Katerina Tikhonova, Vladimir Putin’s Daughter: 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know

On November 28, it was confirmed that Katerina Tikhonova is the younger daughter of Vladimir Putin.  While there has long been speculation that Tikhonova — who uses the surname of her grandmother — was the daughter of Russia’s president, it has never been confirmed.

According to Reuters, a World Rock‘n‘Roll Confederation (WRRC) official identified Tikhonova as Putin’s daughter.

“WRRC Vice President for Legal Affairs Manfred Mohab told Reuters he knew Tikhonova through their work together on the confederation’s presidium. When asked whether he knew Tikhonova was Putin’s daughter, he said: ‘Yes. I know her, yes of course.’ Asked a second time, he nodded and said: ‘Yes,’” Reuters reports.

Her mother is Putin’s ex-wife, Lyudmila.

Here is what you need to know:


1. She Is a Dancer

Tikhonova is an accomplished dancer who has competed in the world of acro-dance for many years.

The 31-year-old is part of the acrobatic rock‘n‘roll, which is described as “a niche dance discipline she has competed in and helps manage through senior positions at the WRRC and the Russian national federation,” by Reuters.

“Tikhonova has competed in a number of tournaments in acrobatic rock’n’roll, a discipline for couples that involves a mixture of energetic dancing and virtuosic acrobatic moves,” The Guardian reported last year.

You can watch one of her performances in the video below.


2. She Is Married to Kirill Shamalov

Tikhonova is married to the son of one of her father’s friends. Her husband, Kirill Shamalov, is the son of Nikolay Shamalov, who co-owns Rossiya Bank. The younger Shamalov is the vice president of a Russian gas company called Sibur Holding. According to the Express UK, “the Russian government holds 38 per cent of the shares of the gas company.”

As one can imagine, Shamalov is very wealthy. In 2015, Tikhonova and Shamalov had an estimated net worth of $2 billion.

“Also among the young couple’s holdings is a seaside villa in Biarritz, France, estimated to be worth about $3.7 million. That asset, too, was acquired by Kirill from Timchenko, a commodities trader who has known the president since at least the 1990s,” Reuters reported back in 2015.


3. She Has an Older Sister Named Maria

Putin’s other daughter, Maria (sometimes spelled Mariya), was previously identified by the media. Maria Putin lives in the Netherlands. Many believe that Maria had previously been living with her boyfriend Jorrit Faassen in the village of Voorschoten. According to the Mirror, the two resided in a penthouse in the area, known for its wealth. It has been reported that Maria and Jorrit have since moved out of the building, however.

According to Reuters, Maria attended Moscow State University where she graduated from the school’s Fundamental Medicine Department. Maria had sought a career in endocrinology. In 2012, the New York Times reported that Maria attended St. Petersburg State University where she studied biology.

Her boyfriend works as an executive of a gas company called Gazprom.

When Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 crashed in 2014 and Russia was at the center of controversy over the downed plane, Maria was no where to be found. At least one person who knew Maria said that she hadn’t been seen for over a week after MH17 crashed.

Not much else is known about Maria, especially her whereabouts in recent years, as her life is kept extremely private.


4. She Attended the German School Moscow & Runs Projects at Moscow State University

Tikhonova attended the German School Moscow. The private school is located in Troparyovo-Nikulino District, Western Administrative Okrug, Moscow, Russia. Students who attend the school are spoken to and taught in the German language. According to the New York Times, Tikhonova majored in Asian Studies at St. Petersburg State University.

Tikhonova works at Moscow State University, where she holds a senior position, according to Reuters. It has been reported that she runs two initiatives at the school: the National Intellectual Development Foundation (NIDF) and the National Intellectual Reserve Centre (NIRC).

“She helps direct a $1.7 billion plan to expand its campus. Katerina’s official advisers at Moscow State University include five members of Putin’s inner circle – including two former KGB officers who knew her when she was a toddler. They served with her father in the 1980s when he was deployed to Dresden, East Germany,” the outlet reported two years ago.


5. In October, The Sun Reported that Putin Wanted to ‘Groom’ His Youngest Daughter to ‘Lead Russia’

Putin does not have any sons, which means that his successor would have to be one of his two daughters. Some outlets — like The Sun — have reported that Putin is “grooming” his youngest daughter for the role.

“Trying to run a woman through an election campaign in Russia is quite an interesting and modern political experiment. Putin does not have a (male) heir – at least officially – but he has two daughters, and one of them, Ekaterina, has already entered the public space with several huge and costly projects,” Putin biographer Natalia Gevorkyan, wrote for the Radio Svoboda website, according to The Sun.

