NOVO-OGARYOVO, March 2 (Itar-Tass) —— Presidential candidate Vladimir Putin called on the media to leave his wife Lyudmila in peace as she is no public personality.
“The media are very merciless and not every person can cope with it,” he told foreign editors on Thursday who asked whether his wife was capable of fulfilling the duties of the first lady if he becomes president.
Lyudmila Putina has not been seen in public with her husband for long. “It is not easy for her as she is not a public personality,” Putin said.
“You can see that my family members do not engage either in politics or business and I would like you to leave them in peace as it is related to their wellbeing and security,” Putin said.
