Vladimir Putin’s health problems as video shows Russian president “shaking uncontrollably”

A resurfaced video of Vladimir Putin “shaking uncontrollably” has sparked speculation that the Russian dictator is seriously ill.

A shaky Vladimir Putin sparked rumors that he has serious health problems after filming resurfaced that showed him shaking uncontrollably.

The hands of the Russian tyrant tremble violently in a clip showing him greeting Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko in the Kremlin, The sun relationships.

A weak-looking Putin – who has been haunted by claims that he has Parkinson’s disease or terminal cancer – holds out his shaking hand to greet Lukashenko before quickly retreating and walking around the room.

Putin looks unstable and bends at his knees as he walks to hug his Belarusian counterpart in undated footage viewed more than 1 million times.

It comes as a recent video of Putin biting his lip and fidgeting absently during a church service on Sunday, further fueling claims that the autocrat has a terminal illness.

Putin screamed as he clutched a candle near the altar during a midnight mass for Orthodox Easter.

They arrived days after the disheveled 69-year-old Putin was seen grabbing a table and stamping his foot in a video that Kremlin observers said showed a drastic drop in his physical condition.

On Sunday evening, he appeared less bloated than in recent weeks as he stood helpless in Moscow’s Christ the Savior Cathedral next to the city mayor Sergei Sobyanin.

Short TV footage showed few noticeable signs of the telltale tremors often associated with Parkinson’s.

But viewers saw the elderly autocrat who seemed to move uncomfortably, sticking out his tongue and chewing his lips.

He also looked up at the ceiling and floor during a mass led by his friend Patriarch Kirill, who supported his invasion of Ukraine.

At one point the president was seen to cross himself slowly, with the air of being very careful to control the movement.

He spoke only of joining the congregation with the answer “He is truly risen,” Reuters reports.

The public appearance came just days after Putin was shown on Russian TV giving orders to defense chief Sergei Shoigu during the siege of Mariupol.

Observers said the lone tyrant appeared “weak and barely able to stand” in his chair.

It has been one of his most shocking appearances yet, absent from his usual strongman swagger.

Putin looked disheveled, aching and distracted as he told Shoigu to block the Azovstal steel plant, where more than 1000 Ukrainian defenders and civilians are holed up, “so that a fly cannot enter.”

Experts said The sun the film “was not a portrait of a healthy Putin”.

Putin is seen in the video appearing with a swollen face as he slumps deeply in his chair.

His foot seems to be pounding constantly and his hand grabs the edge of the table.

The mad tyrant sits firmly on the table during the entire 12-minute match.

His toes are braced under the table while his thumb contracts on top and he spends most of the exchange tapping both feet.

Putin’s health has long been a source of rumors and speculation, but Western intelligence has been reported to believe Putin is not a healthy man.

Kremlin officials have always denied that there is anything wrong with their leader, who will turn 70 in October.

This was stated by Professor Erik Bucy, a body language expert at Texas Tech University The sun “He is a surprisingly weakened Putin compared to the man we observed even a few years ago.

“A skilled president wouldn’t need to stand with one hand out for leverage and wouldn’t bother with both feet planted on the ground.”

He used the example of when Richard Nixon appeared during the 1960 presidential debate against JFK.

The Republican appeared weak and had to brace himself as he recovered from a knee injury and exhaustion.

‘Involuntary movements’

“This is not a portrait of a sane Putin, but of one who appears increasingly weak and barely able to stand at a small conference table,” Bucy added.

“Putin’s legs also look rather thin, as if he might be suffering from weight or muscle loss from an unannounced illness.

“The swelling in the face reinforces an unhealthy appearance, especially compared to the photographs and videos of the Russian premiere a few years ago.”

He added that Putin also seems to avoid Shoigu’s gaze, appearing as an evasive, fearful, unconfident man who is uncomfortable.

Professor Patrick Stewart of the University of Arkansas also noted that Putin appeared very stressed and almost showed a “flight” response.

He also focused on his tapping feet, suggesting it was a “leak” as Putin tried to keep himself in check, with leg movements that may appear involuntary.

“The hands held under the table are in an almost pleading position, while holding the table is different from what I have seen previously – surely holding firmly on the podium is something we saw from Putin when he considered a stressful issue in front of the free press. ”, Said prof.

Some expert social media observers have also focused on Putin’s strange behavior in what may be one of the most significant appearances in his health to date.

Louise Mensch, a former Conservative MP who previously reported on Putin’s potential health problems, wrote: “Putin has Parkinson’s disease and here you can see him grabbing the table so that his shaking hand is not visible but not he can keep his foot from tapping. “

Health conundrum

It is not the first time that questions have been raised about the health of the Russian despot.

Experts have pointed out that Putin looks “bloated” and “weakened” in recent public appearances and has even been seen by a doctor who specializes in thyroid cancer.

The Proekt investigative media report – blocked in Russia – claims that surgeon Yevgeny Selivanov, of the Moscow Central Clinical Hospital, had flown to the Russian leader no less than 35 times to the Black Sea resort of Sochi.

The respected physician’s experience is thyroid cancer.

The finding supports recent theories that Putin declared war when he suffered from medical problems hidden from the Russian people.

In November 2020, political analyst Valery Solovei revealed the theory of cancer and Parkinson’s claiming that Putin also needed emergency surgery.

He said at the time of Putin’s health problems: “One is psycho-neurological in nature, the other is a cancer problem.

“If anyone is interested in the exact diagnosis, I am not a doctor and I have no ethical right to disclose these issues.

“The second diagnosis is much, much more dangerous than the first diagnosis as Parkinson’s does not threaten the physical state, it only limits public appearances.

“But there is a fatal diagnosis.

“On the basis of this information, people will be able to draw a conclusion about his life horizon, which would not even require specialized medical training.”

He added that the Russian president had undergone surgery with another source claiming it was an abdominal cancer operation.

Video footage showed Putin’s leg constantly moving and his fingers twitching, supporting the Parkinson’s theory.

Putin also had a coughing fit during a televised meeting, but claims about his health were disputed by the Kremlin.

The report continues to identify doctors who regularly travel with Putin away, especially to Sochi, which he prefers to Moscow.

Alongside Selivanov, the Russian leader is also followed by a neurosurgeon.

Another surgeon, Dr. Alexey Shcheglov, “follows Putin so relentlessly that during public events he allegedly gets joint photographs with the head of state.”

He is seen as “the doctor who, among other things, can be the first to detect thyroid problems, including oncological ones”, it is argued.
