Ekaterina Besikievna Kotrikadze (Georgian: ეკატერინე კოტრიკაძე; Russian: Екатерина Бесикиевна Котрикадзе; born 23 March 1984) is a Georgian-Russian journalist and media manager, host of the Dozhd TV channel and the former head of the information service of the RTVI TV channel.[1]

After having criticized the Russian president Vladimir Putin for having started the Russian invasion of Ukraine, she moved to Latvia for security reasons. [2]

Early life

Ekaterina Kotrikadze was born in Tbilisi, Georgian Soviet Socialist Republic. In 2005 she graduated with honours from the Faculty of Journalism of Moscow State University.[3]

Her mother died in the explosion of house number 19 on Guryanov Street in Moscow in 1999; their apartment was above the epicenter of the explosion.[4][5]


From 2003 to 2005, Ekaterina worked on the Dangerous Zone (Russian: Опасная зона) programme on the TVC channel.[6]

In 2006 she returned to Georgia.[7] The first place of work in Georgia was the Alania TV channel, where Kotrikadze started from the position of an ordinary reporter, having worked for three years. At the same time, in 2008, she began cooperation on the RTVI channel as a correspondent for Georgia.[6] In 2009 she began working for the Russian radio station Echo of Moscow.[8]

In October 2009, she became one of the founders of the Russian-language television channel the First Informational Caucasian [Wikidata] (FIC), which was created in Georgia. Ekaterina headed the information service and in 2011 she took the position of general director,[9] in 2012 – chief editor of the information service.[10][11]

In 2012, after the closure of the FIC channel,[12] she accepted RTVi's invitation to become head of the information service and form the channel's editorial policy. In 2016, after Alexey Pivovarov joined the channel as general producer and editor-in-chief, she was appointed deputy editor-in-chief.

In February 2018, she accused Leonid Slutsky, a member of the Russian State Duma from the Liberal Democratic Party, of sexual harassment.[13]

In April 2019, she was invited as a speaker on the topic of the safety of journalists at the international journalism festival in Perugia, Italy.[1]

In June 2020, she went on maternity leave,[14] and later left RTVi.

Since September 2020, she has been a host of the Dozhd TV channel.[15]

Personal life

Ekaterina Kotrikadze's first husband was Egor Kuroptev. Her second husband was Alexey Zyunkin and the couple have a son, David.[6]

In 2019, she married Russian journalist Tikhon Dzyadko.[6]
