Putin avoided pregnant mistress after news he was going to be a dad

Russian president Vladimir Putin is said to have avoided his mistress after news of her pregnancy emerged last week, it has been claimed by a Russian source.

The Russian despot is said to have at least two children with Olympic gold medal gymnast Alina Kabaeva, 39, and reports indicate a third could be on the way.

Putin was said to have looked "depressed" when he heard the news, according to a Telegram channel run by a foreign Russian intelligence agent.

Kabaeva and Putin's ex-wife Lyudmila Ocheretnaya have both been targeted in an attempt to strip Putin of his wealth, with reports indicating he holds his cash with those nearest and dearest to him.

But the Russian president did not care for the sanctions, with the Telegram post claiming he responded "calmly" to the news.

A post on the General SVR Telegram reads: "He doesn't care about his ex-wife, he's been indifferent to her for a long time, and the president's relationship with Alina Kabaeva has recently been difficult to call perfect, and this is despite the recent news about Alina's pregnancy.

"Putin clearly did not prepare to become a father again and Kabaeva's unplanned pregnancy puzzled him more than pleased him."

The post continued: "After he found out that he would have another child, he practically did not communicate with Alina, avoiding meetings and spending time together, justifying the loss of interest in state affairs.

"On her thirty-ninth birthday on May 12, Kabaeva received formal congratulations and a gift from Putin only in the afternoon and this upset her very much, despite the fact that the president underwent a surgical procedure the next night and was not up to the celebration."

The unnamed source also claimed that Putin thought of his relatives as a "burden" that "cause him unnecessary troubles and inconvenience" the despot, The Mirror reported.
