Paranoid Putin has 'special bodyguard' whose job it is to collect 'his poo'
Vladimir Putin’s poo is collected and sent back to Moscow in a special suitcase whenever he travels abroad.And it’s not only his excrement that is scooped up, his urine is also saved and shipped back to the Russian capital by a Federal Protection Service bodyguard.That is the bizarre claim made by author Regis Gente and journalist Mikhail Rubin, in a report for the French news magazine Paris Match.The collections occurred on Putin’s trip to France on May 29, 2017, and also during his October 2019 trip to Saudi Arabia.Video footage taken during a trip to France in 2019 showed six men accompanying him to a bathroom, with one of his entourage holding a small briefcase, although it was not revealed what was in it.His bodily fluids are placed in a specialised bag so it can be returned to Russia in a suitcase. One theory as to why this happens is that the Russians so paranoid about their ‘enemies’ getting their hands on information about Putin’s health, that they don’t want any of his DNA being discovered.Russian journalist Farida Rustamova has known about about the strange arrangement for time and wrote on Twitter: “As far as I know this peculiar system is arranged somewhat differently.“At least sometimes all secret substances are being destroyed immediately on the spot.
