Signs Vladimir Putin is ill as experts claim he has cancer

Speculation about the health of Vladimir Putin has continued amid more shocking incidents in the war in Ukraine occurring.

Reports over the health of the Russian leader have mounted up in recent months, with plenty speculating he has all sorts of illnesses, from cancer to Parkinson's.

It also means there are reports of FSB agents – Russia's secret service – and military generals waiting to oust the leader.

His decision to invade Ukraine caused outrage around the world and some confusion among many people following the devastating decision.

Since, allegations of disgusting war crimes and massacres have arisen, while millions have fled from their homes into neighbouring countries.

At the same time, a murderous dictator orders bombs to rain down on Ukrainian cities, killing thousands of innocents and reducing important buildings to mere rubble.

So is Putin ill?

Rumours about Vladimir Putin having Parkinson's disease have been around sinceat least 2020, when leading Russian analyst Professor Valery Solovei claimed the Kremlin was hiding his supposed illness.

Putin has repeatedly shown off some shaky looking hands during important events and has been caught on camera twitching.

In a meeting with Putin's political lapdog and leader of neighbouring Belarus Aleksandr Lukashenko, the Russian's hand appeared to shake uncontrollably before he greeted his fellow leader.

Visegrad24 published the footage and said the incident was "probably the clearest video of something being wrong with Putin’s health".

In April, Putin met with Russia's Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu and was seen clutching the table during the strategy discussion.

Former Tory MP Louise Mensch has said: Putin has Parkinson’s disease and here you can see him gripping the table so that his shaking hand is not visible but he cannot stop his foot from tapping."

The Parkinson's theory has led to some concern that Putin will act irrationally in his decision-making in Ukraine.

Does Putin have cancer?

Speculation that Vladimir Putin has cancer is common among some political analysts and military exerts, with some pointing to his bloated face as a sign.

Steroids is a common treatment for some cancers and this can make the face appear bloated and puffy. Putin has been seen in public on a number of locations looking a little more bloated than his usual self.

There is a theory that a thyroid cancer specialist follows the president after reports emerged from the website Proekt that said a specialist allegedly made 35 trips to see the president.

Reports of illness and cancer have been denied by the Kremlin.

Director of the Centre for Russia Europe Asia Studies (CREAS) Theresa Fallon told the Independent: "[Mr Putin] has always tried to emphasise his fitness and vigour, which is part of his brand.

"Illness does not fit with Putin’s strong man narrative that has been carefully cultivated over the years by the Kremlin. This makes me wonder if there is really something else going on behind the scenes."
