Putin ‘to have cancer surgery ANY DAY and will use lookalike’ insiders claim
MAD VLAD is to have “surgery” for Cancer “sooner rather than later” and is prepared to use body doubles for public appearances to hide his health crisis from his brainwashed public, it has been claimed.
Claims on anti-Kremlin Telegram Channel General SVR allege bizarre use of lookalikes would preserve appearances that Putin remains in full control of Russia.
In the post, the channel claims that canned footage had been made of Putin’s meetings and signing of decrees in a “cover-up” to make it seem that he is working.
The Kremlin is known to have used similar dirty tactics in the past.
The Telegram channel claimed: “The president’s movements, if necessary, will be imitated by one of the two lookalikes.
“The possibility of a lookalike walking in public has been prepared. Everything is basically ready.”
In an earlier post this week, the channel also alleged ”Putin has been in a depressed mood” as he makes “preparations for his forthcoming surgery”.
The anti-Putin channel – which says it got “intelligence” from exiled a Kremlin lieutenant-general insider known by the alias Viktor Mikhailovich – is “due to take place in the foreseeable future”.
It adds: “The time [of the surgery] has already been determined.”
The channel went as far as to claim the surgery “will take place at night beginning between 1:00am and 2:00am, with the date still being determined”.
“It should be understood that doctors insist on having the surgery carried out sooner rather than later”, it claimed.
But in an extraordinary claim Thursday, the channel suggested “all medical personnel will be on duty starting from tonight”,
“How quickly the president will recover and be able to fully perform his functions is a big question”, it added.
The channel first made allegations Mad Vlad had serious health issues over 18 months ago.
The tyrant could be out of action for between two and ten days following the alleged surgery, the channel added.
General SVR claims to be linked to political analyst Professor Valery Solovey – who has claimed detailed knowledge of Putin’s alleged health issues, purportedly including cancer and early Parkinson’s disease.
Solovey also claims the dictator has a schizoaffective disorder, although the claims have not been independently verified.
The claims follow rampant speculation about how ill Putin could be.
Putin this week flew to Sochi, where several sources say he is receiving treatment for cancer.
It comes as he failed to take part in the annual Night Hockey League National Festival gala match in Sochi on May 10, a decision which triggered a raft of new health speculation.
He was also pictured covering himself with a blanket at Russia’s Victory Day Parade on Monday 9 May.
Fiona Hill, the British former senior White House expert on Russia, told Politico: “Putin’s not looking so great, he’s been rather puffy-faced.”
Hill also added that it is known that the 69-year-old has back issues but it could be “something worse”.
Meanwhile lawyer Mark Feigin, an ex-Russian MP, suggested that an investigation by opposition media Proekt shows Putin was regularly surrounded by several dozen doctors.
The Telegram channel repeated an earlier claim that a the tyrant could entrusting the country to former hard nut KGB officer Nikolai Patrushev, 70, while he is incapacitated.
Patrushev, the secretary of the powerful security council, is a key architect of the Ukrainian war strategy and convinced Mad Vlad that Kyiv was awash with neoNazis, a totally false claim.
