The United Nations Interagency Coordination Platform (R4V) confirmed that the number of Venezuelan migrants and refugees in the world exceeded 6 million people.
These citizens have had to leave everything and leave their country, pushed by the humanitarian crisis caused by Nicolás Maduro’s criminal dictatorship, as part of a policy of social control.
By September 5th, 6,024,351 migrants and refugees were reported throughout the world, which is equivalent to approximately 20% of the total population.
Likewise, they specified that 4,978,078 Venezuelans are located in Latin American and Caribbean countries.
Furthermore, Colombia is the nation that has welcomed the largest number of Venezuelan migrants and refugees with more than 2 million, followed by Peru with more than one million, and Chile and Ecuador with more than 450 thousand each.
The Commissioner of the Organization of American States (OAS) for the Crisis of Venezuelan Migrants and Refugees, David Smolansky, warned this Wednesday that as long as Maduro’s dictatorship remains in power, this phenomenon will not stop.
“Maduro cynically asks the exiled Venezuelans to return when what is about to happen is the opposite and there will be more Venezuelan refugees than Syrians in a few months,” he said.