“In 2024, Ekaterina will be 38. In theory, she can take part in the presidential elections and provide a calm time in old age for her father and his closest friends,” Gevorkyan added.

Questions to Putin:
.
From where have you amassed your personal fortune?… and:… How many innocent lives have been sacrificed in order for you to obtain your personal fortune?
.
Questions to the new FBI Director, Christopher A. Wray:
.
In addition to Trump FAILING to sue CNN months ago, for CNN’s refusal to air Trump’s “PUBLIC ANNOUNCEMENT (the which, Trump would SURELY LOSE, as he could be easily shown to be promoting a violation of the CONSTITUTIONALLY SANCTIONED Security of the Person of Americans!)”, he has also F-A-I-L-E-D to legally challenge an alleged “victim” at, h-t-t-p://www(dot)huffingtonpost(dot)com/lisa-bloom/why-the-new-child-rape-ca_b_10619944(dot)html, who has alleged that PHEWTUS is GUILTY of C-H-I-L-D R-A-P-E/ C-H-I-L-D A-B-U-S-E!… and to sue the “FAUX NEWSERS” which have “falsly reported” the said C-H-I-L-D R-A-P-E/ C-H-I-L-D A-B-U-S-E TALE! Thus, how can one– of G-O-O-D C-O-N-S-C-I-E-N-C-E!– trust a wanna-be Prez who screams “FAUX NEWS”, “FAUX NEWS”, “FAUX NEWS”!… and, who’d sue his neighbor’s housecat if given the chance!… but, would “clam up” tighter than a Contestant’s crotch on a segment of his The Apprentice, when challenged on his F-A-I-L-U-R-E to go after the I-L-L-E-G-A-L-I-T-Y O-F A C-L-A-I-M O-F C-H-I-L-D R-A-P-E/ C-H-I-L-D A-B-U-S-E!! The reason, is ABUNDANTLY CLEAR!… T-H-E C-L-A-I-M I-S L-E-G-I-T!… A-N-D T-H-E R-E-M-O-V-E-D J-A-M-E-S C-O-M-E-Y, T-R-U-M-P– A-N-D I S-U-G-G-E-S-T, T-R-U-M-P-‘-S “W-I-F-E”!– K-N-O-W I-T!
.
Christgopher, If the allegation of C-H-I-L-D R-A-P-E/ C-H-I-L-D A-B-U-S-E re PHEWTUS is C-R-I-M-I-N-A-L and T-O-R-T-I-O-U-S!… and, proffered by a “FAUX VICTIM”** and “FAUX MEDIA”!… then will you– as the new FBI Director (who’s been Nominated by a Prez who was in a C-L-E-A-R CONFLICT OF INTEREST when making the Appointment/ Nomination!)!– be going after this “FAUX VICTIM”, for proffering C-R-I-M-I-N-A-L A-N-D T-O-R-T-I-O-U-S C-L-A-I-M-S O-F C-H-I-L-D R-A-P-E/ C-H-I-L-D A-B-U-S-E? And, will you be going after the FAUX MEDIA for proffering C-R-I-M-I-N-A-L A-N-D T-O-R-T-I-O-U-S “N-E-W-S” O-F C-H-I-L-D R-A-P-E/ C-H-I-L-D A-B-U-S-E? Christgopher A. Wray, will you uphold your D-U-T-Y to protect America’s children, and their families? Otherwise!… it’s hard to rationalize why the FBI would leave the alleged Trump victim “HIGH AND DRY (e.g., she withdrew her filing on Nov 4, 2016, due to said fears for her life!… stated her counsel!)”!… and CONVERSELY, would fail to go after this FAUX VICTIM for C-R-I-M-I-N-A-L-L-Y A-N-D T-O-R-T-I-O-U-S-L-Y giving false testimony re an allegation of C-H-I-L-D R-A-P-E on the one hand, and, would fail to go after FAUX NEWESERS for reporting C-H-I-L-D R-A-P-E on the other! And, how does that absence of FBI D-U-T-Y even make sense? And, why would one believe– should one believe!– that the FBI is S-O-O-O-O I-N-C-O-M-P-E-T-E-N-T that it would either fail to protect a victim of C-H-I-L-D R-A-P-E (F-O-R W-H-I-C-H, T-H-E-R-E C-A-N B-E N-O M-O-R-A-T-O-R-I-U-M!)!… or fail to go after A FAKE VICTIM who has alleged such a claim, and fail to go after FAUX NEWSERS which have reported same! A-B-S-O-L-U-T-E-L-Y I-N-C-R-E-D-I-B-L-E! And in Huffington Post’s report of Trump’s C-H-I-L-D R-A-P-E/ C-H-I-L-D A-B-U-S-E charges, there was SUFFICIENT EVIDENCE for a judge to ratify the sending of the matter to a court for adjudication by Dec 28, 2016! And, so!… if the victim was P-A-I-D O-F-F (I.E., I-F H-U-S-H M-O-N-E-Y W-A-S O-F-F-E-R-E-D U-P A-N-D R-E-C-E-I-V-E-D!), T-H-E-N T-H-E V-I-C-T-I-M A-N-D D-O-N-A-L-D T-R-U-M-P S-H-O-U-L-D B-E C-R-I-M-I-N-A-L-L-Y C-H-A-R-G-E-D! The victim, for R-E-C-E-I-V-I-N-G A B-R-I-B-E!… and PHEWTUS, for O-F-F-E-R-I-N-G A B-R-I-B-E, and for C-H-I-L-D R-A-P-E/ C-H-I-L-D A-B-U-S-E!
.
Lastly… Christgopher, will you be going after PHEWTUS for releasing Classified Information to the Russians, when they paid a visit to the White House earlier this year? And Christgopher, will you be seeking to ensure that the 750 people who were let go by Putin (and who could have provided HARD EVIDENCE re Trump-Putin COLLUSION during the 2016 U.S. Federal Election!)… and, by way of your Global Security contacts!… ensure the health and safety of those who are now VULNERABLE PUTIN TARGETS? Thanks!
.
Please!… no emails!… Jesus is Lord!
.
P.S.: Given the VERACITY of the allegation of C-H-I-L-D R-A-P-E/ C-H-I-L-D A-B-U-S-E!… and Comey’s ACKNOWLEDGEMENT of this!… should Comey’s KNOWLEDGE soon pose an “indirect threat” to “certain” White House interests (e.g., if Comey decides to accept the offer from Julian Assange to act as a WikiLeaks Spy, re U.S. Government wrongdoing!), I’d be VERY CONCERNED about the safety and security of James Comey! Although!… maybe!… Julian Assange may feel that Comey would be “better protected” if he “befriends” the WikiLeaks League! And so, Christgopher Wray!… will you ensure the safety of James Comey should Comey decide to “spill the beans” on PHEWTUS?

