The Vladimir Putin and Wife, Russia’s First Couple has recently Announced their Divorce

Russian President Vladimir Putin and his wife Lyudmila on Thursday, announced their divorce after many decades of marriage, in a shocking revelation that ended years of speculation about their union.

The pair, who has two daughters in their late 20s, made the announcement side-by-side in a joint interview with state television after watching a ballet performance inside the Kremlin. Persistent rumours have swirled for years around Putin’s marriage and even alleged mistresses but until now there has been a total taboo over discussing his private life in mainstream Russian media.

Putin said in an interview with Rossia-24 television,that it was a joint decision between him and his wife . He continued to say that “We are always going to be very close to each other. I am sure, forever.” “Our marriage is over, really because of the fact that we practically never see each other,” added Lyudmila, who has been almost invisible in public in recent years.
