The “sick” Putin sweats, fidgets and grimaces while his hands and feet twitch on stage

VLADIMIR Putin appeared uneasy and grimaced as he looked sweaty and bloated onstage during a lengthy speech.

Russia’s tyrannical ruler appeared at the St. Petersburg Economic Forum, delivered a speech and then took part in a lengthy discussion.

Putin seemed uncomfortable, constantly fidgeting in his seat and fumbling with his hands.

He would slump in his chair, often resting at odd angles and curling his hands into claw-like positions.

And he’s constantly swinging and twisting both feet while his legs seem to squirm and wobble.

Russia’s leader also appeared with his now-characteristic puffy face as he spoke on a wide range of issues, including his war in Ukraine.

Health rumors continue to swirl around him as unconfirmed reports suggest he may be undergoing cancer treatment or even suffer from Parkinson’s disease.

Every one of Putin’s public appearances is now being dissected as the aging leader – who will turn 70 in October – looks grumpier and weaker than ever.

Kremlin officials consistently deny anything is wrong with him, but the weakened Putin these days seems far from his quest to be seen as the world’s strongman.

However, despite the speculation, he appeared on stage and spoke for several hours – shrugging off some reports he can now only make very brief public appearances.

Putin has been spotted at a parade with his legs covered in a thick blanket in the past and appeared to be shaking uncontrollably during a meeting with Belarusian dictator Alexander Lukashenko.

And today he took the stage alongside Kazakh leader Kassym-Jomart Tokayev – and Chinese President Xi Jinping also delivered a video message.

Vlad railed against the West and predictably defended his disastrous and barbaric invasion of Ukraine.

He also claimed that Russia’s invasion was not the cause of the global economic woes – instead he blamed it on the West.

“What is happening is not the result of the last few months, let alone the result of a special military operation,” Putin groaned.

“The rising prices, the inflation, the food problem, the fuel prices…are the result of systematic errors in the economic policies of the current US administration and the European bureaucracy.”

Putin lamented that Moscow’s military action had become a “lifeline” for Western countries “allowing them to blame their own miscalculations on others, in this case Russia.”

It comes as Putin reportedly received “urgent medical assistance” last week after being struck down by a “severe illness.”

The tyrant is said to have fallen ill while speaking to his military chiefs and suffered from “weakness and dizziness” as he got up from his desk after a 90-minute virtual session.

And meanwhile, Putin’s annual Q&A TV appearance was suddenly postponed indefinitely, despite being announced just days before.

The unconfirmed claims appear frequently on the General SVR channel of messaging app Telegram, which is said to be run by an insider with ties to the Kremlin.

It has repeatedly made claims about Putin’s alleged medical problems in the past, including cancer and Parkinson’s.

These claims, which the broadcaster says are based on insider intelligence, are impossible to verify — especially in the fog of the war over Ukraine.

Moscow has taken on the rumours, as Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said: “This is absolute nonsense.

“Everything is fine with the President.”

And experts remain skeptical of those attempting to diagnose Putin from still images and video.

However, Professor David Clarke told Sky News that he believes Putin “looks fine” – refuting claims that you can diagnose someone by looking at photos.

He said there was “no convincing evidence” that Putin was in poor health.

“He will be 70 years old on October 7th. It is known that he comes into contact with Botox quite heavily. I always say he’s trying to embalm himself while he’s still alive – he’s doing a lot of botox,” Professor Clarke said.

“He travels with doctors, it’s known that there is a small team of doctors who are never far away and it’s said that he periodically leaves meetings to consult with someone.

“I suspect he’s just a hypochondriac, to be honest.”

Putin continues a catastrophic war in Ukraine that has raged for more than 100 days and has claimed the lives of more than 30,000 Russian soldiers.

Russia is encroaching on Ukraine and appears determined to conquer vast chunks of eastern part of the former Soviet state.

But there are lingering fears that the conflict could spiral out of control and engulf the West.
