Friday, May 20, 2022, Vladimir Putin reportedly showed signs of weakness and weariness as he attended a meeting of the Russian Security Council.
While Russia finds itself in a very delicate situation facing the Ukrainian defense, Vladimir Putin also seems to be in great difficulty. On Friday, May 20, 2022, he attended a meeting of the Security Council regarding the threat of cyberattacks from Western countries. During this meeting, he made the decision to no longer rely on Western software for protection.
Yet the Russian president who recently allegedly vomited during a meeting seemed once again in bad shape according to body language expert Judi James. Indeed, she explained to the British daily The Mirror how much Vladimir Putin seemed even more exhausted than when he last appeared. “The pose of her body suggests reduced energy levels. He leans on his forearms which are both placed on the table. It’s a common pose in boardrooms, but when you look at Putin’s hands, the flesh looks slightly cupped on the table, suggesting a strong tilt” she said.
Many rumors about Vladimir Putin’s illness
Still according to Judi James, Alina Kabaeva’s companion would have tried to reposition herself and “restart its power and energy signals” several times during the meeting. The head of the Kremlin would have shown a weariness while sighing several times before talking. “It doesn’t sound like a man totally on the ropes, but some of the more subtle cues suggest possible weariness” she concluded.
Since several weeks, Vladimir Putin’s health is at the heart of much speculation. If some first claimed that he was suffering from Parkinson’s disease, thyroid cancer or other degenerative diseases, new rumors have been circulating recently. Indeed, an oligarch close to the Kremlin allegedly claimed that the 69-year-old would be “very sick with blood cancer“. Information that has not, however, been officially confirmed.
