Russian President Vladimir Putin has accepted the invitation to pay an official visit to the Republic of Serbia, but the exact date has not yet been set: “The visit is on the agenda. The exact date is to be determined through diplomatic channels,” said Dmitry Peskov, spokesman for the Russian President, according to TASS.
Aleksandar Vučić, the President of the Republic of Serbia, invited Vladimir Putin to visit Belgrade on December 4, 2019, during his meeting with Vladimir Putin in Sochi. On July 13, President Vučić said that Vladimir Putin confirmed his intention to visit the Republic of Serbia during the Victory Parade in Moscow on June 24.
The Republic of Serbia earlier announced that they were waiting for the Russian President at the ceremony of consecration of the Church of St Sava in Belgrade in October.
