‘Dying’ Putin ‘wants to take world with him’ by using nuclear weapons

Russian president Vladimir Putin hopes to take the world with him according to one expert that alleged his "failing health" would push the despot to use nuclear weapons.

Despot Putin, who is set to celebrate his 70th birthday on Friday (October 7), has allegedly already taken the decision to use tactical nuclear weapons according to one expert.

Political scientist Valery Solovey, former professor at Moscow's Institute of International Relations, claimed the warmonger is dying and wants to take the world with him.

The claim comes amid Russian Orthodox churches being ordered to hold special services this Sunday (October 9) to pray for Putin's allegedly ailing health.

Speaking on the state of Putin's health, Dr Solovey said: "The decision in principle about the use or demonstration of tactical nuclear weapons has been made.

"The question is how, when and where. I have no doubts that we will end up on the edge of death, but I know we will be able to back off. We will be able to go through this."

Solovey went on to claim that the situation currently is closer to "nuclear apocalypse" than that of the Cuban missile crisis of 1962.

Dr Solovey continued: "The cause is the Russian president Vladimir Putin who seriously intends to demonstrate the capabilities of nuclear weapons – tactical nuclear weapons.

"Putin cannot allow himself to be defeated. He has two tools left in his sleeve – mobilisation, which he is using [and] nuclear weapons."

The political expert piled the claims higher still, alleging that Putin was suffering from "very poor psychological health", despite Kremlin officials claiming Putin is in good health.

Political expert Solovey warned that the "state of his health is such that he has a very strong desire to take the world with him."

He continued: "The president is not able to adequately assess the situation and make proper decisions. He knows that he will pass away in a limited time – and how is it possible for the world to carry on without him?

"Why should the world exist without its genius leader Vladimir Putin? Don't be deluded, do not hope that someone in the Russian establishment will stop Putin."

Solovey warned: "These people are resigned [to the idea] Putin will take this first step."

It would appear that such worries have travelled to those in Ukraine, with civilians handed out potassium iodine tablets in the event of a potential nuclear strike on the country.
