Putins secret family spotted in public for the first time





Putins secret family spotted in public for the first time Putins secret family spotted in public for the first time

Vladimir Putin’s not-so-secret family has apparently gone public.

Alina Kabaeva, a former Olympic gymnast, took her two boys to an ice-skating show in Moscow, where they were photographed for the first time.

The Russian strongman has never acknowledged his relationship with Kabaeva, or her boys, although I reported on their births in December 2009 and January 2013. (She also reportedly has an infant daughter.)

When Kabaeva appeared on the cover of Vogue Russia in 2011, she said her first-born boy was her nephew. “Everyone, of course, thinks he is my son,” she laughed.

A source told me, “Alina’s sister is listed as their mother on their birth certificates.”

Putin, an ex-KGB agent, is super-secretive about his adult daughters from his marriage to former Aeroflot flight attendant Lyudmila Shkrebneva.
