Putin’s youngest daughter – Ekaterina Tikhonova
Putin’s youngest daughter Yekaterina Tikhonova is known as an acrobatic rock and roll dancer. Thanks to participation in the championships of Russia, Europe and the world. In 2016, together with Dmitry Alekseev, he won the Russian Cup in acrobatic rock and roll.
In February 2013, Ekaterina married businessman Kirill Shamalov. The fathers of the newlyweds have been on friendly terms for a long time. The wedding took place modestly at the Igora ski resort in St. Petersburg. Only 100 people were invited to the celebration. It was strictly protected from prying eyes, so guests were asked to hand over smartphones at the entrance. In return, they received white scarves, on which a monogram with the initials of the newlyweds “K&K” (Katerina and Kirill) is embroidered with red thread.
Marriage of Tikhonova and Shamalov
In January 2018, Ekaterina Tikhonova and Kirill Shamalov divorced. At the same time, the Russian edition of Tatler magazine reported that Putin’s secret son-in-law was having an affair with Zhanna Volkova, the ex-wife of Sergei Volkov, deputy head of the Moscow mayor’s office. It is noteworthy in this story that in 2018 Forbes magazine named Kirill Shamalov (born 1982) the youngest dollar billionaire in Russia ($ 1400 million), but already in 2019 the businessman was excluded from this list due to the lack of a billion. In a year, his fortune fell by almost a third, leaving $ 500 million of assets.

In May 2019, Putin’s youngest daughter defended her dissertation at Moscow State University and became a candidate of physical and mathematical sciences. Scientific research is devoted to the calculation of mathematical models of vision correction in extreme conditions. The evidence base was also collected when the astronauts worked in low Earth orbit. Katerina Tikhonova was late for her defense, but everything went smoothly, and she received her doctoral degree by secret ballot.

How did it all start?
The investigation was initiated by journalist Oleg Kashin. In 2015, he published a scandalous article with the modest title “She”.
In the author’s material, Kashin refers to the publication of RBC about the expansion of Moscow State University. His attention was drawn to the fact that the Innopraktika company, headed by Ekaterina Tikhonova, would be developing the concept. At that time, almost nothing was known about this woman, except that she was engaged in acrobatic dancing.
Earlier, the reporter received information about the activities of Putin’s youngest daughter, who allegedly oversees the project to create a scientific and technical valley at Moscow State University.
Comparing the data of two women with classified biographies, Kashin came to the conclusion that the daughter of the President of Russia is Ekaterina Tikhonova herself, who was a professional dancer, and now heads the research fund and director of Innopraktika. At the end of his article, the reporter invites readers to draw their own conclusions about the present and future of the conspiratorial daughter of the head of our state.
The situation was aggravated by the lack of real photos of Maria and Ekaterina Putin on the Internet. At the request of users, search engines spread a lot of fakes. You can only find old photos in which the daughters of the current president are very young.
Childhood on a business trip
Vladimir Putin’s 31-year-old daughter Yekaterina Tikhonova was born, like her older sister, in Germany. In 1986, this country was also called the GDR. At that time, the KGB officer and his wife were on a long trip abroad. Therefore, the youngest daughter was born in Dresden. The girl spent all her childhood in a German environment. Some sources also indicate that her correct name is Katerina, which is associated with the peculiarities of transliteration and compilation of documents by German specialists.
