The key to ending the agony lies in a much broader diplomatic effort. EU and Latin American nations have brokered talks between the government and opposition, but these have failed because Mr Maduro’s key backers — Cuba, Russia and China — are missing. All have significant economic interests in Venezuela and are suspicious of western-led regime change which could cost them their investments. Russia may have mischievous geopolitical designs of its own on Venezuela. But as long as Moscow, Beijing and Havana have nothing to gain from Mr Maduro leaving power, they will continue to back him. Broad international talks to negotiate Mr Maduro’s exit to a third country, installation of a respected interim president, equal treatment of all creditors and fresh elections are the way forward. This will not be popular with some in Washington. But the Venezuelan people’s suffering is rapidly worsening. The refugee outflow is straining neighbouring countries to the limit and risks destabilising parts of South America. Russian president Vladimir Putin suggested to this newspaper in July that Moscow’s interests in Venezuela were purely commercial and vowed that if Mr Guaidó won an election, the Kremlin would work with him. That pledge should be put to the test.
