The Ministry of the Interior of Lithuania has decided to deprive Adolfos Kaminskas of the citizenship of the Republic of Lithuania. Kaminskas is married to Elena Kaminskas (Shebunova), the mother of the children of Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu.
Earlier, the Lithuanian Department of Migration suggested that the Ministry of Internal Affairs deprive Kaminskas of citizenship, since it turned out that he has Russian citizenship, which is confirmed by an extract from the register of legal entities of the Russian Federation, the department claims. At the same time, as the department points out, Kaminskas "does not have the right to multiple citizenship."
Data obtained by The Insider shows that Kaminskas' Russian passport is first mentioned in the Russian registry in April 2022.
A few years ago, Kaminskas, the owner of a small business selling mopeds, began to grow rich rapidly and became the beneficiary of several Lithuanian enterprises in different parts of Vilnius, owning assets worth about 20 million euros. His sudden enrichment coincided with his marriage to Elena Shebunova, the mother of Sergei Shoigu's illegitimate children, who earned billions on contracts from the Ministry of Emergency Situations and the Ministry of Defense.

In early December, the Lithuanian media reported that Elena Kaminskas (Shebunova) herself was banned from entering Lithuania for five years, and to the Schengen countries for three years, and she was also deprived of her Lithuanian residence permit.
