ST. GEORGE-   GOVERNMENT INFORMATION SERVICE --AUGUST 9TH 2018: The August 4 attack that endangered the lives of the leadership of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela including President Nicolás Maduro, while addressing a gathering marking the 81st anniversary of the Bolivarian National Guard, signals a dangerous and unacceptable new level to the political situation in the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela.
