    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Russian President Vladimir Putin and Republika Srpska's President Milorad Dodik met on Thursday in Moscow to discuss the situation in the Balkans, Kremlin said in a statement.

    "The situation in the Balkans as well as different issues of bilateral cooperation have been discussed. [The sides] exchanged opinions on the relevant issues of the international agenda," the statement reads.

    According to the statement, the meeting was attended by Yuri Ushakov, Russian presidential aide, and Dusko Perovic, who heads Republika Srpska's mission in Russia.
