military exercises on Venezuelan soil that President Nicolas Maduro called a sign of strengthening relations. Two Russian air force planes landed in Venezuela's main airport on Saturday carrying a Russian defense official and nearly 100 troops, according to a local journalist, amid strengthening ties between Caracas and Moscow.
A flight-tracking website showed that two planes left from a Russian military airport bound for Caracas on Friday, and another flight-tracking site showed that one plane left Caracas on Sunday.
Reporter Javier Mayorca wrote on Twitter on Saturday that the first plane carried Vasily Tonkoshkurov, chief of staff of the ground forces, adding that the second was a cargo plane carrying 35 tonnes of material.

Looks like a US-Russo proxy war may be in the offing.
Yeah what always worries me about those is the word Proxy might be dropped one day.
Hey AOC, try this on; Russia, Russia, Russia!
More like President Trump got his “puppet master” to go get Maduro out of Venezuela.
Do we enforce the Monroe Doctrine anymore?
Did they bring their own food?
Most likely, and a lot of vodka:
"Reporter Javier Mayorca wrote on Twitter on Saturday that the first plane carried Vasily Tonkoshkurov, chief of staff of the ground forces, adding that the second was a cargo plane carrying 35 tonnes of material."
Defence Blog reports the emergence of a large number of the Russian military is the desire of Moscow to show their determination to Trump administration. Moreover, it quoted some sources as saying that a new Russian military base may appear in Venezuela in the near future.
Mauro and the elite have food.
Venezuelan Troops must be deserting by the bus load from the Bus Driver
What will our rah-rah Maduro commies like cortez, Bernie et al do now. They have 2 years of Putin bad, Trump-Putin love fest bad, Maduro and Venezuela communism good. Now Maduro-Putin love fest comes and the US commie Venezuela cheerleaders are tied in knots after hating Putin the past 2 years because of collusion with the evil Trump. Trying times for the liberal fidiots in the MSM and Congress, they need a scorecard to keep track of who to hate when. If they cheer for Venezuela now they are cheering for Russia-Russia-Russia.
Doesn’t sound good.
Thank Obama for non-enforcement (per a lookup):
President Barack Obama's Secretary of State John Kerry told the Organization of American States in November 2013 that the "era of the Monroe Doctrine is over."
What’s the difference between Soviet underhandedness and HRC? Nothing.
P S. BTW they’re still Soviets as far as I’m concerned.
Wooo, (/sarcasm) Security detail for Maduro. Bye Bye Maduro.
I think Maduro has Cuban troops there too.
And lots of Hezbollah folks.
