Russian President Vladimir Putin is “severely ill with blood cancer,” an oligarch who is close to the Kremlin said in a secret recording. The reports revealed that the type of cancer is unspecified.
As per reports, “The recording represents rare testimony by someone with proven ties to the Russian government that its fanatical dictator may well be seriously unwell.”
“He absolutely ruined Russia’s economy, Ukraine’s economy and many other economies — ruined [them] absolutely,” the unnamed oligarch said of Putin on the tape. “The problem is with his head. One crazy man can turn the world upside down.”
The man is an energy tycoon, who is presently not in Russia. He has a net worth that puts him on the 200 wealthiest Russian business people list. He can be heard on the tape vehemently criticizing the invasion of Ukraine and questioning the purpose of more than 15,000 Russian soliders’ deaths.
And he says, “We all hope” Putin dies from his cancer or possibly from some intervention, such as a coup, to spare Russia from further misfortune.
