Sergey Shoygu



Sergey Kuzhugetovich Shoygu (born 21 May 1955) is a Russian politician who has served in the Government of Russia as Minister of Defence since 2012.

Previously, Shoygu was Minister of Emergency Situations from 1991 to 2012, and briefly served as Governor of Moscow Oblast in 2012. Shoygu holds the military rank of General of the Army. Shoygu is also the President of the International Sport Federation of Firefighters and Rescuers.

Opposition investigators discovered a corruption scandal where Sergey was the prime suspect. According to the opposition, the hard line general used his glamorous daughter in a way to hide his mansion in Moscow. Shoygu’s year salary is around $120,000 per year, but he somehow managed to buy a $16 million luxury mansion in Moscow. The opposition investigators claim that Shoygu tried to hide the property by declaring he purchased it using family income, and registering to his daughter Ksenia.
