Putin and Islam.

"In Russia, we live like Russians. Any minority, from anywhere, if it wants to live in Russia, to work and eat in Russia, it should speak Russian, and should respect the Russian laws. If they prefer Sharia Law, and live the life of Muslims, then we advise them to go to those places where that's the state law."

"Russia does not need Muslim minorities. Minorities need Russia, and we will not grant them special privileges, or try to change our laws to fit their desires, no matter how loud they yell 'discrimination'. We will not tolerate disrespect of our Russian culture. We better learn from the suicides of America, England, Holland and France, if we are to survive as a nation. The Muslims are taking over those countries and they will not take over Russia. The Russian customs and traditions are not compatible with the lack of culture or the primitive ways of Sharia Law and Muslims.

"When this honourable legislative body thinks of creating new laws, it should have in mind the Russia national interest first, observing that the Muslim minorities are not Russians"

Vladimir Putin's address to the Russian parliament on 4th August 2013.

No doubt there as to who's side Putin is on regarding the clash of civilisations.
