Questions have been raised over the Russian President’s health in recent months.
Putin fuelled speculation today as he sat with a blanket over his lap at a military parade in Moscow.
One Twitter user, Wallis Weaver, said: “So, I watched some of the parade and I watched Putin carefully. Putin didn’t look strong, he didn’t look confident, and he didn’t look happy. He looked old, tired, and fat/puffy. He was sitting for a while and had a blanket on his lap. Not a good look.”
Another with the handle @JanGilb33464730 wrote: “Putin looks frumpy, and old today, looks like his health and/or the war is wearing him down.”
A third Twitter user, David Nelson, said: “Walking from the parade to the tomb, Putin barely moved his right arm, and walked with a limp, favoring his right leg. He is surrounded by bodyguards and appears to be wearing body armor under his overcoat.”
