Gregori Vostrikov (born May 9, 1967) is a Ceresnian politician and lawyer who has served as the third President of Lipnitia since 2016. 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. He is also Chairman of the now-ruling Left party since its founding in 2013.
Vostrikov succeeded long-time President of Ceresnia, de jure democratic head of state, de facto dictator, Andrei Rogorov, who was ousted for gross violations of human rights during his office term.
Vostrikov was born at his parents' farm in Avov in the Hranov Oblast of Ceresnia on 13 August 1967. He is the son of Branislav and Kristina Vostrikov. 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.
Vostrikov studied law in the University of Hranov, yet then moved on to politics after he left. He was interested in the center-left, and despised the left-wing politics used in the meantime in the Ceresnian People's Republic.
