Vladimir Putin is reportedly using a cryogenic oxygen tank. The President of Russia has turned to using an oxygen tank, similar to the one previously used by pop star Michael Jackson, in a bid to extend his life.
According to the Daily Star Sunday newspaper, a Russian insider said on the Telegram platform, “Putin has now officially, totally gone ‘Wacko’. He has a cutting-edge cryo chamber in his mansion that doubles up as an oxygen tank … he gets in it with these ridiculously comical-looking glasses, white gloves and undies and socks, and thinks it is going to cure him of his ills. It is not. He is too far gone.”
The 70-year-old has reportedly had the oxygen tank installed at his mansion near Moscow. The Russian leader has also reportedly hired live-in Swiss doctors and a dentist to care for him.
Meanwhile, Michael Jackson released a photo of himself inside a hyperbaric oxygen chamber in the 1980s. The pop icon, who died in June 2009, aged 50, turned to the innovative technology in a bid to extend his life.
According to The National Enquirer, the “Billie Jean” hitmaker, who suffered second and third degree burns to his face and scalp while filming a commercial in 1984, said, “I’ve taken several long naps in a hyperbaric oxygen chamber and when I awoke I felt like a new person – I’ve never felt better.
I definitely want one for my home so I can sleep in it at night. I plan to get one immediately. I want to live to see world peace, a world without hunger, a world where children and all mankind know no suffering. I believe if I treat my body properly I’ll live to be at least 150.”
