The wife of Vladimir Putin’s top spokesman has sparked international outrage over a Holocaust-inspired ice-skating routine in which she donned a death-camp uniform and mimed shooting her partner for a cheering audience.
Competitive skater Tatyana Navka and her partner, Andrew Burkovsjy, glided across the ice grinning in black-and-white striped pajamas emblazoned with the Star of David and death-camp serial numbers, according to the Daily Mail.
The duo performed the questionable piece for the Russian reality TV program “Ice Age.”
Navka, a two-time world-champion skater and 2006 Winter Olympic gold medalist, is married to the Russian president’s head mouthpiece, Dmitry Peskov.
