In the declarations that she, as an official, has been submitting since 2012, she does not have a spouse and never had one. But children regularly appear there: in 2014. In 2016. And one more in 2018. Let’s dispel dirty speculation. Children, of course, are not Shoigu, but a person close to him. In 2020, Mediazon wrote that by comparing the declarations, they figured out who could be the father of Kitaeva’s children, and this is the Deputy Minister of Defense – Yuri Sadovenko.
We confirm it is. Three of her children, according to documents, have the surname Sadovenko. They did not register their marriage.
Kitaeva and Sadovenko met when she was a journalist and interviewed Shoigu. Sadovenko himself has been working with Shoigu since the mid-90s, almost 30 years. […] In personal conversations, Sadovenko calls Shoigu his second father and main mentor. But in general, Sadovenko VDVshnik, was born in Ukraine, in Zhytomyr, graduated from college in Ryazan and then served for only four years and immediately in the Ministry of Emergencies. […] Even less is known about Sadovenko than about Kitaeva. […] If you look for videos about the work of Colonel-General Sadovenko, it seems that all he is doing is presenting awards and diplomas. […]
Total what we have. A family of two Defense Ministry officials and their three children. Now let’s see how they live?
You don’t need to go far – there is Maria Kitaeva’s Instagram, where there are almost one and a half thousand photos, from which you can get a good idea of \u200b\u200bhow the general’s family lives.
Fashion shows and parties:
Foreign travel and entertainment:
Yachts and glamorous photo shoots:
Here on the hand of Maria Kitaeva the Breguet watch flaunts.
They cost $40,000, which is 3.6 million rubles at today’s exchange rate.
Here rolex for $30,000, or 2.7 million rubles.
In winter, she goes snowboarding in Courchevel.
In summer resting on the sea in Italy.
Well, in the off-season, of course, Dubai.
Well, a pinch of patriotism – enthusiasm for the main temple of the armed forces (this is the one with Hitler’s cap and Putin’s mosaic).
On Navy Day, they are all in the costume of sailors and sailors.
On the Day of the Airborne Troops – in vests.
And, of course, the parade. The mother general dresses her young children in Soviet uniforms, caps with a hammer and sickle, we can repeat it, and so on. […]
Kitaeva’s Instagram has a lot of photos of Shoigu, Putin, some laudatory posts about them, congratulations and so on. But there is not a single picture, in fact, of Deputy Minister Sadovenko, the father of her children.
It is very good that we have at our disposal a complete archive of the mail of Major General Maria Kitaeva for 17 years. There we will find photographs, documents, and much more details about how those who right now send you, your acquaintances, friends and relatives to kill and die in the trenches in Ukraine live.
Here is the bill for renting a villa for a month in 2019 in the famous Italian resort of Forte dei Marmi. 32 thousand euros, almost 2.5 million rubles at the exchange rate at that time.
We find images of this villa on the Internet, we compare it with Kitaeva’s Instagram. On video with son we see a dark green curtain, we look at the photo of the villa – it matches.
The window with the iron grate and the vase on the chain also match.
And here is another photo from there, it was taken on this rounded staircase.
They generally go to rest in Forte dei Marmi almost every summer. We feel like deja vu! Six months ago, we published an investigation about another Deputy Minister of Defense – Timur Ivanov and his wife Svetlana Maniovich. And it was the same there, every summer they have St. Tropez.
And the family of this deputy minister of defense, whose wife is not just a socialite, but also a major general herself, is Forte dei Marmi. But we will return to Timur Ivanov, read, as they say, to the end, there will be many surprises.
We found a whole collection of air tickets from Moscow to Pisa (this is the nearest airport to Forte dei Marmi) […]
In the summer of 2015, Shoigu’s adviser did not go to the annexed Alushta, but again to Italy, also stopping by Amsterdam.
July 2016 and August 2017 – Italy again.
In the spring of 2018 again.
And in 2019.
But it’s summer vacation. In winter they have a glorious tradition of going to Vienna. Walk through the Christmas markets. What do the Vologda and Kostroma fairs do not suit you, I would like to ask? You dress your children in Soviet uniforms, you need to be more patriotic, or something.
They went to Vienna in May 2011.
Then in December 2016.
And twice in 2019, in May and December.
Same with Dubai: two trips in 2021.
And also in autumn 2020 and 2019.
In 2018, Kitaeva, her two children and their nanny spent a month at the five-star Sofitel The Palm Dubai.
It cost Kitaeva 1.5 million rubles.
Well, there is another trip, special. Everyone remembers that day, where they were and what they did. February 24, 2022 […].
