Be brave guys - Putin moved to the next level in your game ...

That was also posted in your source article... Something really is not sounding right.
Perhaps future historians will call these events "conspiracy of generals".
Indeed, on the one hand - a lieutenant colonel.
And on the other - solid generals, two of Colonel General, three General of the Army.
After almost two weeks of fierce struggle under the carpet picture of the battlefield, which opened to the public in the evening yesterday, leaves little doubt as to its outcome. The party of "blood and bubble" (in accordance with the terminology A.Piontkovskogo) suffered heavy losses and retreat on all fronts under the onslaught of the party "bloodshed".
Absent from February 27 Ivanov appeared in the public space, securing an alliance with the Russian Orthodox Church, or at least to ensure its neutral position. Nikolai Patrushev, Security Council Meeting in Pyatigorsk accepted the surrender of Ramzan Kadyrov. K.Remchukov from the box of the Bolshoi Theater announced the impending resignation of Igor Sechin. It seems a foregone conclusion and the resignation V.Kolokoltseva - despite the rebuttal to dismiss the earlier rumors. In other words, the power and the financial support of the "national leader" seems to be paralyzed.
In contrast to the "pop" Ivanov "disappeared" Putin said. Cancellation of his visit to Kazakhstan and actively thrown into public space information about his "illness" make us think about where he is physically present and in what condition.
If the proposed analysis is correct, then in the next few days should be expected resignation as prime minister Dmitry Medvedev and Sergei Ivanov purpose to it. The State Duma led by Naryshkin ensure correct vote of its members.
After which the public is likely to be informed about what needs to be a national leader deserved rest.
Anyone who believes that the conspiracy involved (consciously or unconsciously) only generals or just security forces, slightly simplifies the situation. On the eve of the assassination of Boris Nemtsov in a safe place for 15 days was sent to another potential candidate for the role of "the sacred victim", a popular blogger, specializing in publications leaks against defendants Party "blood and bubble" regularly merge party "bloodshed". Another prominent opposition journalist a few days ago pretty safe to assume that "after the murder of Nemtsov's Putin will be overthrown soon."
Readers who mistakenly believe that the author of these lines supposedly there is any sympathy for any of the parties in this mortal combat, corresponding to the classical maxim of "plague on both your houses."
However, in addition to the treatment of this maxim, it is also difficult to forget and inevitably come to mind historical analogy:
- About the corrupt regime of the Shah Reza Pahlavi with the secret police SAVAK, on the one hand, and replaced it without the regime of Ayatollah SAVAK secret service, but with the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps, on the other;
- About the corrupt regime Chiang Kai-shek with the secret police and punitive expeditions against kommunictov, on the one hand, and replaced it Maoist regime without Kuomintang secret service, but with a really great terror, on the other.
"Some of Nemtsov's associates say his shooting is being used by one faction to send Putin a message that they are unhappy and need to be reckoned with," Reuters reported.
Additionally, former economic policy adviser to Putin and current senior fellow at the Cato Institute, Andrey Illarionov, wrote on his blog that Putin's continued absence suggests a palace coup.
He said that factions within the power structure have become visible, there likely to be some power change-ups, and that "fights over the number two position" — aka Medvedev — have "exploded!"

Interesting. Even CNN is speaking about Putin not being visable.
An of course they are talking about the access to US for miltary threats.
Maybe there is something going on, bigger than we know.
Between Iran, N korea, and Russia. Who knows, maybe they are planning a spanking for the US.
Countries are already afraid to help Ukraine.

All I can say is this:
If Russian officials are leaving the UK, anyone from ATS living in London might want to consider taking a vacation from London for a few weeks.
Just in case.

I'm not being funny, but just because someone tweets a statement and it gets retweeted by somebody else, does not make that statement a fact.
