My guess is covid. I don't want to say he's crazy, but his distancing is irrational.

When meeting with foreigners who do not want to go through Russia's COVID crap on top of their own at home, he's sat far away as a precaution (they say). ie, When Macron visited. With his own people, it can't be that. If he wanted his people vaxx'd, they would be.

Then again, increasing paranoia is a common ailment in murderous tyrants.

He's afraid he can't take his Billions with him.

He's afraid to reap what he has sown.

That's what happens when they use their money like that, they have to keep using it like that or it'll get them.

He's paranoid. This is a man who poisons people who oppose him. I can only guess in the mind of this madman, he's afraid of someone doing the same thing to him.

Nothing. Those are the biggest and most elaborate air hockey tables around. He beat Macron 3-2 in a thrilling encounter by all accounts

He's petrified of covid. He knows his country's public numbers are a lie.

Being fearful of possible harm is not the definition of paranoid. Just an FYI

That was like something out of Monty Python.
I wonder what vetting process Putin’s security detail has to go through. How does a paranoid shitheel let anyone get near him with a loaded weapon?

It kinda is:
What is meant by being paranoid?


Paranoia is the feeling that you're being threatened in some way, such as people watching you or acting against you, even though there's no proof that it's true. It happens to a lot of people at some point. Even when you know that your concerns aren't based in reality, they can be troubling if they happen too often.

???????????????

You have bolded the definition yet left out the essence of the definition, "Paranoia is the irrational and persistent feeling that people are 'out to get you'."

IRRATIONAL and PERSISTANT

The word from Russia is that anyone wishing to visit Putin has to pass through a special Covid disinfection tube. Don't know how true that is, but it's been repeatedly reported for at least a year now.

Putin no longer lives in Moscow or works at the Kremlin.

He is either at a state-house south of Moscow, his dacha near Sochi, or his residence in the gated Ozero community north of St. Pertersburg.
