Vladimir Putin took a cancer specialist with him on regular trips away from Moscow, according to a new investigation that raises further questions about his health.

The Russian president, the report says, is frequently visited by doctors in the resort city of Sochi and keeps a thyroid specialist at his side.

The specialist, Yevgeny Selivanov, of Moscow’s Central Clinical Hospital, has allegedly flown to Sochi with the president 35 times, according to documents purporting to show hotel bills.

The claims have been published by Proekt, an investigative journalism outlet that was founded in Russia but which is now blocked by the Russian government.

It calls Mr Putin’s health problems “the main secret of the Kremlin”, and it details the various occasions on which ill health appears to have interfered with Mr Putin’s activity as president.

The report suggests that Mr Putin secretly underwent surgery last autumn, saying that the president “did not appear in public for the entire month of September. In medical circles, it is believed that the president was undergoing a complicated procedure related to some kind of thyroid disease during this period.”

But the claims by Proekt support speculation that Mr Putin has thyroid cancer and that steroids have been used in his treatment.

Steroids, it is theorised, would explain the new puffiness in the president’s face.

The report claims that Mr Putin also bathes in deer antlers as an alternative therapy. Sergei Shoigu, currently Russia’s defence minister, introduced Mr Putin to antler baths in the early 2000s. The extract is taken from the antlers of red deer, removed with a saw in springtime, when the antlers are full of fresh blood.

Clinics that sell antler baths claim that the practice bestows various health benefits. Those benefits, according to a clinic in Siberia’s Altai Mountains, include “male potency.”

The report says: “An acquaintance of the president claims that he had been warned that there is no conclusive evidence of the benefits of antler baths. But Mr Putin liked it, and since then he has revisited Altai multiple times.”

Mr Selivanov is one of several doctors to have frequently visited Mr Putin, the investigation claims. During an eight-day period in August 2017, the report says, six medics were in Sochi, including Mr Selivanov and the otolaryngologist – a term for head-and-neck surgical specialists whose remit can include the thyroid – Alexey Shcheglov.

The report says that “Putin has publicly demonstrated an interest in the problem of thyroid cancer” and refers to the president’s stringent isolation.

Referring to infamous long table at which he hosted Emmanuel Macron, with Mr Putin seated several metres away from the French president, the report says: “Putin has spent the Covid-19 pandemic in a way that no head of state in the world has ever done: the Russian president held most of his meetings via video link, and only allowed the few visitors to see him after a two-week quarantine and a stool test. It was obvious that the leader’s health was the number one priority.”Photo Credit: Getty
