Putin says Russia needs a "civilised solution" to make Internet safer

MOSCOW, June 7 (Reuters) - Russian President Vladimir Putin on Thursday said there were no plans to shut down social media sites or limit Internet freedoms in Russia, but that a "civilised solution" is needed to make the Internet safer.

Speaking on national television in his annual call-in, Putin said Islamist militants have used encrypted online messaging services like Telegram to carry out attacks in Russia. (Reporting by Christian Lowe and Gabrielle Tétrault-Farber Writing by Tom Balmforth Editing by Maria Kiselyova)
