Russia, Venezuela to hold naval drills in Caribbean

The navies of Russia and Venezuela are planning to hold joint military drills in the southern part of the Caribbean Sea, near US territorial waters.


Interfax-AVN news agency quoted an unnamed military-diplomatic source as saying on Thursday, the military exercise is scheduled to take place in the second half of the year and will involve a unit of Russia’s Northern Fleet ships and Venezuela's Air Force planes.

Russia’s missile carrying nuclear cruiser, Peter the Great, as well as support vessels will take part in the military maneuvers, the source said.

The military maneuvers mark the second time that a Russian fleet will be in the area since the end of the Cold War.
