VLADIMIR Putin will end up being killed like Saddam Hussein and Colonel Gaddafi, Ukraine’s spy chief has said.

Major-General Kyrylo Budanov said the Russian tyrant is suffering from “several serious illnesses” including cancer though he “will not die tomorrow”.

But instead he will suffer the same fate as the dictators of Iraq and Libya, who died at the hands of their own people when their brutal regimes were toppled.

His prediction comes as he revealed Putin recently survived an assassination attempt and amidst numerous reports about the Russian leader’s declining health.

“Look at the history of any dictator of the 20th and 21st centuries,” the 36-year-old head of military intelligence said in an interview with Ukrayinska Pravda.

“They ended the same, absolutely all.  None of them ended differently. In most cases, they died against their will. 

“Take recent examples, such as Saddam Hussein, the former Yugoslav dictator, the Libyan dictator.”

Saddam Hussein’s blood soaked rule of Iraq was brought to an end when the US and UK invaded in 2003.

After initially evading capture, was dragged out of a hiding hole, put on trial for crimes against humanity and eventually hanged, in November 2006.

Libya’s Colonel Gaddafi’s brutal regime came to an end on October 20, 2011, when he was cornered by a revolutionary mob.

He was killed in a frenzied execution staged by rebels after being found hunkered down in a storm drain in Sirte, Libya.

Budanov said that despite Putin’s declining health, including cancer, he will continue to rule.

“He has several serious illnesses, one of which is cancer,” he said.

“But it is not worth hoping that Putin will die tomorrow. He has at least a few more years. Like it or not, but it’s true.”

Budanov claimed Putin was in a “confused” state mentally and has “significantly reduced people’s access to people”. 

Asked if he believes Putin is grooming a successor, Budanov said this was an “interesting question” suggested his medical condition has made him “manic” and stopped him.

“Looking at some of his manic syndromes, he is likely to be afraid to seriously prepare a successor, realising that in preparation, this successor may want to take the chair a little earlier than Putin himself wants. 

“Therefore, he keeps everyone at a certain distance. And he believes that he will rule forever. But it will not be so.”

Recent weeks have seen reports that Putin has undergone surgery and while he has been seen grimacing and twitching in on TV.

Budanov also revealed there was an “unsuccessful attempt” against the Russian President’s life at the start of the war against Ukraine. 

It was not left clear who was behind the alleged attack or where it took place.

Russian leader has reportedly escaped four assassination attempts in the past making him resort to having his own sniper squad tasked with keeping him alive.

Putin was said to travel everywhere with the elite shoot-to-kill sniper unit.

The crack-shot snipers have one very important job which is to locate other shooters and “take them out” before they get the chance to pull the trigger on Putin.

The Russian President is said to have become obsessed with the idea someone is out to get him, which makes him seek protection in his isolated bunker.
