The British media write that Russian President Vladimir Putin may already be dead and his place has been taken by a double.

Referring to “intelligence data,” journalists assume that his entourage will hide Putin’s “death” for now, but is already preparing the ground by launching rumors that their leader has blood cancer.

“News” about the replacement of Vladimir Putin with a double began to spread several years ago in Ukraine and Russia, when the appearance of the Russian president began to change under the influence of age. It is clear that there was no confirmation of this.

But now this topic has been picked up by the British media. At the same time, rumors about Putin’s cancer were recently voiced by American director Oliver Stone, who used to support the Kremlin and Russian politics.
