MOSCOW, March 26 / TASS /. US National Security Adviser John Bolton urged Russia on Monday to join the global community to support the people of Venezuela.

"The United States sends food and medicine to help the people of Venezuela. Rather than sending nuclear-capable bombers and special forces to prop up a corrupt dictator, Russia should work with the international community to support the Venezuelan people," he wrote on Twitter.

Bolton added that "the United States will not tolerate hostile foreign military powers meddling with the Western Hemisphere’s shared goals of democracy, security, and the rule of law." "The Venezuelan military must stand with the people of Venezuela," he emphasized.

The El Comercio newspaper reported earlier that an Antonov An-124 and an Ilyushin Il-62 aircraft carrying Russian troops and 35 tonnes of cargoes arrived in the Venezuelan capital of Caracas on March 23.

The Associated Press (AP) news agency said citing a Venezuelan official that two Russian aircraft "arrived in Caracas this weekend as part of ongoing military cooperation between the two allies." "Russian military officials are visiting to discuss equipment maintenance and training, and strategy," AP added.

Meanwhile, President of Venezuela’s National Constituent Assembly Diosdado Cabello have confirmed that two Russian jets arrived in the country, adding that the landing was approved by President Nicolas Maduro’s government.
