According to the Russian Ambassador to Venezuela Sergey Melik-Bagdasarov, the youth wing of the United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV) and National Assembly lawmakers have organized an action of solidarity with Russia in Caracas.
In February, Venezuela affirmed its support for Russia amid the Ukrainian crisis, during Russian Deputy Prime Minister Yuri Borisov's visit to Venezuela.
The Russian Ambassador stated on Saturday that the event coincides with the opening of a new sports facility, adding that "at a time when Russian athletes, including Paralympic athletes, are being aggressively attacked by the West with its ‘cancellation’ policy, the Venezuelan people are decorating their sports venues with signs of solidarity with the Russian people and government. This unites us, makes our friendship and solidarity in the face of a common threat to peace and the sovereignty of independent states even stronger."
