In an exclusive interview with FRANCE 24, Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaido described Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro as a dictator and said that he was presiding over a catastrophic humanitarian situation.


Guaido proclaimed himself Venezuela's interim president on January 23, arguing that Maduro’s presidency was illegitimate.

Guaido also explained that, with astronomical inflation and shortages of basic goods, Venezuelans no longer have gas and therefore have to cook with wood. That’s while more than 260 people have been killed during demonstrations, according to Guaido.
