Peskov said the lack of contacts between Russia and the United States on the situation in Venezuela
A spokesman for the Russian president, Dmitry Peskov, said that the Russian side is not making contacts with the United States in connection with what is happening in Venezuela.
“No, they are not being taken at the moment,” he said, answering the question whether contacts are being made with the United States on this situation.
At the same time, he added that it would be better to contact the Russian Foreign Ministry about information on possible plans to intensify such contacts.
"Now, some activity in the UN Security Council on this issue is being carried out, so we need to address these issues to our diplomatic department," he added.
Earlier, Peskov said that the Russian side considers the situation with attempts to usurp power in Venezuela to be unacceptable.
In recent days, anti-government marches are held in Venezuela, as well as demonstrations by supporters of the head of state, Nicolas Maduro. According to updated data, 16 people died as a result of the demonstrations.
Against the background of these unrest, the speaker of the Venezuelan Parliament, Juan Guaido, declared himself the interim head of state.
US authorities supported the Guaido and urged Maduro to transfer power to him.
