MOSCOW, November 3. The President of Russia Vladimir Putin said that the main objective of the Russian Federation, including in Syria, the fight against terrorism, but to intimidate Russia will not succeed, it’s pointless, in my opinion. This position is the head of state expressed at the meeting with representatives of scientific, cultural, religious and public organizations of Dagestan during a visit to the exhibition dedicated to the 2000 anniversary of Derbent.

“About the fact that someone can bully, I fully agree with you: Russian people in General, and Dagestan especially, to never intimidate no one could and it is absolutely the attempt to use improper means, as lawyers say, is pointless, in my opinion, – said Putin. And our goal, really, and in Syria, and wherever – the fight against terrorism.”
The President stressed that the Russian Federation conducts active work aimed at cooperation with all forces in the fight against terrorism, regardless of their religious affiliation. “We are ready to cooperate with all forces who are fighting terrorism, regardless of religious affiliation. And in doing so, we want to inform you quite hard,” he said.
“If a fight is inevitable, it is necessary to beat the first”
On October 22, speaking at the meeting of the Discussion club “Valdai”, Putin said that the Russian military is in Syria to protect primarily the interests of the Russians. According to the President, the threat of terrorist attacks in Russia from its actions in Syria have not become neither more, nor less.

“Here we did not take any action in Syria. That forced the terrorists to strike in Volgograd at the railway station? They just hate the mentality, the struggle with Russia as such. So we’d better take off to fight there than wait here,” Putin said.
