Rumors about Putin’s ailing health have abounded for the last few months as evidence continues to arise that he may be on the way out of the Kremlin.

Ex MI6 Chief Sir Richard Dearlove predicted in May that Putin will lose power and be sent off to a sanatorium by the end of this year.

The rumors originated with the belief that Putin may have Cancer due to increased bloating in his face and that he has been accompanied by a doctor who specializes in treating thyroid cancer.

Now, some have speculated that he may have been replaced with a body double in a recent trip to Iran to meet Ayatollah Khomeni.

During the visit, the Russian government asked Iran to sell them drones to continue their invasion of Ukraine.

Someone may have been Putin on an act.

Russian leader Vladimir Putin may have been replaced by a lookalike body double during a trip to Iran this week, a top Ukrainian intelligence official said.

The Russian president, who has long been rumored to be ailing with an illness and possibly cancer, appeared more alert and mobile than usual during his visit to Iran to meet with Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Ukrainian sources told The Sun.

Maj. Gen. Kyrylo O. Budanov told Ukrainian outlet 1+1 that Putin’s lively appearance during the visit was uncharacteristic, and suggested that the man seen in the footage wasn’t Putin.

“I will only hint,” Budanov said, according to the translation.

“Please look at the moment of Putin’s exit from the plane. Is it Putin at all?”

Putin’s visit to Iran was his first international trip since the start of the invasion of Ukraine on Feb. 24.
