Rumors about the 70-year-old Vladimir Putin’s health in October are vicious, harsh and verifiable.
They explain that as he leads the bloody war in Ukraine, and as a result shapes the future of Europe, an important aspect of the Russian president’s health is that his absence is minimal.

Recently, the weekly magazine Newsweek, Citing U.S. intelligence sources, said he was being treated for advanced stage cancer in April. The US National Security Council has denied the allegations.
General Kirillo Budanov, the head of Ukraine’s intelligence service, told Sky News that Putin had cancer.
In the fall of 2012, when the Russian leader disappeared from public view and canceled meetings, the Kremlin confirmed the first and only health problem. The Kremlin later reported muscle spasms and a Russian newspaper reported problems with the spine.
According to the Proekt website, major health problems appeared during this period. The COVID-19 epidemic triggered the Russian president’s bizarre behavior, which, according to observers, reflects his paranoia.
Officially, the head of state has been vaccinated, but, unlike most of his colleagues on the planet, no picture has yet been released of him receiving the dose.

What does the Kremlin say?
Spokesman Dmitry Peskov has always denied the allegations. “I do not believe anyone with all his senses can see any sign of illness or disease in this person (Putin),” Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov told the channel at the end of May. French TF1.
Putin’s ally, Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko, did the same in an interview with Japanese television in March. “If you think something is wrong with President Putin, you are the most pathetic person in the world.”
In recent appearances, including a forum on Peter the Great and an interview with Turkmen President Serdar Fertimugamotov, the Russian head of state did not really show signs of weakness.
Why is this important?
