    Putin to re-marry...??

    Putin 'leaves wife to marry woman half his age'

    Friday Apr 18 06:00 AEST
    By ninemsn staff


    Russian president Vladimir Putin has left his 50-year-old wife and is set to marry a former gymnast half his age, according to media reports.

    Moscow paper the Moskovski Korrespondent reports that Putin, 56, and Alina Kabaeva, 24, will marry in June after the former KGB spy steps down from his role as Russian president.

    Putin is believed to have left wife Ludmilla, with whom he is rarely photographed, two months ago.

    Kabaeva is a former rhythmic gymnast who competed at the Olympic Games at Sydney in 2000 and won a gold medal in the individual all-around at the 2004 Athens Games.

    She has also worked as a model and actress before becoming a member of parliament.

    British newspaper Daily Mail claims news of the pair's upcoming ceremony first appeared in a Moscow newspaper with claims that a party planner from St Petersburg was already organising the wedding reception for Putin and his reported bride-to-be.

    The couple was also spotted kissing in a Moscow restaurant, according to reports.

    Putin has taken credit for re-building Russia after post-communist disorder. He enjoys high approval ratings in his own country, despite many western observers often criticising his rule as undemocratic.

    Photos of Kabaeva posing in fur for sexy photos can be viewed in the Daily Mail website.

    The Kremlin has made no comment on the reports of the supposedly impending marriage.

    The Daily Mail doesn't usually let the facts get in the way of a story, so I'd be sceptical.

    Don't care, and anyway it is private life, for VP like for everybody. Really, the british media have nothing else to write about? Maybe about the death of Diana?

    I would not be so sure it is a wind-up

    our national news keep running tv reports and saying that on the 15th of next month Putin might get married

    DailyMail is not the only paper reporting that

    What shocks me it is how Russians got to know this from a twat like SalTheReturn?

    disappointed really.

    Sorry, it's in Spanish. Alina Kabaeva is going to suit the newspaper for the publication.

    No shock, Sal. Unlike the Western media, just a few Russians read, let alone take seriously, what is written in such yellow press like this online MK.

    I personally read it for the first time in my life. I don't think I will do it again.

    people discuss the marriage of the President, the age, the sport, but noone seems to worry that she has become a member of parliament?! after being a model and a gymnast? What's her agenda

    "Agenda"... People voted for her not needing any agenda... Good for her!
    Who else can win elections without any agenda?

    Does anybody know if the rumours are true, or just stories ?
    Obviously it looks as not just a journalist story. When some info goes through the government information channels (like 1TV fe) with Putin in title role it is definitely done with the blessing of President Administration and his PR section.
    Have you seen any more press stories promoted at this informational level about Putin during recent 8 years?(for those who've been here). Do you really sure that any journalist or any edition are so brave and brainless to rise their rating on the basis of Putin's name speculation? That's really doubtful. And no one from government controlled media will ever promote this information further without superior admission. Putin is a serious man and doesn't like such jokes


    So, two versions - either it is a development of new Putin's image - more vivid and attractive- or he is going in fact to make some changes at his life but step by step. The first version seems to be more real.But..

    time will show. I'm just sure that if the rumor came not from president administration, Putin's reaction today would be different
