Recep Tayyip Erdogan was supposed to be in Akkuyu today, in the Mediterranean, inaugurating the first Turkish nuclear reactor together with Vladimir Putin. Although the presence of the Russian president was never confirmed, nobody could imagine that the Turkish president would miss a moment that he had been cherishing for almost fifteen years. Finally, both have intervened by videoconference and in the case of Erdogan, looking very bad, but dispelling the worst rumors about his health.
These began to accumulate on Tuesday night, when Erdogan had a severe illness on air, within ten minutes of an interview by two related television channels. The director concealed the worst moment, which led to the interruption of the broadcast, showing only one of the interviewers while he embarked on an endless question that went unanswered, with concern written on his face.
