In the Russian capital, the Venezuelan president intends to meet with Putin and hold talks with Russian companies.
Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro arrives in Moscow on Tuesday, September 24. He reported this on Twitter.
“We have come to the Russian homeland in order to strengthen our historical and extremely positive relations and respect between our peoples. The Brotherhood that we have created over the years is a fundamental basis for creating a prosperous future for Venezuela,” he wrote. Maduro plans to meet with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin and hold talks with the leading Russian companies.
Earlier, Maduro said that he would not go to the UN General Assembly this year, which is now taking place in New York.
Recall that Venezuela has been experiencing an economic crisis in recent years. The UN estimates that more than four million people have already fled the country.
