And she is also Karjakin's girlfirend.

  Troller: Kateryna has 4/5 and a TPR of 2662 in the Chigorin Memorial right now. Not only the man in the household knows how to move them pieces I guess.
Apr-20-13  Interbond: Is she related to Olga Dolzhikova Olga Dolzhikova ?

Apparently not.

Jul-19-15  quamvis: At 26 years old, Kateryna Dolzhykova seems to have disappeared from the chess world, or she is still playing? I wonder if it were due to her possibly too early marriage at 20 year old to a 19 year old man. Given that her former husband changed citizenship and chess federation from Ukrainian to Russian, and ... changed wife to be married with a Russian woman also, I wonder if Dolzhykova still lives in Crimea now? Does she play for Ukraine federation or Russian Federation since Russia owns Crimea now?
Jul-19-15  Caissanist: She hasn't disappeared, her FIDE page shows that she's quite active, still playing in and representing Ukraine. She lost a lot of rating points around the time of her divorce (and, perhaps not coincidentally, Russia's occupation of Crimea), she has gotten many of them back recently.
Aug-20-23  whiteshark: <Kateryna Dolzhykova wins German Women's Chess Championship 2023> Congrats!
