    That's general Sergey Shoigu, the defense minister and his right hand man in the geopolitical struggle



    He is a native Siberian, a Tuvan: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tuvans

    Though, unlike most of his people (who are Buddhists), he is a believing Orthodox Christian, apparently, even displays it by crossing himself at the Spasskaya Tower gate of the Kremlin, which houses a sacred icon of Jesus, before he is driven through it to command the military parades on Red Square


    Very close with the Church, he is


    To be fair, he is HALF Tuvan (father is Tuvan, mom - Russian).

    He also enjoys painting, interestingly

    Rare pictures show Defence Minister relaxing with one of his many hobbies

    His younger daughter, Ksenia, is fucking gorgeous

    I think she is in showbiz, up and coming actress. No surprise there lol

    Older daughter, Yulia, holds a powerful position in the Ministry of Emergency Situations (they oversee rescue services, firefighters, that sort of thing)

    I believe she is a colonel now, at least. Many see her, potentially, as the first ever female Minister of Emergencies. Her success has nothing to do with her father, I am sure, especially as he commanded that Ministry before went back to the military to take over Defense lol

    And her husband, Shoigu's son in law, is Alexey Zakharov, the head prosecutor (like state attorney) for the Moscow region


    Oh, and Shoigu's sister, Larisa, is a member of the Duma (United Russia, of course lol)

    Bargaining out political advantages or financial rewards for herself in return for exclusive access to her brother? No! How dare you even suggest such a vile thing! lol

    Very powerful family.

    Their mansion, at Borvikha, an elite suburb in Moscow


    Shoigu is adored by the Tuvans, after all, he pretty much put this tiny nation of 300,000 or so people on the countrywide map, singlehandedly, he achieved heights no Tuvan could dream of before.

    His ancestral home in Tuva is now a museum carefully maintained by local cadets; they have his first dress uniform there, among other things


    Many Tuvans are proud of him as a military commander. Especially after successful operations such as Crimea lol

    They are, again, Buddhists, most of them, believe in reincarnation and such; and some believe Shoigu is the reincarnated Subutai, Genghiz Khan's military commander, who was also Tuvan, reportedly: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Subutai

    lol At the very least, many believe Subutai is a direct ancestor of the Shoigu clan... Wouldn't that be something? hehe

    Putin, meanwhile, has his own special relationship with Shoigu. For years now, he and Shoigu have gone on these summer trips together to Tuva, his homeland in Southern Siberia, including depicted in the OP pic this year. Shoigu is perhaps Putin's closest confidant, these days...

    Which explains the militarism and expansionism and whatnot...

    You can do whatever you want. There's always someone who tells you that you can't. Do it anyway.

    You know, now that you mention it, Putin's lack of pretense compared with 45 is kind of refreshing.
