    Venezuelan leader Hugo Chavez will head for Russia on October 11.

    Venezuelan leader Hugo Chavez will head for Russia on October 11, Venezuelan news agency AVN reported.

    Chavez's visit to the Russian capital - his ninth - will be part of his international tour.

    "I am leaving for Russia October 11... and then I am going to head for China," AVN quoted him as saying.

    The outspoken Venezuelan leader last visited Moscow in September 2009, when he announced that his country recognizes the independence of the former Georgian republics of South Ossetia and Abkhazia.

    Earlier Latin American media reported that Chavez's visit agenda includes Belarus and Ukraine. Reuters said he also plans to drop in at Iran.
