I travel to Moscow and the territories of the former Soviet Union frequently to report for several major news outlets. From my viewpoint, there is definitely something going on in the Kremlin regarding Putin. It is very difficult to figure out what this is.
It could be he is out of the city to be with his mistress as they have their baby. It could be he has a health problem.
It could be that he has died. It could be a change in power or an attempt at such.
I have no reason to say the following translation is fake, nor can I confirm it.
What I can say is that the Russians are following the Soviet script regarding drama at the Kremlin–meaning you need the CIA to try and figure out what is going on.
Stay tuned – this could get interesting!
The Kremlin is preparing a major announcement; journalists are asked not to depart for the weekend.
A source in the press service of the President of Russia says he is preparing a major announcement in the near future; and for this reason, heads of relevant media are asked to be ready in the next few days for a possible press conference.
This was indirectly confirmed by the CEO of the Center for Political Information polit-info, Alexei Mukhin.
Mukhin also denied reports that President Putin is currently incapacitated.
