I would like to emphasize that the Islamic world can fully count on support and assistance from the Russian side,” Putin wrote in his telegram, published on the presidential website on Wednesday.
“I am confident that together we can do a lot to strengthen international security and stability, to build a fair, democratic world order that would be free from any form of intolerance, discrimination and dictatorship imposed by force,” he added.
