It appears that the rumors were correct. Vladimir Putin is seriously ill.
We’ve been wondering for a long if he’s been suffering from some form of cognitive impairment as a result of an illness, and it appears that we finally have an answer.
According to reports, Russian President Vladimir Putin is battling cancer and will give over power to one of his close associates, Nikolai Patrushev….temporarily that is.
Patrushev is the head of the Security Council of the Russian Federal Police. Putin will place him in control of the country while he undergoes surgery to remove his cancer.
This report isn’t fully confirmed, but according to a video that is supposedly run by a former Russian Foreign Intelligence Service lieutenant general, it’s the truth.
“Putin is unlikely to agree to hand over power for a longer period of time,” the narrator of the video states, adding that the control of the country will likely be in Patrushev’s hands for no more than two to three days.
“I will say that this is the worst option,” the narrator adds. “Patrushev is an outright villain. He is no better than Vladimir Putin. Moreover, he is a more cunning, and I would say, more insidious person than Vladimir Putin. If he comes to power, Russians’ problems will only multiply.”
“Viktor Mikhailovich” ominously hinted that he and his allies “will make certain efforts so this does not happen, and I hope we will succeed.”
So, this just leads us to further suspicion about one of our theories of Putin’s invasion of Ukraine. Maybe this was his one last hurrah in case he didn’t make it through the surgery or in case he died from the cancer too soon. Maybe he wanted to go down in history as the one who tried to bring the sheep (Ukraine) back into the fold.
