Daughter of Putins spokesman upset by travel ban as dad threatens nuclear war

The daughter of Russian President Vladimir Putin's spokesman is 'upset' over international travel sanctions preventing her going on holiday.

Elizaveta Peskova, 24, who is Dmitry Peskov's daughter, reportedly told Business Insider in a telephone interview last Friday that the sanctions imposed on her family have not harmed her financially but are still "completely unfair and unfounded".

The young woman also complained about missed travel opportunities, as she reportedly said: "I'm upset because I would like to travel and love other cultures."

She also seemed baffled at the fact she was facing sanctions at all, adding: "I was really surprised because it is weird to introduce sanctions on someone who is 24 years old and has nothing to do with the situation."

Peskova is reportedly the founder of a communications company and the director of a historical foundation.

She also has a Master's degree in International Relations.

It is currently unclear how much money she has, but her Instagram account, which boasts 250,000 followers, shows her regularly posting images of her lavish lifestyle.

In a post at the beginning of last month, the young woman revealed that she has her own political aspirations as she posed with two men in front of a portrait of Putin.

A translation of the post said: "The big plus of remote work is more time for your own projects and hobbies.

"We are preparing a large-scale project of historical, cultural, diplomatic and political in character."

The news comes just hours after her 54-year-old father, told CNN's Christiane Amanpour that Russia would use nukes if threatened.

When asked under what conditions Putin would use Russia's nuclear capability, Peskov replied: "if it is an existential threat for our country, then it can be."

He also repeatedly refused to rule out whether Russia would use nuclear weapons in the war on Ukraine.

Meanwhile, Russian forces continue to bomb civilian infrastructure as their invasion of Ukraine has reportedly become increasingly bogged down in the face of fierce resistance from Ukrainian forces.

Back in February, Vladimir Putin issued his own chilling threat on TV as he said: "No matter who tries to stand in our way or all the more so create threats for our country and our people, they must know that Russia will respond immediately, and the consequences will be such as you have never seen in your entire history."
