It looks like Russia finally has modern leadership and all the trimmings...divorce included. Mr. and Mrs. Putin are now joining ranks with the rest of the Western world, a milestone in Russian history has been reached. No longer will post-Soviet spouses be forced to wait until their husbands keel over from liver failure (all that vodka).
As a woman and spectator, one who has seen the many photos of Mr. Putin shirtless I have to side with Mrs. Putin and what I can only image has been her long-suffering marriage. Yes, I know that it takes two to break a marriage but, one has to assume that while Putin may be the "Party" leader, he can't exactly be a party to live with.
I wish her well. As for him, let the chips fall where they may, both politically and otherwise.
One less bell to answer
One less egg to fry
One less man to pick up after...onward and upward Mrs. Putin!
