Vladimir Putin’s alleged Parkinson’s diagnosis has been confirmed, according to a tabloid.

Globe recently claimed that not only does Putin have Parkinson’s but that his illness is progressing rapidly.

“I can confirm he has been diagnosed with early-stage Parkinson’s disease, but it’s already progressing,” the source said.

The source also said that no matter how hard the public tries to press the Russian government for answers and updates about Putin’s health, they will never come clean because they are loyal to their president.

However, the source insisted that a confirmation from the Russian government is no longer necessary because all signs point to the fact that Putin is unwell.

“Vile Vladimir is said to be pumped full of steroids and painkillers, which allow him to appear in public on occasion but cause puffiness, memory lapses, terrible rages, and other issues,” the publication said.

New photos of Putin also show him with protruding veins, and the tabloid claimed that this is because of his recent IV injections.

Other videos of the Russian leader also show him allegedly shaking uncontrollably, which is one of the most common signs of Parkinson’s.

And then there was also that time when he made headlines amid claims that he was gripping the table too hard to help maintain his balance.

According to the source, Russians and Ukrainians are not just worried about Putin’s health per se but also the effects it could have on the countries. After all, the leader is allegedly suffering from schizoaffective disorder, which is a combination of psychotic and mood disorder symptoms.

“It makes sense to use nuclear weapons for Putin in only one situation. If the rumors about his health problems are true – if he has a few months left to live – he does not want to go down in history as a loser,” political economist Georgy Egorov said.

However, one should take the tabloid’s claims with a grain of salt. It’s not true that Putin has been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. If he suffers from a serious condition, the Russian government would have no choice but to reveal the diagnosis.

After all, it would be difficult for Putin to continue his job as the leader of Russia if he is dealing with a serious illness. But the fact that he can still do his job proves that the tabloid’s claims were just made up.
