Putin has 2 daughter he scarcely at any point discusses, and is reputed to have no less than 2 more. His reputed fancy woman has recently been banged with sanctions.

Putin had two little girls in his most memorable union with previous airline steward Lyudmila Shkrebneva, to whom he was hitched for a considerable length of time until their separation in 2013.

Their daughter's names are Maria and Katerina. Maria was born in Leningrad in 1985, and Katerina was born in Germany in 1986 when the family lived there during her father's time in the KGB.

The two young ladies are named after their grandmas. Maria's epithet is Masha and Katerina's moniker is Katya.

At the point when the family moved to Moscow in 1996, the young ladies went to a German-language school. The kids were apparently eliminated from school when Putin became  president.

Lyudmila said in an undated statement on Putin's administration site. "Also, he has consistently ruined them, while I was the person who needed to teach them."

But as Putin gathered political power, his children saw him less and less, according to one of his early biographers.

Putin's marriage may also have been loveless. Lyudmila "was not a happy woman" and Putin wouldn't "hold" her, his biographer said.

Maria concentrated on science in school and went to clinical school in Moscow, while Katerina studied Asian Studies in school. The two young ladies went to college under bogus characters.

Maria, presently 36, is a clinical scientist and lives in Moscow with her Dutch spouse, Jorrit Faassen.
