An expert in body language analyzes the latest video of Putin: “Weakness and vulnerability”


New shocking video of Vladimir Putin shows him looking puffy and slumped on a chair. His foot taps as he grasps a table with white-knuckle grip.

These images suggest that Russia’s leader may be being treated for thyroid cancer.

Tonya Reiman is a body language expert and says this video “gives the impression that he’s not well” “needs some kind of stability.”

“He appears to be sitting like he’s vulnerable, whether it’s an illness or whether he’s exhausted, I’m not sure. But it’s definitely a vulnerable position. He’s typically the masculine one, the one who shows virility. Here he’s showing weakness and vulnerability,”Reiman stated.

Putin’s favourite mistress, the former Olympic rhythmic gymnast Alina Kavaeva, has returned to Moscow for a gymnastics competition. 

Now 38, she is rumored to be living in a Swiss resort, but global sanctions on Putin’s inner circle seem to have driven her back to Russia.
