He was elected in the 2015 presidential election, which he won against Andrei Gomitriev, while Barbara Talarova became the Prime Minister of Ceresnia after she won against Petr Užbankov.

His father was employed as a automobile manufacturing factory worker and his mother was a housewife, taking care of their farm. When Vostrikov was aged two, his parents moved to Hranov to lead a better, city life there. He was raised there, and lived there for the major part of his childhood. He attended Anatol Hermenov High School, Hranov, a school in Ceresnia with one of the highest rankable levels.
