The rumours that Russian President Vladimir Putin use botox have been making rounds for quite sometimes. And with the Russian invasion of Ukraine, many jokes are being created around the rumour itself. However, even if the rumours are true, Putin might have to stop the treatments soon.
As per reports due to sanctions imposed by the West on Russia, Putin might not be able to use botox anymore. This is due to the announcements made by some pharmaceutical companies in the wake of economic punishment.
A report by Reuters said Eli Lilly and Co, Novartis and Abbvie Inc and other pharmaceutical companies said last week that they would continue to supply critical medicines for the treatment of cancer and diabetes, but will halt “non-essential” products that include botox.
