Putin, who is divorced, has denied any relationship with her.
As per the BBC report, Kabaeva moved into politics, holding a seat in Russia’s lower house of parliament from 2007-2014 with the ruling United Russia party.

In 2014 she became chair of the National Media Group, which has large stakes in almost all major Russian state media outlets.

Kabaeva has made public statements in support of the Russian military since the start of the war in Ukraine, most recently calling on Russian citizens to rally behind the war effort.
