Daily Puzzle 4/7/19

Hi CM Family, 

It looks to me like the puzzle for today has a dual : 

1. Kxe2! e3 (only move) 
2. Rf4 (or Rg4) Kb2 (only move) 
3. Rf1 Kxc3 
4. Kxe3 Kb2 
5. Kd2 and White will win the c-pawn and the game. 

This was the first move I looked at since it's a capture and missed the nice intended solution (will not spoil it).

Hey Anastasios!
Just wow! 
I have worked on by studies database with my students around 5 years already, and was removing all wrong ones. And that's fantastic, that still there are mistakes.
Thank you for letting me know, and not telling others the 2nd right way! :)

Maybe there is no White pawn on c3, or it's a black one !

Actually black pawn on c3 removes the dual I believe, so that was probably the intended puzzle.

Without pawn on c3, it would be possible, Ke2 e3 2. Ke3 Kd1 3. Bf3 and Rc4! (So without pawn would be wrong).
Initial puzzle was like this. 
I just make 1 more move on the puzzle, so it will be easier for you.
That's very strange, already around 10 of my students have solved this one, but no one of us noticed :)
