The UK has announced new sanctions on Russian President Vladimir Putin’s family and friends. In addition to many cousins, ex-wife Ludmila Okeletonaya (64) and girlfriend Alina Kabaeva (39) can no longer escape.
The list of people that Britain is sanctioning for so-called “indomitable loyalty” to Russian President Vladimir Putin is increasing. “There are already over 1,000,” the British government said. “We are now tightening his inner circle again and will continue to do so until Ukraine wins.”
Almost three months after the outbreak of the war in Ukraine, Ludmila Okeletonaya and Alina Kabaeva can no longer escape the dance. Okeletonaya has been married to Putin for 30 years, and the Kremlin has consistently denied these rumors, allegedly why Kabaeva broke down.
President Putin has not been in the limelight in his private life since he began his political career. Just as we know very little about his daughters Maria and Katerina, we speculate with whom he recently shared his life.
“There are no public figures”
Officially, Ludmila Okeletonaya was Putin’s only partner. The two met at a concert in the early 1980s. Okeletonaya studied German at Leningrad, which was also Putin’s home port at the time, and was a flight attendant at Aeroflot. Less than two years after getting married, her daughter Maria was born in April 1985, and Katerina continued in August 1986.
During the thirty years when Putin and Okeletonaya got married, she rarely appeared. “My wife is not a public figure,” Putin said in 2012. He asked the media to keep his family away from political coverage. More than a year later, they announced their separation. According to Okeletonaya, it was a joint decision: “Our marriage is over because of the fact that we can hardly see each other.”
Putin and Okeletonaya may have been divorced, but she remained one of his best friends. According to the UK, she has “privileged business relationships with Russian state-owned enterprises and significant private assets.” Why the British soon put her on her sanctions list.
So it happens together Alina Kabaeva† She officially attended the Putin Party’s Russian Parliament from 2007 to 2014 and is currently chairing the board of directors of the National Media Group (NMG), Russia’s largest private media company. Informally, she has been Putin’s mistress since 2008.
The two are said to have met for the first time in 2001, when Putin made her stand out for her athletic performance as a gymnast. She is a multiple European and World Champion of Gymnastics and won the gold medal at the 2004 Athens Olympics.
It has not been confirmed that Putin and Kabaeva are involved, but it is even believed that they have children. To be precise, anyone can guess. One source talks about four children, including twins, and another source mentions two sons. According to the latest rumors, she is now unintentionally pregnant again.
According to the same rumor, Kabaeva was staying with his children in a safe villa in Lugano, Switzerland. At the end of March, a petition was created calling for her to be expelled from Switzerland, signed by more than 60,000 people, but the Swiss government said there was no indication that she was staying in Switzerland. In April, she attended a children’s gymnastics event in Moscow.
The European Union and the United States would also have been toying with the idea of sanctioning Kabaeva for his connection with Putin. Britain isn’t just about Kabaeva, it also has grandmother Anna Zazepurina on the sanctions list. In addition to being her “grandma”, she is also a partner of Gennady Timchenko, an ally of oligarchs and Putin.
The question is whether it’s too Svetlana Crivonogif When Louisa Rozois It will be on the list. Formerly a cleaner, Krivonogif is one of Russia’s wealthiest women today, and she appeared in the Pandora Papers as the owner of a sea-view apartment in Monaco. She acquired an apartment with a price tag of € 3.4 million through an offshore company founded weeks after the birth of her daughter Luisa Rozois.
Therefore, Luisa is considered by many to be Putin’s illegal daughter.
