AI-generated Putin asks Putin about his rumoured body doubles – video


The Russian president, Vladimir Putin, appeared briefly lost for words on Thursday when confronted with an AI-generated version of himself.

The deepfake ‘double’ was one of dozens of callers from around the country who were shown putting questions to Putin via video link during his annual news conference. There has been recurrent speculation, particularly in western media, that Putin has one or more body doubles to cover for him in some public appearances because of alleged health problems. The Kremlin has denied that and said the president’s health is excellent.
