Top oligarch is secretly recorded saying Putin ‘has blood cancer’ Vladimir Putin is ‘very ill with blood cancer’, a Russian oligarch has claimed according to a new report, amid on-going speculation about the strongman’s health. An audio recording of the oligarch’s comments was obtained by a Western venture capitalist and shared with New Lines magazine, the publication said. In it, the oligarch – who has close ties to the Kremlin and named only as ‘Yuri’ to protect his identity – claimed a number of the health problems Putin is believed to be suffering from are linked to him having blood cancer. One example given was Putin’s lower back problems, New Lines reported. The Russian tyrant underwent surgery on his back in October 2021, just a few months before he ordered the invasion of Ukraine on February 24. Other examples cited by the magazine included Putin’s increasingly puffy face – a possible indicator of steroid use in his recovery – and the fact that he appears to be walking with a limp. Other sources have claimed in recent months that Putin, 69, is suffering from Parkinson’s. He has been seen in public less frequently than normal, and when he is shown on television, his appearances are heavily curated. But despite the Kremlin being scrupulous with what footage of Putin is released to the public, there have been a number of signs that he is unwell. On Monday, Putin gave a speech during Moscow’s Victory Day parade – an annual event Russia celebrates to mark the end of its involvement in the Second World War. Putin was shown awkwardly walking through Red Square – possibly to hide a limp. He was also seen with a blanket across his lap as he watched the proceedings, despite Moscow that day being a relatively mild 48 Fahrenheit (9C). On April 22 he was seen meeting defence minister Sergei Shoigu, slumped in his seat at a comically small desk which he gripped like a vice for the whole conversion. In March, having delivered a speech at a large pro-war rally in Russia’s capital, Putin was filmed walking down a short flight of stairs putting more weight on his left leg. His right hand – the same that gripped the desk in April – has been shown shaking, while he was also seen clutching the armrest of a chair during a meeting with Belarusian dictator Alexander Lukashenko. In the build-up to the invasion of Ukraine, he held meetings with world leaders and other Russian military officials sat at either end of huge banquet-sized tables amid reports he was taking extra precautions over Covid-19. Individuals meeting Putin were required to be tested rigorously for Covid-19. Blood cancers – such as lymphoma or myeloma – are a cancer of plasma cells, and can cause pervasive bone disease. Speaking to New Lines, Ashley Grossman – a professor of endocrinology at Oxford University – said such diseases can affect the spine and back. What’s more, treatment for such diseases involve steroids, which can result in a puffy face, and chemotherapy, which results in hair loss. Putin is not known to be suffering from hair loss, but other blood cancers like Myeloma tend to not require chemotherapy. Myeloma can, however, lead to a compression in the spine. Treatments for such types of cancer also weaken a patient’s immune system, which could go some way to explaining Putin’s cautious approach to Covid distancing. The type of blood cancer Putin might be suffering from was not specified by the oligarch, who was secretly recorded by the unnamed venture capitalist. However, it was evident that ‘Yuri’ hold a level of disdain for Russia’s leader. ‘[Putin] absolutely ruined Russia’s economy, Ukraine’s economy and many other economies — ruined [them] absolutely,’ the oligarch said, according to New Lines. ‘The problem is with his head. … One crazy guy can turn the world upside down.’ He decried Putin for saying he was ‘trying to find Nazis and fascists’ as a pretext to invade Ukraine, and went on to say ‘we all hope’ the Russian leader dies of cancer, or from an internal hit-job by those closest to him. Yuri said he holds Putin personally accountable for the deaths of ‘more than 15,000 Russian soldiers and 4,000 or 5,000 civilians in Ukraine. It’s unbelievable. For what? He killed more people than in 10 years in the [Soviet] Afghan… #breakingnews #news #latestnews #00breakingnews #dailynews #25May2022 #May #2022Created by 00Breaking Newshttps://www.youtube.com/00breakingnewshttps://www.youtube.com/channel/UCcH6ibWROf18SVWqGTY9_Dg?sub_confirmation=1Join this channel to enjoy the privileges:https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCcH6ibWROf18SVWqGTY9_Dg/join
