According to the Ukrainian security service, Putin’s war dog Kadyrov is in critical condition due to a serious illness.
SBU spokesman Andriy Yusov announced that the Chechen strongman’s “existing illnesses” had worsened and he was now fighting for his life in a coma.
Yusov told Ukrainian news agency Obozrevatel: “Yes, there is indeed information that the war criminal Kadyrov is in a serious condition – his existing illnesses have worsened and caused such a serious condition.”
“He has been ill for a long time, these are systemic health problems. But he has been in a serious condition for the past few days.”
Kadyrov is said to have been in a coma for several days and is now waiting to be transferred from Chechnya for treatment abroad – probably in the United Arab Emirates.
Yusov said the information came from multiple medical and political sources, but gave no further details.
The Chechen war dog was a strong supporter of Putin’s invasion of Ukraine and sent his own troops to wage war on the front lines.
There has also been speculation about Kadyrov’s health, with claims that he is terminally ill.
In March, Kadyrov laughed off the rumors in a Telegram post.
He wrote: “To those who console themselves with the hope that I am terminally ill, I am sorry to upset you.”
But recent pictures appeared to show the bloated monster after it was claimed he buried his personal doctor alive because he tried to poison him.
The family’s doctor, Elkhan Suleymanov, is feared dead after he disappeared last year.
