The Kremlin has confirmed that the divorce of Russian President Vladimir Putin from his wife of 30 years, Lyudmila, has been finalised.

The country's best-known couple, who have two daughters in their late 20s, went on TV in June to announce they were breaking up.

Mr Putin, 61, was still officially listed as "married" only last week.

I understand he was on pins and needles, like Ted Kennedy waiting for his annulment.

Ah, the "Savior of the Christian West" demonstrating those solid family values of throwing over his loyal wife for a woman young enough to be his daughter.

A towering champion of Orthodoxy.

I didn’t know he was getting a divorce. Does his ex-wife get some of those “Billions” he has?

Things are really looking up for this fellow. Just goes to show that life is all about timing and choices... and the timing of the BAD CHOICES of our electorate in picking an unvetted, untested, part-time community organizer, undocumented Halfrican leftist for it's CIC (TWICE) is certainly helping Pooty Poot out big time.

Vladimir... you deserve the Orson Welles clapping gif.

Way to be THE MAN.

You know she knows the truth about the past — imagine if she went ballistic and unloaded what she knows. After all that has occurred.

The Democrats will be disowning her like yesterday’s news.

Still an attractive 30 year old woman, (and heavier) today...posting a photo of her at 19 tumbling on a gym mat doesn't exactly tell the story.

If he loses her and he’s tripped the wire several times, get ready for an avalanche.

She put him in his place at the Mandela funeral.

Big time.

Showed she was a thin-skinned ‘true believer’ and he’s there for another photo op.

Putin’s been seeing her since she “retired” from Gymnastics competition ....about 20 yrs old then. I rather think he’s molded her to what he wants.

She’s the daughter of Tatar (Muslim) father and Russian mother, was born in Tashkent, Uzbek SSR, in the Soviet Union.

Looks like the Muslim association with her would be good for Putin since his population has many muslims...it would also make him favorable to the Arab nations....even more than he is now.

I anticipate an announcement ahead....apparently she has two children by Putin...but then again she may be kept in the background.

However, unlike his former wife, this gal loves the limelight. So he may put her front and center.
