IS PUTIN DEAD? Zelensky Says He’s “Not Sure” if Russian Despot is Still Alive

Speculation about Russian President Vladimir Putin has long been swirling, but is it possible that he’s no longer alive? Because that’s a possibility that Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky apparently thinks might be true.

Speaking virtually at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland on Wednesday, Zelensky urged Western countries to continue sending military assistance to his country before making an eyebrow-raising comment.

“Right now, I don’t understand who to talk to. I am not sure whether the president of Russia is still alive,” Zelensky said. “I don’t understand that he’s still alive or that it is him particularly making decisions.”

Report after report cites unnamed Kremlin sources that Putin is deathly ill, but no concrete evidence has emerged yet of those rumors being true, though various videos of the Russian president certainly raise questions.

Zelensky’s comments take a leap that nobody else has yet suggested. Does he know something we don’t?

  1. Is this news site just a kiddie illusionist imagination outlet with full of stupid conspiracies or is this a legit mature outlet that we can rely on so we shouldn’t go to other goyeshe news sites?
    Please site only accurate information on this site so we should feel some confident to rely on it.
    Thank you.

  2. Desperate- I actually googled this story as I was curious how such a thing is possible. It’s a real legit story.
    Some news sites wonder why Zelensky actually phrased it this way as Putin was seen in public just a few days ago)

  3. I am not sure about Putin being dead, but this i GUARANTEE, this cheap comedian Zelensky will not be alive within the next 12 months.
    Putin is ready to launch an all out war on Ukraine, and the inevitable outcome will be the complete destruction of Ukraine and a dead Zelensky.
    This demented Alzheimer diseased treasonous America hating zombie DemonRat in the White House, instead of pushing Zelensky to sit down with Putin,and agree to some of his demands, this criminally insane idiot is pumping hundreds of billion in arms to Ukraine, knowing full well that it will eventually become completely destroyed.This on top of the 80 billion of arms he deliberately left for the murderous Taliban.
    This demented rat, is not only out to destroy his own country, by completely eliminating its borders and thereby encouraging the invasion of tens of millions of illegal third world criminals,but is out to destroy Ukraine and all of Europe with it.
    Voting for a demented alzheimer diseased traitor, has tragic consequences, and its right in front of our eyes.
    God have mercy on this once great nation of ours

  4. D2U and YG: It’s a “legit story”, but the legit story is NOT that Putin may be dead, it’s that Zelensky SAID Putin may be dead. There’s no reason to suppose it’s true. But the fact that Zelensky said it is legit news. Is he cracking up? Does he have secret information? Or is he just deliberately spreading misinformation for his military advantage, and if so should the world’s news industry be playing along with his deceptions?

  5. not sure about anything other than the fact the this third generation gentile Zelensky will end us Jews on the tips of an ice berg….Hashem is having a great time…no retribution Ukraine is being tossed like a strawberries being washed in a colander …..the Gentile Zelensky is the one who is ‘dead’

  6. Dear Yeshiva World,
    Please delete the comment of chugibug.
    We are living in America and President Biden is our president.
    We were always taught in school that we must have a ton of respect for our president.
    This guy who wrote a nasty comment, does not represent the Jewish nation.
    Hashem made sure that the donkey will disappear, in order to be certain that bilaam won’t get embarrassed.
    President Biden is a real Mentsch and negative comments does not befit the Jewish nation.

  7. True or not, why this negative approach towards Ukraine. True they’re not tzadikkim but is it only about Ukraine? First, there are many fine Ukrainian people that died due to the war and allowing Russia to invade is the most stupidest thing I’ve ever heard; because that’s understood in the messages here! The war is really about the west and we know for a long time that Russia needed to be contained! I really have a difficult time understanding why Jews have reason to punish Ukraine for WW2! They were reshoim but the administration is currently not vs Russia where the administration are reshoim starting since they were a country. Achzarim for sure. The west cannot and should not let a bully get away with it.

    Chigibugi, what will preven Russia from claiming other western countries that they might believe in their stupid minds that it’s theirs? Also, don’t we see that Russia is a paper tiger!!!! It’s been show in history that all you need to do is tear the paper and no tiger!

  8. Most people are completely ignorant about what this war is all about.
    are you aware that this war is actually going on since 2014.
    It seems a lot of people are completely ignorant about this war, therefore let me give you a little history lesson.A large part of Ukraine has a majority of its population ethnic Russians,who don’t want to be under the Ukrainians, and want their territory annexed to Russia, and since 2014 a bloody civil war has been raging,with more than 15,000 Ukrainians killed mostly by their own government who brutally put down the revolt.
    That is why finally Russia entered the conflict in 2015 and invaded and annexed Crimea,with the overwhelming approval of its ethnic Russian.
    In the mean time in the other regions of Ukraine with a sizable ethnic Russian population there was going on a brutal and bloody civil war with over 15,000 dead.
    Another bone of contention, was Ukraines insistence in joining NATO,Putin has warned that he will never allow that, he doesn’t want ICBMS and nuclear weapons stationed on his border, neither the U.S would stand for it.
    Imagine Mexico joining an alliance with China or Russia,whereby they’ll have stationed nuclear loaded fighter planes on the U.S border would we tolerate this? Of course not.
    Putin has been begging for years Ukraine and the U.S ,to come to some kind of agreement whereby they promise not to join NATO,and have some kind of guaranteed autonomy in the regions with a sizable Russian population.
    And they were rebuffed time and again.
    And let’s not forget for over sixty years Ukraine was part of Russia it had no independence, remember Nicolai Kruschev the leader of the Soviet Union was from Ukraine.
    To say that if Putin gets away with invading Ukraine, the rest of Europe is next, is just idiotic and childish.
    And that ignoramus, who claims that Russia is a paper tiger, let’s not forget this so called paper tiger, has the biggest nuclear arsenal in the world, even bigger than the U.S.
    Therefore for the U.S not to push for Ukraine and Russia to sit down for peace talks, is absolutely mind boggling.
