Vladimir Putin's 'mistress' on cover of Russian Vogue
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/europe/russia/8202295/Vladimir-Putins-mistress-on-cover-of-Russian-Vogue.html ^

The January 2011 issue features former rhythmic Olympic gymnast Alina Kabayeva, 27, wearing a £21,000 gold Balmain dress with her hands on her hips.

Viktoria Davydova’s decision to give her such prominence in the magazine is one that is likely to irritate the strong man Russian prime minister who has scornfully denied a newspaper report that he has left his wife Ludmila, with whom he has two daughters, for Miss Kabayeva.

While there is no substantive evidence that Mr Putin, 58, is romantically linked to Miss Kabayeva, who also happens to be an MP for Mr Putin's ruling United Russia party, the alleged affair has long been the hottest gossip topic among Russia's elite.

The rumour first came to public prominence in 2008 when a Russian newspaper, owned by billionaire oligarch Alexander Lebedev, quoted a source as insisting the story was true.

Mr Lebedev shut the newspaper down soon afterwards claiming it had not been a commercial success though many suspected the real reason was to appease an angry Mr Putin.

The rumours later escalated when bloggers claimed Miss Kabayeva had subsequently given birth to Mr Putin's love child. Mr Putin has angrily claimed that there is "not one word of truth" in any of the allegations, while Miss Kabayeva's spokesperson has refused to discuss what she derided as "nonsense."

Ok I’ll be the first... Not Guilty. I’m not sure what the charge is but not guilty is the verdict.

” there is no substantive evidence that Mr Putin, 58, is romantically linked to Miss Kabayeva, “

But the Telegraph sure isn’t gonna let a little detail like that get in the way of a juicy headline, is it??

(Having said that - seeing her picture - if the rumor is indeed true, Mr. Putin just went up a notch in my estimation....)

Oh, bull. Putin is all about running about the country trying to prove how big his *censored* is. If he didn’t approve this article wouldn’t have happened.

Why would an old man be interested in such a girl?

Perhaps her morals are similarly (ahem) "flexible".
