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.
