Where is Oksana Marchenko now, who spoke Ukrainian in an embroidered shirt but was related to Putin

Oksana Marchenko betrayed Ukraine and may be preparing to resume media activities in Russia

Oksana Marchenko , once a popular Ukrainian talent show host on STB and the wife of former MP Viktor Medvedchuk, who is accused of treason, is almost certainly in Russia, despite having disappeared from social media. The wife of Russian dictator Vladimir Putin's godfather, who chirped in Ukrainian and gained the trust of Ukrainians, is preparing to become a powerful propaganda tool at the age of 51.

The Putinist's whereabouts are known only from rumors, information about her business and rare photos. OBOZ.UA has put everything together to shed light on the "disappearance" of the traitor to Ukraine.

Already in 2014, some of Marchenko's colleagues began to think that the wife of Putin's godfather supported the Kremlin's policies and Russian propaganda narratives. Producer and showman Ihor Kondratiuk spoke about this.

On television, she tried to hide her true views by posing as a patriot of Ukraine. "At the time, Oksana gave the impression of an absolutely adequate, professional and understandable person who positioned herself as a patriot. She spoke Ukrainian and was against the judges speaking any other language. But then it happened, as we all know," recalled producer Volodymyr Zavadiuk, who worked on entertainment projects for STB and 1+1 TV channels.

Shortly before Russia's full-scale invasion, the Putinist fled Ukraine and traveled to Moscow to meet with Russian showman Nikolay Baskov to talk to him about "new times, today, God, and love."

The road to Ukraine has been closed to her since then. After reuniting with her husband in Russia, Marchenko went quiet and resurfaced only in 2024.

She released the second season of the Pilgrimage project, which was allegedly filmed in 2021 but stolen from her Ukrainian estate. According to the Putinist, the "thieves" returned the material to her.

Shortly after that, the former "patriot" slightly updated her image and published her first photo in a long time. Then it became clear that the Putinist was fine and preparing to return to the media.

Our editorial team spoke with an informed insider to find out the details of Marchenko's life and activities in Russia. The conversation revealed that the Kremlin is planning a large-scale campaign to promote Medvedchuk's political project "Other Ukraine," with Marchenko as its face. Her image will allegedly be built around "correct family values" and religion.

According to insiders, the disgraced presenter mostly stays in Russia, but sometimes goes on vacation to the Mediterranean Sea in Cyprus. In addition, Moscow officials are talking about the traitor's affair with one of Putin's bodyguards, as well as her warm relationship with Azarov and the Yanukovychs.

The latest information to shed light on Marchenko's whereabouts and activities surfaced when journalists found evidence of her cooperation with a traitorous producer from STB in Russia.

Their company will be engaged in the production of films and television programs, editing, distribution and advertising of the produced projects, as well as activities in the field of performing arts. These facts suggest that Russia is actively preparing for the Putinist's media comeback.
