Ukraine revives the theory that Putin is using his body twice
UKRAINE has revived a conspiracy theory that Russia is using a double body to support Vladimir Putin, and pointed to his changing ears as proof.
Rumors have been circulating for months about the 69-year-old Russian president’s ill health, with close ally Nicolai Patrushev believed to have attended Vlad’s regular medical appointments.
This week, Ukraine’s newly appointed Director of Military Intelligence, Major General Kyrylo Budanov, told Ukraine TV that Putin’s height and even ears appear to have changed in recent appearances.
“The image of the ears is different,” he said during an appearance on the channel ‘Groshi’, which means money.
“And it’s like a fingerprint, each person’s ear image is unique. It cannot be repeated”.
Budanov was also quoted by Ukraine’s TSN news agency as saying he believes the Russian president is seriously ill and uses doubles to avoid public appearances.
He claimed that despite being very similar, the bodies of the two Putins “have different habits, different manners, different gait, sometimes even different heights if you look closely.” .
