According to a recent report citing people with close to the Kremlin, Russian President Vladimir Putin has been feeling weak and dizzy as a result of the adverse effects of the medications he is taking, which have also led him to lose his appetite.

Putin, 70, whose health has been the subject of great debate for many months, was characterized as "withdrawn, terse, not meeting almost anybody in person, and usually highly busy" by the Telegram channel "General SVR," which is reportedly maintained by a former Russian intelligence official.

Putin's Health Worsens

"Putin is receiving a course of treatment with medications that, in addition to their medicinal benefits, create weakness, dizziness, and lack of appetite, which does not have the best effect on the president's psycho-emotional condition," a message on the Telegram channel read on Tuesday.

Putin is reported to be afflicted with a variety of cancers and a deteriorating Parkinson's disease, among other maladies, none of which have ever been acknowledged by the Kremlin. Since the beginning of the war in Ukraine last year, the Russian strongman has appeared in public on many occasions appearing ill and unstable.

General SVR stated on Tuesday that Putin is apprehensive about implementing "important choices" that he previously alluded to, suggesting that they will have a transformative effect on both Russia's internal and foreign affairs. According to the article, "Putin is a fairly fearful individual, and any changes, even those he proposes, cause him significant dread and stress."

Putin is now determining the order and timing of these "decisions," which might "raise the stakes to a critical level," according to General SVR. General SVR has not ruled out the possibility that Putin would deploy nuclear weapons if his forces in Ukraine falter; however, doing so would "lead to a general catastrophe not only for Putin, but for all members of the elite without exception, which would obliterate the current regime in Russia and make the president's chances of retaining power utterly illusory."

According to the report, a general draft, a proclamation of martial law, and massive personnel changes are all on the table and, if implemented, would result in hundreds of thousands of more fatalities. Putin was seen in person on Tuesday, when he presided over a meeting on economic concerns via video connection from his official home in Novo-Ogaryovo, outside of Moscow.

In the city of Ufa on Friday, he attended the burial of Murtaza Rakhimov, the first president of the Republic of Bashkortostan area. General SVR claimed that Putin was replaced by a "body double" throughout his public appearances and meetings in Ufa, but this assertion could not be independently confirmed, as per NY Post.

Putin sounded optimistic in an interview with the state television channel Rossiya 1 on Sunday, insisting that the military operation in Ukraine had gained positive momentum and that he hoped his troops would deliver more victims after Russia claimed control of the Ukrainian-contested salt-mining town of Soledar.

As his health quickly deteriorates, a Kremlin source has said that Russian President Vladimir Putin is willing to "take down as many people as possible with him," has learned.

The statement, which sounded more like an ominous global warning, suggested that Putin was prepared to take drastic measures in the ongoing Russia-Ukraine conflict, including the use of nuclear weapons - as the Kremlin leader's rumored failing health has left him with a deranged and pessimistic outlook on his remaining time on Earth.

Kremlin Set to Make Important Announcement

According to a Russian official, Vladimir Putin will make a "very important" remark about the war in Ukraine tomorrow. Vladimir Rogov reports that the Russian president may make a speech at a series of events commemorating the 80th anniversary of the siege of Leningrad (now St. Petersburg) during World War II.

Rogov, who was nominated by Russia to lead the seized Ukrainian territory of Zaporizhzhia, asserts that Putin will deliver an important address tomorrow in St. Petersburg, Mirror reported.

The pro-Putin official made the statement on his Telegram channel, although the Kremlin has not yet issued an official confirmation of the president's address. Regional officials are apparently preparing for Putin's arrival over 11 months after the Russian president ordered his soldiers to invade Ukraine.

It follows a terrifying warning from Russia that British tanks supplied to Ukraine will "burn" on the battlefield. The comments followed the announcement that the British government will provide a squadron of Challenger 2 tanks, making it the first Western power to provide Ukraine with main combat tanks.
