Putin has been in control of Russia for over 13 years. The longest he's been out of view is 2 consecutive days on 2 occasions. So when Putin went
missing recently for over 10 days naturally many people wanted to know why. It's a valid question given he's the leader of a nuclear armed country in
the middle of a slow moving war in Ukraine. The Kremlin's clumsy attempts to paper over Putin not being present with a few time delayed stories
certainly didn't help.
A reason for Putin's disappearance is starting to be pieced together now.
It all started with the opposition leader Nemtsov's murder. This was a brazen political crime that seemed to catch many of Russia's power brokers by
surprise. As the investigation into the murder dragged on it became pretty clear some powerful forces were indeed behind it. The trigger mam and his
helpers were Chechen. When the leader of Chechya Kadyrov came out publicly praising one of them everyone knew who dun it.
Of course Kadyrov was given a very high medal by Putin himself for his service to Russia. Or quite possibly his ongoing service to Putin including the
The powers that be in Russia weren't happy. The FSB investigation was pointing to Kadyrov, however he is Putin's right hand man. His public VK and
Instagram posts professing undying loyalty to Putin were a little obvious. Rich and Powerful people with contacts inside the FSB didn't see the
Nemtsov murder coming...and they didn't want another surprise like that.
Putin disappeared from view for 10 days.
Suddenly Putin's back...and everyone is watching for signs of what happened. One of the signs was the sudden reclassification of Nemtsov's
murder...from a contract killing to a hate crime.
Clearly Kadyrov and Putin had won and shut down the Nemtsov investigation. A hate crime means no investigation for a 'boss' that ordered the killing.
The fall guys will take the wrap and that will be the end of it. The FSB has had a long standing hate on for Kadyrov so this is a big win against the
FSB. Kadyrov is clearly untouchable in Russia now.
Now since Putin's return Kadyrov has been given 2 more medals for service to various parts of Russia, on March 16 and March 18. That's three medals in
9 days including the highest medal anyone can receive in Russia. Kadyrov looks to be moving to Moscow very soon and a good guess is he'll replace
Medvedev who clearly isn't resonating with the Russian public.
Of course Kadyrov has a long way to go to consolidate a power base in Moscow should he be brought into the capital soon. But he's clearly a rising
star in the shadowy world of the Kremlin. A rising star that took Putin many days to keep the wolves from destroying.
