"This is extremism being supplied to us from abroad when various psychos come to crap on our territory," Medvedev said in comments at a security meeting held in the regional capital Makhachkala and broadcast on state television.

"The work to bring about order, destroy the terrorist rabble should be continued," Medvedev said.

Medvedev's language recalled Putin's famous warning to militants from neighbouring Chechnya that Russian security forces would hunt them down even when they were "in the outhouse".

But he also said it was time to put an end to the homegrown problems like notoriously high levels of corruption and severe tensions within the administration that breed violence and insecurity.

"Such contradictions as clans, thievery, bribes. If we can't react to these problems we will keep fighting terrorism here," he said, telling officials to come up with a clear plan to fight terrorism in the Caucasus.
