  • Russian President Vladimir Putin center attends a high-tech forum for youth in Yaroslavl Russia Thursday Dec. 13 2018. Putin said that Russia

"How to do this, how to take charge and guide in the necessary direction".

His comments follow a spate of concert cancellations by venue owners and local authorities across Russian Federation and the brief arrest of a popular rap artist, Husky.

After his concert was cancelled in Krasnodar, southern Russian Federation, he tried to perform from the roof of a vehicle instead, leading to his arrest for hooliganism.

The explosion of rap music in Russian Federation spurred President Vladimir Putin to call for cultural leaders on Saturday to devise a means of controlling its role for youth culture instead of an outright ban, saying it otherwise will lead to the decay of the nation.

Putin on Saturday was responding to a statement about rap concert cancellations made by music producer and member of the advisory council Igor Matvienko.

"Of all of these, drugs are the most worrying".

Putin described it as a path to the degradation of the nation.

Putin said such heavy-handed measures were often counterproductive, and suggested an alternative approach.

Mr Putin also addressed the enigma of how to control the music genre's bad language.

He said: "She told me personally that it's a part of our language".

"It's just a question of how you use it".

Likening swear words to body parts, Putin joked: 'We have all sorts of body parts, and it's not like we put them on display all the time, whether it's hot or cold'.

Lev Zelyony, Deputy Chairman of the Council on Space Research of the Russian Academy of Sciences (RAS) and Director of the its Space Research Institute, said Moscow wanted to build two strategic observatories on the surface of the moon for "radio astronomy studies, cosmic ray research and other tasks".

Putin said more than 1,000 people are now employed at the Moscow embassy and three United States consulates in Russian Federation.

Dr Zelyony said a permanent human presence was not needed with robots taking on more functions.
