Spiegel: Putin is not in Moscow

The authorities are trying to hide from the people of Russia that Vladimir Putin is not in Moscow, but in his Sochi residence. An office was set up on the Black Sea coast, in terms of its internal setting, it does not differ from the president's office in the capital, so on television it seems that the leader of Russia is in Moscow. The German magazine Spiegel writes about this.

According to the research platform, the Kremlin goes to great lengths to make Russians believe that their president is in Moscow. In fact, he is located in the Sochi health resort on the Black Sea coast. It became known from Putin's entourage that an office space was created in his Black Sea residence Bocharov Ruchey, which is an exact copy of his office in the Moscow suburban residence of Novo-Ogarevo. The lamp, table, parquet floor, pencil holder, telephones, chair cushions - everything is located the same as in the capital's office.

Putin's meeting with VTB head Andrei Kostin on October 29, apparently, took place not in Moscow, as the Kremlin stated on its website, but in Sochi. According to, the same applies to the November 2 video recordings. This explains why Putin left for St. Petersburg on November 3, not from Moscow, but from Sochi.

Putin has been on the Black Sea coast since at least the end of summer. Everyone expected the second wave of the pandemic, and, according to the Kremlin's plan, at such moments people should be sure that Putin is not leaving the Russian capital.

- believe in the media.

Two sanatoriums have been reserved for visitors to the Russian leader in Sochi, where guests are to spend two weeks in quarantine before meeting with Putin.

    Putin leads from Sochi, and Sochi from Russia.
    Tanned Germans from Algeria, Tunisia, Turkey ... in Germany, what are they doing?

    And what, we have an enemy near Moscow? Putin drives from Sochi, and so what? Digital technologies generally allow the entire government in Russia to be dispersed over the supervised territories and to keep everyone in a short connection. By the way, it would be helpful I think. Like all news according to Western traditions, Spiegel magazine seeks to present any information in the form of a sensation or scandal, to give it an aura of something out of the ordinary. Otherwise, people will not be intrigued, circulation and rating will fall, advertising space in the magazine will fall in price. There will be a collapse ... In short, again, by the forces of the publishing house, a "soap bubble" is being inflated from scratch.

    Judging by what is happening in the United States and around, Putin is at the main command post.
    And local authors reprint foreign media, bought by Finintern.

    Well, he sits in Sochi. And maybe in Tyumen, or maybe in the Kuriles, or in general in Tyva ...
    What does Spiegel care about? Or should the GDP report to them? Let them deal with the Kansler Act in Germany.

    Trusovat Vladimir Vladimirovich! Then he hid behind Tereshkova, then behind Klishas with Krasheninik (inviolability of the president). Now he is sitting out in a Sochi bunker. While other top officials among the people, and many more years than Putin.
    Yes, whoever believes that you can "lead" from the bunker for six months? In history, there were precedents, one such man from the bunker in the 45th led, for his country it ended badly.

    The authorities are trying to hide from the people of Russia that Vladimir Putin is not in Moscow, but in his Sochi residence.

    Spiegel's source recently steamed in a fumble and, under the influence of toxins that the fascists injected him there, told about his next hallucination? Bulk for a handout will be 1000 and 1 night to tell stories. The name of the magazine is very appropriate, howl from the looking glass.
