Medvedev as Putin in the place of Putin

Dmitry Medvedev is to be inaugurated as Russia‘s third president since the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991.

The Kremlin Palace ceremony will begin at midday in front of 2,400 invited guests. For the 42-year-old father of one, the inauguration will cap a sharp ascendance from obscurity.

But while Vladimir Putin is handing over the reins of power, his central role in the ceremony will reflect the part he has to play in Russia’s future. Analysts suggest Mr. Putin, 55, will be a pivotal figure in Mr. Medvedev’s administration after he assumes his new post of prime minister, possibly as early as Thursday.

And what will happen to Putin, where the emperor will be? The puppeteer!!!
