 Putin Has Cancer. He Has Three Years Left - US Media

President of Russia Vladimir Putin is seriously ill - this was reported by "Page Six," an addition to the New York Post magazine.

News outlets from Belarus to Poland have reported for months that the Russian strongman has cancer of the spinal cord. But the author of the article, Richard Johnson, says it's pancreatic cancer, one of the most lethal forms of the disease, Censor.NET reports.

As put by the author, Putin has three years to live and wants to leave a legacy of expanding the Russian borders just like Peter the Great or Stalin. This is why he is so in hurry with invading Ukraine, Richard Johnson wrote.

According to PageSix, Putin is allegedly being treated by an elderly doctor from the old East Germany whom Putin met decades ago while serving in Dresden for the KGB. "The doctor has been trying various treatments including steroid shots, which would explain Putin's puffy appearance.

"The physician, who is 84 years old, quit recently, confiding that he hated coming to Russia and was always mistreated by Putin's security detail."

Johnson cites Сrispin Black, the British army veteran who reports on terrorism and intelligence, that Putin's pardon and release of his former crony Mikhail Khodorkovsky, after 10 years in prison, was an ominous sign.

"Some have suggested [Putin] is clearing his conscience," Black wrote.
