Amid the ongoing debate around Charlie Hebdo, a French magazine that published cartoons on Islam, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov ruled out for Russia the publication of offensive caricatures on Islam.

“The existence of such a media in our country is absolutely impossible, including in terms of current legislation,” Mr. Peskov said.

“Russia is partly a Muslim country, there are up to 20 million Muslims in Russia, and in Russia, where, of course, the fundamental religion is Christianity – most of all we have Christians living here – the uniqueness of our country is precisely in its multi-ethnic and multi-religious nature, and all faiths live in full respect for each other,” he said, reported AA.

The publications of the cartoons have sparked a wave of anger and protests across the Islamic world as well as campaigns to boycott French products.
