The Riches of Mariya Putina

How rich is Mariya Putina? As of mid-2019, sources inform us of a net worth that is over $3.5 million, earned partly through success in her numerous endeavors, but the majority suspected of coming from her father who many believe is one of the richest men in the world. Several reports speculate that he has net worth in the billions, and could even be richer than current richest man in the world Jeff Bezos. As she continues her endeavors, it is expected that her wealth will also continue to increase.

Early Life

A lot of the details about Mariya’s life are scattered due to numerous sources reporting different things about her. She grew up with a younger sister who would later become an acrobat.

Mariya Putina

At a young age, she gained the nickname Masha which was given to her by friends and family. In 1996, her family moved to Moscow, where she attended secondary schools located in Troparyovo-Nikulino. However, she was taken out of those schools after Putin became president, and was subsequently home-schooled. She then enrolled at Moscow State University in 2006 to study Fundamental Medicine.

Education and Career

Moscow State University is a coeducational public research university and was previously known as Lomonosov University in1940. It houses the tallest educational building in the world and the current rector of the school is Viktor Sadovin. It is the highest ranking Russian educational institution and is known as the most prestigious university in Russia – to protect her identity, she went under the name Vorontsov.

She also enrolled at St. Petersburg State University to complete a degree in international economics; the school is known for being one of the oldest and largest universities in Russia. It was founded in 1724 and had a strong focus on science, engineering, and humanities, with the goal of helping its graduates gain skills to help contribute to the success of Russia. It was previously known as Leningrad State University during the Soviet period. Other sources state that she also took up education at the State Linguistic University though it has never been confirmed.

After completing her degree, it is said that she became involved in the medical field of endocrinology, and pursued a PhD at a health ministry research center. She is said to have been guided by academic Ivan Dedov, who would later become the president of the Russian Academy of Medical Sciences.

Father – Vladimir Putin

Vladimir Putin is a former intelligence officer who is now the President of Russia, a position he’s held since 2012. He also held the position from 2000 to 2008, and then served as the Prime Minister of Russia in between his presidential terms. Prior to his career in politics, he was a foreign intelligence officer for the KGB for 16 years, rising to the rank of Lieutenant Colonel of the organization before resigning in 1991 to enter the field of politics.

His first presidency saw the rise of the Russian economy for eight straight years, due to the commodities boom and the recovery from the post-Communist depression. He helped implement prudent fiscal and economic policies. His 2012 win led to some problems with the economy due to their annexation of Crimea and military intervention in Eastern Ukraine. Despite all of his achievements, the country has scored poorly in Transparency International’s Corruption Perceptions Index. While the country presents itself as a democracy, many experts don’t believe it is, due to the lack of press freedom and free and fair elections. He’s also been the subject of alleged political crimes and accusations of human rights abuse.

Personal Life

For her personal life, it is known that Mariya married her longtime Dutch boyfriend Jorrit Faassen, though a lot of it is speculation as the marriage has never been confirmed by major publications. The couple are said to have a daughter and that her husband works at the Russian state-controlled gas company called Gazprom, which is partially owned by Mariya’s father. The family is said to reside in an upscale village of Voorschoten located in South Holland.

Mariya Putina

She previously owned a penthouse in Voorschoten which was sold in 2017 for $3 million; this was due to controversy with the location, as it has been a place of anti-Putin demonstrations. She gained a lot of negative attention after the shooting down of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 over the battlefields of eastern Ukraine; all 298 people aboard were killed and the Russian government was blamed for the blast. Her presence during mourning events triggered outrage, and there were even protests outside her residence – the mayor of Hilversum even proposed through a radio interview that she should be deported from the country. The issue did not escalate further, and she continued on with her life. Putin has spoken well of his children, stating that both of them have made him very proud.
