Two Russian planes landed in Caracas over the weekend with a group of 99 soldiers from Moscow.

Venezuela's self-proclaimed interim president, Juan Guaidó, said today that the presence of nearly a hundred Russian troops in the country "violates the Constitution."

"It seems that (in the Government of President Nicolás Maduro), they do not trust their military, because they are importing them, violating the Constitution again," he said.
