Russian despot Vladimir Putin has had 35 secret meetings with a cancer doctor – and bathed in the blood of deer antlers, according to a report on Friday.
The investigative report from Russian outlet The Project tracked the medical care 69-year-old Putin has received since he became president of Russia a decade ago – and raises serious questions about his health.
“As the President has aged, concerns about health and longevity have so consumed the President that he has even shown an interest in unconventional medicine, although many members of his family, including previously unknown ones, are physicians,” the report said.
For example, Putin has reportedly started bathing in the blood of deer antlers sawed off the animals in the spring, when the horns are “soft and covered in blood,” the report said. These so-called “antler baths” are a naturopathic practice in the Altai region of Russia, which borders Khazakstan and Mongolia. Putin has reportedly traveled there several times to take an antler bath.
It even seems to have started a trend.
“The … elites were quick to spot Putin’s new hobby,” The Project said. “Antlers and other ways of prolonging youth quickly became popular among officials.”
The report also documents alleged evidence of serious problems affecting Putin.
The report compares public records to Putin’s known disappearances and trips to his dacha or refugee home in Sochi, and paints a picture of a leader being treated for chronic conditions.
“The project can say with certainty that on at least two occasions Putin either had surgery or underwent a very serious procedure, most likely in the area of his back,” the report said.
One of Putin’s most frequent visitors is an oncologist named Evgeny Selivanov. Selivanov has visited the Russian leader 35 times in four years, The Project said.
The report suggests that the Russian president secretly underwent another operation last fall, adding that he “did not make any public appearances throughout the month of September.
“It is believed in medical circles that during this time the President underwent a complicated procedure related to some form of thyroid disease,” the report reads.
Dmitry Peskov, the Kremlin’s official spokesman, has reportedly denied any suggestion that Putin has cancer.
