Putin’s ‘secret agent Cornetto’ is exposed after the SAME lady served him at a event two years apart

From Russia with ice cream: Putin’s ‘secret agent Cornetto’ is exposed after the SAME lady served him cone at annual air show two years apart – but none of the regular staff know who she is

  • Journalists noticed the same woman served Putin ice cream in 2017 and in 2019
  • Other ice cream sellers at the event said they had not seen her before or since 
  • One theory is she’s an employee specially deployed when Putin needs ice cream 
  • Rumoured to be part of his security staff and ‘no less than a colonel of the FSO’  

It looked like a spontaneous stunt when Vladimir Putin bought an ice cream for visiting Turkish leader Recep Tayyip Erdoğan.

But now it appears that the Kremlin leader has his own personal Cornetto lady on hand whenever he needs her – rumoured to be a member of his security service.

Eagle-eyed Russian journalists noted that the blonde ice cream seller at the MAKS-2019 international air show on Wednesday was the same woman who sold Putin his cone two years ago at the same event.

Now the theory has emerged that she is an employee of Putin’s security service specially deployed when the strongman needs an ice cream.

‘She must be no less than a colonel of the FSO (Federal Protection Service),’ MK was told.

‘Honestly, I don’t even know if this is the same saleswoman or not,’ said Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov.

‘It is obvious that the same companies work at MAKS from year to year, or many companies work there again and again, and those who sell ice cream too.’

But the investigation by MK has thrown doubt on this.
