Ihe pressure is mounting on Alina Kabaeva, 38, the supposed partner of Vladimir Putin. While she would have holed up in Switzerland at the start of the Ukrainian conflict, a petition recently launched on Change.org calls for her departure from the Swiss Confederation as soon as possible. “Why does Switzerland host the accomplices of the Putin regime?, Can we read in the preamble. It’s time to kick him out of your country! We also ask you to verify the origin of the funds used for the purchase of real estate in Switzerland, used by this person. “And to conclude:” It is time to reunite Alina Eva Braun Kabaeva with her Führer”, not hesitating to compare the young Russian woman to the companion of Adolf Hitler in the 1930s.
Launched collectively by Russian, Belarusian and Ukrainian citizens, this very political petition is a real hit on the platform, already accumulating 60,000 signatures in a few days. But is Alina Kabaeva only still in Switzerland, especially in the vicinity of Lugano, as the British tabloid recently claimed? Mirror ? Faced with the measures taken recently against the oligarchs, she was very well able to migrate to more lenient skies or even to Russia, near the master of the Kremlin, escorted by his close guard – she is undoubtedly today one of the most most protected in the world and his life, like his movements, remains shrouded in deep mystery…
But Internet users are not giving up: another petition, less popular this one, demands that the former Russian athlete also return his Olympic medals. “This conspirator should not be rewarded, can we also read on the Change.org platform, which definitely combines attacks against Alina Kabaeva. We demand that she be stripped of all her medals” – a purely symbolic demand since Olympic titles are mainly taken away in cases of doping or cheating.
It must be said that, before sharing the life of Vladimir Putin, Alina Kabaeva was best known as a high-level gymnast, winning several titles at the European and World Championships in the early 2000s, and above all a bronze medal at the Olympic Games in Sydney in 2000 and a golden one in Athens four years later, which earned her the nickname “the most flexible woman in the world”.
Prowess noticed by Vladimir Putin, who will congratulate her in person… She will then begin a political career before today directing a consortium of media close to power, for an annual salary of 10 million dollars. Suffice to say that these spikes will have as much effect on her as mosquito bites on the skin of an alligator.
