Until yesterday in Sumar they bumped into her. First on the quilt of The Pass and later confirmed by Sánchez himself after, twice, as Díaz has denounced, that they had requested info since April with out acquiring solutions. “No answer”, he has reproached himself.

The disaster dates again to Council of Ministers of April 16, when the rise in spending was authorized however with out telling Sumar that it was for Ukraine. It was by means of a credit score growth to strengthen army capabilities in protection.
