We also look into their post separation relationships: Lyudmila as since remarried a Russian entrepreneur/oligarch 21 years her junior named Artur Ocheretny and Putin has had a series of relationships, the first with Svetlana Krivonogikh, a shareholder in a major Russian bank, who also owns the elite property and a St Petersburg erotic nightspot. They allegedly have a child together, 18 years old Luiza Rozova (Elizaveta Krivonogikh). He then met and allegedly secretly married gymnast Alina Maratovna Kabaeva (also named Kabayeva by some sources). They allegedly have for children together, who are now living in Switzerland with their mother. 2
All of this leads to our next episode about how friends and family of the Putins do not just jet set to ski resorts in the Swiss Alps, but also play crucial roles in overseeing the family wealth which is controlled by the state, and guarded by the FSB.