Advisor to Shoigu with the children of the Deputy Minister of Defense … in London. She flew there to rest and did not consider it necessary to interrupt her vacation. After all, on February 26, tickets for the musical Mary Poppins were bought from her. Don’t skip it.
For other expenses: this is an extract from an additional card to the account of Deputy Defense Minister Sadovenko at VTB.
Maria Kitaeva has a separate card for spending “for pins”.
Maria goes to the Central Department Store, leaves almost 700,000 rubles there in one day. Then a week later again at the Central Department Store – another two hundred thousand almost, almost a million a month. And then once – in the bank branch someone comes and puts 900,000 into her account. Officials? Are you required to disclose income? Accountable for every penny? But no, they didn’t hear anything like that.
We must make a reservation so that we are not later accused of bias, the adviser Shoigu Kitaeva has a fairly wealthy brother – Denis Kitaev.
Together with a partner, he has a development business in Moscow. Build luxury residential complexes. But here, as always, there is one “but”. Big. And this is the mother of Denis and Maria Kitaeva. Her name is Nina Kitaeva.
Nina Kitaeva worked for many years as a deputy to the permanent head of the Moscow construction complex, Vladimir Resin (now he is a State Duma deputy). He himself is her called his right hand. Not a single Moscow construction site passed by it. From the construction of housing for those on the waiting list and the reconstruction of cultural facilities to the creation of the general plan of Moscow, Nina Kitaeva was responsible for all this for many years.
Judging by the photographs and celebrations of her birthdays, there is no official or developer in Moscow with whom Ninochka (as they call her) is not on a short footing.
Here is a magazine that was once prepared for a birthday girl.
Here are the rules of life, like “money loves silence” and “you can’t forbid living beautifully.”
And even gossip.
Here Kitaeva dances with one of the largest Moscow developers – Chigirinsky.

With Winner and Kabaeva.
WITH Zurab Tsereteli.

hugs Kobzon. […]
In general, everyone loves Ninochka Kitaeva, she is the real head of the family. And what Kitaeva herself loves is indicated in another part of the magazine. There are some household items, a Chanel bag, a Franck Muller watch and the Kitaevs’ estate.
Well, of course, what kind of official without his own estate. Of course, located on Rublyovka. Here house 1 100 square meters and the area under it is almost half a hectare.
Thanks to such an active mother-builder, the Kitaev family perfectly got hold of Moscow real estate. A huge apartment on the Arbat, apparently from the Moscow City Hall.
Two large neighboring apartments in Khamovniki with a total area of 360 square meters.
In the 3rd Samotechny lane they have 223 square meters. On Plyushchikha apartments are almost 300 square meters.
And little things here and there. Only this, far from complete list of residential real estate is worth almost two billion rubles. Here is the official family.
Celebrating birthdays on a grand scale is generally a family tradition of the Kitaevs. On 30th birthday of Maria Kitaeva almost 100 people, only high society.
You might even think that this is not a birthday, but a solemn congress of the heroes of our investigations. At the first table, Shoigu’s deputies and her former boss, head of the All-Russian State Television and Radio Broadcasting Company, Oleg Dobrodeev. At the next table Dmitry Peskov with the parents of the birthday girl, then the family of the Moscow developer Chigirinsky, Resin’s successor Marat Khusnullinpropagandists Solovyov and Brilev.
Also in the hall is a family friend Valentin Gaft, singer Zemfira, Ksenia Shoigu and Timur Ivanov, apparently with his wife Maniovich.
There is also a separate episode, a small one, but it simply cannot be ignored. In July 2016, Maria Kitaeva was, of course, in Forte dei Marmi (no surprises here). Maria was pregnant with her second daughter, in the seventh month, and something went wrong with her health and premature birth began.
She was taken to an Italian hospital, but they quickly decided that they still needed to be transported to Moscow. Maybe they didn’t want the Deputy Minister of Defense in Italy to have a child, after all, it was already after the annexation of Crimea, after the downed Boeing; Sadovenko was not allowed to travel abroad, most likely.
So, it was necessary to take Maria to Moscow by a private medical plane. From the letter we learn that Sadovenko himself and his godfather were involved in the organization and search for the board.
The godfather, judging by the photo from the christening, is Timur Ivanov.
But you know who paid for a private plane for the child of the Deputy Minister of Defense and his wife, adviser Shoigu? Evgeny Prigozhin.
The situation is really dangerous, a huge risk for mother and child, and here, consider that Prigogine directly saved their lives, perhaps. To the question of who owes whom.
I will tell you that Yuri has the apparatus
The kind that makes the Ministry shudder…
That apparatus is comparable to a typhoon, with a storm
Leaving a mark in the liver and in the heart!
