    Don’t Spread Putin Illness Rumors – Russian Foreign Minister

    Moscow: Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has urged people not to spread rumors of President Putin Illness. He vehemently, denied on Sunday that President Vladimir Putin was ill, saying there were no clear indicators of him being ill.

    Putin’s health and personal life are taboo subjects in Russia, rarely discussed in public.

    In response to a question from France’s TF1, Russia’s top diplomat stated, “I don’t think sane people can see signs of some kind of illness or ailment in this person.”

    Putin, who will turn 70 in October, appears in public “every day,” according to Lavrov.

    “You can watch him on screens, read and listen to his speeches,” Lavrov said, according to Russian Foreign Ministry comments.

    Putin, Russia’s president for more than two decades, dispatched troops to Ukraine on February 24, sending shockwaves around the world.

    Moscow’s offensive has killed thousands of people, triggered Europe’s worst refugee crisis since World War II, and resulted in unprecedented Western sanctions against Moscow.
