He warned that if the terrorists achieve the goal, then that will provide a new impulse to international terrorism, leading to more attacks throughout the world.

But the Russian president did not say which candidate he favors, stressing his country would respect the choice of US people in the Nov. 2 presidential election, which pits Bush against Democrat John Kerry.

In his speech, Putin reaffirmed his opposition to the US-led war on Iraq, saying "Russia was always against the military operation in Iraq," informs Xinhua.

According to The Boston Globe, "I consider the activities of terrorists in Iraq are not as much aimed at coalition forces but more personally against President Bush," Putin said at a news conference after a regional summit in the Tajik capital, Dushanbe.

"International terrorism has as its goal to prevent the election of President Bush to a second term," he said. "If they achieve that goal, then that will give international terrorism a new impulse and extra power."
