    Hi, Alexander! With thanks to Mark, and adding to what he said...

    Vladimir Putin's daughter

    Vladimir Putin = one individual. Correct use of possessive.

    Maria Sharapova's neighbors

    Maria Sharapova = one individual. Correct use of possessive.

    volleyball player's children

    Do you mean "a volleyball player"... i.e. singular, although you may
    be thinking of a hypothetical individual as representative of a larger group...
    or do you mean "volleyball players *in general*" (plural). This is significant
    because the correct placement of the apostrophe depends on your answer.... ;-)
