Moscow| Russian President Vladimir Putin will step down in January 2021 next year after being in power for 20 years, according to reports. Putin has symptoms of a dangerous Parkinson’s disease, after which his girlfriend persuaded him to resign as president so that the health problem does not turn serious. Putin has been in power for the longest period after the Russian ruler Stalin. Recently, Prime Minister of Japan Shinzo Abe had also stepped down due to health reasons.

According to British newspaper The Sun, Vladimir Putin is preparing to step out of active politics early next year. Sources associated with the Russian President’s Office in Kremlin said that the 68-year-old Putin has seen symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. After the detection of the disease, apparently, his girlfriend Alina Kabeva persuaded him to relinquish power. For a long time, power in Russia has been either with Putin or his close associate Dmitry Medvedev.

Recently, video footage had surfaced in which Russian President Putin was seen shaking his leg continuously. He was also seen in excruciating pain while sitting in a chair. Similar symptoms are found in a patient of Parkinson’s disease.

Speculations of Putin’s departure from active politics were rife last week when a law was passed in the Russian Parliament. Under this, Putin was given the right to remain a senator even after resigning. Putin has also been guaranteed that there will not be any lawsuit against him and to provide salary and allowances and facilities.
