Skip to comments.Is Putin suffering 'delirium and confusion' due to Long COVID? Questions arise over Russian leader’s mental state after rumours of cancer and Parkinson’s disease

With the eyes of the world on Vladimir Putin, questions are being asked about the Russian leader's state of mind after he announced the invasion of Ukraine in 'rambling, terrifying, apocalyptic' fashion.
Rumours surrounding the Russian leader's health have been swirling for years, with repeated reports suggesting that he is suffering from cancer and Parkinson's disease.
On top of that, the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on both the President's physical and mental health can't be underestimated, and it's been suggested that brain fog as a result of Long Covid could be impairing his cognitive function.
Although it's not clear if he's had the virus, the Sputnik vaccine is not known to be reliable and after isolating in September after members of his inner circle tested positive he disappeared from view for a long period in October.
The US thinktank The Council For Foreign relations has speculated that, after behaviour and statements that are 'off' and 'not right,' he is suffering brain fog induced by Long Covid.
What's more, the isolation caused by the pandemic itself could have left the 69-year-old even further detached from reality, with one neuropsychologist claiming the 'progressive isolation' could have led to hubris syndrome, which 'diminished his ability to weigh up risk'.
Speaking to FEMAIL, Clinical Director at Medicine Direct. Hussain Abdeh explained how a person's mental state could be uprooted by the virus.
He explained: 'Research early on into the pandemic also found that a small number of people who tested positive for COVID-19 experienced sudden behavioural changes including delirium, confusion, and agitation.'

But brandon is okay huh? NOT the babylonbee.
Tard vs. Tard ?
Many said he sounded like a crazy madman in his pre invasion speech
plus this operation has huge risks and almost zero rewards
many thought he was just bluffing simply because it made no sense
Coulda, may, might. Pure speculation but he still need to be removed from power.
OMG. How many millions of lives’ are caught between the judgment of Brandon and Putin? We are most certainly doomed.
Maybe we can make a deal with them. They depose their doddering idiot and we’ll depose ours.
These are unserious people who just cannot cope with reality. Bad people do BAD things, prime example.. Brandon!
As I noted on a related thread, the first two operating principles of our Democrat/corporate/media establishment are (1) lie 100% of the time, and (2) always accuse your opponents of what you are doing yourself. Given that Biden is obviously “unhinged” and suffering from “dementia”, I suspect such reports about Putin are completely fabricated. And once again, this is NOT intended to suggest that I endorse ex-KGB (or ex-CIA) officials as heads of state...
Lol, he’s Einstein and Hercules rolled into one next to Brandon.
I wish I could share more,but for now I can say it’s pretty obvious to many that something is off with #Putin
He has always been a killer,but his problem now is different & significant
It would be a mistake to assume this Putin would react the same way he would have 5 years ago
...questions are being asked..
A whole lot of passive voice going on there.
The author presumably wouldn’t have to rely on that trick if sources were available to be quoted on the record.
In other words he's smearing Putin with something that accurately describes Jao Bai-din.
Jao Bai-din is filling his diaper at home in Delaware this weekend while Ron Klain and other "consultants" run the country.
GREAT! Both Putin and President Poopy Pants are mental defectos! I guess I can forget about ever getting a good night's sleep again.
At least Biden can’t launch a nuke by himself
Pukin is crazy but not stupid. Braindead is both.
Who knows what to believe maybe this story is just a psyop designed to start a story, help it grow and hope to affect morale of the Russian people
“...this is NOT intended to suggest that I endorse ex-KGB (or ex-CIA) officials as heads of state...”
So is it safe to say you didn’t vote for or approve of George H.W. Bush? He was CIA Director during the Carter administration.
Thank goodness Biden is fit and in command. This could get ugly.
Part of the information war. Disregard half and throw the other half away. If Putin is insane and/or ill, how does that affect our strategy? Unpredictability could be an advantage for Putin. Or it could be a pretext for preemptive action by NATO.
