New husband and isolation from the media: how Putin's ex-wife lives and breathes now
Now the whole world is talking about Russian President Vladimir Putin and the war he started in Ukraine. Many facts from his personal life are revealed. Not bypassed the life of his ex-wife Lyudmila Putina, who knew everything about the president. How the former first lady of Russia lives and breathes now, the publication found out Clutch.
In 2013, the couple divorced, allegedly because Lyudmila rarely saw her husband and did not want publicity.
And although little is known about Putin's personal life, from time to time information appears in the media about his mistresses, among whom the Olympic champion Alina Kabaeva and illegitimate children living in Switzerland occupy a “place of honor”.
But the only wife of the President of Russia, with whom he had been married for 30 years, was Lyudmila Putina.
When exactly the marriage began to burst at the seams, it is not known exactly. Probably, the spouses' problems began back in 2001, when Putin met Kabaeva.
Since 2006, rumors about their romance followed, and in 2015, Swiss journalists reported that the gymnast gave birth to a child from Putin in the private clinic Clinica Sant'anna.
What is known about Lyudmila Putina
The future first lady was born on January 6, 1958 in Kaliningrad, her father was a factory worker, and her mother was a cashier. Since childhood, Lyudmila dreamed of becoming an actress and even attended a drama club.
In her youth, she did not work in the most prestigious professions: a postman, a turner, a nurse, the head of a drama club, and even a flight attendant for Kaliningrad Airlines. In 1986 she graduated from Leningrad State University with a degree in philology and novelist. In 1990-1994 she worked as a teacher of German at her own university.
In the early 1990s, at a concert by Arkady Raikin, Lyudmila met Vladimir Putin. It is worth noting that it was a blind date, which was organized by the woman's acquaintance. An affair began between the couple, while during the relationship Putin hid that he was a KGB spy.
In his book “Vladimir Putin. The road to power ”Lyudmila recalls that her admirer was far from ideal and could be late for a date for an hour or an hour and a half, and he was also distinguished by his temper and harshness of statements, writes Columnist.
In 1983, Vladimir and Lyudmila got married. In 1985, on April 28, the couple had a daughter, Maria, and in 1986 (August 31), Catherine. Both daughters, who were born in Germany, where their father then worked as a KGB spy, were named after grandmothers. The sisters graduated from a private gymnasium with in-depth study of the German language in St. Petersburg, and in 2000 they switched to home schooling. After graduating from high school, both entered St. Petersburg State University. Maria Putina graduated from the Faculty of Biology, and her younger sister became a specialist in the history and culture of the Far East, writes Фокус.
As Putin's career took off, his personal life became even more complicated. Lyudmila recalled: “The fact that Vladimir Vladimirovich tested me all our life together is absolutely certain. There was always a feeling that he seemed to be watching me all the time: what decision would I make now, right or not, whether I would pass this or that test. There is a well-known phrase: do not praise a woman so as not to spoil her. So Vladimir Vladimirovich always trained me, kept me in good shape, so to speak.
When Putin came to power, Lyudmila tried her best to avoid attention. The exceptions were the measures provided for by the protocol.
Publicly, she always supported her husband, although at the time when Putin was the head of the FSB, she said the following in an interview with journalists: “It's terrible. We can no longer communicate with each other. Terrible isolation. There will be no more opportunity to travel where we want, no more opportunity to say what we want. And I just started to live.
The relationship of the spouses was clearly imperfect. Lyudmila told how she hailed a taxi to get to the hospital during contractions, while Putin was on a business trip. The woman wanted to name her daughter Natasha, but the man sternly announced that the girl would be called Masha.
“I was in tears. But then I realized that there was no choice in this matter, and the daughter would be Masha, ”she said.
Putina also said that when Putin worked in the KGB, he raised his hand to her and he had extramarital affairs.
In 2013, the couple divorced.
“All my activities and work are connected with publicity, with absolute publicity. Some people like it, some don't, but there are people who are absolutely not compatible with it. Here Lyudmila Alexandrovna defended this watch. This is a common decision, ”Putin commented on the end of his 30-year marriage.

“It really was our common decision. Our marriage is over due to the fact that we hardly see each other. Vladimir Vladimirovich is completely immersed in work, our children have grown up, they each live their own lives. In general, it so happened that everyone has their own life, and I really don’t like publicity and flights are difficult for me, ”she explained.
Life after the Kremlin
It is worth noting that Lyudmila was not alone for long and less than 3 years later she married the head of the Center for the Development of Interpersonal Communications and the Literary Education Publishing House Arthur Ocheretny and changed her last name. The husband is 20 years younger than his wife.
Putin has several apartments in Moscow, St. Petersburg, Kaliningrad, luxury real estate in the Moscow region. In addition, she owns a villa in France.
The name of Putin's ex-wife (now Ocheretnaya) also appeared in stories about the lawsuit between Artur Ocheretny and his ex-wife regarding the issue of child custody. In particular, the lawyers of Ocheretny's ex-wife initiated a consideration of "an attempt by the other side to take advantage of high connections."
The media also declassified information that Lyudmila herself does not hesitate to use the "services" of her ex-husband. So, she pulled out from under arrest the property belonging to her company "InteriorService" having managed to avoid confiscation.
The first and at the moment the only case when the Ocheretny family could be photographed together occurred in 2017 at London Heathrow Airport. Now nothing is known about the life of Putin's ex-wife, she does not like to communicate with journalists and disclose the details of her personal life.
