MOSCOW (Reuters) – Venezuela will use Russian military equipment during exercises on July 24, RIA news agency cited Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov as saying on Thursday.

“The arms and military equipment in Venezuela held by the Bolivarian armed forces are mainly Russian manufactured equipment. So it (the drills) simply can’t be carried out any other way,” he was quoted as saying.
