Day 11. The world continues to express concern and speculate about the where about and health of the Russian President Vladimir Putin who was last seen on 5th March, 2015.

His mysterious and mind bugling disappearance from public views, with cancelled schedules amid spirited denials by the president’s spokesman, Dmitry Peskov Putin and the State’s  television, comes at a highly tense period in Russia. It was just few weeks ago that the high profile Russian opposition figure, Boris Nemtsov, was brutally murdered. The assassination of Boris has since raised loud alarm bells and speculations across the political landscape of Russia.

While some have speculated that the president may be ill, it should be noted that a lot has to do with the image of Putin himself, and simply admitting the president may be ill is out of the question. Julia Ioffe in an analysis for The Washington Post said that “Putin’s carefully cultivated image rests on never showing weakness, which is crucial in the hypercompetitive Russia. If one shows some weakness, then one is all weakness — and therefore prey.”

Grave rumours have continued to make the rounds, with the gravest coming from no less personality than Zvi Magen, Israel’s former ambassador to Russia, who has gone as far as to suggest that there may be a coup underway led by “branches or factions in the army” and “wealthy businessmen,” he had told the Isreali News Daily, Haaretz.

While it may be hasty for any to throw his hat into the ring for Boris as per his integrity as a passionate world peace maker, the world, especially the global church should pray that these grave speculations remain mere speculations as there lingers far reaching grave global implications should he have been killed or “dethroned.” Who, behind the scenes, might be the writers of the these possibly sinister script?

Time to pray.
