AN SAS-trained facial recognition expert believes Vladimir Putin is so paranoid about being assassinated that he is using body doubles.
Graham Yuill has revealed the telltale signs that he says make it glaringly obvious that the tyrant regularly relies on doppelgangers.
The terror expert, who served in Northern Ireland to root out radicals, suspects the Russian President is laying low to avoid being executed by one of his long list of enemies.
With whispers of a coup swirling and an international arrest warrant hanging over his head, Putin is more panicked than ever.
His heightened fears have only fuelled rumours he is hiding away and sending lookalikes on public appearances in case of an ambush.
The warlord’s recent trip to Mariupol raised eyebrows after people pointed out numerous inconsistencies in his facial features.
Graham is one of the growing number of sceptics who believe Putin is using near-perfect body doubles – backed up by his years of experience in biometrics.
He says a string of key markers have “convinced him beyond reasonable doubt” that the despot is using doppelgangers.
The 65-year-old discussed the images of Putin in Mariupol and explained why he suspects something was amiss.
The expert face analyst, from Glasgow, told the Daily Record: “Each person’s face has unique characteristics that can determine if he is real or fake.
“However the photographs last week of Putin in Ukraine do not match all his facial characteristics.
“The hair, ears and eyes were perfect. But his nose, chin and the space between the nose and the lips – called the Philtrum – were wrong.”
The private security consultant also raised questions regarding Putin’s entourage who accompanied him on the visit to the stricken city.
Graham continued: “The people protecting him did not look like professional guards either.
“There was also not the normal high levels of security that you would normally see for such a visit such as an armoured vehicle.
“You can tell by just looking at the photograph of Putin that something is not quite right.”
He thinks that the Russian President is paralysed by his increasing paranoia surrounding the prospect of his assassination.
Graham added: “Recently, I carried out specialist security work with a Home Office-approved company based in the centre of Glasgow.
“My job was to identify likenesses of people who had applied for visas to live in the UK.
“I am convinced beyond reasonable doubt after studying recent footage of Putin moving around Ukraine that he is using a body double because he is paranoid of being assassinated.
“The double is even trained to walk like him and may have had surgery on his ears.”
Despite denying he has had any tweaks, the warlord is believed to have undergone several cosmetic procedures over the years.
Rumours are rife that he now relies heavily on his “understudies” to stand in for him as he struggles to disguise his ailing health.
Bombshell spy documents leaked to The Sun appeared to confirm he has pancreatic cancer and early-stage Parkinson’s disease.
It is alleged that Putin enlisted several lookalikes to go under the knife for plastic surgery to ensure they closely resemble him.
It comes after Ukraine already teased the tyrant for supposedly “sending a lookalike to war-ravaged Mariupol.”
Kyiv official Anton Gerashchenko posted three images of Putin’s chin and questioned whether they belonged to the same man.
He taunted: “What’s up with your chin, Putin?”
“Looks like lately his make-up artists (i.e. for the recent trips of the bunker man to the occupied Crimea and Mariupol) had to work with quite a low-quality copy, not even a double but its copy.
“I wonder which one of them was real?”
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky previously suggested that the leader may already be dead, amid suspicions he used a “chroma key” green screen to fake meetings that he did not really attend.
Two former Putin associates have also suggested that the despot uses body doubles.
