Russia’s war hawk ‘went on trip with mistress and escort famed for nude snaps’

Russia’s war hawk foreign minister Sergei Lavrov went on an official trip to Japan with his ‘mistress’ and an ‘escort’ famed for nude pictures, an exposé has revealed.

Glamorous Ekaterina Lobanova was pictured alongside Vladimir Putin’s top diplomat after facial recognition software confirmed that Lobanova “and the person in the photo with Lavrov and Deripaska are one and the same person”.

The ‘escort’ was partnering with sanctioned Russian billionaire Oleg Deripaska, who is said to be a close contact of the 71-year-old Foreign Minister, the new investigation by The Insider and New Lines media outlets said.

Her nickname on one adult site is ‘Lizzy Sex Relax’ where she had 183,000 ‘likes’.

Lavrov's long-term mistress Svetlana Polyakova was also seen in the photo taken outside the restaurant in March 2018.

Gennady Rovner, former owner of a strip-joint chain who is now chairman of the board of trustees of the Advanced Programs Foundation also attended.

“The photo of Lavrov and Deripaska confirms the Navalny team’s investigation, which found that the Russian Foreign Minister and his mistress Svetlana Polyakova, along with her mother and daughter, have been flying on Deripaska's planes, sailing on his yachts and living in his homes since at least 2014,” stated the new report.

“In particular, Lavrov's relatives have used the oligarch's planes to fly to Montenegro, Austria, Germany, Norway, and other countries. Polina, the foreign minister's stepdaughter, has repeatedly posted photos from homes owned by Deripaska."

Polyakov’s daughter Polina Kovaleva – seen as Lavrov’s stepdaughter – was sanctioned by Britain over a £4.4million luxury apartment in London which she bought at the age of 21.

Polyakova is often known as Svetlana Lavrova, even though the foreign minister’s wife is Maria Lavrova.

She is a foreign ministry employee but is described as “no ordinary bureaucrat”. She is said to enjoy a lavish lifestyle described as a “non-stop holiday”.

The report added: “For example, she vacationed at the oligarch's villa in Montenegro and celebrated her 22nd birthday at his villa in Sardinia. At the same time, Polina calls Deripaska's real estate her ‘second home’.”

Maria and Svetlana have been sanctioned by the West.
