Vladimir Putin's Eldest Daughter's Marriage Is Crumbling Amid Russian Invasion Over Ukraine
Vladimir Putin's eldest daughter is reportedly dealing with some personal issues as her father continues his invasion of Ukraine.
According to a new report, Dr. Maria Vorontsova — the Russian president's 36-year-old daughter — is facing the end of her marriage to Dutch businessman and husband Jorrit Faassen.
As reported by Herald Sun, Maria and her husband are believed to have called things off on their marriage.

The pair share children together, making Putin a grandfather, although it is unclear how many children they have or what their names are.
Putin has also been vague about his family life over the years, as he previously confirmed that Maria and her sister, Katerina Tikonova, were his children, although he keeps most details private.
"I have a private life in which I do not permit interference. It must be respected," he previously stated, as the outlet reported. "Those who with their snotty noses and erotic fantasies prowl into others' lives."
While his eldest daughter's collapsing marriage is believed to have been going downhill before the Russian attack on Ukraine, Putin's invasion has still had monumental effects on Maria when it comes to her career, according to the publication.
Maria — who is an expert in rare genetic diseases in children —previously had a dream of opening "a money-spinning elite medical centre" which has been crushed by the situation in Russia and Ukraine.
Exiled Russian investigative journalist Sergey Kanev told the outlet Putin "did a rotten job for his elder daughter," by causing Western countries to impose paralyzing sanctions on Russia as a result of the war.
"She has a big share in the mega-project for the construction of a super modern medical center near St. Petersburg," Kanev stated. "The plans were to attract patients from Europe and rich sheiks from the Person Gulf countries," but "after the attack on Ukraine, what kind of Europeans and sheiks will come?"

As we know, Putin launched the large-scale invasion on Ukraine in February, deploying devastating attacks on major Ukrainian cities including Kyiv.
Other countries, including the U.S. have since imposed numerous sanctions in the hopes of putting a stop to the invasion, causing a major strain on Russia's economy.
