According to the US government, Russia is considering sending warships and nuclear vessels, including a nuclear submarine, to Venezuela. That takes place at a time of tension intense geopolitics, with the Essequibo crisis and US President Joe Biden's authorization for Ukraine to use American weapons on Russian territory.

Since the Cold War, the Soviet Union and, later, Russia, have maintained a strategic presence in the Caribbean.

Nicolás Maduro, president of Venezuela, counts on Russian and Chinese support in his demands territorial issues, especially in the Essequibo region, which is disputed with Guyana.
