Conspiracy theorists claim the Russian president has collected a body of evidence which proves the US government and intelligence services were involved in plotting the atrocity.
Terrorist group al-Qaida were officially held responsible for crashing a plane into the World Trade Center’s Twin Towers, killing nearly 3,000 people and injuring more than 6,000 others.
But truth seekers believe then president George Bush’s administration was behind the horrific attack, claiming Osama Bin Laden’s henchmen were just pawns.
Despite staunch claims the towers were brought down by a “controlled explosion”, there is no concrete evidence to suggest the US government had any involvement.
However, Russian political website Pravda reported Putin is on the verge of releasing “authoritative evidence” which proves “beyond any doubt” that the White House was directly involved.
The report was published on 7 February 2015 by the Russian political newspaper, which sold millions of copies a day at the height of the Soviet Union.
The article reads: “Putin is going to hit once, but he’s going to hit hard.
“Russia is preparing the release of evidence of the involvement of the US government and intelligence services in the September 11 attacks. The list of evidence includes satellite images.
“Published material can prove the US government complicity in the 9/11 attacks and the successful manipulation of public opinion.
“The attack was planned by the US government, but exercised using her proxy, so that an attack on America and the people of the United States looked like an act of aggression by international terrorist organisations.”
The article goes on to claim Putin’s alleged motive is to “expose the US government’s secret terrorist policies”.
US analysts apparently told Pravda that the disclosure would bring about mass protests and ultimately lead to an uprising.
Skeptics have raised concerns over the validity of the report as Pravda is associated with the Communist Party of the Russian Federation.
According to reports, Putin has said on record that he thinks an inside jobs would have been impossible.
Some believe the claims are merely rumour, while others are convinced Russia has been saving the evidence as political ammunition.
The US and Russia are currently attempting to hammer out a peace deal in Syria, where they hope to agree on closer military cooperation to smash ISIS.
However, last month Putin unveiled plans to stash his nukes at a new military outpost in eastern Russia – just 50 miles from the US border – sparking new Cold War fears.
Leaking hard evidence of US involvement in the 9/11 attack would be a huge victory for the Russian hardman.
Eyewitness accounts describing the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks supports the theory explosives were planted inside the towers.
Cameraman Kurt Sonnenfeld, who was on Ground Zero during the attack, is convinced the US not only knew disaster was imminent – but were actually involved in the terror plot.
