Putin SHOCKED to find out gymnast lover Alina Kabaeva is PREGNANT again
The 69-year-old Russian president Vladimir Putin was 'shocked' to learn his gymnast lover is pregnant again, as claimed by insiders. He is said to have been in a 'secret' relationship with the Olympic gold medalist Alina Kabaeva, 38, for over a decade. The couple is surmised to already have at least two children together, although Putin has yet to publicly acknowledge them.
Russian news channel General SVR Telegram, allegedly run by a former Kremlin intelligence officer, was one of the first to claim that the ex-Olympian is pregnant again. It also claimed, "Putin found out his mistress is yet again pregnant — and by the looks of it this wasn't planned."
The news channel added, "We have already reported that yesterday, Russian President Vladimir Putin, according to eyewitnesses, looked depressed and somewhat aloof. This is understandable as yesterday Putin learned that his long-term cohabitant and mother of his children, Alina Kabaeva, was pregnant for another, or rather, apparently, an extraordinary time."
General SVR Telegram had previously made some bold statements regarding Putin's health that were being heavily rumored inside Russia at that point.
A source who was linked to the obstetrician during the birth of the couple's first child said that the child was born in secrecy in Switzerland in 2015, amidst high security. Four years later, in 2019, the couple birthed another son with the help of the same specialist. This time the obstetrician flew to Russia, as reported by Swiss broadsheet newspaper Sonntagszeitung.
During the first week of April 2022, a document revealed that the EU plans to impose sanctions on Kabaeva due to her role in the Kremlin propaganda. She is the latest addition to the list of targeted individuals in the sixth package of measures against Russia as a response to the Ukraine war. Last month, Kabaeva likened Putin's invasion to the Soviet victory over Nazism in the Second World War.
The proposal identifies Kabaeva as the chairwoman of the board of directors of the National Media Group, a holding company that owns significant shares in almost all major Russian state media that make up Putin's propaganda machine.
The document also stated that the gold medalist is 'closely associated with President Vladimir Putin.' Moreover, as reported by The Wall Street Journal, Kabaeva and her family have amassed a fortune owing to her personal connection with the Russian leader.
