Russia and Venezuela take relations to a new level in the context of US sanctions against Caracas, said Russian Deputy Prime Minister Yuri Borisov.

“The talks between Presidents Vladimir Putin and Nicholas Maduro in Moscow on September 25 made it possible to conceptually discuss the directions of multifaceted constructive interaction between the Russian Federation and Venezuela as strategic partners and allies”, – Borisov said in Caracas on Saturday.

According to him, Maduro’s visit to Russia became a signal for the international community.

“I believe that American unilateral measures provide Russia with a unique opportunity to build our cooperation on a fundamentally new basis”, – Borisov said.
