The health condition of Vladimir Putin (71 years old) is “excellent.” A Russian doctor made this assessment during the president's visit to the autonomous region of Chukotka. In response to a question about his secrets for a healthy life, Putin said that he exercises for at least two hours a day. “And you also have to do what you love to do,” the head of state said.
Today, Putin visited the Chukotka Autonomous Oblast, the far northeastern region of Russia. The visit comes as part of Putin's tour ahead of the presidential elections scheduled for March 17.
During a meeting with residents of Chukotka, Putin received a surprising diagnosis from Denis Kloss, the head of the local hospital. Klos estimated that the Russian President enjoys “excellent health.” “He has a cheerful voice and a smooth step. He also expresses himself in a clear and understandable way. There are no other political leaders who come close to him,” Kloss said.
Exercise for two hours daily
Then the doctor asked Putin to reveal the secret of his good health and also wanted to know what the president does to relax. “There's a famous joke about that. How do you relax? “I don't get stressed,” the president joked, before admitting that life sometimes stresses him out. “But you have to do what you like to do,” he said. “And that's what I like.”
Putin also told Chukotka residents that he exercises for two hours every day. “Sometimes a little more than that,” he said. “Everyone should spend at least half an hour or an hour exercising every day,” he said. “It is one of the most important indicators of social development.”
Rumors about Putin's health have been circulating for years. In October, several Russian media outlets reported that the 71-year-old president had suffered a heart attack, a rumor that the Kremlin quickly denied. A rumor also regularly appears that the head of state is suffering from cancer. In April, photos of a mysterious scar on Putin's neck sparked speculation about whether he had undergone cancer treatment.
