Venezuela says Russian planes are landing for military cooperation

A Venezuelan official says Russian planes have arrived in Caracas over the weekend as part of ongoing military cooperation between the two allies.

The official said Sunday that Russian military officials are visiting to discuss the maintenance and training of the equipment, as well as the strategy. The official spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the matter.

Flightradar24, a flight detection station, showed on Saturday the flight path of a Russian Air Force plane that apparently flew to Caracas as it flew through the Caribbean.

Javier Mayorca, a Venezuelan journalist, tweeted that a Russian cargo plane with military equipment had arrived in Caracas on Saturday.

The reports could not be confirmed independently.

Russia supports Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro, who has rejected demands from the United States and dozens of other countries.
