When Putin did appear in China, online sleuths and supposed experts claimed a conspiracy. One source alleged that Putin was so ill he struggled to converse with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

“Putin had to communicate personally with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Despite feeling very bad, the Russian President held this conversation, even with some enthusiasm, and after the negotiations, he went on vacation again,” the alleged whistle-blower claimed, adding that Russia’s leadership was turning governance into a circus with Putin look-alikes.

Both Putin and his administration have denied the allegations of using body doubles. Nevertheless, a significant portion of the public remains convinced that the person they see is not the real Putin, believing the Kremlin's supposed deception is headed for a dramatic collapse, which support for a Ukrainian victory would hasten.
