'Violating neutrality'

The petition tells the Swiss: 'For the first time in modern history, your country has violated its neutrality, which it did not even do vis-à-vis Nazi Germany in the 20th century, and joined the sanctions against Putin and his surroundings. And now you are allowing his favourite mistress and her children to hide within the borders of your state.'

Where does Putin’s daughter live?

Maria, her husband and child lived in the Netherlands until controversy caused her to leave. According to the New York Post, the couple became very uncomfortable in The Netherlands after flight MH17 was shot out of the sky over Ukraine in 2014. According to international reconstructions of the attack, it was Maria's father who "provided the missile that shot 193 of their countrymen out of the sky over Ukraine," the Post states.

Her mother never confirmed the claims

Luiza’s mother, Svetlana Krivonogikh, has never claimed that Putin was the father of her daughter, despite the many rumours. Neither has Putin. However, it is interesting to note that Krivonogikh worked as a cleaning lady and then became a multi-millionaire and one of the country’s wealthiest women within a remarkably short period of time, per the Daily Mail.

Trolled in wake of the invasion

Luiza had a fantastic Instagram following (84,000 followers), mainly due to to the fame of her ‘secret’ father and her stashes of cash. But that all changed, according to Metro, when the Russian invasion of Ukraine started. She has now shut down her account after being heavily trolled in the wake of the war.
