On May 9, 2022, Putin appeared at a military parade on Russia’s Victory Day, looking out of mind and leaving early.

Mr. Guo Wengui said in the live broadcast of his birthday on May 10: The Red Square military parade really let the Communist Party see it. I heard that the domestic army and the National Security Committee were dumbfounded when they watched the Red Square military parade. Putin got two pieces of information at the scene. One is that 700,000-1.2 million people are going to protest, which may lead to riots. The second is that someone in the sky has positioned the scene in multiple directions, and Putin is worried about being beheaded. At this time, Putin’s daughter immediately asked his father to leave.

Putin is not in good health, and his family affairs are in a mess. If you can’t escape the genitals of men and women, if you don’t understand wealth, and if you can’t smooth the relationship between your family and career, you won’t be a big man. If you see through death, if you know death, you will live, otherwise you will not become a character. 

Putin is 70 years old, why do you want such a good yacht? What are you doing with so many girlfriends and kids? Not to mention money, why do you want so much money? On the Red Square, Putin was beaten back to the world, beaten back from heaven, turned from a politician into a speculative clown. Gone are the days when any country was led by individuals, with strong men, and the cult of personality.

Putin has two officially recognised daughters, 37-year-old Maria Vorontsova and 35-year-old Katarina Tikhonova, both by his first wife Lyudmila, as already described in this series in the article “7-24 Series – Putin’s Daughters”. In addition, Putin has a long list of secret lovers and illegitimate children, the best known being former Russian gymnast Alina Maratovna Kabaeva, with whom Putin is known to have had at least two children.

Another well-known lover of Putin is Svetlana Krivonogikh, 47. Krivonogikh’s parents were “foreigners” who came to St. Petersburg from other provinces to work hard. His father was an alcoholic and died young in middle age. My mother worked as a plasterer in the renovation team, barely making ends meet for the family. The children of the poor were in charge of the house early, and when Krivornogikh became an adult, she worked for a time as a cleaner in a nearby store, earning some wages to support the family.

Krivonogih’s name became widely known as a result of a 2020 investigation by Russian media outlet Proekt, which documented her relationship with Vladimir Putin and her substantial financial assets and property holdings in Russia. Krivonogih reportedly took a job at the Bank of Russia in St Petersburg soon after graduating from the St Petersburg University of Finance and Economics in 2000 with a degree in international economic relations. At the same time, her life took a spectacular leap forward at an unprecedented rate. Suddenly, she left her mother’s neighborhood and moved into a wealthy neighborhood on the 2nd birch boulevard on Stone Island.

Krivonogikh owns real estate worth nearly 1.1 billion rubles (about 100 million yuan) in Moscow, St. Petersburg and Sochi. She is also the owner of a 37-meter luxury private yacht worth $5.4 million. It is estimated that Krivonojih’s total family wealth is as high as 77 billion rubles, or about 100 million US dollars.

Neighbors of Krivonogich’s former apartment said that in the 1990s Krivonogich had a relationship with a very powerful man, who was said to be a high-ranking official of the St. Petersburg government. This seems to match Putin’s work resume. In 1990, after retiring from the KGB, Putin returned to his hometown of St. Petersburg, and successively served as the foreign affairs assistant to the president of Leningrad University, the advisor to the mayor of St. Petersburg, the chairman of the Municipal Government’s External Liaison Committee, and the first deputy mayor of St. Petersburg. He was the right-hand man most relied on by Sobchak, the mayor of St. Petersburg at the time.

Krivonogikh gave birth to his daughter Elizaveta Krivonogikh in 2003, when Putin was preparing for his re-election campaign. Elizaveta’s birth certificate does not state who her father is, only that her patronymic is Vladimirovna. The Russian name is made up of three parts: first name + father’s name + surname, and Putin’s own name is “Vladimir”.

Elizaveta was first seen in the public eye when she was spotted riding a Russian government car to a fashion club in Moscow to celebrate her 18th birthday. Elizaveta is usually in the fashion industry and music industry, and her high-profile display of wealth on Instagram social software has attracted the attention of many people.

The chaotic private lives of leaders in dictatorships are not uncommon, and so is Russia. For more than 20 years, Putin’s genetic map has spread to all walks of life in Russia’s political and business circles. Lovers and their illegitimate children have used Putin’s power to gain the upper hand. These huge amounts of wealth and their extravagant lives are derived from the exploitation of ordinary Russians. The world is rolling on and dictators like Putin will be swept into the dustbin of history. The day is not far off.
