Her second husband is younger than Lyudmila but he is able to provide the most luxury life conditions for the wife on French villa called Anglet.

Putin’s divorce was quiet and smart, Lyudmila was seen less and less in public, so, the Russian press suggested the powerful ex-spouse had packed her off to a monastery.
