Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro traveled to Russia to conduct bilateral negotiations with the leader of this country Vladimir Putin. Maduro informed about his overseas visit on Twitter.

"Today I’m going to the Russian Federation," Maduro wrote on September 23 in his microblog.

According to him, during the meeting, he and Putin should discuss the whole dynamics of bilateral relations. In addition, the heads of the Venezuelan and Russian states intend to look for new ways to enhance cooperation and intercultural exchange in the framework of the multipolar world formation.

In April, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo criticized Russia for its attempts to interfere in the internal affairs of Venezuela. In his opinion, it is thanks to the support of countries such as Russia and China that Maduro still remains in power.

In May 2018, the election of the head of state took place in Venezuela. According to the country's Central Election Commission, the incumbent president Maduro won, gaining about 70% of the vote, but the opposition boycotted the election.

In January, amid mass protests against Maduro, President of the Venezuelan National Assembly, Juan Guaido, declared himself interim president of the country.

Most countries of the European Union, the USA, Canada, Australia and part of the countries of Latin America recognized Guaido as interim president of Venezuela.

In particular, on March 28, the European Parliament approved a resolution that fully recognizes the Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaido as the country's interim president.

Countries such as Russia, China, and Cuba support incumbent President Maduro.

At the same time, the USA is considering ways to finance the activities of Venezuelan opposition leader Guaido.
