Russian Federation has been engaged in the drills since Monday, when it sent warplanes, including Tu-160 bombers. Igor Konashenkov has stated.

"We have spoken with representatives of Russia and have been informed that their military aircraft, which landed in Venezuela, will be leaving on Friday and going back to Russia", Sanders said in a statement Wednesday.

The spokesman added that the Tu-160 aircraft were unmatched by any other U.S. or North Atlantic Treaty Organisation warplanes in terms of speed, payload and range, while its revamped version, the Tu-160M2, left its rivals far behind.

This week, Russian Federation placed two nuclear-capable Tupolev Tu-160 strategic bombers in Venezuelan territory and showed them off in the skies as a show of force for the Maduro regime.

Watch Russian Tu-160s drill with Venezuelan jets from INSIDE strategic bomber's cockpit (VIDEOS) After Russian Tu-160 strategic bombers performed a rare 10-hour-long practice flight with the Venezuelan Air Force over the Caribbean, the Defense Ministry has released footage showing the drill from a unique perspective.

Russian Federation is interested in deploying its military infrastructure in Latin America, close to the US borders, as Washington continues sending military advisers and weapons to Ukraine, Moscow's arch-rival.

The U.S. has also sent planes to overseas allies located close to Russian Federation. "Contrast this with Russian Federation, whose approach to the man-made disaster in Venezuela is to send bomber aircraft instead of humanitarian assistance, ' Manning said". The Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov may have alluded to when he said earlier today that Moscow is still convinced that a summit meeting between Putin and Trump is "equally necessary for both". It is not unlikely that this South American country would do the same as Syria, allowing Russian Federation to establish military bases in its soil. The U.S. power is gradually declining. When the United States failed to overthrow Castro's Communist regime, during the operation of the Swine Gulf, Cuba thought of getting help from Soviet Union to protection. Although there were talks of air strikes to Cuban missile sites, Kennedy made a decision to resolve the crisis with diplomacy. Washington has sensed the danger, especially since these bombers can target locations within the U.S.
