Russia cannot be target for terror attacks by Islamic fundamentalists – Putin

The Crocus City Hall shooting targeted the country’s unity, the Russian president has said

The main aim of the Crocus City Hall massacre was to undermine the unity of the country, Russian President Vladimir Putin has said. No other goals are visible because Russia couldn’t be the target of attacks by Islamic fundamentalists, he added.

Speaking at a congress of the Russian trade unions federation on Thursday, Putin touted Russia as “a unique example of interfaith harmony and unity.” He noted that the country professes those values not only at home, but also abroad. “Thus, it cannot become a target for attack by Islamic fundamentalists,” he stressed.
