At present, there are no direct flights between Russia and Venezuela.
“We will open direct flights between Moscow and Caracas soon so that our young people will have an opportunity to spend holidays in Russia", Maduro said late on Thursday, addressing participants of an anti-war rally in Caracas.
The statement was made by Maduro in response to an invitation for Venezuelan young people to visit Russia, expressed by the National Youth Council of Russia, whose representatives joined the rally in Caracas.
Maduro added that a Venezuelan youth delegation would visit Russia to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the victory over fascism.
Russia is supporting Venezuelan President Maduro as the only legitimate leader of the country amid an acute political crisis that erupted in Venezuela in January after opposition leader Juan Guaido proclaimed himself interim head of state.
