Putin health latest: Sickly tyrant will be ‘incapacitated’ and toppled in coup within three months, claims ex-MI6 spy

VLADIMIR Putin is gravely ill and will be incapacitated within as little as three months, a former MI6 agent has said.

Health rumours have been swirling around Russia’s president for months with various reports and sources claiming he is unwell.

Kremlin officials insist there is nothing wrong with the warmongering tyrant, but recent public appearances have raised eyebrows.

Putin has appeared to shake, be hunched and bloated, and was even seen with a heavy blanket as he watched a parade.

And now ex-British intelligence officer Christopher Steele has said he believes Putin could have just three to six months left.

Steele is known for his controversial spy dossier that claims Russia has compromising information on Donald Trump.

He said there are signs Putin is struggling with his health as he appeared on BBC Radio 4’s The World at One.

“I don’t see him [Putin] being in power for more than three-six months from now,” Steele said.

“There are signs his health is failing for a start which will be a factor in this.

“And if what we’re being told by the CIA and others and our own sources is true then it looks as though he could become incapacitated over that sort of period of time.

“This is a strongman regime where people have to have fear of the leader and if the leader is incapacitated medically then there will be a move against him, I’m sure.”

It comes as Putin was reportedly given “urgent medical assistance” earlier this week after being struck down by a “sharp sickness”.

Vlad has reportedly been ordered by his doctors not to make any “lengthy” public appearances.

And meanwhile, his annual Q&A TV appearance was suddenly postponed indefinitely despite it being announced just days before.

The tyrant 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 unconfirmed 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 “Direct Line” live broadcast had been axed.

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 – especially amid the fog of war around Ukraine.

Moscow has waded into the rumours, as Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said: “It’s absolute nonsense.

“Everything is fine with the president.”

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.

At the meeting, he was asked: “So will we live better in 10 years’ time?”

He replied: “Yes, in the end this [reaching the goals I have set] will lead to a better life quality.”
