To the question: “Who was the most affected by these measures”, 84% of respondents affirmed that to all the Venezuelan nationals, meanwhile, a 15% said that to the Government and functionaries. 

Other data expresses that 83 % of the South American nation people do not want a military intervention to force President Nicolas Maduro to leave the presidency. Instead, 75% consider the dialogue as the resource to find concord between the Venezuelan government and the opposition. Only 16 percent of the respondents affirmed to agree on Trump’s administration approach on both nations’ relationships.

The Hinteracles questionnaire was applied to a total of 1580  Venezuelan families, by direct interviews, in a context marked by the hardening of U.S. sanctions against Venezuela, especially early February with the measures against Conviasa airline. 


The poll results are also in coherence with the Bolivarian government announcement to the International Criminal Court because of the injuries of the U.S. government impositions to Venezuelan people.  On his part, the Venezuelan chancellor Jorge Arreaza recently qualified these measures as massive destruction weapons.
