The Kremlin has denied all reports about their leader’s health.
Vladimir Putin is not the most mentally healthy person in the world at the moment and that is no secret. His lack of empathy since the beginning of this war is more characteristic of an unfeeling tyrant than of a person belonging to this century.
Now, beyond his psychological problems, of which there appear to be many, there have been theories for weeks about his state of health on a more physiological level, hearing crude words such as cancer surround him.
To what extent is this true? According to several Russian media outlets such as Proekt, which is totally censored by the Russian government, the Kremlin leader has been suffering for years from thyroid cancer and another serious illness.
In support of this thesis, the media outlet has provided several documents, including numerous visits by specialised doctors to his house on the Black Sea.
According to sources in the media, the Russian president has been treated for years for both the aforementioned thyroid cancer and for Parkinson’s disease. These two illnesses have kept him somewhat out of the public eye in recent times, despite the firmness of his decisions, which are being delegated to his core representatives and advisors.
Thus, Proekt claims that Putin has been visited on up to 35 occasions by Russian health specialists, including ear, nose and throat specialists, and Yevgeny Selivanov, a surgeon.
Two years ago at a televised meeting, Putin suffered a severe coughing fit that prevented him from catching his breath for more than a minute. A fact that did not go unnoticed because at the same event, the Russian leader publicly showed interest in thyroid cancer. Coincidence? Maybe not.
On the other hand, Valery Solovey, former head of the Public Relations Department of the Moscow State Institute of International Relations, declared last February that Putin “could have symptoms compatible” with both thyroid cancer and Parkinson’s disease.
Despite all these well-founded theories, the Kremlin continue to refute any scenario or reality that undermines its leader.
Moreover, Dmitry Peskov himself, the Kremlin’s press secretary, has recently come out to deny all reports on the matter, assuring that the Russian leader’s health is “excellent”.
