Well, the US can hysterically oppose Russia or China, but it has nothing to do to stop normal state to state relations between Venezuela and other countries. This is China and Russia's Freedom of Navigation.

On Wednesday, Trump said Russia "needed to get out" of Venezuela. Earlier in the week, Pompeo denounced in a phone call with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov "the continued insertion of Russian military personnel" in the Latin American country.

Earlier, US Special Representative for Venezuela Elliott Abrams, commenting on the arrival of Russian military aircraft in Caracas, said that various measures could be taken by Washington, particularly in economic terms, hinting at more sanctions against Russia.

Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on March 28 that the Russian military personnel’s presence in Venezuela was fully legitimate and in accordance with the defence agreement between Moscow and Caracas. She added that the personnel would remain in the country for as long as Moscow and Caracas deem their presence necessary.
