Russian Billionaire Loses Half His Fortune In Alimony After Divorcing Putin's Daughter Katerina

Posted by Sama in News On 27th January 2018

The recent divorce of Putin's youngest daughter Katerina has sparked new rumors and conspiracy theorists are coming up with different theories saying the agenda behind Putin's daughter might be not as simple as it appears to be.

#1 Famous For His Ruthlesness

Putin is famous as a ruthless leader who has dominated Russian politics for quite some time. The infamous politician has ruled his nation with harsh tactics and it seems like Putin does not like when someone leaves his daughter. As Putin's daughter Katerina recently got divorced by her husband Shamalov, a Russian billionaire and to punish him, Shamalov has been stripped of his half wealth in the name of alimony.

#2 Stripped Of Half Of His Wealth

According to the latest reports, Russian President Vladimir Putin's youngest daughter Katrina Tikhonova's marriage to Kirill Shamalov has ended. And as a result of divorce it is cited, Kirill Shamalov son of Putin pal Nikolay Shamalov, may have lost more than half his wealth.

#3 All The Privileges Ended With The Divorce

Reports said Shamalov received 4.3 percent stake in petrochemical giant Sibur around the time of his marriage to Tikhonova in 2012-13. During the course of his marriage, he managed to pick up another 17 percent of the shares for about $2.2 billion. Soon after the divorce, it was announced by Sibur that Shamalov sold the 17 percent shares and reportedly the business tycoon has made zero from the sale because apparently Shamalov was only allowed to hold those shares as a stake that guaranteed him being a part of Putin's family. This means the privileges ended as soon as the marriage ended.

#4 Shamalov Denying All Claims

According to sources, Shamalov has denied any such news and claims he faced such a big loss as a result of some unlucky investment. Though the reports say otherwise, as according to Bloomberg, Shamalov's wealth last year was estimated at $1.3 billion which now is $800 million or less now given the divorce cost and possibly an interest payment on a huge loan.

#5 Is Shamalov Volkova?

The local media has reported, Zhanna Volkova, a London-based Russian national who once claimed to be Russia's youngest billionaire is speculated to be Shamalov. Both have not yet commented anything on it which has further sparked rumors.

#6 An Online Debate Has Sparked New Rumors

The Internet has come with its own theory and according to an online debate, the alleged divorce could be a carefully executed plan of Purin to strengthen his ties with the West. The alleged divorce is also sparking rumors because just as the Kremlin didn't confirm Katerina's marriage to Shamalov in 2013, it also has not confirmed the divorce.

#7 Katerina Supposed To Take Over Her Father In 2024

Katerina Tikhonova, the youngest daughter of Putin is famous for her dancing especially "boogie-woogie" acrobatic rock 'n' roll performances. There were also once online rumors that Putin is training Katerina to be his successor in 2024 when he steps down from his position.

#8 Keeping His Family Hidden Away From The World

It is no secret to the world that Putin does not like discussing his family with the world and all the guests invited to his youngest daughter's wedding in 2013 were sworn to secrecy and even the Kremlin made no announcement about the marriage.

#9 Protecting Family Fortune

There have been lots of conspiracy theories going on regarding the divorce and it appears as Putin is trying his best to keep everything private, probably to protect the large family fortunes from EU and US sanctions.

#10 Putin Contesting In Next Presidential Elections

Recently it was announced by Putin that he will be contesting in the March 2018 Presidential elections in which his opponent was supposed to be Alexei Navalny, but he has been banned from participation in the elections.
