Russian President Vladimir Putin could be suffering from a terminal illness, according to reports citing a former intelligence officer who now works for the Pentagon.
“The unnamed source is claiming that Putin is suffering from terminal bowel cancer, with his ‘puffy face’ a sign he is enduring chemotherapy or on steroids,” YorkshireLive reported.
“The source says this diagnosis could have encouraged him to be more aggressive and attack Ukraine so he can leave a legacy knowing he is dying, The Daily Star reports,” the outlet said. “He added that analysts have been studying Putin who think he has a terminal illness.”
“In the past we have seen him smile, but in 2022 there are few pictures of him looking happy,” the source said. “His look suggests he is in pain and our people suggest his angry look is most likely as a result of him being in agony. Our people are confident he is ill – he is concerned about COVID as he keeps his staff at a distance.”
On February 24, Putin ordered his country to invade Ukraine. He has since put Russia’s nuclear deterrent forces on high alert and stoked fears of potential nuclear war.
The report comes shortly after retired British Royal Navy Admiral Chris Parry suggested Putin is “a man in a hurry,” and that a terminal illness could explain his decision to invade Ukraine.
“He has been using these very long tables to interview people. I think his immune system might be suppressed at the moment. So he is a man in a hurry,” Parry said.
