Lavrov’s daughter – Ekaterina Vinokurova

She was born in 1982 in New York, which means she has American citizenship. She studied at the Manhattan School, graduated from Columbia University, where she studied political science. Received a master’s degree in economics in London.

Having received a good American and European education, the girl returned to Moscow. It was reported that she is the director of the Russian branch of the British auction house Christie’s, which sells antiques and art. She grew up there to the position of director, but then in 2015 she had the opportunity to get her own business – the Smart Art project. The company is engaged in the promotion and development of art objects and is an intermediary between collectors and artists.

Catherine’s husband – Alexander Vinokurov

Ekaterina is married to Alexander Vinokurov. The couple met when the girl was doing postgraduate practice in London in 2008.

The couple got married in 2010. In the same year, their son Leonid was born. And in 2013, a daughter was born. They say that Katerina always dreamed of a family with more than one child, since she herself grew up as the only child of her parents. Also in one of the interviews she told reporters that she had never seen herself married to a foreigner, since she likes the Russian mentality more than the mentality of the Western world.

Alexander Vinokurov is a Russian manager, top manager of a number of investment companies, managing partner and president of the investment company Marathon Group (Marathon Group), the main shareholder of the major Russian pharmaceutical distributor SIA Group and the Mega Pharm pharmacy chain. He owes his meteoric career to the connections of his father, Semyon Vinokurov, who had been in the pharmaceutical business in Moscow for a long time, and to the support of his father-in-law, Sergei Lavrov. Has Russian and Israeli citizenship.

True, the spouses still live in Russia. At least that was the case before the sanctions. But considering that Catherine’s children by her husband have Israeli citizenship, and she herself has American and, possibly, Israeli citizenship, they can leave at any moment.
