Putin given 'urgent medical help' after being struck down by mystery illness, claims Kremlin insider | The Sun

VLADIMIR Putin was given "urgent medical assistance" earlier this week after being struck down by a "sharp sickness", according to Kremlin insiders.

Russia's president has reportedly been ordered by his doctors not to make any "lengthy" public appearances.


Vlad is said to have fallen ill while talking to his military chiefs and suffered "sharp sickness, weakness and dizziness" as he got up from his desk after a 90-minute virtual session.

The claims appeared on the General SVR channel on the messaging app Telegram, which is purportedly run by a Kremlin insider.

It said that Putin "needed urgent medical assistance" from doctors.

The channel said this sudden "dizziness" spell was the real reason Vlad's annual "Direct Line" live broadcast had been postponed with no plans for rescheduling.

This Q&A which sees Putin answer questions from ordinary Russians had been pencilled in for late June or early July, but now no date has been fixed.

However, the 69-year-old did make a now-rare public appearance in Moscow this Thursday as he addressed young Russian entrepreneurs, engineers and scientists.

At an event marking the 350th anniversary of the birth of Peter the Great, Putin bizarrely bragged that he was following in the former Russian tsar's footsteps with his war in Ukraine.

Peter the Great seized land from Sweden and captured ports at Azov and the Baltic Sea in a number of successful wars in the early 18th century.

In his speech, Putin asked the audience: "What was (Peter) doing? Taking back and reinforcing. That's what he did. And it looks like it fell on us to take back and reinforce as well."

It was the first time Russia's leader had publicly admitted that his military aims were to take Ukrainian territory.

However, he also admitted that Russians face a decade of falling living standards as a result of world sanctions following the February 24 invasion of Ukraine.

The General SVR channel has made repeated claims in the past about Putin's alleged medical problems, including cancer and Parkinson's disease.

These claims, which the channel says are based on inside intelligence, are impossible to verify, but come amid swirling rumours in the West about the Russian president's health.
