Kiev, Kharkiv... Ukraine's major cities are now surrounded by Russian troops. Vladimir Putin, who has established himself as a tough President, seems to have no intention of backing down on his invasion of Ukraine.

The transformation of Vladimir Putin

At almost 70 years old, Vladimir Putin does not seem to have aged a wink, with almost no wrinkles appearing on his face. Since the Russian President is very concerned about his physical appearance, it could be assumed that he is a fan of plastic surgery. Some believe that the politician takes steroids daily to keep his eye area young.

These rumours, which have never been denied by Putin, arose in 2011 when he appeared at a rally in Kiev with black eyes. His bruises caused quite a stir and it was rumoured that he had Botox injections.

The government spokesperson denied the rumours at the time. ‘It's probably the way the light has fallen. The President is tired,’ he said. Since then, Putin's face looks smoother and all his wrinkles have mysteriously disappeared. According to the Mirror, numerous plastic surgeons have suggested he has undergone Botox treatment in the forehead area and had his lower eyelids lifted.
