VLADIMIR Putin’s security agents are forced to collect his feces and urine and deliver them back to Moscow in a “special suitcase”, according to sources.
The Russian president has several secret service agents assigned to this key task, which is supposedly carried out to hide information about Vlad’s possible illnesses.
French magazine Paris Match said the bizarre practice was first noticed in 2017 during a state visit to France.
It was also observed during an October 2019 trip to Saudi Arabia.
“We learned from indirect sources in the Middle East that this delicate mission was conducted under the control of the FSO (Russian Federal Guard Service),” he wrote.
An official was ordered to put Putin’s poop in specially designed bags and deliver it to Russia in a special suitcase.
The FSO also states that embassy officials who are aware of this must maintain strict confidentiality.
It’s the latest example of Putin’s strange toilet habits making the news.
In 2019, a strange video showed the paranoid Vlad being escorted to the bathroom by six male bodyguards during Ukraine peace talks at the Élysée Palace in Paris.
At the time, a former head of the German intelligence service told BILD that Putin’s actions were “outrageous”, describing them as an “open provocation and threat”.
Meanwhile, independent Russian news outlet Baza wrote in February that those close to the president are forced to send stool samples several times a week under “enhanced security measures”.
He said that due to Covid restrictions, many Kremlin employees were also forced to spend almost the entire year in quarantine.
The US magazine New Lines reported that weakened immunity and “profoundly irrational or paranoid behavior” are two of the main side effects of prednisone, a common steroid used to treat blood cancer.
Putin’s health has been the subject of speculation for some time.
The Moscow Central Clinical Hospital, which treats high-ranking politicians, is reported to have signed a deal with four hotels in the Black Sea resort of Sochi, where Putin has a summer residence.
A team of doctors is said to travel to Sochi whenever the Russian president is staying at his palace in the city.
Between 2016 and 2020, lead oncologist Dr. Shcheglov reportedly flew to Sochi 59 times, spending 282 days with Putin.
Your colleague, Dr. Selivanov, traveled to Sochi at least 35 times in the same period, for a total of 166 days.

This follows reports that Putin received “urgent medical help” this week after being stricken with a mysterious illness.
Russia’s president reportedly received orders from his doctors not to make “long” public appearances.
Vlad is said to have fallen ill while talking to his military chiefs and suffered “acute illness, weakness and dizziness” as he rose from his desk after a 90-minute virtual session.
The allegations appeared on the General SVR channel on the messaging app Telegram, which is allegedly run by a Kremlin member.
He said Putin “needed urgent medical assistance” from doctors.

While the Russian president’s annual TV Q&A was suddenly postponed this week, fueling more rumors of ill health.
Putin is suffering from various health problems and appears weakened in recent appearances amid his disastrous invasion of Ukraine.
From having a heavy blanket over your lap at a parade to appearing to shake uncontrollably during a meeting, onlookers wonder what’s going on with Vlad.
And that latest abrupt delay will only fuel those rumors – with suggestions that he may suffer from early-stage Parkinson’s, cancer or even dementia.
Putin’s Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov addressed Putin’s health rumors for the first time recently, declaring on state TV channel TF1: “I don’t think anyone with a good head can see any signs of illness or illness in this person”.
Kremlin press secretary Dmitry Peskov also insisted the president’s health was “excellent”.
However, a former KGB agent has exclusively told The Sun Online that Putin is suffering from dementia and is going insane from his paranoia.
Former Russian spy Boris Karpichkov, 62, said even members of Putin’s inner circle would not be informed of his health to protect his image as a “strong man”.
The Russian defector, who now lives in the UK, said the paranoid Putin views everyone as a “traitor” – and his health was an “especially sensitive issue”.
