Moscow, November 20, Interfax - Moscow has a sufficient number of mosques, Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin said.
"I think that Moscow has enough mosques. Especially as we can see that most people participating in the celebration of Islamic holidays come from other regions and the suburbs of Moscow. Visitors constitute from 60% to 70% of the total number. But we cannot accommodate everyone. I think this is unnecessary," Sobyanin said in an interview published on the Komsomolskaya Pravda website on Wednesday.
The city administration has not issued permits to build new mosques but the construction of a new building of a mosque near the Olympiysky Sports Center in downtown Moscow continues, he said.
Sergei is on to something.
Our leaders seem to have forgotten.
Much can be said about the Russians, but they know how to take a stand for their country.
Good on you, Mr. Mayor.
It might even have too many!
How about ZERO?
Where can I learn Russian?
Did you ever think you’d see the day?
Maybe just me I thought Russians kill all their Muslums during Chechen war in 1990s
Fight Terrorism -- Deport MUSLIMS!!
One is too many.
At least one person in the political world has the guts to say it!
Although weakly said, it’s more than expected.
CULTURE MATTERS...! good on you, Ivan..!
New York Post headline: Mosque-NO
Nope, but they did let 'em know they were serious about eliminating terrorists, terrorist families, terrorist funding, and Muslim radicals.
I believe that Muslim population in Russian Federation territories approaches 20%. No other nation has successfully managed that percentage of Muslims.
OH I see
Just seem at first I thought they got rid of them they really put supporters on notice
Don’t mess with us OR ELSE
Mosques are still popping up like mushrooms all across the US, and nobody has the guts to say a word against the murderous b*stards who are colonizing here to take over and kill us- just as commanded by the Koran.
Every mayor of every American city should do the same on the grounds that each is an anti-American terrorist breeding pustule.
You can’t even say “Moscow” without saying “mosque”.
(at least in English)
That was Western ruling elite MSM propaganda to try to demonize the Russian government officials as brutal and Islamophobic, and it worked in the West.
The Russians responded to Chechen terrorism because they were SO violent against absolute civilians and because of the Belsan school invasion and murder of most of the children there.
The Russian response included identification and intent to capture ALL Islamic terrorists, their families, and their supporters.
The operation also targeted the Chechen military that supported the terrorists, and was infiltrated by them.
The operation was successful, and the Chechen Military was entirely co-opted and is now the primary hunter of Chechen terrorists and political agitators.
