Russian President Vladimir Putin did not appear on TV at either 8:00 p.m., 9:00 p.m., or 10:00 p.m. on Tuesday, despite announcements on Russian news portals and television channels about an upcoming address by the head of state to the nation.

Instead of Putin, First Channel aired a series and changed its program to honor the memory of actor and pro-Kremlin agitator Sergei Puskepalis, who died on Tuesday. Puskepalis, who starred in a number of patriotic and military series and is half Bulgarian (his mother is Bulgarian), died in a road accident while driving for the Donetsk separatists in a van bought with the donation.

Initially, the Russian leader was expected to speak at 20:00, but as the expected start approached, information appeared on social networks that the statement was delayed by an hour. Propaganda RT had a tape in “Wait” mode, but shortly before 22:00 Dmitry Gordon announced on his channel that “Rasha” had taken down the announcement and added that the official First Channel had also done the same.

According to the Russian media, the journalists from the Kremlin pool also had no contact with Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov, who did not answer his phone for hours on Tuesday evening.

“The statement of the President of the Russian Federation, Vladimir Putin, which was expected by the whole civilized world (no exaggeration) has been postponed until tomorrow,” said Sergei Markov, a political scientist close to the Kremlin.

With a red exclamation point in front and behind, Kremlin propagandist Vladimir Solovyov also wrote in his Telegram channel !Tomorrow! (tomorrow).

Earlier on Tuesday evening, in parallel with the announcement of Putin’s address, there was news that French President Emmanuel Macron had requested an urgent telephone conversation with Putin. According to unofficial information, the conversation was refused by the Kremlin, and Macron himself said that he hoped to speak with the Russian leader in the coming days.

According to media speculation, Putin was expected to make a statement this evening regarding the previously announced intentions of Kherson, Luhansk, Donetsk and Zaporizhia to speed up the pseudo-referendums on joining the Russian Federation in the occupied Ukrainian territories. He was also expected to announce full or partial mobilization. The publicist programs of the First Channel, RT, Russia 24 and Russia 1 also warmed up the audience for this.

Late in the evening, the chairman of the State Duma Committee on Defense, Andrey Kartapolov, announced that there would be no general mobilization. He admitted that martial law could be declared in individual places, giving Stavropol as an example.
