Venezuelan Vice President Delcy Rodriguez and the head of Venezuela’s state oil company PDVSA arrived in Russian capital Moscow to “deepen strategic alliances,” with the government of President Vladimir Putin.

Venezuelan Vice President Delcy Rodriguez and the head of Venezuela’s state oil company PDVSA arrived in Russian capital Moscow to “deepen strategic alliances,” with the government of President Vladimir Putin.

“(Rodriguez) will meet with senior Russian officials to keep deepening strategic alliances between the two countries in the context of the anti-blockade law,” Venezuela’s Information Ministry said in a Friday morning statement.

The ministry also pointed out that the socialist regime of dictator Nicolas Maduro is currently participating in a clinical trial of the Russian-developed Sputnik V vaccine for the novel coronavirus. 

Venezuelan Science Minister Gabriela Jimenez accompanied Rodriguez and PDVSA Chief Executive Asdrubal Chavez on the trip to Moscow.

Russia has been one of the top commercial of the Venezuelan regime since the Trump administration sanctioned PDVSA in 2019 as part of its bid to oust Maduro, who remains in power despite a sharp drop in Venezuela’s crude exports, thanks to backing from the military and allies like Russia, China, Iran and Cuba.
