The Russian president was reportedly stricken with “acute illness, weakness and dizziness” during a 90-minute virtual meeting with military leaders and doctors told him not to make “lengthy” public appearances.

According to the General SVR channel on the Telegram messaging app, the sudden illness was the real reason Putin’s annual livestream on the hotline was postponed with no plans to reschedule.

The Q&A session – which would see the politician answer questions from Russian citizens – was scheduled for later this month or early July, but it is now unclear whether it will ever happen.

General SVR said: “The postponement of the live (direct line) with the President sine die is due to the unstable health of Vladimir Putin.

“A week ago, the president was preparing to answer questions from Russian citizens at the end of June-beginning of July.

“But his doctors have advised him not to make any lengthy public appearances in the near future.

“The final argument for not speaking to the public was an incident after a recent hour-and-a-half video-link meeting with representatives of the military bloc…

“After the meeting, Putin felt acute malaise, weakness and dizziness when trying to get up from the table.”

Despite the claims, the 69-year-old president made a rare public appearance in Moscow on Thursday when he addressed young entrepreneurs, engineers and scientists at an event marking the 350th anniversary of the birth of Peter the Great.

He said in a speech, “What was (Peter) doing? Pick up and reinforce. That’s what he did. And it seems like it behooves us to pick up and strengthen as well.

The General SVR channel claims to receive inside information and has previously alleged that Putin has cancer and Parkinson’s disease.
