Russian Federation has moved to Venezuela two strategic bombers

Russia sends bombers to Venezuela, calls U.S. reaction

Russian Federation sent the two Tu-160 strategic bombers on the 10,000km trip to land at Simón Bolívar International Airport on Monday in a show of support for the government of President Nicolas Maduro, which has repeatedly expressed concerns that the United States is trying to topple it.

Two Tupolev Tu-160 bombers arrived in Caracas on Monday, along with an Antonov An-124 military transport aircraft and an Ilyushin Il-62 long-haul plane. Mr Pompeo said the show of support for socialist President Nicolás Maduro was "two corrupt governments squandering public resources".

Spokesman Dmitry Peskov said the USA has no business criticizing the money being spent on the drills, saying just half of the US defense budget could feed all of Africa.

"It's not really appropriate for a country half of whose defense budget could feed the whole of Africa to be making such statements", spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters.

There's some question about whether the British band will shrug its collective shoulder at its induction. Asked by Rolling Stone about Willis, Joe Elliott said: "I haven't seen Pete in 14 years".

Venezuela and Russia have always been close allies and the arrival of the planes came just days after Maduro met Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow. Russian Federation has upgraded its Tu-160 fleet with new weapons and electronics and plans to produce a modernized version of the bomber.

"Contrast this with Russian Federation, whose approach to the man-made disaster in Venezuela is to send bomber aircraft instead of humanitarian assistance", Manning said. Last week, Moscow and Caracas reportedly signed investment contracts worth billions of dollars during Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro's three-day visit to Russian Federation.

"The flight lasted for about 10 hours", the press service said. The U.S. has accused Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro of undermining democratic institutions amid the country's growing political and economic crisis.

Russian Federation sent about 100 pilots and other personnel along with two Tupolev-160 bombers and two other aircraft to Caracas - generating tensions with the United States and Colombia, countries Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro regularly accuses of plotting to assassinate him.
