In an unexpected twist that has captured the attention of both Russian and international media, whispers surrounding the fate and well-being of Russian President Vladimir Putin are swirling. The source of these rumors? A mysterious Telegram channel named “General SVR” and statements from the well-known political analyst Valery Solovey, both claiming that Putin has passed away and that a body double has been secretly filling in for him for several months.

The rumor mill suggests that Putin’s last breath was on Thursday, October 26th. Despite the lack of concrete evidence to support these sensational claims, the detailed accounts provided by General SVR and Solovey have heightened the intrigue, leaving many to wonder about the veracity of their statements.
Valery Solovey is a seasoned observer of Russian politics, known for his sharp wit, logical reasoning, and deep insights. His credibility and eloquence make it difficult to dismiss his claims outright, leading to speculation that there might be a grain of truth in his statements. With the presidential elections in Russia scheduled for March 2024, the timing of these rumors is critical. They have the potential to sow seeds of doubt about Putin’s health, his very existence, and the legitimacy of his government.

In response to the swirling rumors, the Kremlin, through Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov, has quickly labeled the claims as fake news. However, Peskov’s reputation for falsehoods has only added fuel to the fire, with many left wondering if the denial is indeed a confirmation.
Behind these rumors, there are two main theories about the potential forces at play. The first theory posits that Solovey and General SVR are positioning themselves as opposition leaders, seeking to create chaos and uncertainty in order to challenge Putin’s authority. The second theory suggests that they might actually be agents or spokespeople for powerful elites within the establishment, aiming to delegitimize Putin’s regime from within.
