Russian President Vladimir Putin to resign amid Parkinson's concerns, reports claim

Russia ‘Doing Everything’ to End Fighting in Nagorno-Karabakh New bill set to expand Russian ex-presidents' immunity from prosecution

Solovei claimed that Putin may be suffering from Parkinson's as the president has been seen recently exhibiting symptoms of the disease.

Moscow sources close to Mr Putin have claimed the 68-year-old leader has begun developing symptoms of Parkinson's, which affects the brain and can cause shaking and stiffness.

Speculation has also been fuelled by the fact legislation introduced by Putin is now being rushed through parliament, to guarantee immunity from prosecution and state perks for former presidents, for life.

Former presidents already enjoy lifetime immunity for crimes committed in office under legislation adopted after Russia's first post-Soviet president, Boris Yeltsin, handed the reins of power to Putin at the turn of the century.

Infact, the recent footage in which Putin was seen constantly moving his leg from here to there and according to health experts, they said that Putin looked like he was in pain. "He intends to make public his handover plans in January", he added.

And in 2012, BBC quoted then-Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda as saying that Putin postponed a visit to Japan because his "health condition is bad".

It would expand the current Russian law that says that sitting Presidents can't be charged criminally for actions during their terms.

The bill would allow lawmakers to rescind immunity for former Presidents with a two-thirds majority from Russia's twin-legislative chambers, and requires approval from both before it is ascended to law.

The Sun cited Professor Valery Solovei, a Russian political pundit, who suggested earlier this week on a Moscow radio station that Putin was under pressure from his entourage to step down due to fears for his health.

"This is not innovation from the point of view of global practice".

But the British Medical Journal said in 2015 the phenomena could easily be mistaken for early stages of Parkinson's disease.
