Russian leader Vladimir Putin is a single man again after his divorce from his wife of 30 years was finalised. The President and his wife Lyudmila announced their plans to separate last summer (Jun13), and now a spokesperson at the Kremlin has confirmed the marriage is over for good. Putin previously revealed the decision to separate and divorce was a "joint decision" based on the fact the couple "practically never saw each other". His wife added, "We will eternally be very close people." The couple has two grown-up daughters, Maria and Yekaterina.
