Maria Vorontsova, 38, daughter of Kremlin chief Vladimir Putin, utters well-sounding sentences, albeit strangely wooden and far from believable: "Russia is a people-oriented society." “For us, the value of human life is the highest value.” "I dream that people have the opportunity to know themselves so that we can all understand each other better and communicate better."
Vorontsova said these carefully chosen words in an extremely rare public appearance for an interview with a non-profit organization. The conversation apparently took place in mid-December, which is now reported by the news site "Agentstvo". The Russian president has so far only spoken indirectly about his children, and nothing has been heard from the Kremlin about Maria Vorontsova and her younger sister Katerina Tikhonova. The famous father's name is also not mentioned in the interview.
What is certain is that Maria Vorontsova is a doctor and works in genetic research. Her “hobbies” are correspondingly professional, which she now talks about: “I read scientific or medical literature in my free time.” She also dedicates herself to the inspiring things in life: "Everything that is beautiful. Paintings, museums, theater, music, poetry." And sport: "At least a few hours a week, surfing and skiing." A healthy lifestyle is important to her.
As the daughter of probably the richest and most powerful man in Russia, a sophisticated, educated middle-class lifestyle may be normal, but many Russians are likely to dismiss her words as the usual, bizarre constant propaganda. According to Agentstvore, the 42-minute conversation was also viewed less than 1,000 times on YouTube. In view of the ruthless war of aggression against Ukraine, Russia's conspicuously often emphasized "philanthropy" sounds like a disgusting mockery. Questions about the military operation were not planned anyway.
