Maria Putin, the daughter of the Russian president, has reportedly fled Holland after calls for her to be deported following the downing of flight MH17.
The 29-year-old elder daughter of Vladmir Putin faced calls for her to be deported from the country where she is reported to live with her Dutch partner Jorrit Faassen, 34, an executive for a Russian consultancy firm.
Today police have stepped up surveillance outside the apartment after she became the target of threats on Twitter and messages on web forums called on people to protest outside the luxury riverside penthouse in Voorschoten.
Media reports that the couple had fled the country were played down in the Dutch press, but locals said they had not been seen in the area since Flight MH17 was brought down last Thursday.
Is this Maria? Some sources in Moscow have expressed doubts about the new images which have emerged of the Putin’s mystery daughter, with one saying this glamorous shot of her in a park is in fact a central American model

Faassen bought up the five-bedroom, two-storey apartment and two other properties when the lavish Jugendstil block was built in 2009. A three-bedroom flat in the block is currently on sale for £545,000.
Unlike the families of Western leaders, the Kremlin refuses point blank to discuss divorced Putin’s children or rumours that have linked him to glamorous Olympic gymnast Alina Kabayeva, who is three years older than Maria.
Maria was catapulted into media attention this week because she is said to live in The Hague, capital of the Netherlands which lost 193 of the 298 victims in the Malaysia Airline crash.
Her father has been widely blamed for covertly providing weapons of death to pro-Moscow rebels in eastern Ukraine.

The mayor of the city of Hilversum, Pieter Broertjes, called for Ms Putin to be deported from the country in a radio interview.
He later apologised for his comments, saying the demands were ‘not wise’ but ‘stemmed from a feeling of helplessness that many will recognise’.
Maria is understood to divide her time between Russia and the Netherlands, with the couple remaining very much within Putin’s inner circle.
However, the face of Maria Putin – if it is her in the two pictures widely published today – will be a revelation to most Russians who have never seen their president, who first came to power in the Kremlin on the final day of 1999, properly pictured with his two daughters by ex-wife Lyudmila, except as children.

Some sources in Moscow have expressed doubts about the new images, with one saying the glamorous shot of her in a park is in fact a central American model.
‘This is not Putin’s daughter, this is a model from Puerto Rico, Wilmadilis ‘Uma’ Blasini Purez,’ echoed a claim on the Ukrainian site which first highlighted the image.
‘This is pure Ukrainian propaganda,’ said a Moscow picture editor, claiming the picture does not show Putin’s daughter and was aimed at harming him in the current conflict.

However, it is hard to check when the Kremlin gives nothing away about the president’s private life, except for a few old family snaps that were understood to be her and sister Ekaterina, now 27, who is believed to have wed the son of a South Korean admiral, though her life is shrouded in mystery too.
As pro-Putin Komsomolskaya Pravda said today of his daughters in covering the Dutch call to throw expel Maria: ‘There is no single recent official photograph of them.’
Whether the latest images are accurate or not, they will be new to most Russians who are used to Soviet-style secrecy over the spouses and families of their leaders with the notable exception of Mikhail Gorbachev.
In a bid to break the taboo, one Moscow newspaper, Sobesednik, in 2011, resorted to asking a ‘medical expert’ if he could seek to identify which women in this picture were Maria and Ekaterina by studying their earlier childhood pictures.

‘In adulthood, the facial features change in proportions, and very difficult to predict exactly how,’ said the expert dismissing such techniques as ‘quackery’ and throwing no new light on the matter.
Maria – known as Masha – born in Leningrad, now St Petersburg -on 28 April 1985 and is named after Putin’s mother.
Their upbringing and schooling was hugely disrupted by his various jobs, initially as a KGB spy in East Germany.
When they returned to Russia with collapse of the USSR in 1991, he was initially without a job and started to work as a driver, before being plucked to work with his old law professor, Anatoly Sobchak, then mayor of Leningrad.

As he became a senior functionary in the St Petersburg government, the girls attended an elite fee-paying German academy in Russia.
Moving to Moscow in 1996, Maria, aged 11, was enrolled by Putin in the Friedrich Haass German International School .
Later when he headed the FSB secret service and went on to become prime minister, he withdrew Maria from the international school, and she – and later her sister – were educated at home evidently for security reasons.
‘We get huge homework assignments even now when we do not go to school,’ complained Maria in a rare quote.
At the time, in 2000, she wanted to study management and Ekaterina – Katya or Katerina – wanted to be a furniture designer.
Though he forbade photographs, early in his first term they did travel abroad, often with him, and had their own itineraries on the back of his official engagements.
