Putin is not battling cancer – Kremlin spokesman

Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov on Wednesday denied western reports that Russian President Vladimir Putin is allegedly suffering from pancreatic cancer.

“Bite your tongue! Everything’s fine,” Peskov said in response to Putin’s supposed illness, ria.ru reports.

On October, 24 NYpost.com published an arlicle claiming Vladimir Putin has pancreatic cancer and that’s is the reason for his hurrying to invade Ukraine.

“Putin is allegedly being treated by an elderly doctor from the old East Germany whom Putin met decades ago while serving in Dresden for the KGB. The doctor has been trying various treatments including steroid shots, which would explain Putin’s puffy appearance. The physician, who is 84 years old, quit recently, confiding that he hated coming to Russia and was always mistreated by Putin’s security detail,” the article stated.

Its author Richard Johnson makes a guess that Putin has three years to live and wants to leave a legacy of expanding the Russian borders just like Peter the Great or Stalin.
