Russian President Vladimir Putin carries a suitcase filled with his own excrement and urine for fear that it would reveal too much information about his health if it fell into the wrong hands, according to reports.
“Putin fears the possibility of any information about his health falling into the hands of foreign intelligence,” Rebekah Koffler, president of Doctrine & Strategy Consulting and a former DIA intelligence officer, told Fox News Digital.
“He wants to project the image that he will rule Russia indefinitely in order to deter any chaos associated with a change of power.”
A report by Paris Match via the Moscow Times reveals that Putin has a special assistant from the Federal Guard Service who takes care of the suitcase, which contains his feces and urine collected during his travels, and brings it back to Moscow.

Koffler explained that Putin is likely worried that anyone is using the feces as evidence of some kind of weakness in the Russian president’s health.
“While there is much speculation about Putin’s terminal illness, information about his health is inconclusive,” Koffler said. “Barring a terminal illness, Putin is likely to be president of Russia until at least 2024 and possibly until 2036, given his popularity skyrocketed after the invasion of Ukraine. .”
Putin has an 81% approval rating despite scattered protests since the start of the invasion of Ukraine.
Reports of Putin’s health circulated before the start of the invasion, with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov denying last week that the Russian president was seriously ill.

“You know, President Putin appears in public every day. You can see him on the screens, read his speeches, listen to his speeches,” Lavrov said. “I don’t think sane people can discern any symptoms of illness in this man.”
A recent recording reportedly revealed a Kremlin-aligned Russian oligarch saying that Putin was gravely ill with blood cancer.

Reports prior to the invasion suggested Putin had remained isolated to avoid showing signs of ill health. Critics pointed to his long periods of isolation as a questionable cause for judgment before and during the invasion of Ukraine.
