These images show Russian President Vladimir Putin’s opulent home, where he lives with his partner, Alina Kabaeva, and their children.
The photographs were obtained by the Daily Mail from Proekt, an independent Russian media site, and they provide the first peek inside Putin’s palace.
The estate was created shortly after Putin entered politics in 1996 and is located in Valdai, which is 250 miles from Moscow. Putin has been either Russia’s President or Prime Minister since 1999.
The Russian tsar planned for the residence to be built expressly to mimic the “golden house,” also known as St. Petersburg’s winter palace.
According to the Daily Mail, after officially divorcing his ex-wife, Lyudmila Ocheretnaya, Putin, 70, brought Kabaeva, 39, to his home.
Putin then began building a new home for his partner Kabaeva near the “golden mansion” in 2020.
According to the report, a boat dock near Kabaeva’s residence would be built in 2021. “From there, a boat can be used to cruise across a tiny canal to a large, classic palace park spread out over a 28-hectare (70-acre) property.
The property has a big spa complex with a solarium, a cryo chamber, a 25-meter swimming pool, a hammam, a sauna, a mud room, massage tubs, and cosmetology and dental sections.
A private armoured train to Putin’s lakeside retreat is also included. As a result, Proekt revealed, a secure station was established near his residence.
The railroad stations can be seen in Proekt’s satellite photographs of the house. Putin also has private train stations in the nearby Russian cities of Sochi and Novo-Ogaryovo for his mansions.
According to the story, many servants look after Kabaeva’s requirements while she is on the property.
Putin and Kabaeva may have multiple children together who are not publicly displayed. Their children are not identified due to their young ages.
