From Vitaly Klim's facebook.
Friends from Moscow reported: since yesterday, since around 11.03.14: 40 minutes and to date, the core functions of the Office of the RUSSIAN FEDERATION Dmitry Medvedev, are in control of the ARMED FORCES of the RUSSIAN FEDERATION. Noticed increased appearances of "member-carriers" [slang for chauffeured limousines of the government people] accompanied by TRAFFIC POLICE and security to the Kremlin and the Russian Government, and the Kremlin and Moscow itself, marked by unprecedented activity of the helicopter flights. Today, on several occasions landing helicopters were also seen on the territory of Hospital at the Office of the President. May be pure coincidence, as the hospital has pretty much solid clientele.
But this only confirms the fact that something's gone wrong!
We are waiting for news!
This is pure rumor, and you are the first to read about it.
If you want to be on this right wing, monarchy, paleolibertarianism and nationalism ping list, but are not, please let me know. If you are on it and want to be off, also let me know. This ping list is not used for Catholic-Protestant debates.
Very much so.
The photo is probably stock.
I wish it was true, sounds like pure fantasy to me.
Thats like getting Ukraine news from RT, a crazy Russian site
its probably a photo of a regulaly used helipad.
"in particular, next to the Situation Control Center a helicopter landed, identified by amateur aviation enthusiast as the aircraft of Presidential Signal Service..."
There was another rumor today that Putin was very ill.
All rumors until CNN and Huffpo reports it.
Here's another: Special Communications Helicopters Circle Over Moscow
Medvedev is Putin’s poodle & always has been.
But maybe Putin is waxing delusional & thinks that stupid Westerners will believe absolutely anything....
Right. The link at #10 goes on to say that a planned European-Asian summit where Pu was supposed to attend, was canceled.
Such hugh and series news from Ukranian facebooker!
Yeah, right. I won’t believe it until it is announced that Putin has a cold.
Where is Putin? Russian leaders absence sparks rumors.
Putin may be ill, all of a sudden.
Putin is sneakier than Obama, the Clintons even.
If this rumor of illness progresses to the Russians claiming that Putin has up and died, i would still be suspicious.
Id expect Putin to pull a Tom Sawyer,and either silently observe his own fake funeral,perhaps even participate in it from under a black hood, or he would pop up years later snatching back all the power, and holding a grudge.
If one morning russians wake up to classical music playing all day long, then Putin is dead.
