The illegitimate daughter of Sergei Shoigu is a citizen of Lithuania, LRT reports in its investigation. She was granted citizenship in 2019 after the former mistress of the Russian Defense Minister, the mother of his children, Elena Kaminskas (Shebunova), married Lithuanian Adolfas Kaminskas. He recognized her as his daughter and submitted an application to the Lithuanian Migration Department.
As The Insider previously wrote, Shebunova and Shoigu have two illegitimate children, Daria and Danila. Shebunova herself, a Russian citizen, received a Lithuanian residence permit in 2017, but she lost it in the summer of 2022 and is now suing the Lithuanian authorities. She appealed against the decision to the Migration Department, but the consideration of the case in the Vilnius District Administrative Court has not yet been scheduled. The State Security Department told the LRT publication that it had submitted to the Migration Department an opinion on the undesirability of the presence of Elena Kaminskas in the Republic of Lithuania, as she could pose a threat to the national security of the state due to ties with Russian subjects.
Over the past two years, Elena Shebunova left Lithuania at least twice for more than 6 months, and in August of this year, she and her husband Adolfas Kaminskas announced their departure from Lithuania to the Russian Federation, the authors of the investigation write. Adolfas Kaminskas received a Russian passport in the spring of 2022. This is evidenced by an entry in the Unified State Register of Legal Entities stating that at the end of April, the Lithuanian company A.E. Invest LLC belongs not to a foreigner, but to a person with Russian citizenship.
Earlier, The Insider found out that Adolfas Kaminskas was a modest entrepreneur before marrying Shebunova, his company was engaged in the sale of mopeds and spare parts for them. After his marriage, he became fantastically wealthy, eventually becoming the beneficiary of several Lithuanian businesses that own assets worth about 20 million euros in several parts of the Lithuanian capital.
