Early LifeEdit

Zlata Ostrovsky was born and raised in the country of Georgia and is the only sibling to Riva. During her life, she was heavily put down by her family for her choices, including being pulled away from her daughter Olga.

She primarily made her career through publishing a book titled The Kremlin Konnection.[2]


On tour for her book, Zlata announced her presence to her sister Riva and daughter Olga Ostrovsky. Craddling grandson Bogdan, she requested to know if there was anything she could help with in terms of family businesses before pulling her daughter aside to speak alone. Learning of Riva's manipulation of Olga, she joined her in conversing with Desna Simms.[2]

Daughter's MarriageEdit

In order to get the Husser's performing the work she needs to execute her vision, Zlata forced Roller to marry her daughter Olga at gunpoint. She believes now that the Husser's are family they will fall in line.
