Venezuelan security police intercepted two suspected Russian secret agents at Caracas' Maiquetia Airport a fortnight ago, and later deported them. Last week, after a bitter exchange of protests, Venezuela announced that it had broken off relations with Russia and recalled its chargé d'affairs from Moscow. In Latin America, only Argentina, Uruguay and Mexico still maintain diplomatic relations with the Soviet Union.
