Brazilian politics suffered a military crisis six months ago, the beginning of the struggle for the 2022 elections and the relentless effects of the pandemic. After a convulsive term, President Bolsonaro has run out of credit. Disagreements with him can be resolved only in two ways: resignation or dismissal. Such was the case of former Defense Minister Fernando Azevedo e Silva, a retired general whose moderation made him an uncomfortable figure in the government: he resigned from his portfolio in March under pressure from the presidency.

Bolsonaro appointed a closer general, Braga Neto, as the new minister in an effort to consolidate his influence over the military. However, the entire leadership resigned the next day in solidarity with Azevedo e Silva, setting off a military crisis unprecedented since the return of democracy to the country in 1985.
