Ok, so she is 1/2 Russian and Russian is her native language. Thanks.
|Jul-22-14|| ||alexmagnus: Half Russian, but her last name (now matter how written :)) is clearly Ukrainian.|
|Jul-22-14|| ||notyetagm: Kateryna Lahno|
<alexmagnus: Half Russian, but her last name (now matter how written :)) is clearly Ukrainian.>
Yes, her last name does not end in -nova, -seva, or -nina.
|Jul-29-14|| ||GumboGambit: With shifting borders, countries struggling to break free from Soviet rule, and new countries popping up (primarily in the former Yuogoslavia), it is very common for current Eastern Europeans to have 'mixed' heritage, where both sides have tense relations. (Croat-Serb, Russia-anyone). |
It may not be the same as jumping between Israel and Palestine, but going from Ukraine to Russia is going to leave harsh feelings, especially at this point in history.

Well, the current war in Ukraine has clearly worsened the matters between Russia and Ukraine, in both directions. I spent my childhood between 6 and 15 is what is currently the war region (Mariupol it was, to be exact), and have many schholfriends from the region (incuding one living directly on the line of the front in Donetsk). Most have flown, but the directions to <where> they flee shows a lot about who they support. Pro-Westerners tend to flee inside Ukraine (although Russia is closer than any non-fought or not-ponentially-fought part of Ukraine), pro-Russians go to Russia. Some are reluctant to flee at all, fearing revenge from whoever wins the war if they end up fleeing in the "wrong" direction. The discussions aboze the war itself have already broken some families. The longer the war is lasting, the more Russians and Ukrainians start hating each other instead of each other's war-driven governemnts. It takes extreme courage to openly walk with a Russian flag in (the peaceful part of) Ukraine or with the Ukrainian flag in Russia.

|Dec-27-17|| ||eternaloptimist: Happy Birthday to the beautiful & brainy Kateryna Lahno!|
|Nov-16-18|| ||JimNorCal: Seems like other sites, such as Chess24, call her Lagno. Should CG consider changing the spelling?|
|Nov-16-18|| ||zanzibar: <<JNC> Should CG consider changing the spelling?> yes.|
|Dec-30-18|| ||tigreton: Congratulations, Kateryna!|
|Dec-30-18|| ||sonia91: Congratulations on winning the King Salman Blitz World Championship (Women) (2018)!|
Just as her childhood friend Sergey Karjakin two years ago, after finishing as runner-up in the classical world championship, she won the blitz championship.
|Dec-31-18|| ||BUNA: Maybe it's time to fix her biography a little bit? |
On official documents of FIDE (https://ratings.fide.com/top.phtml?...) her name is now transliterated as Lagno.
She isn't married to Robert Fontaine anymore. Instead she's living with Alexander Grischuk, with whom she has two daughters.
|Dec-31-18|| ||zanzibar: <BUNA> I'm not too sure about the last paragraph in your post.|
I agree with the first two though.
|Jan-27-19|| ||wordfunph: good luck, Kateryna!|
|Jan-27-19|| ||torrefan: Kaya mo yan Katreyona!|
|Jun-06-19|| ||fabelhaft: <she's living with Alexander Grischuk, with whom she has two daughters>|
That might be true, they have been very silent about these matters though. Almost all Internet sources list Grischuk and Zhukova as married and none of them mention Grischuk and Lagno in any connection.
If Grischuk and Lagno have two children it can’t be an entirely new thing either, I recollect some interview from five years ago or so, where Zhukova referred to Lagno as a ”parasite” (connected to her federation switch to Russia), and a World Blitz Championship game from around the same time between Lagno and Grischuk, which was drawn.
Lagno confirmed that she has four children. Can’t be easy to keep playing top chess with four young kids, she is only 29 herself even if it feels as if she has been playing for ages.
|Jun-06-19|| ||fabelhaft: Grischuk & Lagno has to be the strongest chess couple ever, being #6 and #5 on the respective rating lists. Zhukova never reached 2500 and is down to the lower 2300s nowadays. Ivanchuk & Galliamova come close, but when Galliamova peaked they had already been separated for a few years.|
|Jun-06-19|| ||Tabanus: <BUNA: Maybe it's time to fix her biography a little bit?> Yes, will you volunteer? There's no <twinlark> around to do it any more. No Americans will do it eiher, probably because they've forgot about the good reasons to work for free. https://www.moneycrashers.com/reaso...|
|Jun-10-19|| ||BUNA: <Tabanus>I would edit the bio "when the time comes". But until now I haven't seen any "official" statements about Kateryna Lagno's personal matters.
So I've been basically spreading rumors. ;)
Let's just wait for some more time.
|Sep-02-19|| ||virginmind: Just found from another source that she is married with Grischuk, and I was sure that it was an error, as I knew for quite some time that Grischuk's wife was (and thought it still is) Natalia Zhukova. Then I found a couple of confirmations, including this one here. Wow! I hope I don't harm some feelings, but I somehow feel better. And wish them all the best together!|
|Sep-15-19|| ||virginmind: Sorry, by "married" I meant being a couple (they also have two children), I don't know if they are formally married or not.|
