The Daily Star reports a surprising report as testimony from an official of MI6, the country’s intelligence agency.
[President Putin] may already be dead. It is impossible to know exactly, but President Putin used body doubles in the past when he was not feeling well. Now, he appears to be making similar moves.
M16 is not the only one who has pointed out the extreme unusual behavior of Russian President Vladimir Putin. A number of important figures from various countries have also voiced their suspicions that Putin is a body double.
“He looks like a completely different person than he did three years ago. He is stubborn and isolated,” said French President Macron.
“His instability has increased dramatically. I can only think of him as a completely different person than before” (Michael McFaul, former U.S. ambassador to Russia).
35 visits by thyroid specialists
Itsuro Nakamura, a professor at Tsukuba Gakuin University and an expert on the situation in Russia, said, “Like other high-ranking officials in other countries, I am also aware of the current situation in Russia.
“Like other high-ranking officials around the world, I get the impression that Vladimir Putin is a completely different person today than he used to be. His face has become stiff and expressionless. The most symbolic example of this was when he met with Belarusian President Lukashenko in February of this year. Putin’s hands were around in a circle and he was clutching the armrests of his chair tightly. He was wiggling his toes and was clearly restless.”
Although the veracity of the deaths is not certain, there seems to be no doubt that he is worried about his health.
“Proekt, an independent Russian media outlet, has obtained a record of activities concerning President Putin. According to the media report published in April of this year, a thyroid specialist visited the president 35 times during the four-year period from 2016 to 2020. During the period when he stopped appearing in public in September of last year, they reported that he may have undergone surgery for thyroid cancer.”
Nakamura continues, “I think the reports are quite credible. Proekt is a media outlet with a reputation for calm, factual, investigative reporting that is neither pro-regime nor exclusively critical. It also reveals in detail the names and titles of the doctors. There is no doubt that Vladimir Putin has some kind of thyroid abnormality.”
If he had a serious health problem, there is no way he would be able to run a major power like Russia. Especially now that the country is in conflict with Ukraine. Richard Dearlove, former director of MI6, has told several media outlets, including the New York Post, that he expects Putin to lose his post. He says that there are plans for a coup d’etat in Russia. Nakamura’s prediction.
The FSB, which was established in August 1991 by then President Mikhail Gorbachev, is the most likely party to stage a coup d’état. The FSB is the successor to the KGB, which launched a coup against then-President Mikhail Gorbachev in August 1991. It is President Vladimir Putin’s home country and has a lot of state secrets. If President Putin is ousted, FSB Director Boltnikov will take over.
“If a coup were to take place, it would most likely be in September. President Putin usually vacations in southern Sochi and the Siberian Mountains at the same time each year. This is because he will be away from Moscow, the capital, and will be open to being taken advantage of.”
President Putin has been struggling in Ukraine and there were also rumor of a coup d’état. He seems to be even more pressured by the spread of rumors about his failing health both at home and abroad.
