The EU is planning to impose sanctions on Vladimir Putin's alleged gymnast lover Alina Kabaeva for her role in Kremlin propaganda, according to a document.
Kabaeva is a late addition to the list of individuals targeted in a sixth package of measures against Russia in response to the war in Ukraine, after she last month likened the Soviet victory over Nazism in the Second World War to Putin's invasion.
The proposal identifies Kabaeva as the chairwoman of the board of directors of the National Media Group, a holding company that owns significant shares in almost all major Russian state media that make up Putin's propaganda machine.
The former gymnast and former Duma lawmaker is 'closely associated with President Vladimir Putin,' the document adds.
