Putin will be resigning next year

Kremlin spokesman, Dmitry Peskov denied the report that Putin is going to quit next year and said the media report was false.

Kremlin spokesman, Dmitry Peskov denied the report that Putin is going to quit next year and said the media report was false. According to an article by Britain's Sun newspaper, President Vladimir Putin is expected to resign from his post in early 2021. The article states that Putin may have Parkinson’s disease and cited Professor Valery Solovei, a Russian political pundit, who suggested earlier this week on a Moscow radio station that Putin was under pressure from his entourage to step down due to fears for his health.

The media report was rejected by Kremlin on Nov. 6. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said the media report based on Solovei’s assertions was false. “It’s absolute nonsense,” said Peskov. “Everything is fine with the president.” Asked if Putin was planning to step down in the near future as Solovei had suggested, Peskov said: “No. His health is excellent."
