The war led by Vladimir Putin in Ukraine has repercussions on his alleged companion… Hidden for months, Alina Kabaeva learned bad news this Friday, May 13. The United Kingdom has indeed decided on a new wave of sanctions against the Russian president, or rather his relatives. Accused by London of financing Vladimir Putin’s “lavish” lifestyle, several members of his entourage have been pinned. In all, there are twelve of them, including financiers but also his ex-wife, Lyudmila Ocheretnaya and therefore Alina Kabaeva, who “according to rumors is Putin’s current companion”, as we can read in a press release, notably unveiled by the Evening Standard.
“We are exposing and targeting the occult network that supports Putin’s luxurious lifestyle and tightening the noose on his bodyguard,” British Foreign Secretary Liz Truss said in the statement. “We will continue to apply sanctions on all who aid and abet Putin’s aggression until Ukraine wins.” In a statement, British diplomacy questioned the official heritage of Vladimir Putin, who would only own an apartment in Saint Petersburg, two cars from the Soviet era of the 1950s, a trailer and trucks. a small garage. “In reality, Putin relies on his network, family, childhood friends, and a select elite who have benefited from his power and in turn support his lifestyle,” the ministry said.
Alina Kabaeva: the last appearance of Vladimir Putin’s companion
Since the start of the war in Ukraine at the end of February, Alina Kabaeva has lived in hiding. Some say she took refuge in Switzerland, others in Siberia. But on April 22, she was spotted in Russia during a junior rhythmic gymnastics rehearsal in Moscow. Again, she was seen sporting a wedding band… But since rumors of a romance between the two emerged, it was never confirmed. And especially not by the Russian president. “I never discuss issues related to my family. They are not involved in business or politics. This question is essential, it avoids possible political pressure”, launched Vladimir Putin about his private life.
