“Innopraktika” is engaged in developments in the field of high technologies and is one of the developers of the concept of a technology valley based on Moscow State University.
Reuters and Bloomberg previously called Tikhonova the daughter of Russian President Vladimir Putin.
< p>Endocrinologist Maria Vorontsova— Member of the Council for the implementation of the Federal Scientific and Technical Program for the Development of Genetic Technologies, Leading Researcher at the National Research Center for Endocrinology of the Ministry of Health and Deputy Chairman of the Russian Society of Young Endocrinologists. The BBC Russian service previously called Vorontsova the eldest daughter of President Vladimir Putin, as New Times magazine and Reuters reported.
This information has not received official confirmation or refutation. In December 2015, during a press conference, Putin emphasized that he would not discuss his family, including because of security issues.
Sanctions against Vladimir Putin, Sergey Lavrov and Canada introduced other representatives of the Russian leadership at the end of February. In addition, sanctions were imposed against Russian companies, banks and individuals, including deputies. The United States, the states of Europe and some countries of Asia also announced the sanctions.
The Foreign Ministry called the sanctions against Russia “outright robbery”. Director of the Department of Economic Cooperation of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Dmitry Birichevsky said that this is a “double-edged sanctions weapon” will affect every country in the world. He also said that Russia is preparing retaliatory measures.
According to him, the authors of the restrictions do not understand that Russia is strongly enough integrated into the global economy. At the same time, Russian enterprises are actively involved in production chains and it will be difficult to replace them, Birichevsky noted.
