Brasilia reports damage after Sunday's assault

As Brazil counts the damage and searches for those responsible, leaders from around the world have repudiated the assault on Brazilian government headquarters.

In a joint statement from the three countries, U.S. President Joe Biden, Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador Obrador, and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau condemned Sunday's "attacks on Brazil's democracy."

"Canada, Mexico and the United States condemn the January 8 attacks on Brazil's democracy and the peaceful transfer of power. We stand with Brazil as it safeguards its democratic institutions," the statement said.

Also South American leaders, such as Gabriel Boric of Chile, Gustavo Petro of Colombia, Alberto Fernandez of Argentina and Luis Abinader of the Dominican Republic. Guillermo Lasso of Ecuador and Dina Boluarte of Peru also joined the condemnation.

In addition, China and Russia. China "firmly opposes the violent attack" against the seats of power in Brazil, said foreign ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin, stressing that Beijing "supports the measures taken by the Brazilian government to calm the situation, restore social order and preserve national stability."

"We condemn in the strongest terms the actions of riot instigators and fully support Brazilian President Lula da Silva," Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters. Russia affirmed that it "fully supports" the current leader, Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva.

In Europe, the leaders of Germany, France, Italy and Spain also rejected the action of the Bolsonaristas.
