According to Daily Mail on May 22nd, former MI6 chief Richard Dearlove predicted in a recent podcast that Putin might step down in 2023 and be sent to a sanatorium, which he described as the best way to allow a peaceful transition of power without coup. Dearlove believed that Nikolai Patrushev, secretary of the National Security Council, could succeed Putin as Russian president should such a scenario happen.

In addition, Putin was rumored to suffer from throat cancer, thyroid cancer as well as Parkinson’s Syndrome and must undergo a surgery, which made the stability of the Russian regime a matter of universal concern.
