Vladimir Putin’s state of health does not stop talking. Since he decided to invade Ukraine by launching a ruthless war against the people of Volodymyr Zelensky, the President of the Russian Federation has been strongly criticized. But not only on this decision: many observers and specialists have assured that a severe illness made him make ruthless decisions.
This is particularly the case of Sir Richard Dearlove, former head of MI6, the British intelligence services. In a recent statement, the latter indicated that Vladimir Putin was going to be sent to a nursing home specializing in chronic diseases in order to avoid subjecting him to a coup d’etat. And this from next year. Some reports suggest that the Russian head of state is suffering from cancer, Parkinson’s disease, or dementia praecox.
“Putin’s mental and physical state is rapidly falling apart”
It was during the podcast entitled “One decision” that the former head of the British secret service declared that Vladimir Putin would soon leave his post in order to receive appropriate medical treatment. “I think he will be gone by 2023, to a sanatorium from which he will not come out as the leader of Russia. It will be a way to get things done in Russia without needing a military coup,” said Richard Dearlove.
The latter also revealed that there were “very strange photos of Putin” and described as “very bizarre” the way he “bumped his leg during a recent official meeting”. For the former head of MI6, “there can be no doubt that the conflict in Ukraine is a real disaster and that over the next year Putin’s mental and physical state would fall apart”.
