Vladimir Putin is dying in agony from terminal bowel cancer, according to intelligence reports from the Pentagon and in Ukraine.
It is believed his “puffy face” is a sign he is taking chemotherapy drugs or steroids.
His unsmiling expression shows he is in constant pain, US sources say.
This could have made him more aggressive or he may be attacking Ukraine as he knows he is dying and wants to leave a legacy.
An ex-military intelligence officer now working at the Pentagon said analysts have been studying Putin, 69, and believe he is gravely ill.
The source said: “In the past we have seen him smile, but in 2022 there are few pictures of him looking happy.
"His look suggests he is in pain and our people suggest his angry look is most likely as a result of him being in agony.
“Our people are confident he is ill – he is concerned about Covid as he keeps his staff at a distance.”
