Vladimir Putin’s New Year’s speech caused a lot of talk. During his speech to pronounce his wishes to his people, the President of Russia opened up many hypotheses. On Twitter, many observers suspected the Russian president of using actors during his New Year’s address, delivered from the headquarters of the southern military district of Rostov-on-Don, in the west of Russia, Saturday December 31. But in the middle of the group of soldiers arranged behind him, a blonde woman attracted even more attention.
According to a Belarusian journalist, this is not the first time that this woman has found herself alongside Vladimir Putin during his official trips. Other photos show her with the Russian president. After some research a little more in-depth, it would not finally be military. “She would therefore have played the role of a soldier, a sailor woman and a devoted Christian during several propaganda scenes filmed by the Kremlin,” said the same Belarusian journalist, named Tadeusz Gicza. So the question is: who is she really?

Vladimir Putin often uses extras for his official videos
The Switzerland Times newspaper decided to investigate. According to the Swiss media, this young blonde woman is actually close to Vladimir Putin, a member of the Duma, the Russian majority party, named Serguhina Larissa Borisovna. The latter appeared alongside Vladimir Putin for the first time in 2016 in a report on a fishing company. If rumors of manipulation by the Kremlin persist, it is because the President of Russia regularly resorts to showmanship during his public appearances. At the end of November 2022, Moscow was also accused of using actresses during a meeting of mothers of families of soldiers who died in combat.
