Katerina Tikhonova, the youngest daughter of Russian President Vladimir Putin, known for revealing very few details about her private and family life to the public, was pictured years later.
According to information in the Washington Post, Tikhonova, 34, attended Russia’s main business conference.
Tikhonova, deputy director of the Institute for Mathematical Research of Complex Systems at Moscow State University, was one of the speakers at the conference.
The 34-year-old attends the annual business conference in Davos, Switzerland, at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum, in a session on litigation of international investment disputes via video link.
In a six-minute speech to the panel on Friday, Tikhonova stressed the need to invest more in what she calls “advanced technologies,” referring to her other project, the Innopraktika Fund, which says its mission is to find commercial applications for advanced complex scientific studies.

While Tikhonova gave her closing speech, St. Petersburg State University and panel moderator Nikolay Kropachev made a joke, but was silenced by the Minister of Justice in a clever gesture. .
Putin has long preferred intense secrecy when it comes to his family. The Russian leader has never publicly revealed his children, except to say that he has two daughters.
But Tikhonova is widely accepted outside official circles as the daughter of President Vladimir Putin.
Asked about the accuracy of his report that Tikhonova would have a daughter in 2015, the Russian leader simply said that their daughters were “not interested in business or politics.”
Putin rarely talks about his daughters. As the Russian leader announced the approval of the country’s first coronavirus vaccine, Sputnik V last year, he announced that one of his daughters had the vaccine.
However, while making this statement, Putin did not reveal his daughter’s name and kept this matter a mystery.

Putin has avoided questions about the identity of his daughters in recent years, citing security concerns.
The Russian leader’s two daughters were also born in the 1980s, when Putin was a KGB spy for the Russian secret service.
