Vladimir Putin, the president of Russia, will temporarily hand over power to Nikolai Patrushev, the hardline Security Council head and former Federal Security Service (FSB) commander.
The Security Council head to take control of the invasion while he might undergo cancer surgery as per suggested by doctors. The surgery had been delayed, which was scheduled for the second half of April; the surgery and recovery will keep the president disabled for a while.
Russian President Vladimir Putin has been reported to have oncology in his reports that he has abdominal cancer. He is also suffering from ‘Parkinson’s disease, which carries symptoms of schizophrenia, including hallucinations and mania.
Last month during a meeting with Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu, Putin was seen uncomfortable and was gripping the meeting desk.
This has raised the question of the president’s health. In recent times, Putin has reportedly exhibited ‘abnormal jerky behaviour and appeared ill in public, following which Putin was rumoured to be having health aliment.
We know that Putin indicated that Patrushev is considered his only trusted ally and friend in the government. And actual control of the country will temporarily pass into Patrushev’s hands until he fully recovers.
