Just saw Fox News "reported" it was like a 15 sec "news" Vlad has a flu , this is why he didn't show up...
Although as there will be no press conference and there is confusion over whether or anyone other than state media will be allowed to cover the meeting, there's really no way of confirming whether he'll be there or not. The mystery deepens...

Russia shouldnt feel threatened, as we tried twice to invade it and failed miserably (Napoleon and Hitler)... but try telling a bear you're not a threat lol

That's just it though.. You have a new generation of Russian citizens who were born under the new days and not the old days. Secondly unless you were in the upper military or intelligence there were no "good old days of the Soviet union". you had bread lines and a 10 year wait to buy a car.
That's why I think Putin is out of touch when he behaves like its the 1980's and he is head of the USSR and not the Russian federation. Its why I was wondering if maybe his advisors are finally seeing the road he is on and started looking for an exit ramp.
if they tried to resign en mass I could see them smiling for muzzle flashes.
