Then in 2018, there were reports of twins between the athlete and Putin. Other media even talk about four children together: “Alina has two sons and two girls with Putin who was born in Switzerland,” one of the sources told Page Six. Children have Swiss passports.

Vladimir Putin is said to have an illegitimate daughter with a housekeeper

In addition, the Russian president is said to have an illegitimate daughter with his former housekeeper Svetlana Kryonogich. It came to light only by chance. Because it was not at all clear to them that the journalists were on the trail of a possible daughter of Putin.

Because they really wanted to answer a completely different question: how did the housekeeper Svetlana Kryonojic come to a fortune estimated at around 100 million euros? Life in the lap of luxury includes: luxury homes, restaurants and luxury apartments in the best neighborhoods. All this financed by a housekeeper’s salary?

It is said that Putin has an illegitimate daughter

In 2020, journalists came across a photo of a girl, Elizaveta Vladimirovna. Analysis of the facial recognition software, which examined the faces of Svetlana, Elizaveta and Vladimir, came to about 70 percent. In addition, Elizaveta bears the paternal name, which is a typical name for Russia, Vladimirovna, the female version of “Vladimir”. This may also be an indication that Putin is indeed her father.
