Maria Vorontsova, the eldest daughter of Russian President Vladimir Putin, made 944 million rubles ($10.7 million) working for the New Medical Company (NOMEKO) between 2019 and 2022, according to an investigative report released on January 15 by the team of opposition politician Aleksei Navalny.
According to Navalny’s team, Vorontsova is an endocrinologist by training who joined NOMEKO in 2019 as a co-founder and council member.
The investigation revealed that NOMEKO’s primary source of revenue was its partnership with the Russian business Sogaz, which is partially owned by Yury Kovalchuk, one of Russia’s wealthiest individuals and a close ally of Vladimir.
According to a 2021 investigation by Current Time, a Russian-language network operated by RFE/RL in collaboration with VOA, Sogaz provided financial support to several of Putin’s close allies, including the chairwoman of the Federation Council of the Parliament, the heads of the Federal Protection Service (FSO), and other high-ranking Russian officials.
According to Navalny’s team’s investigation, Vorontsova receives a monthly salary of 110,000 rubles ($1,250) from Moscow State University, where she is supposedly employed by the Fundamental Medicine Faculty, in addition to her salary and dividends from NOMEKO.
Although Navalny is being held in a Russian prison for a total of 19 years on charges of extremism and other offenses, his team is still working and posting their research online.
In a previous investigation on Sogaz, Current Time found that Vorontsova and her second husband, Yevgeny Nagorny, own a 230-square-meter penthouse in central Moscow that is thought to be worth more than $9 million, or 800 million rubles. Additionally, Vorontsova owns a 400 million ruble home close to Moscow.
Following an investigation, the Mozhem Oblast Telegram channel revealed in April 2023 that Vorontsova and their youngest daughter, Katerina Tikhonova, made over 1.2 billion rubles ($13.6 million) in 2022 through their companies.
According to Mozhem Obyasnit’s investigation, v had no profits in 2018, but after Vorontsova joined the company as a co-founder and member of the directors’ council, its annual earnings shot up to 597 million rubles, or nearly $6.8 million.
Luiza Rozova – Putin’s Alleged Secret Daughter
Elizaveta Krivonogikh, also known as Luiza Rozova, captured headlines as the alleged illegitimate daughter of Vladimir Putin. This 18-year-old socialite from St Petersburg has been thrust into the public eye, prompting questions about her mysterious background.
Family Ties: Luiza’s mother, Svetlana Krivonogikh, was romantically linked to Putin in the late nineties and early noughties. Formerly a cleaner, Svetlana ascended to become one of Russia’s wealthiest women, with her name surfacing prominently in the Pandora Papers in 2021.
Identity Speculations: Born in March 2003, Luiza’s father has never been publicly acknowledged, adding an air of mystery to her lineage.

Socialite Ventures: After her alleged connection to Putin became public, Luiza’s social media following surged, reaching 84,000 followers. A globetrotter, she traveled between Russia, Monaco, and Paris, showcasing her own fashion line by the age of 18. Luiza’s diverse ventures included being an in-demand DJ, owning a fashion brand promoting ‘amateur clothes for every day,’ and even being spotted in a ‘government’ BMW on her 18th birthday.
Instagram Fame and Disappearance: Luiza’s Instagram account, with 84,000 followers, became a platform for her activities. However, after facing online abuse, she deactivated her account. Speculation arose that her silence might be influenced by her suspected father, Putin, known for guarding his family’s privacy zealously.
Family Dynamics: Putin, known for his private life, acknowledged only two daughters with ex-wife Lyudmila Aleksandrovna Ocheretnaya – Maria Faassen and Katerina Tikhonova. Maria, a pediatric endocrinologist, and Katerina, a director at Moscow State University, maintain a low profile.
