Leads me to wonder if a possible endgame to this war is Russia suing for peace after the death of its leader.

Didn't a very small amount of people get a similar reaction to the COVID vaccines? Wonder if that is what happened here. Not sure I have herd of shaking being a symptom for a blood cancer.

Hopefully his surgeon has uncontrollable shaking near his artery.

In all seriousness, I don't know what is true, I do think his shaking is odd but I'm not a doctor, Lol. I believe it was UK who first reported he may have Parkinson's based on 'sources' but now apparently he has blood cancer according to a leaked voice recording from a Russian Oligarch, if that is true or not, I don't know.

Hope for the best (he's seriously ill), expect the worse (he's fine).





The Russian retreat from Kharkiv is interesting. It implies that Russia is unable to achieve its objectives there, and moreover, Ukraine has seemed for a while to actually have the upper hand there. The chances are that the Russian forces that were in the Kharkiv region are simply too spent to be useful there, or possible anywhere else either for a while. This leaves Ukraine able to move some military strength elsewhere, with Russia unable to fully answer this. That is, this should make it even harder for Russia to achieve its objectives elsewhere.

In this light, what Ukraine's head of military intelligence said in a Sky News interview certainly gains some credibility: 'As a result, we will renew Ukrainian power in all our territories that we have lost including Donbas and the Crimea.' At this rate, Russia will have to find new ways to react to the situation in Ukraine, but right now, it's not looking great for Russia.

Can’t say as medicine is a field I’m far from an expert in, but the reports were suggesting the shaking was potentially Parkinson’s. However that lends more credence to it being a fake report.

However apparently the FSB out a bulletin to all staff that such rumours were fake, which meant that every agent instantly assumed they were true as the most sure-fire way to confirm news in Russia seems to be the FSB denying it.



So Ukraine won Eurovision just now. I wonder how Russia will respond.

Probably claim that every country which gave points to Ukraine is full of Nazis.

I'm starting to see stories that he has leukemia. While I'm ordinary full of sympathy for cancer patients (almost lost my dad, and lost a lot of other family members to cancer, it is no joke), it couldn't have happened to a nicer guy, especially one who puts off a "tough guy" persona like Putin. I wonder how Putin's death would affect Russia's will to continue the war in Ukraine. 

The Independent: Putin 'very ill with cancer', Russian oligarch recorded saying

Maybe he took a stroll along the shores of Lake Karachay to show how tough he was.
