MOSCOW, October 30. /TASS/. Russian authorities have "no wish to persecute cultural figures at all costs," President Vladimir Putin said at a meeting of the Council for the Development of Civil Society and Human Rights.

"Let us treat everyone equally. We have no wish to crack down on anyone and persecute anyone at all costs," he said. "However, we all should abide by laws no matter what our profession is," Putin added.
