The Russian leader’s health appears to have deteriorated in recent months, with claims he is battling blood, thyroid or abdominal cancer and suspected he has early-stage Parkinson’s disease.

Ailing Vladimir Putin will be “inoperable” and replaced in a coup within three months, says an ex-MI6 spy.

The Russian leader’s health appears to have deteriorated in recent months, with claims he is battling blood, thyroid or abdominal cancer and suspected he has early-stage Parkinson’s disease.

Now former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele says Putin may have just months to live and says there are already signs he is in poor health.

He told BBC Radio 4’s The World at One Show: “I don’t see him [Putin] be in power for more than three to six months from now,” Steele said.

“There are signs his health is declining initially, which will be a factor in that.

“And if what we’re being told by the CIA and others and our own sources is true, then it looks like he could become incapacitated over such a period.

“This is a strong man’s regime where people have to be afraid of the leader and if the leader is medically incapacitated then action will be taken against him I’m sure.”

It comes after Putin abruptly postponed a marathon-standard live TV show in which he takes questions from ordinary Russians.

One theory is that he fears hostile interrogation because of the war in Ukraine. Another reason is that there could be concerns about the 69-year-old president’s health and his ability to watch TV for the usual three to four hours straight, reports say The sun.

The Direct Line to Vladimir Putin event has taken place in June for four of the last five years, with the exception of the first Covid-19 pandemic summer of 2020, when it took place in December.

The sudden delay came as a surprise, given that five days ago it was announced that it would take place in the “foreseeable future,” shortly after the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum, which ends on June 18.

Its spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, said the date it will take place is “unknown” and not in June.

The Q&A has run annually during Putin’s presidency since 2001, with the exception of 2004 and 2012. Millions of questions can be submitted, and Putin often answers around 70 in detail.

No reason was given for the delay, and Peskov indicated it would take place at a later date. But the postponement also comes amid rumors that Putin’s health is deteriorating.

Some sources credible in the West say he underwent cancer treatment during the war.

The Kremlin says its health is robust, and Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov recently denied that Putin is ill.

On June 3, Peskov was quoted as saying, “We expect it to happen in the foreseeable future.”

He pointed out that the Direct Line would take place shortly after June 18th. He said: “The Direct Line cannot take place this month. From a technical and content point of view, this is a complex event.

“The current preparations are underway. But it will move to the final stages once the deadlines are set.”
