Thursday, 22 December 2016

 

Serbian Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic said on Monday he plans to discuss purchase of Russian Buk anti-aircraft missile systems when he will be paying a visit to Russia.

We will discuss the issue of anti-aircraft missile systems, probably Buk-M1 or Buk-M2, which will be cheaper for us as we will pay for them," Beta news agency quoted him as saying. "The price is going to be very good and we are thankful to the Russians for that."

Earlier in the day, Vucic announced plans to buy six Russian MiG-29 fighter jets. In addition, Serbia will also receive 30 Tanks T 72B and 30 APCs.
