    Putin never said this. Nice job promoting Russian propaganda designed to make right wingers embrace Putin even more than they already do, though.

      It appears you could be right. However which is more important the exact words or the sentiment behind them?

      Your Snopes link includes the following:

      President Putin did, during his introductory remarks to a meeting of the Board of the Federal Migration Service in January 2012, speak words somewhat similar to the sentiments expressed in the item reproduced above, but with much more moderated language and a much less inflammatory tone:

      On the whole, the adaptation of guest workers is a separate and comprehensive issue. We must create the conditions for immigrants to normally integrate into our society, learn Russian and, of course, respect our culture and traditions and abide by Russian law. In this regard, I believe that the decision to make learning the Russian language compulsory and administer exams is well grounded. To do so, we will need to carry out major organisational work and introduce corresponding legislative amendments. I’d like to ask the Federal Migration Service and other departments to submit specific proposals to the government. These proposals should be openly discussed with ethnic minorities as well as public and religious organisations. This should be mandatory for all guest workers regardless of their future employment.

      And then there’s this: Russia: Immigrants need to observe our laws and respect our culture.

      And this: Putin on Immigration – “Russia is for Russians, first and foremost”
