It will be the first time since the end of the Cold War that the Russian Navy has sailed into the region.
The Russian ships, including the nuclear-powered cruiser Pyotr Veliky (Peter the Great), was due to arrive sometime this week, to coincide with a two-day visit to Venezuela by Russian President Dmitry Medvedev.
