You can toss out the notion of Putin being this big anti-Islam adversary, it was always a ruse. He doesn’t mind it when he thinks that he can use it to his own benefit. Also, Sweden is once again about to put its foot into it, by going after an Islamic leader for implementing the sharia.

Sweden summons Russia envoy over reports of Chechnya anti-gay violence
Foreign ministry spokeswoman Johanna Westlund told AFP the Russian ambassador, Viktor Tatarintsev, was summoned due to “alarming reports that homosexuals in Chechnya have been imprisoned and tortured”.
Tatarintsev met state secretary Annika Söder, who “emphasized that the Russian government has a responsibility to make sure that human rights are respected on all of Russia’s territory”, Westlund said.
She would not disclose the Russian’s comments, saying only: “He confirmed that he would pass on the message to Moscow.”
The Kremlin said Thursday that reports of violence against homosexuals in Chechnya had not been confirmed and that “phantom complaints” to the media should instead be taken to the police.
