ST PETERSBURG, Russia (Reuters) - Russia's existing internet regulations are sufficient and the country needs no further restrictions, President Vladimir Putin said on Monday.

"The state should... eliminate certain threats," Putin told a group of journalists from Russian regions.

"In my point of view the existing restrictions are sufficient for now," he said.
