The United Kingdom imposed sanctions on those close to President Vladimir Putin. Among them are his ex-wife Lyudmila Ocheretnaya, Putin’s cousins and possible current girlfriend of the president, Alina Kabaeva.
We expose the shady web around Putin and target the luxurious lifestyle he leads. “Our focus is on Putin’s inner circle,” Secretary of State Liz Truss said. “We will continue the sanctions until the victory of Ukraine.”
According to official information, Putin receives a modest salary, but he is suspected of having billions of euros. The British say that much of Putin’s wealth is in the hands of relatives and other relatives, who have been given high positions and in return must remain loyal to the president.
The ministry said there are good reasons to believe that Lyudmila Ocheretnaya has ties to people involved in destabilizing Ukraine or threatening Ukraine’s territorial integrity, sovereignty or independence.
Alina Kabaeva, chair of the supervisory board of the state National Media Group (NMG), has been accused of direct involvement in the destabilization of Ukraine.
Also new on the list are cousins of Roman and Igor Putin and Mikhail Shelomov, Putin’s cousin who, according to British sources, owns shares in the Bank of Russia, which in turn is a major shareholder in NMG.
