A prominent Ukrainian military official claims the “real” Russian President Vladimir Putin has remained out of public view for over a year.

Major-General Kyrylo Budanov surmised the Kremlin has been using doppelgangers and body doubles for Putin since the war in Ukraine started. He also said he wasn’t sure if Putin was still alive, according to the Daily Star.

In an interview, Budanov claimed the Putin “everyone used to know was last seen around June 26, 2022.”

Budanov added that “there might be so many different reasons” why Putin allegedly hasn’t been spotted for some time.

When asked if he knew whether Putin was alive or not, Budanov responded, “I don’t know what to answer you.”

In the past, Putin reportedly said he had fielded inquiries into whether or not he wanted to used body doubles —like other Russian leaders had done. The beleaguered president however, refused the offer, the Daily Star reported.

The rumors about Putin possibly using body doubles have been swirling for some time now. While they may be rumors, some are convinced of their veracity.

Political analyst Dr. Valery Solovey believes there is no chance the “real” Putin will be able to take part in the 2024 presidential election, the Daily Star reported.

“He can hardly get out of bed, with difficulty getting dressed," Solovey alleged.

He also claimed, “President Putin…simply will not be able to participate in the elections…will not be able to, physically. President Putin cannot put his own trousers on without external assistance, let alone participate in elections. And if he puts them on without external help, he then needs to rest afterwards.”

According to Solovey, Putin “is in such terrible physical shape” and is getting worse.
