"Maduro from power", Patrushev said.

Abrams, speaking on Tuesday ahead of a Security Council meeting on Venezuela sought by the United States, also told reporters that Washington would impose more sanctions on Caracas this week and next to bring additional pressure on the government of President Nicolas Maduro, whose legitimacy Washington has challenged.

Violent clashes between security forces and a US -backed opposition attempt on Saturday to bring aid into the economically devastated country left nearly 300 wounded and at least three protesters dead near the Brazilian border.

Pence announced new sanctions against Venezuelan officials for their role in blocking the so-called humanitarian aid from entering the country over the weekend, as the USA continues to ratchet up pressure on the government of President Nicolás Maduro.
