The Venezuelan government does not plan to reduce cooperation with Russian companies but will, on the contrary, increase it despite the political crisis in the country, stated Venezuelan Vice President Delcy Rodríguez at a briefing with Russian media on Sunday.

"Yesterday I met with the representatives of Russian companies,” she said. “Not only are we are not going to reduce relations with them in any way, but we will expand the cooperation." 

"The President of Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro is not only a good friend of Russia and President Vladimir Putin, but also continues his policy of deepening our relations,” Rodríguez added. “We will develop and deepen it in the geopolitical sense and with regards to the creation of a new, multipolar world.”
