Where in the world is Ludmila Putin? Since Vladimir V. Putin became Russia's acting president on New Year's Eve, his wife has barely been seen and never heard. She has appeared in public less than half a dozen times--and then only briefly. Not once has she uttered a word. "I have absolutely no impression of her at all because I've never seen her at all," said Yulia Nazarova, 30, a part-time seamstress. "Maybe that's the way it should be."

The wife of President Vladimir V. Putin made a public debut of sorts with a greeting to underprivileged Russian children and a newspaper interview in which she said she sometimes argues with her husband. Ludmila Putin says she does not hesitate to discuss problems "as a wife" with her husband of 18 years. "Although this is admittedly difficult: The president devotes practically all his time to work," she told the daily newspaper Komsomolskaya Pravda.

President Bush and Russian President Vladimir V. Putin sought to cement their personal bond during an evening barbecue Wednesday, but they made no discernible progress toward settling a post-Cold War dispute over U.S. plans to build a missile defense system. White House Press Secretary Ari Fleischer said there appeared to be little chance that Bush and Putin would be able to resolve their differences on the issue before the summit ends today.