**The Federal Stalking Statute (see, Federal Stalking Statute, 18 U.S.C. §2261A) makes it a F-E-L-O-N-Y for someone to use any interactive computer service, or electronic communication service or system (by the FBI, CIA, NSA, the Media, or FAUX VICTIM!) with the intent to kill, injure, HARASS, INTIMIDATE, or place under surveillance (through an official and/ or an unofficial proxy!) another person… and engage in a course of conduct that places a person in reasonable fear of death, or serious bodily injury, OR CAUSES, ATTEMPTS TO CAUSE, OR WOULD REASONABLY BE EXPECTED TO CAUSE SUBSTANTIAL EMOTIONAL DISTRESS (but, let us include, THE POTENTIAL COMPROMISE OF A U.S. FEDERAL ELECTION PROCESS!)! And so… if the “FAUX VICTIM” and/ or “FAUX MEDIA” have F-E-L-O-N-I-O-U-S-L-Y used said interactive computer services, or electronic communication services or systems with the intent to kill, injure, HARASS, INTIMIDATE, or place under surveillance (through an official and/ or un unofficial proxy!) DONALD TRUMP (a.k.a., PHEWTUS!)… and engage in a course of conduct that places DONALD TRUMP (a.k.a., PHEWTUS!) in reasonable fear of death, or serious bodily injury, OR CAUSES, ATTEMPTS TO CAUSE, OR WOULD REASONABLE BE EXPECTED TO CAUSE SUBSTANTIAL EMOTIONAL DISTRESS, then its incumbant upon the FBI (AND ANY OTHER DUTY BOUND INVESTIGATIVE BODY!) to end such a breach of the Federal Stalking Law!

TRUMPATHY: the instigation of sympathy for an allegation of faux news (for inclusion in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, DSM(MD)-FIVE.ONE, of the American Psychiatric Association/ APA)

Good christan

This is my personal advice (seriously),,
To heavy.com.
God is refuge for all who believe him dearly.
But ,,
,,it is not wise to narrate their place of living.
It is not good.
Write about their political views .
Magazines must know their limit.
God bless Putin family.
This is my advice to the author of this article Post..
Today Ivanga Trump visited India ,,and the whole security guards were from USA…
You want your president’s daughter ,,
But not Putin’s daughter,,?
Why this partialities,,?
God bless you.
