Putin spoke to schoolchildren in Kaliningrad on the occasion of the new school year. In addition to the objectives of the “special military operation”, as the Kremlin calls the invasion of Ukraine, he also spoke with them about Russian history.

“He claimed that the Russian Minister of Education told him that children in the Russian-occupied Donbas do not know that there is a bridge to Crimea or that Ukraine and Russia were once part of a united country,” he wrote on

Financial Times analyst Max Seddon, who supplemented the post with a video.

But social network users were more interested in Putin’s behavior than the content of his speech. The Russian president slouched in his chair, sat there, tapped his feet in half-boots on the ground or significantly twisted his ankles. The twitching of the lower limbs at times seemed completely uncontrolled.

Some users under Seddon’s post began to speculate that Putin’s behavior did not seem natural and could be due to various health problems. “The question is not what Putin does with his feet, but what his feet do with Putin. It looks like he can’t control them,” read one of the

. “He looks like he’s going to slide off his chair and onto the floor at any moment,” another user wrote.

The physical and mental health of the 69-year-old Russian president has been under scrutiny since the start of the invasion of Ukraine.

In recent months, a number of speculations have appeared in the media, some of which claim that Putin is seriously ill and is being treated for thyroid cancer, leukemia or Parkinson’s disease. The Kremlin calls such rumors “fabrications and lies”.
