Security guards had to help the 70-year-old tyrant to a sofa nearby before doctors arrived, sources have said.
He is believed to have stumbled and fallen onto his back, sliding down a couple of steps on his side.
A source said: ‘The incident took place in front of the president’s bodyguards, who reacted quickly and rushed to Putin’s aid.
‘Three security officers helped the president to get to the nearest sofa and called the doctors who are on duty at the residence.’
It is one of the latest claims reported by Russian Telegram channel General SVR which suggests the warmonger is suffering from multiple health problems.
The channel claims to have sources in Putin’s entourage and said medics ‘arrived within a few minutes, but could not immediately examine the president’.
This is because he is suffering ‘cancer of the gastrointestinal tract, as a result of which he already experiences serious problems with digestion’ – and the fall caused an ‘involuntary’ reaction.
