The children of Russian officials, siloviki (employees of the military and other power structures) and deputies, despite the war and the sanctions imposed on their parents, go on vacation abroad, including to the countries of NATO and the European Union. Dubai, Bali, the Maldives and the Seychelles are also among the popular holiday destinations for travelers whose fathers are at war with Ukraine.
This is what The Insider writes. The publication based its publication on a survey of social networks.
Thus, the daughter of the head of the Foreign Intelligence Service Sergei Naryshkin, Veronika, visited the Seychelles and Turkey since the beginning of the war. Before the New Year, she flew to Bali, and spent the first days of 2023 in Dubai. Despite the fact that the Instagram of Veronika Naryshkina herself is closed, the publication was able to find out by studying the posts of her close friend, with whom they travel together.
The Insider separately notes that Turkey is a member of NATO, and Naryshkin himself stated that this bloc is “waging a hybrid war against both Russia and our ally, the Republic of Belarus.” It was in the summer – about the same time Veronika Naryshkina was on vacation in Turkey.
The daughter-in-law of the Deputy Speaker of the State Duma Alexander Zhukov, Tatyana, was on vacation in September on the island of Mykonos in Greece, which is also part of NATO, The Insider writes. She celebrated the New Year in Bali.
The daughter-in-law of the Chairman of the Federation Council Valentina Matviyenko, Yulia, flew from Russia for the New Year holidays. She spends them in the Maldives – at the Waldorf Astoria Maldives Ithaafushi hotel, the night in which, the publication notes, costs over three thousand euros.
The Insider also confirmed the information that the daughter of the Minister of Defense Ksenia Shoigu spent the New Year holidays in Dubai – the publication writes that the photo with her was published by her husband, the blogger Alexei Stolyarov.

Attention to the vacation of Ksenia Shoigu was drawn the day before when photos from Dubai appeared on Instagram of the deputy of the Legislative Assembly of the Vologda region Denis Dolzhenko: in one of them he is with the daughter of the head of the Ministry of Defense. The deputy was criticized by the governor of the Vologda region Oleg Kuvshinnikov and the secretary of the General Council of United Russia Andrei Turchak for the holiday abroad.
The party excluded Dolzhenko from the list of official supporters for “discrediting actions” (he is not a member). At the same time, United Russia and the authorities did not comment on the behavior of Ksenia Shoigu.
