Here in America we’ve noticed a trend from the Obama’s trying very hard to shield their daughters from the public spotlight. Although their sentiment is admirable, it seems that they have nothing on Russian President Vladmir Putin as he’s made an utter art of hiding his daughters – Mariya and Yekaterina.
As reported by Vocativ:
Not much is known about Putin’s two daughters, apart from the fact that Maria was born in 1985 in Leningrad (now St. Petersburg) and Yekaterina in 1986 in Dresden, East Germany, while Putin was stationed there during his time in the KGB. The only official photographs of them are black-and-white images from their early childhood.
Only a few pictures exist around the web of the two, and we here at Mr. Conservative decided to go out and track a few down for you. Despite many people now fully knowing that Putin even had offspring to begin with, the photos – albeit few and far between – seem to show a distinct timeline into the women they are today.
Of course, in an attempt to show what a good father he was, and still is, just a few photos of he and his daughters were released and can be seen below
