In all, the two rulers signed a total of 31 agreements during Putin’s visit. One deal in particular that prompted concern among international observers was a “statement of intent” for Russia to help the socialist Venezuelan regime build a nuclear power plant.  
Via The Moscow Times:
Venezuela may spend more than $5 billion to buy Russian weapons, Prime Minister Vladimir Putin said Monday, signaling that the country is a larger market than Russia had expected. Venezuela’s spending on Russian weapons would include the $2.2 billion seven-year loan that Moscow promised to extend to Caracas in September, Putin said.

In asking for the loan, Caracas said it intended to buy several S-300 air defense systems and 92 T-72 tanks.Putin’s announcement Monday indicated that the trade might go well beyond those previous plans. 

This is not a loan, but a gift as the last loan made to Chavez to buy weapons, Venezuela defaulted.
