For the first time Venezuela received on Monday in La Guaira, north Venezuela, the first out of four Russian vessels and anti-submarines of the Russian Navy on visit to the Latin American nation. A total of 514 marines aboard vessel Moskva (Moscow) were welcomed with a 21-gun salute given by the Marine Infantry and the Bolivarian National Armed Force (FANB), AVN reported.

Moskva is a warship equipped with long-range rockets and carrying 50 officials and 464 sub-officials and marines, who set sail for South America on June 6. The vessel and other three ships will remain in Venezuela until August 29, when they set sail for Spain and Portugal.

Along the vessels, there is also a Russian anti-submarine vessel, a tug-boat, and a tanker vessel.

The Russian navy delegation will visit the different components of the FANB and several public institutions, "where a tribute will be paid to Supreme Commander Hugo Chávez." On August 5, 2006, two Sukhoi 30 aircrafts landed at the airbase located in Maracay, northwest Venezuela, to commemorate Venezuela's Independence Day.
