Vladimir Putin's ill health under scanner again after video shows him 'unsteady' and 'trembling'
Vladimir Putin was spotted trembling and having difficulty standing straight during an award ceremony at the Kremlin, which has raised concerns about the Russian president's probable deteriorating health. Putin, 69, stood close to the stage and swayed his legs while keeping his arms by his sides.
The Russian president looked unsteady and rocked back and forth after presenting Nikita Mikhailov with the State Prize of the Russian Federation on Sunday, June 12, in the video recorded at the event, according to the UK's Express. Putin's physicians have reportedly instructed him not to make any "lengthy" public appearances due to his "unstable health", which is when the alarming video surfaced. The report is based on a claim made on the Kremlin military source-run Telegram channel General SVR.

The account stated last week that after appearing on camera with advisers a few days earlier, Putin got sick and complained of "sharp sickness, weakness, and dizziness". There have been several rumors floating around that the Russian strongman had cancer, Parkinson's illness, or early-stage dementia.
Sergei Lavrov, the foreign minister of Russia, had commented refuting the rumors regarding Putin's health. In an interview with French television, Lavrov stated, "President Vladimir Putin appears in public every day. You can watch him on screens, read and listen to his performances. I don't think sane people can see signs of some kind of illness or poor health."
However, a representative of the Director of National Intelligence told Newsweek, "Putin is definitely sick," adding, "Whether he's going to die soon is mere speculation." The publication cited a senior intelligence person who had direct access to the classified US intelligence report as saying, "Putin's grip is strong but no longer absolute."

According to the report, two officials, one from the Defense Intelligence Agency and one retired Air Force officer, said they had access to a thorough intelligence evaluation of Putin's health and that his prognosis is dismal. The intelligence community also thinks that Putin is becoming more nervous about maintaining his grasp on power and may have escaped an assassination attempt in March.
During a meeting with his military minister in April, the Russian president was spotted clumsily clutching a table. Since the beginning of Putin's invasion of Ukraine, there have been rumors surfacing that he is about to die due to his poor health. The Project, a Russian investigative publication, claims that Putin also bathes in blood taken from deer antlers, which are chopped off while they are still growing and filled with new blood. The claims about Putin being unwell have now and then been refuted by the Kremlin.
