On June 22 at 10:00 a.m. Moscow Time (GMT+3), the Valdai Discussion Club held a meeting with Venezuelan Foreign Minister Jorge Arreaza, as part of his visit to Russia.

The acute political struggle around Venezuela, accompanied by sanctions from Western countries, has remained a constant focus of the world community, as well as one of the key topics of modern international relations. The United States recognises the political ineffectiveness of the imposed sanctions, but continues to increase economic pressure, complicating ongoing humanitarian woes in Venezuela. According to Jorge Arreaza, the sanctions against Venezuela "are a crime against humanity".
