"A number of bilateral documents will be signed following the talks," the press service added.
Tsipras said in an exclusive interview with TASS First Deputy Director General Mikhail Gusman on Tuesday that Russian-Greek relations had a vast potential.
"We should see how our nations and countries can really cooperate in many spheres - economy, energy, trade, agriculture, and find out where we can help each other and, first of all, look into how our cooperation can be constructive as I indeed believe that Greece, as a member of the EU, can be a link and a bridge between the West and Russia," he said.
The prime minister suggested that the possibilities for strengthening relations between Greece and Russia could be also related to tourism and also various cultural events.
"In Russia, besides the very important meetings that I will have with Russian President Vladimir Putin, Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev and the Patriarch of Moscow and all Russia, I will also have a chance to make a speech in one of the central universities of Moscow," he said.
"From this point of view, I believe that the possibility of an exchange and cooperation at the educational level between the Greek and Russian universities is also a very important aspect of enhancing our mutual ties," Tsipras said.
