Yeah I would have to agree with you on that, this appears to have been to sloppy to have been planned.

I think it's really hard to tell which option it could be, but everything is pointing to the idea that Putin is no longer in control whether that's because of illness, death or a coup.

A number of sources think the fight is against Medvedev and others and that he's been removed. They seem to think Putin is still in power but his power base just took a radical shift against him.

Until I see some positive evidence Putin isn't in control I have to believe he still is in control. Missing a meeting isn't enough for me. What else are you seeing that leads you to believe Putin is out of power? Your a reasoned opinion in this crazy ATS world!

Anyone with a name like noeltrotsky pushes their own propaganda I'm sure. I'm willing to bet that he has Putin hid under a rug and won't let him out.
