Sources claimed that Patrushev and a Putin body double took over for the Russian leader last month.

Sources claimed that Patrushev and a Putin body double took over for the “late” Russian leader following his purported death late last month.

"For the first time in the history of the existence of nuclear missile weapons, our country is ahead of its competitors in this domain,” the Secretary of Russia's Security Council said in Moscow this week.

Patrushev also reportedly commented on Russia’s "unique strategic weapons” including “hypersonic ones” and vowed that the nation’s nuclear arsenal "will guarantee Russia's security for many decades."

According to Daily Star, Patrushev previously served as director of the Federal Security Service and is a strong supporter of Russia's ongoing invasion of Ukraine.
