In 2014 Vladimir Putin divorced his wife Lyudmila Putin after 31 years of marriage. For many years, the head of the Kremlin no longer appeared in public with the mother of his children. It must be said that the President of Russia already had a secret relationship with Alina Kabaeva, a well-known gymnastics champion in the country. But an article from the English tabloid The Sun published on Wednesday October 7, 2020 evoked a possible disappearance of the former high-level sportswoman. The latter had not, in fact, been seen since 2018, since a rumor said she was pregnant. If it was then said that she would have given birth to twins in the spring of 2019, the mistress of Vladimir Putin was no longer seen in public thereafter. “Alina has two young boys and twin girls with Putin who were born in Switzerland. That’s why the kids all have Swiss passports, and I imagine she does too” explained a source close to the family.
Having become a member of the Duma, the Russian National Assembly, in 2014, the young woman was then warned by those around her about her supposed relationship with Vladimir Putin. Among them, her trainer, Irina Viner, who laments that she fell in love with “someone who is not for her“, she judges, according to The Parisian. “I introduce her to other people but she doesn’t want to hear anything“, added the coach of the former Russian gymnast.
After months without showing up, Alina Kabaeva has however made a surprise return on August 10, 2021. The former top athlete reappeared on television on the sidelines of the Tokyo Olympics. And the young woman wore a mysterious ring on her right hand which strongly resembled a wedding ring, as the Mirror then reported. The lifestyle of Vladimir Putin’s companion has often been talked about. According to The Sun, she would have at her disposal several Maybac limousines and would be protected by a full-scale armed guard, in each of her trips. “She has a big influence on him“, explained Valery Solovei, a political analyst.
