Wife of Putin aide puts on Holocaust-themed ice show

In striped concentration camp uniform with yellow star, Tatiana Navka competes in popular Russian reality TV competition

The wife of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s spokesman performed a Holocaust-themed ice skating show on a popular reality television show Saturday night.

Tatiana Navka, a former Olympic figure skating medalist and wife of Putin’s chief spokesman Dmitry Peskov, donned striped concentration camp uniforms complete with yellow stars of David, to compete for top honors on the celebrity competition show “Ice Age.”

She and her partner Andre Burkovsky skated across the ice to “Beautiful That Way” by Israeli singer Achinoam “Noa” Nini.

The performance appeared to be well received by the audience.

In an Instagram post, Navka said the 4-minute performance was based on the 1997 Holocaust film “Life is Beautiful.”

“Based on one of my favorite movies!” she posted Saturday. “Show this movie to your children!”

The usually glamorous Navka added that her plain look without makeup “was necessary” for the performance.

On Sunday morning, a headline on Russia’s Rambler news site read: “Tatiana Navka appeared before a large audience without makeup.”

Navka and Burkovsky were given a score of 12.00 but it was not immediately clear if the pair made it through to the next round of competition.
