Russian PM Vladimir Putin will visit Serbia in October

Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin is planning on visiting Belgrade for the second time this year, daily Danas has learned from top Serbian officials.

The Russian prime minister officially visited Serbia on March 23, when he spoke to Serbian President Boris Tadić, the Serbian government and Prime Minister Mirko Cvetković about political and economic cooperation.

Putin’s wish to revisit Belgrade just seven months later has surprised many Serbian top officials, but it is only a part of his international activities ahead of the Russian parliamentary elections in December and presidential elections in March, Danas writes.

However, they pointed out that the Russian prime minister presented to the Serbian government a list of local energy and infrastructure projects and companies that Russia was interested in, so that it was therefore possible that this could be one of the topics of the talks.
