This post first appeared on Russia Insider

Venezuela has faded from the news since Guaido's [read: the US'] failed coup.

But although Venezuela is out of the limelight, Russia has not forgotten her ally...


Russian companies will expand their presence in Venezuela, said the Russian Deputy Foreign Minister, Sergei Ryabkov, following his meeting with the Vice President of Venezuela, Delcy Rodríguez. We're talking about trading, engineering, pharmaceuticals, and mining. The meeting came in the framework of the ministerial meeting of the Coordination Bureau of the Non-Aligned Movement.

Ryabkov also met with Venezuelan President, Nicolás Maduro. He described the talks as "positive." He stressed that Russia considered the incumbent government as the only legitimate and supported Venezuela's right for non-interference in its domestic affairs.

Sergei Ryabkov, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister: "Russia and the Non-Aligned Movement share the view that, given the cultural and civilizational variety in the modern world, every state has the right to choose independently the way of its development according to its goals and principles."
