Another article about Vladimir Putin’s health is circulating on a Russian channel on Telegram, making us wonder if it was a bad propaganda tactic or if the President of Russia is really facing serious problems.
According to the General SVR channel on Telegram, Vladimir Putin, before standing in front of the camera to record his speech, developed a severe cough and chest pains, as a result of which doctors were called.
“When President Putin prepared his speech and the preparations for the filming began, he started coughing. Several attempts to start filming were canceled due to the coughing. After the fourth unsuccessful attempt to videotape the speech, doctors were called to whom Vladimir Putin complained of chest pains,” the Telegram channel reports.
The doctors recommended postponing the filming
According to the same source, “the doctors recommended postponing the filming and suggested that Putin undergo tests, which he did.”
It is recalled that the initial information referred to a speech by Putin on Tuesday night, but this was postponed until Wednesday morning. However, it is noted that Putin had met six days ago with the President of China and in the videos that were released it does not appear that the Russian President is showing any crisis in his health.
However, the author of the Telegram post also claims that “according to a group of people in Putin’s inner circle, the Russian president cited a health problem in order to reschedule the taping and reconsider his decision.”
“People close to the president of Russia are aware of Putin’s pathological procrastination in decision-making and the uncertainty that he possesses when it comes to making key decisions,” says the “deep throat” from the Kremlin.
It is recalled that in recent months there have been several publications and public appearances of Vladimir Putin that have fueled rumors about the state of health of the president of Russia before and during the invasion of Ukraine.
