    Does Putin have Parkinsons?

    Russian President Vladimir Putin may quit from his post in January amid fears he has Parkinson's disease, sources have claimed.


    Putinís 37-year-old girlfriend, Alina Kabaeva, and his two daughters are pushing him to leave office, a report in The Daily Mail quoted Moscow political scientist Valery Solovei as saying.

    Solovei claimed that Putin may be suffering from Parkinsonís as the president has been seen recently exhibiting symptoms of the disease.


    Recent footage of Putin's legs moving around as he gripped onto the armrest of a chair; a twitching pen in the former KGB operative's fingers; and a cup filled with painkillers had raised eyebrows.

    This is not the first time that people have speculated that Putin may be suffering from Parkinson's disease.


    The speculation comes amid Russian lawmakers considering legislation proposed that would grant ex-presidents lifetime immunity from criminal prosecution.


    According to New York Post, Solovei said Putin would soon appoint a new prime minister who would be groomed to become his eventual successor.


    The presidentís staff, however, has played down rumours on Putinís plan to step down.

    Another completely fucking assinine narrative.

    Mikhail Gorbachev blew the USSR up into 15 pieces. Boris Yeltsin let the country get looted for 10 years after. And ...and.... and.... They both lived comfortably in Moscow. Gorbachev lives comfortably in Moscow to this very day. And Yeltsin did too before he passed away.

    But hey ! Putin rebuilt the country one step at a time and he's gonna be hunted by mobs ! Hahaha you fucking numpties.

    This has nothing to do with conspiracy numbnuts. This is that utterly bunk narrative in the west that there will be this howling mobs after Putin after he steps down as leader.

    Does Putin have Parkinson’s? Western media goes into frenzy over claims from notorious Russian conspiracy theorist

    Vladimir Putin is poised to step back from the Russian presidency after being diagnosed with a neurological condition. That’s according to a Moscow commentator who once claimed membership of a shadowy, secret intelligence group.
    The explosive suggestion, made by political scientist Valery Solovey, was covered widely in US and UK news on Friday. Outlets including the Sun, the Daily Mail and the New York Post ran the story that Putin has been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. The tabloids, among the most read in the West, suggested that the president would stand down next year.


    Solovey has become a regular commentator in the anglophone media, particularly after stepping down from his role as Chair of the Public Relations Department at the Moscow State Institute of International Relations (MGIMO). He argued he had been pushed out, apparently “for political reasons.” The gabby conspiracy theorist is beloved of British and American hacks in Moscow as he will pretty much say anything to suit their agendas.

    In the past, Solovey has claimed “associate membership” of a shadowy international organization, more powerful than national governments. In an interview with Ukrainian journalist Dmitry Gordon, he described this group as “stronger than the Federal Security Service (FSB), stronger than the Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR), and stronger than Russia’s Military Intelligence (GRU).” He added that it is “not an occult organization,” and has nothing to do with the Templars and Freemasons.


    Solovey has made almost identical allegations in the past, which failed to materialize. In 2016, he was quoted in the Daily Mail, Britain's leading non-red top daily, as saying that Putin would shortly stand down due to ill health. Then, in an interview with the Independent in 2017, he asserted that Putin had again been on the verge of quitting.


    The commentator again made headlines earlier this year when he alleged that Moscow had developed a secret coronavirus cure, which was only being made available to those “who are very close to the Kremlin, and to Mr Putin.” No evidence has been presented to support these claims, and Russian commentators have repeatedly, and with growing exasperation, pointed to the frequency with which Western media uses discredited and marginal voices in its coverage of the country.


    Indeed, for all the wailing about ‘Russian disinformation’ in the US, UK and EU, in reality, the bigger problem appears to be Western disinformation about Russia.

    The speculation around Putin's health comes as a bill is introduced in parliament that would offer total legal immunity to former holders of the top job. This has drawn suggestions that the president might look to take a step back from the role in the near future.


    However, the Kremlin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov has rejected Solovey’s claims outright. On a call with journalists on Friday morning, he told reporters that “Putin is not going to resign – he is in excellent health.”

    He could have tertiary syphilis for all I know, but that's not the point. Yes, he should be preparing for succession- not in terms of a specified date, but just to do his best to ensure as smooth as possible a handover of power and continuation of government administration when the time comes. There are plenty of examples of nations falling apart and descending into chaos when the 'resident strongman' dies, or is removed. It seems to be somewhat of a US stock in trade too, if they don't like you. So if Putin is the great Russian patriot he says he is, he indeed should prepare for this eventuality.

    He has been preparing for 2 years.

    This is just another one of those headlines generated by the Anglo empire to make their advisaries look weak or unstable.

    They had one of these stories in 2015 Vladimir Putin Alive, Sick With Flu Despite Death Rumors, CIA Source Tells Gawker

    They did one on the north Korean leader earlier this year too. Remember he was dead ?

    Yes I do, and no I do not pay particular credence to unsubstantiated rumours, especially where it applies to our 'declared enemies'. But the point still applies.

    Of course he's not a patriot. Why do you think he's trying to ram through a law to make himself legally untouchable?

    Because him and his oligarchs have robbed the fucking country blind, that's why.

    Robbed the country blind he says. When Putin came into office , there was 300 million in FX reserves. Now there's 550+ billion in FX reserves. When Putin came into office there was 3-400 tons of gold. Now there's 2000+ tons of gold (5th most in the world) But hey. He robbed the country

    Not a patriot he says. Well here's some of the Constitutional changes that Putin made in 2019.

    -Persons who hold "important positions for ensuring the country's security" (President, Ministers, judges, heads of regions) should not have foreign citizenship or residence permit in other countries, either at the time of their work in office or, in the case of the President, at any time before;

    -A presidential candidate must live in Russia for at least 25 years (currently 10 years) and may not have ever in their life held foreign citizenship or residency (with no possibility of renouncing foreign citizenship to become eligible to be president);

    I've had some good results in China and when protecting patent rights.

    I guess you are still working on what was happening 20 years ago but that is OK mate.

    Maybe you will catch up when you learn the new rules!

    Panama skat is a brainless dunder head that thinks any country that isn't fully aligned with the USA is a crazy place with no rule of law.
