NEWS ITEM: Ukrainian boxing champion Wladimir Klitschko and Ukrainian TV host Oksana Marchenko, the wife of Ukrainian politician Viktor Medvedchuk, on June 10 became the godparents of the newborn daughter of Nestor Shufrich, an Opposition Bloc lawmaker, and close ally of ousted former President Viktor Yanukovych. In the Russian Orthodox Christian tradition, that makes them relatives. Medvedchuk became a relative of Russian President Vladimir Putin after Putin became the godfather of Medvedchuk and Marchenko’s daughter.
