Sputnik is live from Moscow, Russia, where Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Foreign Minister of Venezuela Jorge Arreaza are holding a joint press conference following their meeting on 22 June.

On Monday, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov confirmed Moscow's support for Caracas during a consultation on the current situation in Venezuela, as the country has been mired in a political crisis since the then-head of the opposition-controlled National Assembly, Juan Guaido, proclaimed himself interim president in a bid to oust re-elected President Nicolas Maduro from power.
