While dismissing rumours, Kremlin says Putin is completely in good health

WorldRussiaWhile dismissing rumours, Kremlin says Putin is completely in good health

The Kremlin said Thursday that the President of Russia, Vladimir Putin is in good health, dismissing rumours that the leader was unwell as completely unfounded.

As per the health spokesman of the Kremlin, Dmitry Peskov, “Everything is fine with his health.”


Scrutiny over the 69-year-old Putin’s health has intensified since he launched a full-scale military operation against Ukraine in February.

“Ukrainian, American and British information ‘specialists’ have been throwing out various fakes about the state of the president’s health in recent months. These are nothing but fakes,” Peskov added.

After Putin was seen coughing at a forum on Wednesday, he said he had caught a slight cold while sitting under an air conditioner during his visit to Iran earlier this week.

“It was very hot in Tehran yesterday… The air conditioning was very strong there. So I apologize,” the president said.

A video of Putin disembarking from his plane upon arrival in Tehran also prompted speculation that he was unsteady on his feet.

CIA Director William Burns, when asked about the issue during a security forum in the United States on Wednesday, said that Putin was “entirely too healthy.”


Russia’s president has frequently been in public view since the start of the war in Ukraine on Feb. 24, maintaining a full schedule of meetings and talks, including a number of foreign trips within the past month.
