Vladimir Putin has pulled yet another disappearing act, with the Russian president having not been seen in public since July 1.

Putin was last seen in the flesh at a summit in Finland, but then began canceling a series of scheduled appearances, London's Independent reports.

Russian news outlet RBC tried to find out what was going on and was told Putin was on a "business trip." Exactly where was not disclosed.

The Kremlin has denied that Putin has canceled any appearances, and yet his latest no-show occurred on Wednesday when he blew off the opening ceremony of the VI International Sports Games for the Children of Asia.

There's nothing new about Putin vanishing into thin air — he did so back in March 2015.

His absence from public life always sparks a flurry of rumors: that he's died, is suffering from a bad back or is undergoing plastic surgery.

One wild story, according to the Independent, had Putin shacked up with a secret girlfriend who was giving birth to an alleged love child.
