(TheRedWire.com) – In Ukraine, millions of people are still trying to flee as Russia violently invades the former Soviet bloc country. US Secretary of State Antony Blinken says the United States has received credible reports Russian soldiers attacked civilians, and some world leaders accuse Russia of war crimes. As the news emerges about what’s happening inside Ukraine, Russian President Vladimir Putin is ensuring that his mistress and children are safe and out of harm’s way.
Allegedly, Alina Kabaeva is hiding in a very private, secure chalet in Switzerland with the four young children she shares with Putin. Over the years, Putin has attempted to keep his personal life secret. He regularly informs the media his private life is off-limits. Still, sources tell journalists Putin and Kabaeva share seven-year-old twin daughters and two sons.

Kabaeva is a highly celebrated and decorated gymnast. She earned 2 Olympic medals, 14 World Gymnast medals, and 21 European championships. The media hailed her as Russia’s most flexible woman at one time. Kabaeva eventually became a pro-Kremlin member of parliament, where she served for eight years. In 2014, the Kremlin appointed her to run the state-owned National Media Group, where the government handsomely paid her $10 million per year.
Despite Kabaeva’s high government profile, the public rarely sees her.
