Russian President Vladimir Putin caused international shockwaves on February 24, 2022 when he invaded Ukraine. Putin’s incursion on Ukraine comes under the misguided notion that Ukraine belongs to Russia, is part of Russia, and needs to be “liberated” from so-called Nazism.
Since Putin’s troops invaded Ukraine, there have been multiple reports of crimes against humanity and war crimes. Ukrainian women, men, and children have been tortured, sexually assaulted, violently murdered, displaced, and otherwise subjected to unspeakable horrors.
Because of Putin’s actions, the Russian government has been hit with numerous sanctions. Meanwhile, many businesses have also pulled out of Russia, refusing to work in the nation.
As all this plays out, there have been reports of the Russian autocrat suffering from various health problems. Now, a top Ukrainian official is charging Putin with secretly using a body double for public appearances, according to Newsmax.
Reviewing Claims of a Putin Body Double
Ukrainian military intelligence chief Maj. Gen. Kyrylo Budanov recently warned that all is not what it seems concerning Putin.
Budanov, during a TV interview, reported that in recent public appearances involving Putin, the height, gait, ears, and mannerisms of the Russian tyrant have shifted. It is for these reasons that Budanov believes Putin is using a body double to conceal his health issues.

According to multiple reports, Putin is facing Parkinson’s disease, blood cancer, and possibly other issues. Budanov is advising people who are skeptical of his claims to observe differences in Putin’s behaviors when he’s out and about.
If Putin actually is facing the type of health complications that have been speculated, a body double would certainly help conceal this reality, especially from a distance.
Earlier this year, the Ukrainian military intelligence chief also made mention of a Putin body double, pointing to the Russian tyrant’s abrupt shift in characteristics.
More Alleged Problems Facing Putin
The believed health issues of the Russian president may not be the only problems he’s up against.
Multiple reports indicate that Putin’s faced assassination attempts since his invasion of Ukraine; although, the Russian president’s previous work as a KGB officer would undoubtedly help him dodge various attacks on his life.
I think we can all agree that after the US assassinated Ayman al-Zawahiri via drone strike, the top terrorist alive is now Vladimir Putin.

More reports accuse Putin of suffering from paranoia and not truly trusting those who are closest to him. Apparently, the Russian autocrat is enraged that a war he thought would end in days is instead still carrying on after months.
Meanwhile, the Russian regime is getting increasingly vocal in its frustrations with America and other western countries sending aid, weapons, and support over to Ukraine.
