Tens of thousands of Serbs flooded the streets of Belgrade on Thursday, to give a warm welcome to Russian President Vladimir Putin, who arrived in Serbia to reward his Serbian counterpart Aleksandar Vucic with the Order of Alexander Nevsky.

A march was held through the centre of the Serbian capital, which ended up in front of the St. Sava Temple, where Putin and Vucic addressed the crowd.

The attendees exhibited numerous flags of Russia and Serbia, placards depicting both leaders, as well as messages of brotherhood between both nations.

Delegations of both countries are expected to sign a total of 21 agreements on cooperation in various fields, such as culture, infrastructure redevelopment, but also on the use of cosmic space for peaceful purposes through ‘Roskosmos.’

Moreover, Serbian representatives are reportedly hoping to secure economic packages for Serbia, Serbian participation in the Turkish Stream gas pipeline, the end of the free trade agreement with the Eurasian Economic Union (EEA), the continuation of negotiations on military co-operation and Moscow’s unequivocal support in resolving the Kosovo issue.

This is a Civilized Place for Public Discussion

Please treat this discussion with the same respect you would a public park. We, too, are a shared community resource — a place to share skills, knowledge and interests through ongoing conversation.

These are not hard and fast rules, merely guidelines to aid the human judgment of our community and keep this a clean and well-lighted place for civilized public discourse.

Improve the Discussion

Help us make this a great place for discussion by always working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you are not sure your post adds to the conversation, think over what you want to say and try again later.

The topics discussed here matter to us, and we want you to act as if they matter to you, too. Be respectful of the topics and the people discussing them, even if you disagree with some of what is being said.

Be Agreeable, Even When You Disagree

You may wish to respond to something by disagreeing with it. That’s fine. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. Please avoid:

  • Name-calling
  • Ad hominem attacks
  • Responding to a post’s tone instead of its actual content
  • Knee-jerk contradiction

Instead, provide reasoned counter-arguments that improve the conversation.
