Over the past few weeks, Russia has done everything in their power to deny that president Vladimir Putin has been battling cancer. There were reports he had to undergo an emergency surgery. Last Wednesday, he was absent from an ice hockey game he never misses and this fueled more rumors about his health issues.
Ukrainian officials have said for months that Putin is not well, but the chief of military intelligence was on record stating he could be dealing with a terminal disease. Major General Kyrylo Budanov just offered an interview on Sky News to talk about the war between his country and Russia. He predicts that all aggressions will come to an end by the month of August.
But the most shocking revelation was about Vladimir Putin’s health conditionand how a coup is already underway in Russia. This is what he said: “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.”
Is Vladimir Putin really sick?
Given how closed the Russian Government is right now, there is no true way of knowing if president Vladimir Putins is really sick. All we have is this information from the Ukrainian chief of military intelligence, which is already a big deal. Russia’s propaganda machine will keep on denying anything remotely related to their president health issues.
We won’t know anything for sure until either Putin dies from illness or the Russians stage their coup. If Budanov’s information is realiable, we could be nearing Vladimir Putin’s end as Russia’s president. However, he is not the only Russian who has these extreme beliefs and whoever takes power could make matters even worst if they choose to.
