Vladimir Putin health news


Paul Urey, 45, from Manchester, was accused of being a spy after he was held with fellow Brit Dylan Healey on a mercy mission to rescue civilians.

Putin stooge Daria Morozova claimed the Brit died “due to illness and stress”.

“He was taken prisoner in April of this year while trying to break through a checkpoint controlled by the Donetsk People’s Republic servicemen,” she added.

She said Paul was suffering from “insulin dependent diabetes, damage to the respiratory system, kidneys and a number of diseases of the cardiovascular system” when he was captured.
