(not satire – it’s the Sun!@?#!)

You may have already read about the Sun’s front-page story yesterday about a so-called immigrant single-mother from Lithuania called NATALIJA BELOVA who they say was claiming £279 a week in benefits but who actually turned out to be a working actress.

If you haven’t seen it, have a look at the story here as told by the excellent PoliticsUK:


Well there could be an even stranger twist to the story.

Some people are saying that the Sun’s so-called foreign benefit scrounger is in fact the widow of a Russian billionaire oligarch.

Five years ago, Leonid Rozhetskin, an outspoken critic of Russian President Vladimir Putin, vanished from his £1 million home just outside the Latvian capital Riga.

Just last year, Mr Rozhetskin’s body was found by police in Latvia who say he was most probably murdered.

His widow – who is said to be still living in the UK – is a former actress and model also by the name of NATALIJA BELOVA.

Here’s an old picture of her from 2006:


And here’s a picture of the Sun’s NATALIJA BELOVA today:


Could it be the same woman? I’m genuinely not sure but then – like Sun journalists – I’ve never been very good at telling the difference between billionaire widows of Russian oligarchs and unemployed Lithuanian actresses either.

How about you?
