Doctors of allegedly ailing Russian President Vladimir Putin are not expecting him to recover and are said to be “preparing his loved ones for the worst,” a Kremlin source has claimed.
Putin is said to have fallen ill on Sunday (October 22) after suffering from a heart attack, according the General SVR Telegram channel. The channel, which claims to post information from a Kremlin insider, often talks about Putin’s supposed terminal conditions and has also sensationally claimed all the dictator's recent public appearances have been carried out by a body double.
And the body double could be set for a long stint in charge after the Kremlin source behind the Telegram channel claiming the the doctors treating the real Putin are not expecting him to recover. The source said yesterday: “Over the past 24 hours, Vladimir Putin’s condition has not changed and remains stable and serious.

“The attending doctors say that a miracle will not happen and are preparing loved ones for the worst outcome.” And this morning (October 26), it was claimed that Putin's condition had worsened.
“Russian President Vladimir Putin's health condition has deteriorated somewhat over the past 24 hours,” they added. “The attending doctors are doing everything possible to stabilize the head of state’s condition, but they leave no doubt about the outcome.”

Despite the claims, Kremlin press secretary Dmitry Peskov was quick to shoot down the rumours earlier this week. Speaking on behalf of Putin – who has not given a public address of any kind for several weeks, Peskov said: “This belongs to the category of absurd information hoaxes that a whole series of media discuss with enviable tenacity – this evokes nothing but a smile.”
Peskov also called the news part of “absurd information hoaxes”. Putin, or a body double acting on his behalf, has been seen in public on a regular basis in recent weeks, but has failed to speak publicly or address any of the health rumours himself.
The Kremlin has constantly denied that the leader has any issues, however.
