He’s Baaack! Vladimir Putin Resurfaces

After disappearing from public view for 11 days, Russian President Vladimir Putin resurfaced Monday, meeting with Kyrgyzstan President Almazbek Atambayev at a St. Petersburg palace. The meeting marked Putin’s first public appearance since March 5, when Putin met with Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi.

The Guardian reports that during a joint appearance, Atambayev told reporters that Putin “has just driven me around the palace, and was behind the wheel himself, so there would be fewer rumors.”

“He’s not only walking, he’s driving his guests around,” Atambayev added.

I continue to suspect the reports are accurate that Putin's girlfriend, Alina Kabaeva, gave birth in Switzerland.

  1. RW, does this make you wonder why the buzz started over his "disappearance" ?
