Sanctions against Putin’s daughters have been imposed by Canada.

On Tuesday, Canada announced penalties against 14 Russian government officials, including President Vladimir Putin’s two daughters.

In a statement, Canada’s Foreign Affairs Minister Mélanie Joly stated that they would be held accountable for their crimes.

“In coordination with our partners, we will continue to inflict heavy costs on the Russian regime, and we will relentlessly pursue accountability for their acts,” he said. As said by Joly.

The economic impact of the Russia-Ukraine war has already been felt by Putin’s daughters, Maria Putina and Katerina Tikhonova.

Few facts about the two are known since Putin has kept them out of the public eye for security reasons.

Lyudmila Putina, their mother, was married to President Vladimir Putin until their divorce in 2013.

Katerina works on publicly-funded projects at Moscow State University and heads an artificial intelligence institute, while Maria runs Russia’s state-funded program that works on genetic programs regulated by the Kremlin.

Katerina also supports the Russian defense industry, according to the US Treasury Department.

Maria was not widely recognized to be Putin’s daughter until 2015, when blogger Oleg Kashin revealed the information, despite the fact that her surname is derived from her grandmother.

Jorrit Joost Faassen, a Dutch businessman, is said to be her husband.

Katerina married Kirill Shamalov, a Russian billionaire, in 2013, but the couple separated in 2018.
