Ukraine: Vladimir Putin has cancer and his life is in risk
Rumored denials of Putin’s cancer battle have dominated Russian media for some weeks now. His condition was described as critical, and he reportedly underwent emergency surgery. Rumors concerning his health continued to grow when he was absent from a regular ice hockey game on Wednesday.
Officials in the Ukrainian government have been saying for months that Vladimir Putin is ill, but the head of the Russian military intelligence has stated that he may be dying. To discuss the conflict between his country and Russia, Major General Kyrylo Budanov recently agreed to an interview with Sky News. He believes that by the end of August, all hostilities will be over.
But the most alarming revelation was concerning Vladimir Putin’s health and the fact that a coup is already taking place in Russia, which was revealed. “Vladimir Putin is in very bad psychological and physical condition and he is very sick. He has cancer and other illnesses. It’s my job, it’s my work, if not me, who will know this?
“Russia already suffered heavy losses in manpower and armour and I can say that when the artillery strikes happened, many of the crews abandoned their equipment. This defeat will eventually lead to the change of leadership of the Russian Federation. This process has already been launched and they are moving into that way. A coup is underway. They are moving in this way and it is impossible to stop it.”
There is no way to know for sure if Vladimir Putin is ill since the Russian government is so secretive. All we have is the chief of Ukrainian military intelligence’s information, which is already significant. The Russian government’s media machine will continue to reject any connection between Vladimir Putin’s health and his presidency.
No one will know for sure until Putin passes away from illness or the Russians conduct a takeover of power. If Budanov’s claims are true, Vladimir Putin’s time as Russia’s president may be drawing to a conclusion. There are other Russians who hold similar views as well, and the next Russian leader has the authority to make problems worse if they so want.
