MOSCOW, March 5. /TASS/. The process of relocation of the Venezuela’s state oil company PDVSA to Moscow from Lisbon will start soon, Ambassador of Venezuela to Russia Carlos Rafael Faria Tortosa told reporters on Tuesday.

"The working group of the ministry [of oil industry of Venezuela] will deal with this shortly: coming to Moscow to arrange logistics, so that to start working with Moscow directly," the diplomat said.
