Vladimir Putin wants to take the world with him when he dies, and has already decided to use tactical nuclear weapons in Ukraine, an “expert” said of his “failing health.”
Political scientist Valery Solovey, former professor at the prestigious Moscow Institute of International Relations [MGIMO]made the sensational claims ahead of the Russian despot celebrating his 70th birthday on Friday.
This is because Russian Orthodox churches have been ordered to hold special prayers for his health on Saturday, despite the Kremlin insisting he is healthy.
“The decision in principle on the use or demonstration of tactical nuclear weapons has been made,” said Dr Solovey, who was consulted by Western embassies in Moscow after making claims about Putin’s medical condition.
‘The question is how, when and where. I have no doubt we’ll end up on the brink of death, but I know we can pull back. We’ll be able to get through this.’
He claimed that the current situation is more dangerous and closer to the “nuclear apocalypse” than it was during the Cold War’s Cuban Missile Crisis.

“The cause is Russian President Vladimir Putin who is serious about demonstrating the capabilities of nuclear weapons – tactical nuclear weapons,” he said. Putin cannot be beaten. He has two more tools up his sleeve – mobilization, which he uses [and] nuclear weapons.’
Solovey said Putin is in “very poor physiological health.”
He has long claimed that the Russian warmonger suffers from serious illnesses, including cancer, Parkinson’s disease and schizoaffective disorder.
This is disputed by Western intelligence, with CIA director William Burns saying in July that Putin is “completely too healthy,” though acknowledging that this was an informal assessment of the Russian leader’s health.
There has been much speculation about Putin’s health in recent years, especially with the increased attention he has received since he ordered the invasion of Ukraine.
In July, the Russian president was pictured clumsily slapping mosquitoes off his face. Likewise, during a huge Victory Day parade in Moscow in May, he appeared to limp and had a blanket over his lap, while in April he was seen holding a table during a televised meeting with his defense minister.

Meanwhile, fears are growing that Putin will resort to more drastic measures in a bid to win the war he started on February 24.
Even as the Kremlin began to absorb parts of Ukraine in a sharp escalation in the conflict, the Russian military suffered new defeats that exposed deep problems on the battlefield and opened fissures at the top of the Russian government.
The setbacks have seriously tarnished the image of a powerful Russian army and increased tensions over a poorly planned mobilization. They have also fueled fighting between Kremlin insiders and increasingly cornered Putin.
“The president is unable to adequately assess the situation and make the right decisions,” Solovey said in a new video as Putin celebrates his 70th birthday in his home city of Saint Petersburg. “The state of health is such that he has a very strong desire to take the world with him.
He knows he will die in a limited time – and how is it possible for the world to move on without him? Why would the world exist without its brilliant leader Vladimir Putin?’ he asked sarcastically.
Solovey warned the West in a new video he posted not to rely on senior Kremlin officials to step in to prevent him from going nuclear.

“Don’t be fooled, don’t hope anyone in the Russian establishment will stop Putin,” he said. ‘These people have resigned’ [to the idea] Putin will take this first step.’
Russia has multiple options for firing tactical – or battlefield – nuclear weapons if Putin gives the order despite the West’s strongest warnings that he will face immense retaliation. One possibility is its nuclear-capable Iskander missiles.
Some were moved to the border with Finland in May, while they were also deployed with conventional warheads during the Ukrainian war.
dr. Solovey – who is not a doctor but claims to have sources in high Kremlin circles – claimed last week that Putin’s health is “deteriorating dramatically.”
“Modern therapy, targeted therapy for oncological diseases, is of such quality that you literally work until the last hours,” he said.
He was asked whether CIA Director William Burns said Putin — far from sick — was “too healthy.”
Solovey replied that this was a “perfect example of Anglo-Saxon sarcasm” adding: “The Americans know what to do with [Putin].
“They know the real situation and are even concerned about it.”
Solovey’s comments came as reports said the Orthodox Church, led by close Putin supporter Patriarch Kirill, will hold special prayer sessions for the president’s health the day after his 70th birthday.
Putin will meet the leaders of ex-Soviet states on his birthday in St. Petersburg.
The Kremlin has said Putin is in good health.
Meanwhile, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky on Thursday defiantly said his country must fend off the invasion of Moscow “so that Russian tanks do not advance to Warsaw or again to Prague.”
At a meeting in Prague of European heads of state convened by French President Emmanuel Macron, Zelensky also called on Western capitals to provide his army with more weapons “to punish the aggressor.”
The EU on Thursday imposed its latest round of sanctions on Russia, extending its ban on trade and individuals over Moscow’s annexation of four Ukrainian regions.
The measures, which came into effect with their publication in the bloc’s official administrative magazine, also pointed the way to an oil price cap for Russian crude transported around the world, but only after details have been worked out within the G7 group of to land.
On the ground in Ukraine, relying on weapons supplied by the West, Ukraine has followed up last month’s gains in the northeastern region of Kharkov by pushing deeper into the occupied territories and forcing Russian troops to withdraw from the city of Lyman, an important logistics hub.
The Ukrainian army has also launched a wide-ranging counter-offensive in the south, capturing a series of villages on the western bank of the Dnieper River and advancing towards the city of Kherson.
The Ukrainian victories in the Kherson region followed relentless attacks on the two main crossing points across the Dnieper, rendering them useless and forcing the Russian forces on the western bank of the Dnieper to rely solely on pontoon crossings, which were also repeatedly hit by the Ukrainians. .
Phillips P. O’Brien, a professor of strategic studies at the University of St Andrews, predicted more Russian failures in Kherson, noting that it’s “hard to stabilize a line when your logistics are stretched, your troops are exhausted.” and your opponent much, much smarter.’
Pressed against the broad river and suffering from severe supply shortages, Russian forces face imminent defeat that could set the stage for a potential Ukrainian attempt to regain control of the Crimean peninsula, which Moscow annexed in 2014.
How sick is Putin really? Ever since Russia invaded Ukraine, there have been rumors that Vladimir has Parkinson’s or even cancer. CHRIS PLEASANCE from MailOnline takes truth from rumors in this video
