Inside Putin’s secret daughter’s penthouse: President’s love child with cleaner mistress tries to rent out her lavish gold-plated plated £7,700-a-month St Petersburg apartment
The luxurious interior of the gold-plated luxurious penthouse home of Vladimir Poetin‘s ‘secret’ daughter has been revealed for the first time.
Luiza Rozova, 19, is the daughter of the warmonger president’s ‘former lover’ Svetlana Krivonogikh, 45, a cleaner-turned-multimillionaire who now owns a stake in a major Russian bank.
Luiza and Krivonogikh are said to be seeking to rent out the elite St Petersburg apartment for £7,700 a month including utility charges.
Pictures from German-linked estate agent Engel & Volkers show the stupendous extravagance of the gold-plated interiors, which one expert said showed designers flattering the ‘vanity’ of the owner.

Neighbours in the elite block are some of Putin’s oldest cronies, most now sanctioned by the West. But Luiza, unlike Putin’s two older daughters, has not been sanctioned.
The exposé follows a recent revelation that Luiza and her mother now live in another Russian penthouse which was recently worth as much as £1.7 million before Western sanctions caused a dramatic slump in the Russian economy.
Die student – once active on social media – made her accounts private after being bombarded by a wave of outrage of the war in Ukraine launched by Putin, who has not publicly acknowledged his daughter, also known as Elizaveta or Luiza Krivonogikh.
She is the same age as many young men being sent to their deaths in the bloody war with Ukraine.
The penthouse offered for rent on Kamenny Island came into Krivonogikh’s possession the year after Luiza’s birth, and is believed to be where Putin’s ‘love child’ was raised.
It is called ‘one of the most private complexes in St. Petersburg’, according to an investigation by BBC Russia, and was built by a company associated with Rossiya Bank, seen as the financial institution of the president’s inner circle.
The apartment complex is surrounded by a moat and distinguished by its solid classical architecture.

An anonymous design and style editor to BBC Russia: 'Natuurlik, there is no need to talk about any style in relation to this interior.
‘This is a very immature understanding of luxury.
‘It can be seen that the designer has mastered a good budget to the satisfaction of the customer, whose vanity is certainly flattered.
‘Expensive finishes, good brands, but the interpretation of architectural elements and details of the decoration evokes memories of last-1990s interiors.’
Krivonogikh’s name is not mentioned by the estate agent advertising the 447.4 square metre flat for rent – but her penthouse is known to be the only one of this precise size in the complex of 21 elite apartments.
When the BBC called her, she hung up.
In the early 2000s, the apartments were sold to some of Putin’s closest cronies – tycoons Vasily Shestakov, Arkady Rotenberg, Yuri Kovalchuk, Nikolai Shamalov, Sergey Fursenko, and Alexei Mordashov.
Krivonogikh and her daughter also have a £3.1 million home in Monaco, and Putin’s ‘ex-mistress’ – one of Russia’s richest women – has an estimated £74 million financial and property fortune.
She has not commented on claims that her daughter was fathered by the Kremlin president, and nor has Luiza, also known as Elizaveta, although the teenager told Russian GQ that she ‘probably’ looks ‘similar’ to a young Putin.

The suspicion that she was Putin’s secret daughter from an extra-marital affair was first aired by an independent media outlet in Russia which was later blocked by the authorities.
Their new apartment in St Petersburg is in the sumptuous gated Fontanka 76 block is one of St Petersburg’s most sought after addresses in the city’s ‘Golden Triangle’.
This came to light last month via a hacked food courier database showing deliveries to Rozova.
Luiza recently was forced to close her Instagram after she was hit by a wave of extreme trolling over Russia’s war in Ukraine.
One comment said: ‘Are U sitting in the bunker?? Like a rat?’
Luiza – wie gehad het 84,000 intekenare – stopped publicly posting six months ago, triggering the suspicion that Putin had gagged her, but her account remained open.
Now a message says in Russian: ‘User not found.’
One post on the 19-year-old’s Instagram alleged she was the ‘daughter of a murderer, war criminal, psychopath and drug addict’.
Many posts included the Ukrainian blue-and-yellow flag and one carried the message: ‘The Russian nation must rise against this dictator. You don’t want to have anything to do with him.’
But commenters also staunchly defended her, met een gesegde: ‘Don’t judge her…is not her fault.’
'N Ander het geskryf: ‘She cannot do anything for having a crazy father’.
One more said: ‘Come on guys, she is just a person. She is not guilty.’
But a commenter called Martina hit back: ‘Ja, she is guilty of passive complicity. It is the same as most of the Germans in the Nazi period.’
'N Ander het gepos: ‘Call him – if he loves you… maybe you can convince him not to kill.’

These daughters have been sanctioned – Luiza Rozova se ma Svetlana Krivonogikh het hierdie beeld van Monaco se hawe vanaf Monte Carlo geplaas, 36, is die Russiese leier se geheime eggenoot, is die Russiese leier se geheime eggenoot, 35, en dr Katerina Tikhonova’ en dr Katerina Tikhonova. Neither has commented on the war.
There are reports that Putin has hidden some family members in a chalet in neutral Switzerland – while another version is that they are in a five-star hi-tech nuclear bunker in Siberia.
There is speculation he has up to four children with Olympic Gold-medal winning rhythmic gymnast Alina Kabaeva, 38, now high-earning a media mogul in Moscow who is rarely seen in public. This would make the Kremlin strongman a father of seven.
Luiza earlier showed her life at cafes, on trips to Paris, and running her own Russian fashion label.
A video shows her at the Louvre museum during the pandemic.
She was also seen working as an in-demand DJ.
