TL;DR

russian aircraft have arrived in caracas as part of military cooperation between the two allies a venezuelan official said sunday. Russian military officials are visiting to discuss equipment maintenance and training the official said on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the matter. Venezuelas President Nicolas Maduro speaks during an anti imperialist rally for peace in Caracas on Saturday. One of those warnings delivered directly by Russias deputy foreign minister Sergei Ryabkov to US special envoy on Venezuelan affairs Elliot Abrams is understood to have been that no American military intervention in Venezuela will be tolerated by Moscow. No doubt though it remains unclear just how active the Russian military will be in Venezuela. Russian military aircraft packed with troops arrived in Caracas. A flight tracking site showed that one plane left Caracas on Sunday. If it turns out that the Russians are the only thing keeping Nicolas Maduro in power they probably wont be going away any time soon.
