Putin was caught twisting his foot and twitching his leg during a summit with Jong Un at a Russian space station on Wednesday.

According to a video of the incident obtained by Daily Mail, the Russian leader struggled to control his own foot and leg while the North Korean dictator sat just inches away from Putin at the Vostochny Cosmodrome in the Amur Oblast.

Other sources suggested that Putin was nervous about his meeting with Jong Un, and both leaders were reportedly flanked by numerous bodyguards over concerns about potential assassination attempts.

Meanwhile, Putin and Jong Un met for a one-on-one meeting shortly after their tour of the Russian space station on Wednesday, and the North Korean leader remarked that Russia is fighting a “sacred war” against Ukraine and the West.

“Russia has risen to a sacred fight to protect its sovereignty and security against the hegemonic forces,” Jong Un said. “We will always support the decisions of President Putin and the Russian leadership and we will be together in the fight against imperialism.”

Other sources suggested the twitch was a result of Putin's ongoing health issues.

"What'll matter now is if both sides can find suitable prices they're willing to pay for the other's assistance," one source familiar with the meeting said this week. “This could open up the possibility of North Korea transferring more sophisticated weaponry to Russia.”

Putin’s twitching leg during the summit also marked the latest incident to create concern regarding the 70-year-old Russian leader’s allegedly deteriorating health.

According to Valery Solovey – who serves as a professor at the Moscow State Institute of Foreign Affairs – Putin is battling cancer and another health issue that is “psycho-neurological in nature.”

“One is of a psycho-neurological nature, the other is a cancer problem,” Solovey recently revealed. “The second diagnosis is a lot, lot more dangerous than the first named diagnosis as Parkinson's does not threaten the physical state, but just limits public appearances.”

According to Valery Solovey, Putin is battling cancer and another health issue that is “psycho-neurological in nature.”

“Based on this information people will be able to make a conclusion about his life horizon,” he continued, “which wouldn't even require specialist medical education.”

Meanwhile, the Kremlin has repeatedly denied the rumors and reports regarding Putin's seemingly deteriorating health.
