Russian President Vladimir Putin has seemingly put an end to rumors over his health when he appeared publicly for the first time in 10 days. President Putin met with Kyrgyzstan President Almazbek Atambayev in Konstantinov’s Palace, near St. Petersburg. He joked about the rumors, saying life without gossip would be “boring”.
During the 10 days President Putin vanished from the public eye, there was speculation that he had an illness, there had been a coup in Russia, or that he had a lovechild. Some body experts still aren’t satisfied, saying the president looked “pale” during his meeting, and may still be ill.
