Splitsville for the Putins

All you fellow geopolitical/Sovietology nuts will find this exchange fascinating.

Wtf! That man can wrestle tree roots out of the ground with his bear arms and he can't save his marriage?! What does that mean for Chechnya and South Ossetia?

No big surprise here, Putin's been a philanderer since he was posted in in the DDR while working for the KGB in the 80s. He's taken up with a conga line of lithe young things over the last decade. I'm sure his ex-wife is glad to be free of him so she can quietly slip out of view and (hopefully) to the West. Julia Ioffe did a pretty good/hilarious piece on the Putin marriage yesterday, its worth the read.
