You might have seen a million videos of Russian President Valdimir Putin walking. Did you ever notice something strange? You might have never noticed this but there’s a strange pattern to the way Vladimir Putin always walks.
If you look closely, President Putin’s right arm is always locked while he’s walking. It remains completely straight in its place while the left arm swings freely. This strange way of Vladimir Putin’s walking has given rise to a number of theories and some even speculate that these are early signs of a serious health disorder.
Some people have speculated that the Russian President is probably going through the early signs of Parkinson’s disease. It is a neurodegenerative disorder that affects the nervous system and, in turn, body movements.
But experts have now finally found the real reason as to why Putin walks like that. To Begin with, it has nothing to do with his health. Actually, it is Putin’s history that helped experts crack the mystery behind Putin’s walk. Vladimir Putin worked as a KGB foreign intelligence officer for 16 years and the KGB manual describes the perfect way how a KGB officer should walk, in order to handle weapons at any time.
Interestingly, KGB’s instructions completely match the way President Putin walks, the right arm held rigid and left swinging freely. So, Russia’s President is not suffering from Parkinson’s disease, rather it is a habit derived from years of training.
