Putin's alleged daughter co-authors two university textbooks
One of the special courses has the same name that her dissertation had. Katerina Tikhonova defended her thesis five years after the textbook had been published.
Katerina Tikhonova, who is referred to as the daughter of Russian President Vladimir Putin, co-authored two special courses for students of Moscow State University, Open Media reports.
According to the university’s Istina database, Tikhonova is among the authors of the book titled Testing the Quality of Rapprochement between an Astronaut’s Rescue Device and the International Space Station and Special Practicum on Theoretical and Applied Mechanics. The special practicum is an in-depth practical course for senior students of natural sciences at Moscow State University.
First year students focus on modeling the behavior of an astronaut in orbit "with the worst behavior of the initial and constant disturbances affecting them." “Based on the test results, recommendations are made for the astronaut’s actions in orbit and any need for additional training is revealed,” the special practicum description says.
There is no information about the Special Practicum on Theoretical and Applied Mechanics on the Istina website and the textbook is not downloadable.
It is noted that Testing the Quality of Rapprochement between an Astronaut’s Rescue Device and the International Space Station shares the title with Tikhonova’s dissertation, which she defended in the spring of 2019, while the textbook was released back in 2014. Vladimir Alexandrov, Tikhonova’s scientific advisor, co-authored both special courses.
