Summary/Abstract: The paper deals with economic relations between Serbia and Russia in the early 21st century in the context of the “European path“ designated by Serbian politics and traditional “political friendship“ between Serbian and Russian peoples on the Slavic and Orthodox basis. The main hypothesis is that, in essence, economic relations between Russia and Serbia are of marginal significance not only for the Russian Federation, but also for the Republic of Serbia, and that they provide almost no basis for the expansion of cooperation between the two countries or, more precisely, do not offer any realistic perspective in which Serbia’s economic cooperation with Russia would be an alternative to its inclusion in the European Union.
