A 17-year-old girl claimed to be Vladimir Putin's secret love child has said she dreams of living in London or New York.
Her alleged unmasking this week comes as the Kremlin admits it is braced for further allegations about the Russian leader's private life.
There is already shock in Moscow at a sudden spate of recent 'disclosures' over women in his life and his health amid claims he has become the victim of leaks from his once-loyal inner circle.
Until now, the media in Russia has obeyed divorcee Putin's edict that 'I have a private life in which I do not permit interference. It must be respected.'

The Russian leader is said to have had an affair with Svetlana Krivonogikh (pictutred) and fathered Elizaveta, 17, during his first term as president
Her mother Svetlana Krivonogikh, 45, is alleged to have had an affair with Putin covering the period he was head of the FSB counterintelligence service, prime minister, and during his first term as Russian president, when her daughter was conceived.
Neither Elizaveta, born in 2003, nor her mother - a shareholder in a major Russian bank who also owns elite property and a St Petersburg erotic nightspot, giving her a $102 million fortune - has commented on the claims, which were attacked by the Kremlin.
On social media where she suggests she is 18 rather than 17, the alleged Putin daughter had earlier replied 'London would be great' when asked where in the world she would like to live.
Asked the same question on a separate occasion, she replied: 'Hogwarts. On Mars. In Narnia. In Japan. In London. In New York.'
Asked what annoyed her, she replied: 'Lies... and when there is no mutual respect, trust and support.
'I get p***ed off for a few minutes, and conclusions are drawn by themselves and to the end.'Insurance Loans Mortgage Attorney Credit Lawyer
After the most recent revelation, the Kremlin admitted it is braced for further allegations about the Russian leader's private life

On the kind of people she respects, she replied: 'Honest, probably.'
She told of her liking for the 'awesomely unusual baritone' of Moby, US singer Richard Melville Hall, whose music 'is sometimes very close to me in mood'.
Putin's spokesman Dmitry Peskov claimed the Russian media report was 'provocative yellow journalism - it doesn't look like serious material.'
The allegations were 'not very convincing' and 'de facto unfounded', a claim echoed by supporters who said no hard documentary evidence had been disclosed.
But Peskov made clear further allegations on Putin's private life are now expected by the Kremlin.
'Clearly, new materials will appear, and so on, we know that,' he said.
'And there is nothing special in it, and nothing deserves any comment.'
