance with the Venezuelan Constitution, "which shall be construed only by the relevant legal bodies," the Russian Foreign Affairs Office said in a press statement.

"In this context, we take note of the ruling issued by the Constitutional Court, Supreme Tribunal of Justice, regarding the legitimacy of delaying President Hugo Chávez's swearing-in ceremony," the communiqué read.

The Russian Government also firmly rejected "any attempt to ‘correct' this understanding and exert influence from abroad in order to question the decision."

"It is pivotal not to allow destabilization in Venezuela. Political forces both inside and outside the country should take that into account. Russia calls upon those actors to take a serious and responsible stance," the document added.

Is protest over?

That political protest in Venezuela has lost momentum seems pretty obvious: people are no longer building barricades to block off streets near Plaza Francia in Altamira (eastern Caracas), an anti-government stronghold; no new images have been shown of brave and dashing protesters with bandanna-covered faces clashing with the National Guard in San Cristóbal, in the western state of Táchira; and those who dreamed of a horde of "Gochos" (Tachirans) descending  in an avalanche to stir up revolt in Caracas have been left with no option but to wake up to reality.
