Russian President Vladimir Putin was captured on camera shaking uncontrollably while in a meeting with Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko in February. In a recent video released of the meeting, Putin showed definitive signs of hand and leg tremors triggering even more speculations of the strongman suffering from Parkinson’s disease.

According to Express, a previous video of the Russian leader released over the weekend showed Putin visibly holding one hand to his chest with the other clenched into a fist. He was seen gripping a desk for more than 10 minutes while in a meeting last week with his defense minister sparking more rumors that he could be enduring a degenerative disease. Talk of his probable illness was also partly associated with his invasion of Ukraine.

In the footage of his meeting with Lukashenko, the Belarusian president is greeted by Putin and as he walks toward him, his right thumb seemingly makes a movement that observers say resembles a spasm. The leader strides forward to welcome his European ally looking somewhat unsteady with his steps as he walks with a stiff and wobbly gait. He can be seen standing up with his hand starting to tremble as he attempts to ease the tremors and pulls his hand close to his body.

During the meeting, Putin was observed constantly fidgeting in his seat while tapping his feet constantly as he grips the arm of his chair for some support.

Just last week, Putin attended a televised meeting with his defense minister Sergei Shoigu in videos of which, the leader looks bloated while slouching on a chair. His appearance prompted speculations of Putin battling cancer. There has been talks as well that he has been enduring signs of dementia.

Although the Russian president has successfully unyielded to claims of a failing state of health in the past months, his recent videos have fueled more speculations. The footage which was first published online by Visegrad24 is now being used to direct viewers to keenly observe Putin’s hand and leg tremors, citing how the video is the clearest proof that something is not quite right about Putin’s state of health.
