Putin's body doubles

According to a popular conspiracy theory, Putin uses body doubles. The theory is fueled by Putin’s presumed fear of close contacts with members of his team or the public (apparent in his use of the very long table for meetings and lengthy quarantines for people scheduled to meet with him). “Body doubles’, on the other hand, are meeting with people without any precautions. Another “clue” are some statements by Putin that are not supported by his official biography (e. g. he stated that he is a professional carpenter) as well as odd missteps by his entourage (e. g. Patriarch Kirill called him Vladmir Vasil’evich instead of Vladimirovich], etc. In popular culture, the alleged Putin’s body doubles have individual nicknames, like Udmurt, The Banquet one (Banketnyi), etc.
