Russian President, Vladimir Putin has sparked further rumours that his health is deteriorating, after footage seemed to show him suffering hand and leg tremors in a recent meeting.
In the clip released over the weekend, the warmonger is seen holding one hand to his chest while the other is in a fist, fuelling concerns he is suffering from Parkinson’s.
Later in the video, the 69-year-old greets Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko and appears unsteady on his feet while his thumb seems to suffer a spasm.
Visegrad24, which first published the footage online, believes it is “probably the clearest video of something being wrong with Putin’s health”, according to the Daily Express.
Reacting to the latest video, Emily Deans, a medical doctor and psychiatrist in Massachusetts, described it “the most abnormal video yet”, reported Mirror Online.
Rory Cellan-Jones, the BBC ’s former technology correspondent, who announced in 2019 that he had been diagnosed with Parkinson’s himself, also said he believed it to be symptomatic of the disease.
The former head of MI6 Sir Richard Dearlove previously agreed the President could have Parkinson’s.
He told GB News last month: “What’s also worrying is the speculation, and it is speculation, that maybe Putin’s behaviour, maybe his rationality is prejudiced or compromised by illness.
“The best explanation, that we don’t know whether it’s correct or not, is that he may have Parkinson’s.
“That certainly I’ve heard from several neurologists who say that loss of restrain, psychosis, are very common Parkinson’s symptoms.”
It comes after Putin fuelled speculation he’s secretly battling Parkinson’s or another serious illness as he appeared “unsteady and distracted” at Easter service.
The Russian President has faced concerns about his physical and mental health since launching his invasion of Ukraine in February.
Experts have suggested a number of theories ranging from cancer and Parkinson’s to steroid-use and psychosis or a personality disorder.
The footage of Putin looking shaky and anxious at Moscow’s Christ the Saviour Cathedral has further stoked the rumours.
During the brief footage of the service, Putin was seen chewing his lips and fidgeting as he spoke only once in chorus with the congregation saying “truly he is risen”.
The clip came days after he was seen “barely able to hold himself upright” as he gave orders to defence chief Sergei Shoigu on the siege of Mariupol.
Former Tory MP Louise Mensch has previously reported on Putin’s potential health problems.
She wrote: “Putin has Parkinson’s disease and here you can see him gripping the table so that his shaking hand is not visible but he cannot stop his foot from tapping.”
