Telegram channel General SRV claimed Putin died over the weekend.

According to the Telegram channel General SRV, which claims to relay information from a Kremlin insider, Putin died at his Valdai residence last week.

"There was a 'viewing' of the double of the late Russian President Vladimir Putin by a representative composition of the permanent members of the Security Council of the Russian Federation. In essence, the understudy has already held similar meetings, but this was during Putin’s lifetime, and now Nikolai Patrushev has arranged a kind of acceptance of the understudy in the image of the President by everyone who is related to the first and, partially, the second circle of people close to the 'President,'" the channel posted.

The channel added that Putin's new "understudy" had allegedly been recognized and is "ready to accept the new rules of the game."

"It is worth noting that the double held both a meeting with permanent members of the Security Council via video link and a face-to-face meeting with representatives of the Security Council, the Government and the leadership of law enforcement agencies," General SRV's post continued.

"Nikolai Patrushev believes that everyone present at the meetings thus recognizes the understudy as the 'President' and is ready to accept the new rules of the game – and a grandiose game is being started."
