After Vladimir Putin looked unwell while attending a Victory Day parade in Moscow, body language expert Judi James warned against underestimating the Russian president

Russian President Vladimir Putin appears “weak” but is possibly “the deadliest,” a body language expert has warned.

After more than two months of fighting in Ukraine, Putin took part in a victory parade in Moscow’s Red Square yesterday (9 May). The annual event marks the anniversary of the Soviet Union’s defeat of Nazi Germany in World War II, but was used by the Führer as an opportunity to support his attack on Ukraine.

There was constant speculation about the despot’s health, and after Putin was spotted with what he believed to be a woolen blanket over his knees, one expert even said he looked like a “little old man”.

And speaking to Kay Burley on Sky News, body language expert Judi James agreed something wasn’t quite right but cautioned against underestimating Putin.

“Yes, he has a swollen left side of his face. His gait had been unsteady lately. He also has the trait of swinging his left arm but keeping his right arm down by his side,” she noted.

“His facial expressions, he seems almost unable to control the right side of his face. There was a lot of tugging as he stood and sat and watched, it was like there were multiple emotions going through the right side.”

At the ceremony, Putin did not speak of ending the violent conflict, although Russian troops are said to have suffered heavy casualties and lost morale from failing to achieve their goals.

And Judi suggested the leader’s body language indicated he’s unlikely to back down any time soon.

She said: “I know as an alpha he looks very battered and unwell. I’m a little suspicious of the fact that it reminds me a bit of you, those fireworks you set off on fireworks night and they don’t go off, that wet squib? And someone has to go out there and poke their toe at it and it suddenly explodes…

“There’s something about his body language that implies, ‘Don’t poke your toe at that yet.’ He may have looked ill, but when he went to his speech, we changed his condition significantly.

Choosing the moment Putin took the stage, Judi noted that the 69-year-old went from a “slightly insecure” look to a determined demeanor.

“That’s what worried me because when an Alpha is under siege, when it’s showing weakness, that’s when it can be the deadliest,” she continued.

“Here we could see a reboot from that slightly pathetic body language to someone seething with anger. There were a lot of angry signals, especially when he spoke about what he thinks the West has done to Russia.”
