MOSCOW, January 31 (RIA Novosti) - Religious radicals in Russia will fail in their attempts to intimidate clerics and followers of traditional Islam, Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Wednesday.

Speaking at a meeting with his envoys to Russian federal districts, Putin said that “multiethnic harmony should be consistently maintained” as “religious radicals… of various confessions” have intensified their activities in the country.

“In fact, a terrorist war is being waged against [those who teach] traditional Islam. They are being intimidated, deprived of their rights to speak to believers. At the same time, false values that have nothing to do with the traditional Islam are being imposed on people,” the Russian president said.

“As far as intimidation is concerned, I’m sure that those who are trying to do it will fail completely… Such people cannot be intimidated. But they evidently need our support and help, and this support should be efficient,” Putin said.
