Concerns over the health of the 70-year-old Russian leader have been widely reported, with Western intelligence agencies indicating that Putin may be experiencing major health problems.
Russian President Vladimir Putin has Parkinson's disease and pancreatic cancer, according to leaked intelligence documents.
The health of the 70-year-old Russian leader has long been a topic of conjecture, with Western intelligence indicating that he may have major problems. For years, rumours have circulated about the president's health, and it has been speculated that he has a staff of doctors who closely track his condition.
Former head of MI6 Sir Richard Dearlove is only one Western figure who has made assertions regarding Putin's health, predicting that the Russian leader will be taken to a sanatorium and gone by 2023.
There have been rumours that the dictator has cancer and is in excruciating pain; a recent photo shows what appear to be track marks from IV treatment on the back of his hand. The UK Sun has learned exclusively that a Russian intelligence source with ties to the Kremlin emailed a confirmation that Putin has been diagnosed with early-stage Parkinson's disease and pancreatic cancer.
"I can confirm he has been diagnosed with early stage Parkinson's disease, but it's already developing," the Russian security services source wrote in the email.
This truth will be covered up and concealed in whatever manner imaginable.
To slow the progression of the pancreatic cancer he was just diagnosed with, Putin has been receiving frequent injections of powerful steroids and novel painkillers.
"Putin has a state of puffiness of the face and other adverse effects, including memory lapses, in addition to the discomfort it causes."
There are rumours among his inner circle that Putin has prostate cancer in addition to the slowly growing pancreatic disease.
The Kremlin has consistently denied their leader has any health issues.
Putin has always taken pleasure in his "strongman" image, so his remarkable transformation in recent years has sparked concerns that he may be ill.
During his public appearances during the conflict in Ukraine, he has appeared to be out of breath, stutter, or be completely tired.
During a ceremony in Moscow's Red Square last month celebrating the violation of international law to annex four areas of Ukraine, Putin appeared to be in obvious discomfort.
The ailing autocrat's crimson complexion and puffy cheeks gave him a crazy appearance.
Valery Solovey, a political analyst, has claimed that Putin has multiple major diseases, including cancer, Parkinson's disease, and schizoaffective disorder.
According to Solovey, the dictator's health "is deteriorating... significantly," and he believes the war is going poorly because of his illness.
