The Danish Military Intelligence Service (FE) believes that Russian President Vladimir Putin is not suffering from a terminal illness, but is experiencing severe chronic pain after several falls and accidents, and this may over time affect his stay in power.

Details: In its 2021 annual report, the FE said Putin was “very likely” to remain Russia’s leader after the next presidential election in 2024. However, in its report for 2022, it changed this forecast to a less certain one, that Putin is “likely” to remain in power for the next five years.

“But our biggest uncertainty concerns his health, or someone removing him because of his failing health,” the intelligence official said.

FE does not believe that Putin is suffering from a terminal illness, but rather is in severe chronic pain after several falls and accidents.

“That’s why he tends to sit and grab things tightly. It’s to ease the pain,” the official noted.

The publication notes that various media previously reported that Putin was suffering from the effects of a fall from a horse in the 2000s. Later, it was reported that he had also been injured during judo and hockey training over the past few years.

At the same time, FE believes that Putin had previously suffered from a form of cancer and was being treated for it when he started the war, which may have influenced his decision.

FE does not expect Putin to die from the disease he is suffering from. But over time, it may lead to the fact that the Russian elite will want to see a stronger person at the helm.

“It’s our firm impression that part of the elite do see they are heading down the wrong track,” added the Danish intelligence officer.

Background:

  • In April, investigative journalists reported that Russian President Vladimir Putin was accompanied on trips by ten doctors, including oncologist Evgenii Selivanov, who deals with thyroid problems.

  • At the beginning of May, British tabloid “The Sun” wrote that 69-year-old Putin was being prepared for surgery. And allegedly, during the operation and rehabilitation, Putin would hand over his power to Nikolai Patrushev, Secretary of the Security Council of Russia.

  • Head of Ukraine’s Military Intelligence, Kyrylo Budanov, said that Vladimir Putin is seriously ill with cancer, and a coup may take place in Russia. Budanov later said that Putin could live for a few more years despite serious illnesses, including cancer.

  • Former British spy Christopher Steele also reported on Putin’s illness.
