Moscow: Speculation regarding the Russian President, Vladimir Putin’s, health has been in the air for some time. Its exact reality is unknown. But it can’t be totally denied. It means something has been going wrong with Putin’s overall fitness.
A Russian intelligence officer has revealed details regarding Russian President Vladimir Putin’s illness. Experts have given him just three years as he has been suffering from “a form of rapidly progressing cancer”.
The Federal Security Service (FSB) officer also made it clear that the 69-year-old president is losing his eyesight and suffering from headaches.
The FSB officer revealed the information about Putin’s rapidly worsening health to the former Russian spy, Boris Karpichkov, who has been living in the UK.
“We are told he is suffering from headaches and when he appears on TV he needs pieces of paper with everything written in huge letters to read what he’s going to say,” the Russian officer said.
“They are so big; each page can only hold a couple of sentences.” “His eyesight is seriously deteriorating,” the spy said, adding that Putin’s limbs are “now also shaking uncontrollably.”
Doctors have advised him that the surgery might make him defunct for a brief period to run the country and administration. During this period, he has to hand over his power to his aide.
Meanwhile, the Russian foreign minister, Sergey Lavrov, has denied rumours about Putin’s rapidly deteriorating health.
