Just because a picture was posted on the internet three days ago does not mean it could not have been taken much earlier. One picture is brighter because it is possible to adjust the brightness of an image at will.
Death of Putin's chief bodyguard General Viktor Zolotov is widely reported on web, but no credible source is cited. Clarification is needed!
Clearest indication so far: Putin's aide on Ukraine Vladislav Surkov flew suddenly w family to Hong Kong = Putin losing & Ukraine policy key
What to look for: On Monday Putin is supposed to reappear with Draconian laws and big government change. If not, very good: hardliner loss.
Kremlin insider A Rahr: Putin will save Medvedev. Pros Gen Chaika, Minister of Interior Kolokoltsev & 1st Dep PM Shuvalov out. Interesting
Defence Minister #Shoigu is rumoured to have overthrown #Putin. Shoigu will restore relations with the West.
Latest from the rumour mill is that Putin has been removed from power. Shoigu is in charge.

They look the same to me.
I right-clicked on the image and selected "search google for this image".
It looks as if there are two images, one where putin is bright, and another where he is a little grey, but aside that, that is the only thing I notice about the images, aside from size differential.
Oh, and all the pictures are from the last 3 days to 8 hours ago. But google only likes to keep catalogs of recent things, not a long history of images. Or so it seems.
I'd love to have a link to the original image. Not a blog-post from the last 72 hours.
Why would the same image be two different colors, if taken from the same camera, unless one is older, and one is newer? (I'm sure there is a logical explanation, but I'm no photographer, so forgive my ignorance here).

Russian TV channel scotches rumours of a Kremlin coup with report Mr Putin is at rural retreat recovering from flu, while spokesman says president will be watching Crimea documentary airing tonight
Media speculation has reached fever pitch over the weekend about the whereabouts of Russian President Vladimir Putin – now missing from the public eye for 10 days – with swirling theories of bloody Kremlin coups, secret births or sudden deaths.
But the reality on Sunday appeared as if it might be more prosaic. Has Mr Putin really just been in bed with a bad cold?
Opposition television station Dozhd reported on Sunday that Mr Putin had come down with the flu and was currently recuperating at one of his country residences outside Moscow, citing anonymous sources.
