Putin's whereabouts - Ticino?

Putin hasn't been seen in public since 5 March. Blick is reporting that Putin's fianceé is in Ticino to give birth and that possibly he is there too:

My Russian is rusty, but if I remember right - if it's a boy, then he would be a Putin. And if it's a girl, she'd be a Putina.

Re: Putin's whereabouts - Ticino?

What I want to know is did the CIA know about this before the Blick, or did they read it in the Blick like the rest of the proletariat, using Google Translate?

Why would she come to Switzerland to give birth? No hospitals in Russia?

That even the local ras of that gang admits that the crappy homecountry is nothing but trash (i.e. also babies refuse to be born there),


can give the world some hope.
And the guy was ready to go through the hassle of bypassing the embargo while getting into the country on the back of a bird and a weasel ...
... more power to him and his spawn.

Re: Putin's whereabouts - Ticino?

"Corriere del Ticino" was able to verify that Putin's financeé had a baby girl in a clinic in Sorengo, but it was several weeks ago. It also says that Putin evidently did not set foot in Ticino during her stay:

Re: Putin's whereabouts - Ticino?

TicinoNews has this on the story, summarized: Putin and his fianceé arrived last week in Ticino for the birth of his daughter. She stayed at the clinic and he with friends. They were also seen in Lugano. The clinic would neither confirm nor deny the childbirth.

The article concludes:
"The great bustle of Russian-registered cars last week in Sorengo, the mysterious disappearance for nearly ten days of President Putin and his friendship with a gynecologist working at Clinica Sant'Anna, confirm the thesis of the birth."

It's entirely possibly to become a father at that age. I don't speak from personal experience, but my father and wifey had my stepsister when he was in his 50s.

Re: Putin's whereabouts - Ticino?

From Russia, with love child....


Quote:
President Vladimir Putin's spokesman denied rumors Friday that the president was out of town to attend the birth of his child.


Spokesman Dmitry Peskov told Forbes that "information about the birth of a baby fathered by Vladimir Putin does not correspond to reality," the magazine reported.
...the Kremlin denies it, so it's officially true!

I was trying to suggest the CIA fathered this child to get a spy in Putins inner circle; failed humour : :`

Can't confirm the authenticity of the photo, but perhaps Medvedev is planning to return soon?

Re: Putin's whereabouts - Ticino?

If Putin doesn't appear on Wednesday, then something is seriously wrong with him....

Quote:
On March 18, Putin is expected to attend a large-scale concert on the Red Square to celebrate the annexation of Crimea. “This has been confirmed by the Kremlin spokesman, who said the president has a very tight schedule next week. But his current location remains unknown,” he said.


Security expert and Reform Party politician Eerik Niiles Kross said the situation with Putin could be just a conspiracy theory overload, but it does seem like something is not in order in the Kremlin.


Kross told Postimees there are a number of theories circling in the press, including Putin suffering a stroke and an attempt by Putin's inner circle to force him out, with Sergei Ivanov, the Chief of the Presidential Administration, taking over the PM seat from Dmitry Medvedev, after which Putin himself will be ousted.
