He is convinced that the Russian president is ill – among other things, he is said to have cancer and Parkinson’s.
Here is a picture from 2007: Putin likes to be a tough man. Such pictures of the Russian president have not been seen for a long time.
Rumors have been going around in Moscow for weeks about a possible resignation of Russian President Vladimir Putin (68). The Kremlin denies everything. For the Russian historian and Putin critic Valery Solowej (60) it is clear: “Vladimir Putin wants to announce his plans for the transit of power in January,” Solowej said in an interview with the Echo Moskvy broadcaster.
Rumors about presidents: Will Putin step down in January because of Parkinson’s?(00:48)
The reason for the resignation: Putin is said to be seriously ill. As the German “Tagesschau” reports, Solowej refers, among other things, to the Telegram channel “General SWR” – this is supposed to be run by ex-secret service agents. There it says in a post that Putin is being treated with drugs against Parkinson’s. And: He gets antidepressants and is undergoing cancer therapy.
Rarely in public
But there are other indications that would point to Putin’s resignation: For weeks, for example, state television has repeatedly been showing reviews of Putin’s years in power – including his best jokes, never shown pictures from his private archive and rare pictures from the Kremlin.
A new law on the immunity of the president and his family after the end of his term of office should also indicate his upcoming resignation. In addition, Putin is currently relatively rarely in public. When the “Night Hockey League” started in Moscow on Saturday, Putin was not among the guests. He just sent a greeting, as the “Frankfurter Rundschau” writes. This despite the fact that he has played regularly in the celebrity league himself since 2011.
From autism to thyroid cancer
However, many doubt Solowej’s claims. Because there is still no concrete evidence for one of the alleged diseases. Nor is it the first time that Vladimir Putin has been said to have had a serious illness: from spinal damage to thyroid cancer, the Russian president has been diagnosed with many diseases from afar.
In 2008, US intelligence agencies even speculated that Putin might suffer from an autistic disorder – Asperger’s Syndrome. The US intelligence services saw the evidence of this in a report by a researcher who analyzed Putin’s videos. (bra)
