Vladimir Putin has been given a maximum of three years to live by doctors, according to a Russian intelligence source.
The FSB officer said the Russian president, 69, “has a severe form of rapidly progressing cancer.”
And he added: “He has no more than two to three years to stay alive.”
The spy said the disease means Putin is also losing his sight.
He revealed: “We are told he is suffering from headaches and when he appears on TV he needs pieces of paper with everything written in huge letters to read what he’s going to say.
“They are so big each page can only hold a couple of sentences. His eyesight is seriously worsening.
