Kremlin Rejects Putin Health Rumours, Says He Is Fine

by sima88

LONDON (Reuters) – The Kremlin said on Thursday that Russian President Vladimir Putin was in good health, dismissing rumours that he is unwell.

Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov told reporters there had been speculation in the West about the president’s health in recent months, but reports he was ill were “nothing but fakes”.

“It was very hot in Tehran yesterday, plus 38 (degrees Celsius), and the air conditioning was very strong there. So I apologize,” Putin, 69, was quoted as saying.

CIA Director William Burns was asked about the issue during a security forum in the United States on Wednesday, where he said that Putin was “entirely too healthy”.
