A mom-of-22 who had has revealed that she "can't stand the silence" after her husband was arrested for money laundering.

Russian woman Kristina Ozturk, 24, lived with her 57-year-old husband Galip Ozturk in the Georgian republic of Adjara before his arrest on May 31.

As well as Ozturk giving birth to one of her children, she and her husband have spent more than $260,000 on surrogates between March 2020 and July 2021, welcoming another 21 children into their family.

The couple has also spent a further $124,000 a year on 16 live-in nannies who care for their large family.

However, their plans to grow their family even further have been put on hold after Ozturk was arrested following a police raid in Georgia.

As reported by Bloomberg, the businessman - who owns the bus company Metro Turizm - was detained on charges related to money laundering and falsifying documents.

Per News.com.au, this isn't the first time Ozturk was caught by law enforcement. In 2018, he fled to Georgia after being sentenced to life imprisonment for a 1996 murder of a man named Kuvvet Köseoğlu in his home country of Turkey.

Since her husband's arrest, the mother-of-22 has been outspoken in sharing her struggles on social media, writing she "can't stand" Ozturk's absence.

In an emotional statement shared to her 225,000 followers on Instagram on June 8, Kristina wrote: "The feeling of loneliness does not leave me even with such a large number of close people around."

"I'm used to my husband always being at home, always around. Since Galip has been working exclusively from home for the last few years, we spent time together constantly during the day," Kristina added. "At night, when the children were put to bed, we chatted incessantly."

"Now it's more difficult than ever for me, I can't stand silence, I can't stand his absence, I can't sleep and wake up alone, I can't see his empty workplace... I can't see his smile, I can't hear his voice, I can't feel his embrace," she added.

The couple met in the Georgian city of Batumi when Kristina was a single mother-of-one and was on vacationing there from Russia.

Per Daily Mail, Kristina said it was love at first sight when she met her husband and described him as her "mentor, guide, and fairytale prince all rolled into one".

The pair's first child Mustafa was born on March 10, 2020, while their most recent and 21st child, Judy, is just three-months-old.
