Putin ‘too healthy’, CIA director says

Vladimir Putin is “probably too healthy”, the head of the CIA has said, playing down rumours the Russian president is suffering a serious illness such as cancer.

William Burns, in a rare public appearance, also said Russia’s leader would be proved wrong in a belief he can win a bloody war of attrition against Ukraine – as he had previously been proved wrong to assume his forces could capture Kyiv within the first few days of the invasion.
