The French magazine reported that Russian embassy staff have been asked to maintain "absolute secrecy" amid intense pressure.

FPS agents are reportedly responsible for the security of top Russian officials. The Russian president's health has been a matter of speculation for months ever since the Ukraine war with some reports indicating that he might be suffering from cancer, however, it has never been corroborated and the Kremlin has repeated dismissed Putin's health rumours.

The bizarre phenomenon was earlier reported as a video surfaced online shared by a BBC journalist as two guards were seen coming out of the room with a guard carrying a special suitcase and they were followed by the Russian president along with two other guards.

A British media report had said Putin's strange practise has been continuing since he came to power and is seen as an attempt by Russian officials to conceal the president's health reports from falling into the hands of foreign intelligence services.
