U.S. Secretary of State Michael Pompeo criticized the Russian government for sending “bombers halfway around the world” to Venezuela.

“The Russian and Venezuelan people should see this for what it is: two corrupt governments squandering public funds, and squelching liberty and freedom while their people suffer,” Pompeo said on Twitter late Monday.

It's “absolutely inappropriate” for Pompeo to call the Russian government corrupt, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters Tuesday on a conference call. After U.S. President Donald Trump last week criticized the secretary of state's predecessor, Rex Tillerson, “maybe such an assessment will follow concerning the undiplomatic remarks of Mr. Pompeo,” Peskov said.

A group of Russian military planes crossed the Atlantic Ocean and landed in Venezuela, the Russian state news agency TASS reported earlier, citing a Defense Ministry statement. According to the ministry, two strategic Tu-160 bombers, an An-124 cargo plane and a long-range Il-62 jet airliner were among aircraft that landed at Maiquetia airport outside Caracas on Monday.

The U.S. and European Union have led an effort to impose sanctions on Venezuela as they seek to isolate the country on the world stage. The U.S. has accused Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro of undermining democratic institutions amid the country's growing political and economic crisis.
