    New video footage of Vladimir Putin has actually included even more fuel to the theory his health remains in quick decrease.

    The Russian leader might be seen swaying and biting his lip throughout an Easter mass service in Moscow on Sunday.

    At points, he would push his fingers to his forehead and shut his eyes securely.

    It comes simply days after he was shot clutching the corner of a table throughout a conference.

    He was seen slumped over in his chair and appeared tired while talking with Russia’s defence minister Sergei Shoigu.

    Anders Aslund, a previous consultant to Russia and Ukraine, stated both males appeared improperly, explaining them as ‘depressed and seemingly in bad health’.

    Experts have actually stated Putin’s sluggish motions and significantly ‘frail’ look might be an indication he is experiencing Parkinson’s illness.

    The Kremlin has actually consistently rejected reports Putin is unhealthy.

    Sunday’s Easter service was performed by the Russian Orthodox Church, which highly backs the war in Ukraine.

    During the event, Putin stood to one side while holding a red candle light.

    Footage of the service was transmitted live on Russian state tv, however rumours have actually spread out that the Kremlin leader’s clips may have been pre-recorded.

    Russian outlet The Village reported: ‘Putin is standing in the very same fit and with the very same candle light as on May 2, 2021.

    ‘This is evidenced by a photo report from the temple on the Kremlin website.’

    Investigative Outlet Agentstvo recommended the clips had actually been ‘distorted’.

    They reported: ‘In the broadcast of the Easter service from the Cathedral of Christ the Saviour, Putin appeared to vanish for a minute.

    ‘This took place throughout the changing of shots, from a close-up with the president to a more basic one …

    ‘The place where Putin should be seems to be empty.’

    Just a day ahead of Moscow’s Easter occasion, Russian rockets had actually drizzled down on the city of Odesa.

    Among the victims were Valeria Hlodan, 27, her child child Kira, and Valeria’s mom Liudmila.

    Anton Gerashchenko, a consultant to the ministry of internal affairs, stated: ‘Odesa will never ever forgive murder of its kids.

    ‘An whole household died– Liudmila Yavkina, her child Valeria and her three-month-old granddaughterKira Hatred is filling our hearts.

    ‘This was an ordinary yard of an ordinary apartment block in Odesa. It was a holiday, the Saturday before Easter, so there were children playing in the yard, there was laughter, there was life.’

    Across Ukraine, sombre Easter events were kept in churches and within military camps.

    President Volodymyr Zelensky had actually stated: ‘Today was Holy Saturday for Christians of the EasternRite The day in between the Crucifixion and theResurrection It appears that Russia is stuck on such a day.

    ‘On the day when death triumphs and God is supposedly gone. But there will be a Resurrection. Life will defeat death. The truth will defeat any lies. And evil will be punished.’
