Is Putin Dead?

Russian President Vladimir Putin died on October 26. At least, that’s what Russian telegram channel General svr and Russian political analyst Valery Solovey claim.

Attention! At the moment there is an attempted coup d’état in Russia! Russian President Vladimir Putin died [Thursday night] at his residence in Valdai. At 20:42 Moscow time, doctors stopped resuscitation and stated death. … The security of the president’s doppelganger has been reinforced. Active negotiations are underway. Any attempt to present the double as president after Putin’s death is a coup d’état.

Doppelganger? Solovey and General svr claim that the man we now see in the Kremlin is actually a “double” who looks like Putin and has been meticulously trained to emulate and speak for Putin. They say the double has been making appearances as Putin for years, particularly in recent months while Putin has supposedly been battling major illness.

No evidence: Rumors about Putin’s “fatal illness” should not be taken too seriously. The Kremlin’s denial of the reports may seem to strengthen the claims (in the spirit of “nothing’s true until Russia denies it”). But no evidence of Putin’s supposed death has been offered.

Sensational claims of the president’s death could be an attempt to undermine Putin’s legitimacy, as Russia’s presidential elections will be held in March 2024.

Prophecy says: Putin is alive and well. We know this because of his crucial role in Bible prophecy.

Trumpet editor in chief Gerald Flurry has identified Vladimir Putin as the “chief prince” of Ezekiel 38:2—better translated as “prince of Rosh.” This “prince of Russia” will eventually lead a 200 million-man army (Revelation 9:16), which will play a major role in the most barbaric war mankind has ever experienced.
