As he enters what may be his final year in service, Russian President Vladimir Putin is reportedly receiving cancer treatment from Western doctors.
According to Russian historian and political commentator Valery Solovey, the 70-year-old leader is presumably being kept alive by Western medicines to prevent the cancer’s development amid a barrage of sanctions put on Putin, the Kremlin, and his regime.
Solovey told Ukrainian media,“I can say that without this [foreign] treatment he would definitely not have been in public life in the Russian Federation.”
Solovey claimed that “He uses the most advanced treatments, [and] target therapy which Russia cannot provide him with.”
“I would say that the treatment has been too successful,” Solovey added. “They have been treating him too well.”
Solovey asserted that “the end is already in sight, even according to the experts who are curating this treatment, because no medication can be endlessly successful,” even with the aid of Western medicine.
Since Russia’s unjustified invasion of Ukraine in February, there have been numerous reports alleging that Putin’s health is deteriorating. Putin is reportedly battling both Parkinson’s disease and pancreatic cancer.
As the war reaches its tenth month, rumors about the Russian president’s health are only becoming worse.
Russia has denied that Putin is unwell as the conflict with Ukraine continues.
According to emails that were leaked about the Russian strongman’s condition, a security services source stated, “I can confirm he has been diagnosed with early-stage Parkinson’s disease, but it’s already progressing.”
The Russian government, which prefers to portray its leader as strong, has denied that Putin has any diseases.
The Russian strongman allegedly soiled himself earlier this month after falling down five steps in his house, landing on his tailbone. The severe fall forced him to “involuntarily defecate,” according to reports, even though his security crew hurried to his side. The Kremlin later denied these claims.
