Vladimir Putin’s Olympic gold-winning gymnast mistress is allegedly hiding with their four young children in a private chalet in Switzerland.
Alina Kabaeva, 38, who was once called ‘Russia’s most flexible woman’, supposedly has four children with the 69-year-old Russian tyrant.
It is thought Putin has two sons and two seven-year-old twin daughters with the decorated gymnast.

The children allegedly all have Swiss passports.
‘While Putin carries out his assault on the Ukraine, attacking innocent citizens and causing a refugee crisis, his family is holed up in a very private and very secure chalet somewhere in Switzerland,’ a source told Page Six.
It came as Russia’s war with Ukraine entered its tenth day.
Thousands have allegedly been killed and more than a million people have been made to flee as refugees so far because of Putin’s invasion of Ukraine.
Kabaeva once posed almost nude for Maxim and was described as ‘full of sex’ by a photographer.
Many Russians saw Alina (pictured) as the reason for the breakup of Putin’s marriage to ex-first lady Lyudmila, 62, mother of his two adult daughters

There have been many reports of her wearing a wedding ring, but no records of a marriage.
She is reported to have a fleet of Maybach limousines at her disposal, and has been surrounded by a squad of machine-gun toting security guards on visits to a Moscow cafe.
Kabaeva is one of the most decorated gymnasts in rhythmic gymnastic history, with 2 Olympic medals, 14 World Championship medals, and 25 European Championship medals.

Many Russians saw her as the reason for the breakup of Putin’s marriage to ex-first lady Lyudmila, 62, mother of his two adult daughters.
The dictator of neighbouring Belarus, Alexander Lukashenko hinted that Putin’s divorce decision came about because Kabaeva ‘put pressure on the president’.
Once regarded as Russia’s most eligible woman, the only other suitor Kabaeva has been linked to by the media was a married Georgian policeman.
This relationship petered out in 2005 amid complaints of tabloid intrusion into the sportswoman’s life.
