Neither of the two Russian strategic bombers that flew to Venezuela on Wednesday are carrying nuclear weapons, a Russian air force spokesman said on Thursday, quoted by Interfax.

“There were no nuclear weapons on board these planes,” said the spokesman, Vladimir Drik.

NATO planes tracking the two Tu-160 bombers as they flew to the South American country on Wednesday came “dangerously close,” he added.
