"He gave me a day to get rid of those curtains." Tatiana Navka on fights with Putin’s spokesman Peskov
According to the figure skater, she and her husband only fight over trifles.
Domestic disputes are the only reason the Olympic figure skating champion Tatiana Navka and press secretary of the Russian president Dmitry Peskov may have an argument, Navka said on the TV show Sudba Cheloveka. Once, the couple had a fight over curtains Peskov didn’t like, but Navka decided to keep them anyway.
“He gave me a day to get rid of those curtains. I hung them back two years later, I got my own way,” Navka said.
The couple also disagreed about the interior decorations of the apartment. Now, the quarrels happen less often, Navka says, although Peskov comes home around midnight because his high office demands it.
The figure skater said she is "absolutely happy." She added that sport continues to be an important part of her life, but she has always put family first.
In September, it was reported that Navka got 18 million rubles ($270.000) from Russia’s budget for the production of her ice show Ruslan and Lyudmila. The show was sponsored by the Moscow Department of Labor and Social Security, Ministry of Education, Rosconcert, Sberbank, Transneft, FosAgro, Gazprombank, Channel One, Russian Railways and others.
Tatiana Navka comes seventh on Forbes’ list of the richest wives of Russian officials and deputies. She made more than 200 million rubles ($3.000.000) in 2017, which is ten times her husband’s income for the year.
Deposit Insurance Agency and ‘criminal duo’ of its First Deputy General Director Miroshnikov and colonel–billionaire Cherkalin
Valery Miroshnikov, First Deputy General Director of the Deposit Insurance Agency (DIA), has fled Russia and intends to resign. Experts explain his escape by the arrest of FSB colonel Kirill Cherkalin charged with swindling amounting to 12 billion rubles ($191.4 million); Miroshnikov and Cherkalin had close ties. In addition, the high-ranked insurer was a friend of fugitive FSB general Viktor Voronin – who had assisted to late banker Vladimir Kogan in the resolution of Bank UralSib and then relocated to Israel. The CrimeRussia reviewed operations of the ‘unsinkable’ Deposit Insurance Agency and its top manager Valery Miroshnikov – as well as his extensive connections actively used in the course of liquidation of Russian banks. The main question is: why is the Central Bank of Russia turning a blind eye to suspicious actions of the DIA?
