Vladimir Putin may soon disappear from public view while undergoing cancer surgery and handing over “control” to an uncompromising ex-KGB boss, an insider claims.

In extraordinary unverified claims by the popular General SVR Telegram channel, Putin is set to undergo cancer surgery in the “near future.”

The General SVR Telegram channel first raised questions about Putin’s health — including abdominal cancer and Parkinson’s — about 18 months ago. Its source is said to be a well-placed Kremlin figure.

The Russian leader, 69, is said to be planning to hand over “control” of the invasion of Ukraine to Security Council secretary and former KGB counterintelligence officer Nikolai Patrushev while he goes under the knife.

Patrushev, 70, is considered a key architect of Ukraine’s war strategy and the man who convinced Putin that Kyiv was being invaded by neo-Nazis, the Mirror reports.

The General SVR-Telegram said: “Putin was recommended to undergo an operation, the date of which is being discussed and agreed. There doesn’t seem to be any particular urgency, but it can’t be postponed either.”

It indicated that Putin had already postponed the operation, which was said to have been scheduled for the second half of April.

It is now unlikely that it will take place before he presides over the grandiose Red Square on May 9, Victory Day, to commemorate Hitler’s defeat.

Regarding the claims, the outlet said: “I don’t know exactly how long [he will be incapacitated after the surgery]… I think it will only be for a short time.”

It has previously been claimed that Putin also suffers from Parkinson’s disease and a “schizoaffective disorder”. The latter is defined as “a mental health disorder characterized by a combination of symptoms of schizophrenia, such as hallucinations or delusions, and symptoms of a mood disorder, such as depression or mania”.

The Kremlin has always firmly denied that Putin has any medical problems and portrays him as in robust health, even during several mysterious absences in recent years.

The claims come amid speculation that Putin will announce all-out war in Ukraine and order a mass mobilization of military-age men. Such a move would be considered high risk as many might refuse to fight.

Just days ago, during an unpredictable tirade on Russian state television, one of Putin’s henchmen threatened Britain that it could be wiped out by a nuclear missile in “202 seconds”.

Despite this reluctance, UK Defense Secretary Ben Wallace has warned that Putin could attempt to start World War III in just two days by “mobilizing” his citizens.
