President Jair Bolsonaro participated this Saturday morning (17th) in the ceremony of handing over Swords to the cadets of the Military Academy of Agulhas Negras (Aman), in Resende (RJ).

“Today, we are witnessing a country further north, where its Armed Forces have decided to take another path. Freedom, that people, our brother, has lost. Further south, another country, seems to want to take another path. I ask God that is wrong. I ask God to save our brothers further south “.

Bolsonaro did not say which countries he was referring to, but repeatedly criticizes the governments of Venezuela, which is in the north of Brazil, and Argentina, in the south.

The number of guests was restricted to four guests per cadet and the traditional Espadim gala was not held.