Yes, there is a heart! Soapy ass forever..
The Minister sets new tasks..
Forget about holidays and families.
This is a piece from the scenario of the anniversary of Yuri Sadovenko, he turned 45 years old, and was celebrated on a grand scale. In the mail, Maria Kitaeva has many letters that will allow us to imagine how the generals are having fun in the Ministry of Defense. For example, special file with the biography of the deputy minister with entertaining facts about the birthday boy: that he loves sandwiches with sausage and sausages, loves to sing “White Swan on the Pond” and “Blue splashed” in karaoke. But what he does not like: skinny pants and shorts. A man can’t wear these! And women should have long hair.
Very high-ranking guests are present at the celebration. Table number 1: the hero of the day Sadovenko, Kitaev, with them Sergei Shoigu and his daughter Ksenia, Valery Gerasimov, Deputy Ministers Tsalikov and the head of the presidential administration Vaino.
At table number 5: Putin’s former bodyguard, and now the governor of the Tula region Dyumin, deputy director of the FSO Klimentyev. At the next table, unexpectedly 26-year-old at that time, Igor Chaika.
Everyone takes turns performing, during the breaks the entertainer reads poetry, and Levon Oganezov accompanies. The highlight of the program is the musical number of the show-boy group Singing Thrushes. Further quote: “The group performs a popular repertoire with elements of defiant body movements and pantomime.”
The composition of the show-boy group “Singing Thrushes” is Timur Ivanov, well known to us, his deputy, head of the Department of Property Relations of the Ministry of Defense Dmitry Kurakinand his Deputy Deputy – Daniil Sukhanov.
Kurakin, by the way, is now in jail, and Sukhanov is wanted. Both of them are defendants in a criminal case on fraud with military property.
Well, by the third thrush, Timur Ivanov, eight years later, his wife, Maria Kitaeva, will leave Deputy Minister Sadovenko.
Please forgive me for such a drama in the spirit of “House 2”, believe me, we ourselves were surprised. But such a busy life in the Ministry of Defense. For those who are confused: there is a deputy of the Ministry of Defense, Colonel-General Sadovenko. He was de facto married to an adviser to the Minister of Defense, Major General Kitaeva. They had three children.
And then, quite recently, apparently, she went to another deputy minister of defense, Timur Ivanov, who less than a year ago divorced socialite Svetlana Maniovich.
Here are some photos that leave no doubt.
Joint recreation, ski trips. […]
Some pictures are just confusingly similar to what we showed you in the last investigation about Ivanov and Maniovich. The same glamorous parties and clubs.
The same handkerchiefs from Pavlopasad.
And the same family photo shoots.
Such a Santa Barbara. But in this picture, Kitaeva even has a ring – perhaps it is worth congratulating the young.
For the new year, Kitaeva ordered a surprise for her lover – she bought pajamas with the initials on the collar – MK (Maria Kitaeva) and TI (Timur Ivanov).
At the beginning of November 2022, Kitaeva orders joint business cards with Ivanov.
It is written in golden capital letters: “With best wishes, Timur and Maria”, now they give gifts together.
It’s all rather reckless. Less than a month earlier, Timur Ivanov had been sanctioned. And Mary, something tells us, still really wants to go to Europe.
This year, she is applying for Hungarian Schengen visas for her entire family.
They buy a set of tickets to Budapest – Maria Kitaeva, her mother, all three children. Almost half a million rubles.
And they book two two-room suites for a week at this beautiful hotel in the center of Budapest. It costs about 650 thousand.
Now Kitaeva is no longer officially employed in the Ministry of Defense, she went to work as a PR adviser to the Tretyakov Gallery, but nevertheless she decides to play it safe: in the questionnaire she writes that it is not she who pays for this trip and all trips to Europe in the next five years, but her – mother Nina Kitaeva.
Maria Kitaeva has rather big risks – she is already included in the Canadian sanctions. Now, when it became clear that she had a new family with Deputy Minister of Defense Ivanov (who is engaged in construction in the occupied territories), entry into Europe should have been closed to her in a good way.
But, unfortunately, while she, a major general, a person who has worked in the Ministry of Defense for ten years, nothing prevents her from resting in Europe. Unlike ordinary Russians. In April of this year, after a transplant in Istanbul, she flew to Budapest.
But apparently, she jumped into Italy. Here is a check from either an Italian gallery, or from a store where a purchase of 17,000 euros, or 1.7 million rubles, was paid with Kitaeva’s card. […]
You will not see on her instagram a hint that something is wrong. For them, life goes on – traveling, partying and shopping abroad. Europe, unfortunately, accepts them with open arms. […]
