Vladimir Putin ‘to resign early next year amid fears he has Parkinson’s’

The president of Russia is reportedly on his way out of office due to growing concerns over his health.

According to sources, recent footage of 68-year-old Vladimir Putin is showing possible symptoms of Parkinson’s Disease.

Furthermore, analysts claim that his ex-gymnast lover Alina Kabaeva, 37, is urging him to leave his position as president in order to care for his health.

Kremlin watchers who studied the latest footage of the president say his legs seem to be in constant motion and he looked to be in pain while holding on to a chair’s armrest.

In addition, his fingers have also been seen twitching as he held a pen and a cup speculated to have contained painkillers.

It is believed that his 20-year reign – only second to that of Joseph Stalin – could be coming to an end as recently laws were put in place to make him a senator-for-life when he steps down.

The legislation brought out by the president himself was being rushed through parliament to guarantee him legal immunity from prosecution and state perks until the end of his life.

Renown Moscow political scientist Professor Valery Solovei also suggested that Putin may have Parkinson’s symptoms.

According to him Putin’s lover, Alina, was putвting pressure on him to resign – along with his two daughters.

“There is a family, it has a great influence on him. He intends to make public his handover plans in January”, Solovei said

Solovei foresaw that Putin would soon appoint a new prime minister who would be set to become the new president. 

Putin’s staff have played down the rumors about his exit numerous times.
