The Russian The leader’s hands mysteriously turned purple when he met Cuban President Miguel Díaz-Canel, sparking fears about his physical health. Cuban leaders meet Putin at the Kremlin, making him one of the few world leaders to visit Moscow since the war in Ukraine broke out at the end of February. Miguel Díaz-Canel condemned international sanctions against Russia and expressed unwavering support for the Kremlin against what he called the “Yankee Empire”.
But Vladimir Putin was seen grabbing the arm of a chair during the bilateral talks, with his leg unusually shaky.
The video shows the Russian leader moving his legs with difficulty and his hands turning purple as he gripped the arm of the chair.
After months of isolation during the Covid-19 pandemic, Vladimir Putin has repeatedly appeared with worrying signs of declining physical and mental health since the start of the war in Ukraine.
In May, a leaked audiotape appeared in which a oligarch with Kremlin connections appeared to suggest that Putin had blood cancer. The audio, obtained by News Lines, claims that the President is “severely ill”.
During the Victory Day parade held in Moscow in May, the Russian leader was photographed with a blanket wrapped around his legs at the event. Other photos appear to show marks on his hands, with some commentators suggesting they may have come from an intravenous infusion.
The plot thickens when former British military commander, Lord Richard Dannatt, says that the appearance of Putin’s hand suggests he may be unwell.
He told Sky News: “Skillful observers are now noticing that his hand looks rather black at the top, which is a sign of injections while other parts of the body are not. injectable.”
Later that month, The Sun reported that they had seen Russian intelligence documents claiming that Putin was diagnosed with early-stage Parkinson’s disease and pancreatic cancer.
Just a month after the Victory Parade in Moscow, defense and security expert, Professor Michael Clarke said there was “no convincing evidence” that Putin had Parkinson’s disease or cancer.
He said: “He’s known to get quite a bit of Botox… He travels around with the doctors, is known to have a small group of doctors who are never far away, and it is said that he does. regularly leaving meetings to go and consult someone. Honestly, I doubt he’s just a hypocrite.”
U.S. intelligence officials told Newsweek that they suspect Putin was being treated for “terminal cancer” in April, while CIA Director William Burns said they were uncertain about his health.
The Kremlin has repeatedly denied the claims. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov told French TV station TF1: “I don’t think ordinary people can see in this person signs of some kind of illness.”
