Vladimir Putin's leg twitched uncontrollably this week during a high-stakes meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, sparking a major debate on whether the Russian leader was nervous or was it a sign of his deteriorating health, according to sources.

During a summit with Jong Un at a Russian space station on Sept. 13, the 70-year-old Russian leader was seen twisting his foot and twitching his leg.

According to a video obtained by Daily Mail, Putin struggled to control his own foot and leg while the North Korean dictator sat just inches away from him at the Vostochny Cosmodrome in the Amur Oblast.

While many people seemed to point the twitch to rumors of Putin’s health concerns, other sources said both leaders were reportedly flanked by numerous bodyguards over concerns about potential assassination attempts, reported.

After their tour of the Russian space station, Putin and Jong Un met for a one-on-one meeting and the North Korean leader talked about Russia fighting a “sacred war” against Ukraine and the West.

“Russia has risen to a sacred fight to protect its sovereignty and security against the hegemonic forces,” Jong Un said. “We will always support the decisions of President Putin and the Russian leadership and we will be together in the fight against imperialism.”

During an official state dinner between the two nations, Putin raised a glass and said, “A toast to the future strengthening of cooperation and friendship between our countries. For the wellbeing and prosperity of our nations, for the health of the chairman and all of those present.”

As Front Page Detectives previously reported, Jong Un’s visit to Russia this week was the North Korean dictator’s first international trip in more than four years.

The summit also reportedly included a discussion about North Korea supplying Russia with weapons to help support Putin’s ongoing war against Ukraine, reported.

One source familiar with the meeting said, "What'll matter now is if both sides can find suitable prices they're willing to pay for the other's assistance. This could open up the possibility of North Korea transferring more sophisticated weaponry to Russia.”
