According to insiders, Vladimir Putin’s security agents are forced to collect his bowel movements and urine and bring them to Moscow in a “special suitcase”.
The Russian President has tasked several Secret Service agents with this key task, which is said to be carried out to cover up information about Vlad’s possible illnesses.
French magazine Paris Match claimed that the bizarre practice was first noticed during a state visit to France in 2017.
It was then also mentioned during a trip to Saudi Arabia in October 2019.
“We have learned from indirect sources in the Middle East that this delicate mission was being conducted under the control of the FSO (Russian Federal Guard Service),” she wrote.
An official was instructed to pack Putin’s feces into specially made bags and deliver them to Russia in a special suitcase.
The BFS is said to have obligated embassy employees who are aware of this to strict secrecy.
It’s the latest example of Putin’s weird toilet habits making the news.
In 2019, a strange video showed paranoid Vlad being escorted to the toilet by six male bodyguards during Ukrainian peace talks at Paris’ Elysée Palace.
At the time, a former German intelligence chief told BILD that Putin’s actions were “outrageous” and described them as “open provocation and threats.”
Meanwhile, the independent Russian news agency Baza wrote in February that people close to the president were being forced to submit stool samples several times a week under “enhanced security measures.”
Due to Covid restrictions, many Kremlin employees have also been forced to remain in quarantine for most of the year.
US magazine New Lines reported that reduced immunity and “deeply irrational or paranoid behavior” are two main side effects of prednisone, a commonly used steroid to treat blood cancer.
Putin’s health has been the subject of speculation for some time.
It is reported that the Central Clinical Hospital in Moscow, which treats high-ranking politicians, has signed an agreement with four hotels in Sochi on the Black Sea, where Putin has a summer residence.
Whenever the Russian President is in his palace in the city, a team of doctors is supposed to go to Sochi.
Between 2016 and 2020, top oncologist Dr. Shcheglov reportedly visited Sochi 59 times and spent 282 days with Putin.
His colleague Dr. Selivanov traveled to Sochi at least 35 times during the same period, for a total of 166 days.

This follows reports that Putin received “urgent medical attention” this week after being struck down by a mysterious illness.
Russia’s president has reportedly been instructed by his doctors not to make “lengthy” public appearances.
Vlad is said to have fallen ill speaking to his military chiefs and suffered from “severe nausea, weakness and dizziness” as he got up from his desk after a 90-minute virtual session.
The claims appeared on the General SVR channel of messaging app Telegram, which is said to be run by a Kremlin insider.
It said that Putin needed “urgent medical help” from doctors.
This delicate mission was carried out under the control of the FSO (Russian Federal Guard Service).
While the Russian President’s annual TV Q&A was postponed at short notice this week, fueling more rumors of ill health.
It has been reported that Putin is suffering from a number of health problems and has appeared weakened in his recent appearances in the wake of his disastrous invasion of Ukraine.
From a heavy blanket draped over his lap at a parade to shaking uncontrollably during a meeting, observers have wondered what’s wrong with Vlad.
And this recent abrupt delay will only fuel those rumors – with suggestions he could be suffering from Parkinson’s, cancer or even early-stage dementia.
Recently, Putin’s Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov addressed the health rumors surrounding Putin for the first time, telling state television channel TF1: “I don’t think anyone with a good head can see any signs of illness or disease in this person.”
Kremlin press secretary Dmitry Peskov also insisted that the president’s health was “excellent”.
However, a former KGB agent claimed exclusively to The Sun Online that Putin suffers from dementia and is being driven insane by his paranoia.
Former Russian spy Boris Karpichkov, 62, said even members of Putin’s inner circle were kept secret about his health in order to protect his “strongman” image.
The Russian defector, who now lives in the UK, said the paranoid Putin sees everyone as a “traitor” – and that his health is a “particularly sensitive issue”.
