与此同时,克里姆林宫发布了一张新照片,图上显示普京与最高法院院长维亚切斯拉夫•列别杰夫在其莫斯科外的居所新奥加廖沃进行会谈。

However, there were immediate claims the picture and TV footage was old, and that it was further evidence of his mystery absence.
evidence ['evɪd(ə)ns] n. 证据,证明;迹象;明显vt. 证明
 
 
然而,马上有人指出这张照片和电视片段都不是最新拍摄的。这使普京的“失踪”显得更扑朔迷离。
 
Current rumours in Mosco win clude Putin suffering a stroke, or an unfolding palace coup, following his sudden cancellation of a scheduled trip toKazakhstan.

就在整个莫斯科情绪沸扬之时,普京的前高级助理称一位前克格勃情报机关的间谍正遵照命令紧急接手他的工作。
 
The theory suggests the Kremlin's chief of staff Sergei Ivanov - a former defence minister - will become prime minister in place of the lacklustre Dmitry Medvedev.
 
此间有传言称前国防部部长——克林姆宫总参谋长伊万•诺夫将取代梅德韦杰夫成为新总理。
 
After this switch, dubbed a 'conspiracy of generals', Putin - currently the subject of swirling rumours over his health after not being seen in public for more than a week - 
 
would be swiftly ousted.
 
若这次“高级密谋”属实,那么“失踪”一周而陷入“生病”谣言漩涡的普京会迅速被免职。

against Ukrainethree weeks before it happened.

While the Kremlin insists Putin is healthy and in full control of his government, Illarionov claimed: 'In the next few days we should expect the resignation of prime minister 
 
Dmitry Medvedev, and Sergei Ivanov being appointed in his place.'
 
虽然克里姆林宫一直坚称普京“身体无恙”、“领导地位稳固”,但欧诺夫声称:“接下来的几天我们会看到梅德韦杰夫总理辞职,伊万诺夫上位成为新总理。”
 
After this, 'the public is likely to be informed that the national leader (Putin) needs a well deserved rest'.
 
之后,民众就会接到“国家领导人(普京)需要好好休息一下”的信息。
