Russian President Vladimir Putin said that the feelings of Muslims cannot be insulted and justified by freedom of creativity.

Putin said in response to a question about the line that separates insulting someone’s feelings from “the artist’s right to expression.”

Putin also questioned whether there was any connection between downloading a photo of Nazi leader Adolf Hitler to the “Immortal Regiment” website dedicated to World War II veterans and freedom of creativity.

“Let’s think about this aspect of the issue. We must provide freedom in general, because a sad and boring future awaits us without it, but we must realize that this freedom contradicts our goals when it tampers with someone else’s freedom,” the Russian president said.

The Russian president added that he is convinced that insulting the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) is not freedom of creativity, saying: “Does insulting the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) represent freedom of creativity? I don’t think so. Such matters call for other, more extreme phenomena.”

On the other hand, Russian President Vladimir Putin suggested that the recent developments around the Donbas region indicate that the Ukrainian government is preparing to launch a new military operation in that region.
