Questions about Russian President Vladimir Putin’s health continued to swirl Wednesday as he missed his beloved annual ice hockey game – appearing instead on a video sporting mysterious marks on his face.
Putin pulled out of the Night Hockey League game in which he had been “expected” to compete and sent a video message while at Sochi, the Black Sea resort where the match was scheduled to take place, East2West News reported.
Adding to speculation about the strongman’s health were dark blotches on his cheeks that may have been masked by makeup.
“I wish you good luck in your ice battles and all the best,” Putin said in his message. “And as they say, ‘May the best win.’”
