Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu was last seen 13 days ago, according to news reports. The last news update on Putin's defense ministry was dated March 11, after Shoigu handed out awards to Russian soldiers who had “distinguished themselves in the special military operation." Russian journalist Dmitry Treschanin questions whether or not Shoigu was in Chernobaevka, a small village located outside of Kherson, the first major Ukrainian city to be occupied by Russian forces on March 2.

The head of Russia’s General Staff, Valery Gerasimov, has also vanished from the public eye as Russia continues to suffer more and more casualties as the war efforts continue.

Shoigu has been described as a "highly active" figure in Russian media, referring to his ability to come across well in public relations as his “main weapon.” This makes his sudden disappearing act during Russia’s largest conflict since the Cold War perplexing, to say the least.

His absence from the public comes as NATO is preparing to hold a major summit to discuss their options in regard to the Russian/Ukrainian conflict.

Many worry that if any nation in relation of NATO dispatched military efforts, such as Ukraine's call for a "No-Fly Zone," it would lead to a full-blown World War 3. The US-led military alliance are trying to avoid that outcome at all cost.
