Who Is She?

Who's that pretty girl? 
Where does she live? 
Why would anybody be angry at her?

She lives in the village of Voorschoten, Netherlands, with her boyfriend who has had cushy jobs with several Russian companies. And why shouldn't he? She's Maria Putin, 29, daughter of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

It is rapidly becoming apparent that the Dutch are none too pleased that she is enjoying herself in a country that just lost 193 of its citizens because her father decided that he wanted a bigger piece of the Ukraine.
Maria Putin’s presence in the grieving nation sparked outrage during a national day of mourning, with the arrival of the first wave of coffins carrying victims from Malaysia Airlines Flight 17.

Ukrainians living in the Netherlands were planning to protest outside Maria’s swanky apartment, and Dutch Twitter users targeted the pretty blonde, with one fuming, “Its time you leave B*TCH” over her photo.

[..] The somber Dutch were disgusted to learn that Maria Putin, 29, was living with beau Jorrit Faassen in the penthouse of a building in Voorschoten, a wealthy suburban village near The Hague. All the apartments are listed with the names of inhabitants except for the top plate, which was left blank, a Dutch paper reported.

In a fitting coincidence, the neighborhood is named “Krimwijk” — Dutch for “Crimean District.”
There really isn't a whole lot to the story, but more here and here.

Also, information on other Putin relatives here. Vlad plays his family cards very close to his chest.
