Vladimir Putin seems to cling to the table

Vladimir Putin was seen clutching a table, crouching and repeatedly tapping his leg – sparking rumors that he has Parkinson’s.

The plump Russian president looked “weak and could barely keep himself upright” as he gave orders regarding the invasion of Mariupol.

He looked distracted and in pain as he told Sergei Shoigu to block the Azovstal steel mills “so that not a single fly can escape”.

Up to 2,000 soldiers and civilians, including children, sought refuge at the factory, which had a series of underground tunnels and basements.

Western intelligence believes that Putin is not a healthy person amid speculation that he contracted a serious illness when he launched the war in Ukraine.

Parkinson’s is the latest theory that follows another that he battled cancer with a thyroid oncologist for the elderly.

Putin did not display his usual bravery in his latest appearance, which is one of the most shocking to date.

A video of the event showed the elderly Kremlin leader sitting down in a chair and tapping both feet during the 12-minute meeting.

He appeared with a puffy face and held on to the corner of the table the whole time with his thumb twitching above his head.

However, Russian officials have denied there is anything wrong with Putin’s 70th birthday in October.

One body language expert explained that a well-built president “wouldn’t need to hold himself up with an outstretched hand for leverage” and that “both feet are on the ground. “

Professor Erik Bucy, from Texas Tech University, told Sun Online : “It’s an amazingly weakened Putin compared to the man we observed a few years ago.

“This is not a portrait of a healthy Putin but a man whose appearance is increasingly frail and can barely stand upright on a small conference table.”

Professor Bucy compared the look to Richard Nixon’s frail demeanor during the presidential debate against JFK in 1960 while he was recovering from a knee injury.

The expert also recognized Putin’s “quite thin” legs and “fluffy” face – which could indicate that he is losing weight or losing muscle due to an unproven disease.

Putin also appeared to avoid eye contact with Shoigu as he appeared to be fearful, annoyed and lacking in confidence, he added.

The Kremlin leader ordered his army to blockade the Mariupol steel plant “so that not a single fly can escape”.



University of Arkansas professor Patrick Stewart echoed his comments on Putin’s slapping action, calling it a “leakage” as the politician tries to control what could be involuntary movement. .

It has long been suggested that Vladimir Putin is hiding medical problems from his people.

Previous reports suggested that the 69-year-old man was being monitored by a thyroid oncologist among the “old, frail” people named Yevgeny Selivanov.

The surgeon of the Moscow Central Clinical Hospital flew to see Putin at least 35 times at the Black Sea resort of Sochi.

Putin seems to have kept his public appearances to a minimum with another recent meeting that included a conference call with the Security Council in March.

Senior figures from Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the UK and the US have also theorized that Putin is suffering from cancer and that medical treatment has altered the balance in his mind.

While therapists recently suggested that his decision to avoid nearly all contact since the start of the pandemic brought “signs of psychosis and personality disorder.”

The reclusive dictator has been self-isolating since March 2020, making only occasional appearances.

Leading psychotherapist Noel McDermott told Express Online this may have caused “irreparable” damage and that the cuts may have been a factor in his decision to invade Ukraine.

Sources claim that he currently lives in a huge underground city protected from potential attacks.
