CIA chief: No intelligence that Putin is in bad health

Source: BBC News [UK state media]

“There is no intelligence that Vladimir Putin is unstable or in bad health, the director of the CIA has said. There has been increasing unconfirmed media speculation that Mr Putin, who turns 70 this year, may be suffering from ill health, possibly cancer. But William Burns said there was no evidence to suggest this, joking that he appeared ‘too healthy.’ The Kremlin has again dismissed the reports of Mr Putin’s ill-health as ‘nothing but fakes.’ … ‘There are lots of rumours about President Putin’s health and as far as we can tell he’s entirely too healthy,’ Mr Burns said at the Aspen Security Forum in Colorado.” (07/21/22)
