A different bloodbath

NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!

Their digging up of the earth earned them the label “undesirable organization”. This suggests that they are exposing uncomfortable truths. This means that their investigative team is now working in exile. Roman Badanin, editor of the magazine “Proekt” has a contract at Stanford University for the year. There are worse places to get stuck far from home. But Badanin can’t go home, or he says he’ll be thrown in jail. Between his obligations at Stanford and his work on revelations about the Russian government, he says he “crowdfunds” like crazy to keep his scattered team of reporters afloat.

“Proekt’s latest investigation revealed that Russian President Putin may be quite ill – at least quite concerned about his health and possibly concerned about aging. One detail of the report that jumps out at you is that a specialist in the thyroid cancer is said to have made 35 trips to see the Russian president, spending 166 days with him, over a recent four-year period. And this doctor is not the only one to visit Putin’s retreats away from the Kremlin and during periods where he was mysteriously out of public view for relatively long periods of time.

Russian President Putin can shut down rumors about his health at any time, simply by going out in public.


“Russian propaganda is creating the image of a 100% healthy sports-addicted president. And all of a sudden we found out he was literally surrounded by doctors,” Roman Badanin told Fox News. . “In total, we have 60 doctors who have traveled with him on different occasions each time, for example, when he goes to Sochi (Putin’s favorite Black Sea resort), they travel. On the same route, on the same dates. Again, after the investigation was published, we received confirmations, of course unofficial, that at least we were right that Putin is really worried about his health.” Badanin and his colleagues carried out their investigation by finding the contracts of these doctors affiliated with a public hospital and matching some of their trips to those of Putin – for example, when he traveled to his retirement from Sochi. The contracts would indicate that these doctors were staying in a hotel near Putin’s house. Surprisingly enough, the paper trail is public. Tracking movements in this way allowed them to employ a technique similar to that used by opposition leader Alexei Navalny and the Bellingcat investigation unit to track down Navalny’s stalkers and poisoners.

Among the other doctors apparently in the president’s orbit – an expert in resuscitation, someone who is said to have written a manual on the treatment of acute illnesses, injuries and poisonings, as well as neurologists. Badanin says the thyroid cancer specialist’s alleged relationship with Putin doesn’t necessarily mean the president has cancer, or that cancer. The only thing certain is that the doctor in question, Yevgeny Selivanov, received his doctorate in thyroid cancer according to Badanin. He can focus on other areas now. There are long rumors about Putin’s health. Every time he disappears from view, tongues stir. Her suddenly smooth appearance sparked speculation about the use of botox a few years ago. The recent puffiness, some say, suggests he is on heavy medication and it has led to all sorts of theories about what could be making him sick.


Another angle to the “Proekt” story is Putin’s alleged fascination with alternative medicine. “During his second term, Putin decided to live forever and rule forever, because one day he realized that his health was the number one priority. Among other things, he tried alternative medicine “, Badanin said. “We found out that he was really interested in the so-called bloodbaths practiced in the Altai region. In fact, they take baths with the boiled blood of deer. And we know for sure that Putin tried these baths at least once.” Badanin said he spoke to someone who did the same treatment on the same day. And he explained that the blood is drained from the soft, sprouting young antlers of the deer.

There have clearly been a few sports injuries along the way and Badanin says Putin is suffering from back problems as a result. But the Kremlin will attest to the good health of the Russian president. And will undoubtedly dismiss deer bloodbaths as the most fake of fake news. It’s hard to imagine someone sitting so far away from visitors at his now famous long table soaking in animal blood. But Badanin insists he has the inside scoop on the right supplies and apparently much of Russia’s elite, starting with Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu, has taken the plunge.


Badanin admits that in the context of the past, Putin, on the eve of turning 70, surpassed those who came before him. “He is much healthier than all of his predecessors, including Yeltsin, who quit at the same age, or Brezhnev, who was almost ousted at the same age, and Andropov even died at 70,” Badanin said. “But again, he’s reigned for 23 years. I think this time has affected him a lot. It’s not an easy task to lead such a great country for 23 years. And of course, I think he has a lot of psychological and health problems.
