Vladimir Putin’s elite security guards have quietly brought his feces home on trips abroad without causing a stench – fueling rumors he has a hidden illness.
The Russian President has cultivated the image of a manly and macho leader over the years, who is seen out hunting or riding bareback.
But in recent months he has been looking more frail and possibly bloated in the face, which some have suggested is due to the use of steroids for an ailment.
At Russia’s Victory Day Parade in Moscow last month, unlike others around him, Putin even used a blanket to keep warm.
And now news that Putin’s excrement is being taken home when he’s on trips abroad has led to speculation that Western powers might learn no signs of illness from his visit to the toilet.

The regime’s federal security service is said to have the unpleasant task of collecting his feces and keeping them under armed guard Paris matchciting experienced Russian reporters.
The feces will reportedly be bagged and placed in a briefcase for safe return to Russia.
In fact, this is not new and happened, for example, when Putin went to France in May 2017 or to Saudi Arabia in 2019, the magazine reported.
And former BBC reporter Farida Rustamova tweeted that Putin is traveling with a portable toilet.
She tweeted: “My source, an old acquaintance of Putin’s, tells me that taking one’s toilet with one when traveling abroad has been the norm for years, and the Russian leader has been doing so since the beginning of his rule.

“During the tour of Russia, Putin’s guards have the opportunity to clear used facilities if necessary; abroad this is not convenient.”
Claims that special attention has been paid to Putin’s poop since the beginning of his regime may contradict speculation that any possible illness is new.
Ms. Rustamova also told of other security procedures that are in place to ensure no attempt is made to poison him.
She tweeted: “The source also revealed that while Putin is definitely drinking from a different cup than his (although Putin has mostly only been drinking from his famous thermos for at least the last few years), his guards make sure no one takes it goblet away.
“Then it’s either wiped down thoroughly and all traces removed, or it’s taken away. Fingerprints will also be monitored if he has touched something,” the source says. According to him, the president’s biomaterials are protected as top secret information.
“You can decode someone’s DNA, find out about their predisposition to hereditary diseases – Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s, for example – whether they are currently ill and what medication they are taking, not to mention finding distant relatives or illegitimate children.”
