About Lyudmila Aleksandrovna Ocheretnaya

Lyudmila Alexandrovna Ocheretnaya married Vladimir Putin in 1983 and was the first Lady of Russia through her ex-husband's entire first term in office as the President of Russia from 2000-2008.

She was also at his side when he served briefly as Russia's Prime Minister from 1999-2000. Lyudmila Aleksandrovna is said to be married to her long-time friend, businessman Artur Ocheretny.

Although little is known about Lyudmila and her family, the Kremlin did release a statement on the amicable divorce between herself and the then-newly-elected president. Within the first year of Vladimir Putin's second election as President of Russia, Lyudmila Alexandrova was quoted as saying that the marriage had broken down because she hardly ever saw her then-husband. Although she has not confirmed this publicly, she has officially changed her last name.

Even though Lyudmila maintained a relatively low profile as the Second and even the First Lady of Russia, she's still recognizable worldwide.

Little was known about Lyudmila's income and spending habits when she was known as Lyudmila Putina and married the president of Russia, Vladimir Putin. However, her activities after the divorce have shed light on the former First Lady's net worth.

Who is Lyudmila Aleksandrovna Ocheretnaya’s partner?

While working as a flight attendant, Lyudmila Aleksandrovna Ocheretnaya ( Lyudmila Shkrebneva at the time) was introduced to Vladimir Putin, a Komitet Gosudarstvennoy Bezopasnosti (KGB) operative at the time.

They married in 1983, and Lyudmila Putina returned to Leningrad State University, where she taught German and philology while supporting her husband's political ambitions and raising two daughters, Mariya and Yekaterina.
