On February 27, an anonymous source told Interfax that Venezuelan Vice President Delcy Rodríguez may land in Moscow for an official visit by the end of this week. The previous week, Venezuela’s Deputy Foreign Minister Ivan Gil said that visits are a regular component of Russian-Venezuelan relations in the latter country’s current crisis and said Rodríguez may visit Moscow very soon.

Kremlin Press Secretary Dmitry Peskov responded to the news by announcing that no meetings between Rodríguez and Russian President Vladimir Putin are planned for the Kremlin’s schedule in the coming days, but he did not comment on the possibility that the Venezuelan vice president may visit the Russian capital.
