Russian President Vladimir Putin's eldest daughter Maria Vorontsova, also known as Maria, is suspected of being separated from her Dutch businessman husband, Jorrit Faassen.
Their split is said to have taken place before the 69-year-old started the war against Russia. Meanwhile, the war in Ukraine seems to have shattered Putin's eldest daughter's hopes of opening an elite medical center for foreigners in Russia.
Dr. Maria Vorontsova, 36, born when the Russian president was a KGB spy, is an expert on rare genetic diseases in children. Russian investigative journalist living outside Russia, Sergey Kanev, said the sanctions appear to have affected not only the girl's projects, but also her marriage.
He revealed that she had long been engaged in the mega-project to build a super modern medical center near St. Petersburg. The plans were to attract patients from Europe and wealthy sheikhs from the Persian Gulf countries. "And now, after the attack on Ukraine, what kind of Europeans and sheikhs will come?"
