Russian president Vladimir Putin ‘very ill with blood cancer’: Oligarch


Russia: An oligarch with close ties to the Russian leader has reportedly been recorded as saying “Putin is very ill with blood cancer”. According to US media reports, the oligarch said that Putin had surgery on his back linked to his blood cancer shortly before ordering the invasion of Ukraine.

“We all hope that Putin dies. He absolutely ruined Russia’s economy, Ukraine’s economy and many other economies – ruined absolutely,” the oligarch reportedly says.

A video of a meeting between Putin and Russian defence minister Sergei Shoigu, showed him tightly clutching the table for the entirety of the 12-minute clip.

Speculations around the Russian President’s health intensified since the Ukraine war as the leaders appeared frail at public events including the Victory Day celebrations last week. In the photos and videos doing the on social media, Putin had a thick green cover draped over his legs as he sat among Second World War veterans and senior dignitaries to watch a military parade in Moscow’s Red Square.
