“As for Russian military bases, this is obvious.

To do this, it is enough to look into the Constitution of Venezuela, where it is directly stated that there should not and cannot be military bases on the territory, ”he said.

At the same time, he noted that Russian military specialists continue to work in Venezuela, increasing the defense capability of the republic. 

He also noted that Caracas could provide military-technical assistance to Moscow in the event of a sharp deterioration in relations between Russia and the United States.

Earlier, Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that the issue of deploying Russian military bases in Venezuela was not raised during a telephone conversation between Russian and Venezuelan Presidents Vladimir Putin and Nicolas Maduro.
