Vladimir Putin looks ‘drained’ of ‘weariness’, expert says

Vladimir Putin looks ‘puffy’ with physical signs of ‘weariness’ as his brutal war in Ukraine continues to stagnate amid Russian military failures, claims a body language expert.

The crazed Russian dictator was seen leaning his hands on a table as he addressed a Security Council meeting earlier today (May 20).

Reports from Ukraine following his country’s bloody invasion have not been good for the former KGB agent, with his top generals apparently beginning to plan a loss in Eastern Europe after heavy losses.

Putin’s health has also been in question, with top Kremlin officials considering ousting their leader.

Dictator rumored to be seriously ill

Body language expert Judi James said to the mirror that he looked exhausted during his last appearance.

She explained, “His body pose suggests reduced energy levels. He is leaning on his forearms which are both resting on the table.

“It’s a common pose in boardrooms, but when we look at Putin’s hands, the flesh looks slightly cupped on the table, suggesting a strong bow.”

Earlier reports speculated about the president’s “serious” health issues, saying he was suffering from blood cancer and Parkinson’s disease.

Ms James continued to say she thought her face looked ‘more evenly puffy’ but admitted it could be created by ‘the lighting’.

She said: “The suggestion of low energy levels seems to be underlined when he appears to be trying to realign his posture at one point, leaning back in a stretch and pulling his elbow as if trying to take a position. straighter.

“His left elbow is doing a little pumping motion towards his ribs at this point, which could be a sign that he’s rebooting his power and energy signals.

“It doesn’t look like a man totally on the ropes, but some of the more subtle cues suggest possible weariness.”
