A millionaire businessman has revealed his fight to bring his daughters back to the UK after his “manipulative and arrogant” ex-wife took them on holiday and never came back.
Ganna Tigipko, 34, flew her children to Ukraine in July last year has refused to bring them back.
A dual Ukrainian-British citizen, Ms Tigipko is the daughter of politician Sergiy Tigipko, 59, who served as Ukraine’s vice prime minister from 2010 to 2012.
Her flouting of a High Court order which prevented her from leaving the country with the girls was described as a “furtive flit” and a “gross act of defiance” by a judge.
Ms Tigipko’s former husband is a Russian businessman living in London who cannot be named to protect his daughters’ identities.
Ah, yes. The daughters will have his name, won’t they? Not much of a disguise of their identity, it has to be said….
