Lord Dannatt told Sky News, “We talked a number of months ago about how healthy or not Vladimir Putin was. Keen observers now are noting that his hands are looking pretty black on top, which is a sign of injections going in when other parts of the body can’t take injections. It’s interesting to note that and just to watch whether he is as fit and well as he would like to portray, it’s an interesting area to keep an eye on.”
In addition to this, several US intelligence reports have suggested that Putin may be suffering from an advanced form of blood cancer. Earlier this year, an unnamed Russian Oligarch was recorded saying that Putin was “very ill with blood cancer”. According to a recording obtained by US magazine New Lines, the oligarch was heard discussing Putin’s health with a western venture capitalist and also said that Putin had undergone surgery shortly before he ordered the invasion of Ukraine.
While the health of the Russian President has been widely discussed and speculated upon in recent times, some have claimed that the President is already dead. Supporting this theory the Ukraine defence ministry said that there might be a possibility that he might be a ‘hologram’.
They said: “It could be Putin, it could be the ‘collective Kremlin’, or it could be a hologram. Is there a possibility that this is ‘collective Putin’?
Adding that “There is a possibility that we haven’t seen the person we used to think of as Putin lately. This is a separate interesting subject of research and development. It is very important to understand that Putin is now a collective image, a regime, a certain collective system.”, the defence ministry said that there would retribution for all crimes, as reported by the DailyStar.
