But she thought about it the Moscow Komsomol news channel to report the news. Immediately after, however, canceled. Putin and Kabaeva had been seen together several times and it was becoming increasingly difficult, despite attempts, to hide that association. Kabaeva was an independent woman. She was also a member of parliament. At the State Duma from 2007 to 2014, he represented the United Russia party. She and she is one of the highest paid Russian women of all time.

She today she is chairman of the board of directors of the National Media Group, a media group that controls various newspapers and television channels. But his life beyond the gymnastics podium, his previous political activity and today’s managerial activity is top secret. No confirmation, but not even denial, on the news leaked in recent days. She would be holed up in a chalet in Switzerland with the four children of the Russian leader, all with Swiss passports. And that is where these latest declarations would have started too.
