Dmitry Peskov answered in the negative to the question whether Vladimir Putin and President Nicolas Maduro discussed the possibility of creating Russian military bases.
“No, this issue was not specifically touched upon or raised,” he said.
Peskov noted that the interaction between Russia and Venezuela as a whole is of a very multifaceted and partnership nature. At the talks, according to him, “the most diverse points of this interaction” were discussed.
Earlier, political scientists suggested that Russia's response to NATO expansion in the face of aggravated relations with the United States could be the deployment of military bases in Venezuela and even in Cuba .
