VLADIMIR Putin took fellow leaders for a night out in a strip club reportedly owned by his mistress, it’s been claimed.
The 70-year-old tyrant and his pals to the unusual venue in a bid to bolster relations, which have been strained over the Ukraine war.
The group were whisked by a VIP bus to the club in St Petersburg, reports Russian investigative website Project Media and the Kommersant newspaper.
The Leningrad Centre is majority owned by his ex-lover Svetlana Krivonogikh, 47, a former cleaner who is now one of Russia’s richest women with a banking and property empire, says Project Media.
The leaders of Armenia, Azerbaijan, and Kazakhstan were among those hosted by Putin at the Leningrad Centre venue.
Putin is said to have presented then all with gaudy white and yellow gold memento “rings of power” jewellery to each of the eight visiting leaders.

A promotional video for an erotic show held at the club “waiters deliver free champagne to tables scattered throughout the hall, and ticket prices start at 25 thousand rubles.
“On stage is an erotic show featuring acrobatics, half-naked satyr dances, and a girl lying in bed dressed only in a negligee.”
The leaders he hosted are all from the Commonwealth of Independent States, a loose confederation of nations that were all once part of the Soviet Union.
Krivonogikh is also the mother of Putin’s love child Elizaveta Vladimirovna Krivonogikh, who is also known as Luiza Roseva.

The 19-year-old student born during his first term as president but her public social media profile vanished ahead of the start of the war in Ukraine.
Krivonogikh was Putin’s mistress from the time he was head of the FSB security service and his first stint as prime minister.
The relationship – during his marriage – ended before he became secretly involved with Olympic gold medal winning rhythmic gymnast Alina Kabaeva, now 39.
It is unclear how Krivonogikh accrued such wealth but she holds a 75 per cent stake in the Leningrad Centre and a lucrative holding in Rossiya Bank.
She had worked as a “cleaning lady” and lived in a communal flat in St Petersburg.
Last year Project Media journalists who exposed Putin’s lovechild were arrested.

It claimed flight logs showed how Krivonogikh often joined Putin on planes in the late 1990s.
