Pourtant la distance entre les deux villes européennes est plus courte que celle qui sépare les deux capitales latinas. Pour remédier à l’éloignement, la dite correspondance relève plus du commentaire élogieux des opinions de l’opposition à la Révolution bolivarienne. Mais ça, le lecteur du Monde n’en saura rien.
