A Kremlin insider told the Telegram channel General SVR that Vladimir Putin might start a nuclear war because of his deteriorating health and lack of options, said reports.

Due to the pharmacological therapy for a serious disease, the Russian president experiences "weakness, dizziness, and loss of appetite."

According to the channel, Putin has become "withdrawn and laconic" because of this therapy.

"According to the close circle of Putin,” the Telegram broadcast claims, “he has become withdrawn, laconic, practically does not receive anyone, and, in general, looks deeply concerned in recent days."

According to the source, Putin's war on Ukraine was even sparked by the drug therapy for his ailment.

"The war exists in the head of one terminally ill man with a disturbed psyche who is trying to take as many people as possible with him to a mythical 'paradise'," says General SVR.

The treatment, according to the alleged insider, is negatively affecting his "psycho-emotional state," which could lead him to make even more terrible threats.

Vladimir Solovyov, a spokesperson for Russian propaganda, urged Putin to launch nuclear attacks on Poland, France, and Britain.

Additionally, a number of analysts assert that Putin, who is terminally sick, has nothing to lose by attacking the West.

Putin has Parkinson's disease in its early stages and pancreatic cancer, according to The Sun.

Putin will "die very soon of cancer," according to Ukraine's spy chief, who made the prediction earlier this month. However, wanted war criminal Igor Girkin believes Putin might be overthrown in a protracted civil war.

Putin, according to Abbas Gallyamov, a former employee of the Russian president, who served from 2000 to 2010, will hand over the reins to a carefully selected successor before retiring to his infamous Black Sea palace.

Putin will most likely abstain from running in the 2024 elections, according to Gallyamov, and instead, try to hand over power to a technocrat successor who can mediate a settlement to the war with Ukraine and the West.

The inner circle of Putin no longer considers him a "guarantor of stability," and they are concerned about Yevgeny Prigozhin's emergence as the leader of the Wagner mercenary force, which is currently loyal to the Kremlin but may turn against an elite that they perceive as having failed in the war, he claimed.
