Russian Olympic gymnast, Alina Kabaeva widely believed to be the mistress of Russian President Vladimir Putin has praised Vladimir Putin’s war in Ukraine comparing it to Russia’s victory over Nazis in World War II.
Alina Kabaeva, 38, who was believed to be hiding in Switzerland, stepped out to lead her annual ‘Alina Festival’ at the Russian capital’s VTB Arena on Saturday, April 23, a rare public appearance for the former gymnast.
Western intelligence agencies believes she is the mother of four of his children who he has never officially recognized.
She appeared onstage alongside hundreds of young children at the event which featured a military choir and the infamous Russian ‘Z’ symbol which has become known for the war in Ukraine.
During the festival, the Soviet Union’s most patriotic songs were played in support of Putin’s ‘special military operation’ in Ukraine.
The full event will be broadcast on May 8, the eve of a Red Square military parade commemorating ‘Victory Day’, the end of the Second World War, according to reports .
Wearing a patriotic St George’s ribbon on her chest, Kabaeva delivered a rousing speech linking victory over Nazism in the Second World War to the war in Ukraine.
‘This theme, you see, this story, doesn’t only go into the past. It stays with us,’ she said.
‘This celebration is not just for the whole country, this is a holiday for every family.
‘Every family has a war story, and we mustn’t ever forget it, but pass it on from generation to generation.’
Kabaeva was supposed to be sanctioned by the US Treasury Department in the wake of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in February, but officials in Washington believed placing sanctions on her could escalate tensions between Russia and the West as Putin could feel he is being targeted personally.
Skitmakers, comedians should collaborate not compete – Bovi
Factual Pursuit of Truth for Progress
Popular comedian, Bovi Ugboma has stated that there should be no competition amongst skit makers and stand up comedians.
In an interview with Sunday Scoop, he said the two professions are similar yet different so they should collaborate instead of seeing themselves as competitors.
When asked if the rise of online skit makers have affected stand up comedians, he said, “Why should it affect them? They are two different crafts. We should learn to be more collaborative instead of competitive.
“Anytime I get that question, I get worried because what they do is online, and there is a market for it. What we do is offline and there is a market for it as well.
“They have a different genre, so we should encourage them and the fact that they can make money out of it. The fact that it is now a booming business is a plus to the entertainment industry.”
Bovi talked about what makes his crafts unique. He said, “I just do me and I make sure I always challenge and reinvent myself. I also constantly evolve so people would not get bored.
“If one does not reinvent oneself, people will find one predictable.”
