No matter what has happened or not happened to President Putin, so it seems when looking at data that are not originating in Ukraine (usually someone from Svoboda that ”pops” up as the original source) or in Lithuania,
as if something worse than the Russian military pushed through with high former generals in the Duma good memory during the Christmas holidays has happened or is about to happen in Moscow
While Russia analysts such as Robert Coalson (“Three Scenarios for a Succession“), Tom Nichols (“If Putin Dies”), Paul Goble (“Interregnum“) and Anders Aslund have theorized that some kind of change of government could be coming with Putin ill or sidelined, they say no one has any proof and can only go by their instincts as old Kremlinologists and wait for the story to unfold. Whether the ruler who comes after Putin would be from “the party of war” or the “party of peace” or neither, definitively, there is not likely to be any immediate relief from the war in Ukraine, as fighting continues with serious encroachment on the area north of the sea port of Mariupol, as our Ukraine Live blog has reported.
Here’s a list of all the developments we think are significant — or just odd — some of them unverified reports — to see if the pieces can be fit together: Russia this week: All the strange things going on in Moscow, Catherine A. Fitzpatrick the Interpreter March 14 2015 List a lot of leading persons missing or ”removed”
in the comments below one interesting twitter is translated to English:

Most people never heard of Konstantin Remchukov. He is the editor in chief of Nezavisimaya Gazeta a Russian daily newspaper. There are other interesting ”information” in the article.
No matter what is going on in Russia, something is happening or about to happen. It looks to me as if the Russian Military might have tried to take over the power one way or an other. They doesn’t seem to have had everything going their way. They might need Putin to be able to succed….
It’s possible that what ever happened there have been a backlasch they hadn’t considered. Russia in 2015 isn’t Sovjet up to 1989. Lot’s of water flooded under bridges….
Please note the abscence of comments from US, English, French and German leading politicians.
