President Vladimir Putin of Russia believes that no country can wage war on terrorism on its own since "terrorism does not admit borders - either moral ones or borders between the states and continents". The Russian head of state said that in the Kremlin Wednesday as receiving credentials from foreign ambassadors. Terrorists are posing threat to the entire global community, the president said emphatically. Being among the first countries to launch an anti-terrorist fighting, Russia knows only too well that it is impossible to succeed in it without other countries' assistance. The politicians who have renounced the old-time logic believing that terrorists, wherever they are - in Afghanistan under the Taliban protection, in the Middle East, Balkans or Chechnya - must know that they are going to be brought to justice, are showing breadth of geopolitical views, said the Russian president. Moscow is going to have serious dialogue with other countries seeking to strengthen a global security system, and join hands in the search for ways of promoting strategic stability.
