The Kremlin has called the latest reports regarding Russian President Vladimir Putin's alleged ill health an "absurd hoax," asserting he is in good shape. Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov also refuted claims that Putin employed body doubles. This came after an unverified report by a Russian Telegram channel, which some Western media outlets even circulated, claimed that Putin, who turned 71 on October 7, suffered a severe health incident on Sunday night.
