"We will return to the streets.to demand the entry of humanitarian aid that will save the lives of more than 300,000 Venezuelans that today are at risk of dying", Guaido wrote.

Humanitarian aid has become a key factor in the power struggle between Guaido, who last month proclaimed himself acting president, and Maduro. The government has been trying to adequately resupply those items.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov told U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in a telephone call on Tuesday evening that Washington should avoid any interference, including military, in Venezuela's internal affairs. "This is a crime against humanity, men of the armed forces", Juan Guaido said.

Venezuela is in the midst of a disastrous economic crisis marked by hyperinflation, recession and shortages of basic necessities such as food and medicines.

The United Nations has called for serious political negotiations between the two sides to prevent a slide toward more violence in the South American country.

"Time is running out for Nicolas Maduro, a government that has no future, no ideas and no support in the population", Guaido said, adding that Maduro faces "a movement that is growing, and we will not retreat and postpone a process that is inevitable". Along with U.S. President Donald Trump, numerous Latin American and European nations have recognised Guaido as interim president and backed his calls for a new, free election.

"It's not help and it's not humanitarian", he said to cheers from roughly 1,000 Maduro supporters, including civilians and soldiers. Aside from that, the White House also promised $20 million in "humanitarian aid" to the fledgling government of Juan Guaido, the self-proclaimed interim president of Venezuela.

But Defense Minister Vladimir Padrino announced that the armed forces were deploying a "reinforced presence all along the border".

In their attempts to block the entry of aid, Venezuelan soldiers positioned tankers on the Tienditas worldwide bridge connecting Venezuela with Colombia, making it impossible for supplies to reach those within the country: Dr. Jose Luis Mateo, a member of the NGO United Doctors, told Efecto Cocuyo, a local opposition outlet, that the Maduro regime is blocking the entry of aid so they can continue to exercise control over the most vulnerable.

Guaido warned that the military would be held responsible for the deaths of protesters.

Guaido on Monday dismissed the possibility of a civil war in Venezuela, claiming Maduro could not count on the army and "90 per cent of the people want change".

Speaking to AFP last week, Guaido refused to rule out asking for foreign intervention. Let it come, the convoy of money, it's our money.

Two weeks ago, the regime-loyalist Supreme Court barred him from leaving the country and froze his assets.

The latter signaled he is ready to have a face-to-face with his opponents in case they needed to be heard by the government, but the opposition chose to neglect the offer, "probably because they are guided by the US", Sergey Lavrov commented on Tuesday.

"We would like to make formal your knowledge of new banking instructions to make payments in USA dollars or euros", wrote PDVSA's finance vice president, Fernando De Quintal, in a letter dated February 8 to the PDVSA unit that supervises its joint ventures.
