Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin promised on Thursday that a new mosque will be built in Moscow.

"The construction of the mosque has been planned in Moscow. It will be done," Putin said during his annual Q&A session.

The mosque will be built in southeast Moscow, in a district with a large number of ethnic Tatars, the vast majority of whom are Muslims.

Local authorities vowed however to coordinate the construction of the mosque with the non-Muslim residents of the district.

There are currently only four mosques in Moscow - or one for every 500,000 Muslims in the Russian capital.
