And the will all be presented in mid-January (during his visit) in Belgrade.

This is when the Russian president will meet with his Serbian counterpart, Aleksandar Vucic, daily Vecernje Novosti writes on Thursday.

The arrangement, worth several hundred million euros, encompasses serious investments in infrastructure, energy, agricultural, defense, education, and tourism, the newspaper writes.

According to the article, its most important parts should be the contracts for the construction of railway corridors, connection of Serbia to the Turkish Stream gas pipeline, delivery of T-72 tanks and anti-aircraft missiles, and export of domestic food products to Russia.

The daily recalls that during Putin' visit to Serbia, Vucic will be presented with the Russian Order of (Saint) Alexander Nevsky, a sign that is given to a Serbian statesman for the first time in 100 years.

The last recipient of this high-ranking medal was former Serbian (Kingdom) and Yugoslav Prime Minister Nikola Pasic.
