According to a report, Vladimir Putin is terrified that foreign powers will get information about his state of health. His paranoia goes so far that he allegedly has his excrement collected and sent to Moscow.

It’s a report that packs a punch: the French magazine Paris Match writes that on all of Putin’s trips there is always a secret service agent with him whose only job is to collect the Kremlin ruler’s excrement.

A bodyguard then flies the “material” back to Moscow in a special suitcase. This should prevent foreign powers from getting hold of Putin’s DNA or being able to draw conclusions about his state of health through analyzes. According to “Paris Match”, this has been the case since 2017 at the latest.

A source from Saudi Arabia confirmed the information to the newspaper. Putin visited there in 2019. Sources then spoke of a “special” FSO officer – the very man collecting the faeces. The research was carried out by Paris Match together with a journalist from the respected Russian investigative platform Projekt.

The report does not appear to be entirely improbable. At least there is a report from a completely harmless source that Vladimir Putin actually travels abroad with his own toilet. That’s what actress Julia L ouis-Dreyfus said in 2020 on “The Late Show” with Stephen Colbert.

She reported to the baffled show master that the museum staff had told her during filming in the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna that the Russian President had also been there once. Outside the museum, a special private bathroom was set up just for him – so that Putin didn’t have to go to the “normal” toilets in the museum.

In fact, on June 5, 2018, Putin was on a visit to Austria and visited the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna.

And: There is a video showing Putin’s bodyguards at the 2019 Normandy summit in Paris. Six agents accompanied Putin to the toilet at the time.

One then carries a suspicious suitcase with him when he goes out…
