According to The Project, the Russian president allegedly used a slush fund in Cyprus to purchase his lover’s real estate empire worth $120 million. The construction of Ms. Kabaeva’s residence started in 2020 and was finished in 2021. The palace, which is about 13,000 square feet, was constructed entirely out of wood in the design of a Russian dacha. Businessman Yuri Kovalchuk, a Russian tycoon also known as “Putin’s banker,” was in charge of the construction.

Independent claims that though Mr. Putin has never publicly recognised a relationship with Ms. Kabaeva, who has been dubbed “the uncrowned queen of Russia,” they have reportedly been dating since the early 2000s, including during that time when he was still married. The Olympic gold medalist is widely believed to be the mother of at least three of Putin’s young children.

Mr Putin has purchased a number of pricey properties for Ms. Kabaeva’s family members too, including her grandmother, Anna Zatsepilina, who, according to The Project, is the owner of property worth almost 10 million Pounds (Rs 99,18,39,600). This includes a three-storey manor house in a posh neighbourhood close to Moscow.
