Putin allegedly severely ill with blood cancer

Putin allegedly severely ill with blood cancer
May 13 2022 Share

According to new emerging news reports, an oligarch with close links to Vladimir Putin has been recorded saying that the Russian president is ‘very ill with blood cancer’. 

The oligarch is believed to have discussed Putin’s health with a Western venture capitalist, with the conversation having been recorded without his permission. 

With the oligarch’s name not revealed, the report comes after there was further speculation over the leader’s health after his attendance at the Victory Day parade in Moscow.

The oligarch said that Putin was ‘crazy’, especially when it comes to his Ukraine operation. The oligarch said that the Ukraine war absolutely ruined Russia’s economy and that ‘the problem is with his head.’

The health of the Russian despot is a subject of much speculation, and it is unlikely there will be clear confirmation on this matter.

A ban has been placed on demolition and excavation works within touristic areas for the period of 15th June up to the 30th of September. 

The areas which will see the prohibition are the localities of Cottonera, Floriana, Sliema, Gzira, Mellieħa, Rabat, Mdina, Marsaskala, Birzebbuġa, Marsaxlokk, Swieqi, St Paul’s Bay, Wied Iż–Żurrieq and Floriana in Malta.

As for Gozo, the localities are Qala, Sannat, San Lawrenz, Victoria, Marsalforn, Għasri, Mġarr, Għajnsielem, Xagħra and Xlendi. 

The Planning Authority released a statement saying that the enforcement is one way of mitigating the nuisance that construction sites have on both the tourism industry and the number of Maltese families who move to summer residences. 

‘The demolition and excavation phases at a construction site are by far the greatest inconvenience for the surrounding neighbourhood’ read the statement. Any illegal works carried out during this period can be reported to the Building and Construction Authority. The full list can be found here.
