Russian President, Vladimir Putin is single again and loving every minute of it. The man and his wife of three decades Lyudmila Putin have decided that it lies in the best interests of both to part ways. “That means the divorce has taken place,” explained Putin flack Dmitry Peskov, giving some insight into the latest Kremlinology.
They appeared on television a year ago and announced that they were planning on a divorce. Both Vladimir Putin and Lyudmila Putin mentioned that they hardly got time to see each other due to Putin’s busy schedule. It was somewhat of a revelation seeing Lyudmila appear on screen since she is a very secretive and hermit-like person in real life.
Lyudmila Putin has mostly kept out of the limelight and allowed Putin to appear before the cameras. The couple has two adult daughters. However, both Vladimir and Lyudmila spoke of how the two were separating with an understanding that there would be no animosity between them. They would still remain close to each other.
There had been rumors as to Putin being a homosexual but they have petered out. But the hearsay regarding his affair with Olympic gymnast Alina Kabaeva may have some truth to it. The very sexy and good looking Alina was one of the six torchbearers at the Sochi Olympics.
That position which she was awarded was probably arranged for her on Putin’s orders. The Russian president has been furthermore caught engaged in poses of romantic togetherness with Alina. The rings found on both Alina and Putin’s hands are further proof (if any is needed) that they may have been secretly married. And there are even flying rumors as to Putin having had love children with Alina.
While Putin is above 60, Alina is less than half his age. That would make for an odd couple. Putin is a very physically fit person and a martial artist to boot. He is an eligible bachelor once again though at a late stage of his life. But as they say: men above forty tend to get naughty!
