The United Nations Security Council is set to meet later on Saturday to discuss the power struggle gripping Venezuela.
The United States is likely to push the council to back opposition leader Juan Guaido, who has declared himself as interim president.
But any such move will be blocked by Russia, which backs the incumbent, Nicolas Maduro. Inside Venezuela, the two men continue to rally supporters.
