The decision affected “Russian propagandists” from the Sputnik, Ria Novosti and TASS news agencies, the Ukrainian-based pravda.com.ua website has reported.
Apart from the Russian news agencies, Venezuelan broadcaster Telesur was refused credentials as a "state propaganda outlet," the pravda.com.ua website said.
The Lima Group meeting, which ended in the Canadian capital Ottawa on Monday afternoon local time, supported Venezuela’s self-proclaimed interim president Juan Guaidó and called on the Venezuelan military to come to his side, pravda.com.ua reported.
The 14-nation Lima Group is a major bloc of countries that includes Canada, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Guyana, Honduras, Panama, Paraguay, Peru and Saint Lucia.
Poland on Monday recognised Guaidó as the interim president of Venezuela.
The move came after Venezuela’s socialist ruler Nicolás Maduro failed to call early presidential elections despite urging from the European Union of which Poland is part, the foreign ministry in Warsaw said in a statement.
Spain, France, Britain, Sweden, Portugal, Austria, Denmark, Latvia, Germany, the Netherlands and Lithuania were among other EU member states that recognised Guaidó as Venezuela’s interim president on Monday, Poland’s PAP news agency reported.
Guaidó leads Venezuela's opposition-controlled National Assembly. He declared himself the country's interim leader last month, dividing the international community and inspiring street protests against Maduro, who became president of the oil-rich nation in 2013.
