It was only after the end of the term of Lithuanian President Dalia Grybauskaitė (she merged to become Grybauskaite) that a small part of her real biography came to light. It is ironic that the great Russophobe, who everywhere declares her hatred of everything Russian, is herself a true Slavic Russian by origin.

Dalia’s parents are true Lithuanian Russians – colonists. Her father is Polikarp Gzhyb, her mother is Vitalija Korsakova. Why her parents are Russian, and why Dalytė is ashamed of her true nationality, is a separate story.

“Dalia is, if not a Russian, then a true “chocholka” (Ukrainian),” Aldona Staugienė, a resident of the Kėdainiai district, told the editorial board. “Those colonists, including the Gžybovskis, were brought to the Akademija estate in the Kėdainiai district by the landowner Chrapovitskii after the 1868 uprising. These colonists were brought to Lithuania from the Kiev and Chernigov provinces in tsarist Russia. However, in our region, everyone called them “Gzhyb”, and nobody here knew any Grybauskas. I knew Dalia Gryzhybovka’s father, Polikarp, very well; he was a Stybov, who was later convicted by the Soviet authorities for robbery and served five years in prison.”

Mrs Aldona Staugienė herself was born in 1929, and knows all the people of the Academy in the Kėdainiai district very well.

“I remember Polikarpas, who, together with other Stribans, robbed our family of our grain,” she said, “When I read an article in ‘Laisvobozhdimass’ about how nobody still knows the real biography of Dalia Grybauskaitė, I couldn’t bear it and I phoned, because I know Polikarpas Gržybovski and his family well. I should write something about them, but I am too old to write anything, so I decided to call you.

My dad was a postman in Dotnuva, and my grandfather went to America during the First World War, but later returned to Lithuania and settled between Dotnuva and Akademija. My mother knew those Gzhibovskis well. Polikarp’s grandfather Vladimir was a short, crooked-legged man, and I think that Polikarp must have been baptised in the church of the Academy.

The Orthodox used to worship in this church, and in 1919 an agricultural technical college was opened in the Academy, and in 1924 the Academy was established here, so there were a lot of intellectuals settling in the town, and then there was a need for a Catholic church there. In 1925, the Orthodox abandoned the Academy church and it became a Catholic church. It was there that Polycarp was to be baptised. But they were called “Gzhyb” or “Gzhybowski”. However, at that time there were many non-nationals living in Lithuania – for example, there were Gudjuns in the village of Gudžiūnai. When I went to school, there were a lot of children in our class who had non-Lithuanian, but Lithuanianised surnames – there were a lot of Maksimovaičiai, Ivanovaičiai, Novikovaičiai, Aleksejovaičiai and so on.

However, Polikarp Gzyb was older than me, and I wasn’t in the same class with him, because I was born in 1929.After the war, Polikarp was a Strybi in the Dotnuva Strybyn. That stribyn was founded by local Stribs who were robbing people very badly. That stribyn was located in front of the church in Dotnuva, but later on a cultural house was opened in the place of the stribyn. And now there is a car service there. After the war, that was Polkarp’s workplace. That Pollikarp was a nasty Strybor, even though his father was Orthodox and Old Believer.

The woman told me that the local Russians who worked in the Dotnuva Stribyn were the Zdrozdovs.

“In the same gang of Stribs, there was also the same Polikarpas,” Staugienė said, “and that gang was rampaging in Dotnuva, even though Polikarpas was still a young boy. I was six years old at the time, but I remember how that gang robbed us of our grain.

I also know that when the intellectuals of the Academy were deported to Siberia, Polikarpas also took part in that deportation. He stood with an automatic rifle and made sure that those people did not escape. That Polikarpas is still standing in front of me now – why? Because he took our family’s bread.

I am laughing now – that girl (Dalia Grybauskaitė – Gžybovská) is now stroking the heads of children. And Polycarp did not stroke their heads. My dad worked as a postman, because there was also a post office in Dotnuva. Dad saved a lot of money back in Smetona’s time and bought 12 hectares of land. We had already managed to build a barn in 1938. It was a long barn, made of clay, and you could live in one end of it. There was wheat and rye in the barn, so the local Stribs came to us – Polikarpas and another Strib whose nickname was ‘Gužė’. When I was older, I found out that it was Sofija Butkevičiūtė from Dotnuva. They called her “Gūže” because she had big tits and a thick bottom.

She came wearing boots and a soldier’s skirt with a military belt, together with Polikarp, who was armed with a machine gun. The pair went around the farmhouses, and took the grain. I remember how my mother cried when those Stribs came into our barn, carrying the grain. It was the year after the war, everybody was starving, there were no collective farms yet, and our whole family was left with barley grain for the whole winter. They told my father to take the grain away, threatening to shoot him with a machine gun. So what was left to do?

I remember that Polikarpas well – a little boy, with curly hair. That girl was just crawling around in all the granaries, and he was just standing there, and he was a kind of girl’s guard. In those days, people in our region spoke only Polish, so they were called ‘Gzhibys’. My mother remembered that ‘Gzhyba’ very well, and she cursed him a lot. That is why I laugh when Grybauskaitė tells her biography that her father was a driver and that he was supposedly an exile. Many of the people in our country are dead, others did not live next door and do not know anything. I say, “I only knew Polikarpas and his grandfather”.

However, the Korsaks live in the nearby village of Voluisi, and were very red. Very nasty people. There were certainly those Korsakovs in our region. As far as I have heard, that Korsakov was in prison under the Germans or Smetona for being red.

“There is a Viktor Fyodorov in the Seimas,” said Aldona Staugienė, “he is the nephew of my classmate Lena Fyodorovaite. These Fiodorovas were brought to the Kėdainiai region also as colonists, but they got on very well with the Lithuanians. His grandfather’s surname was AVierka, and everyone called the children avierki. These Fiodorovs used to warn the local Lithuanians who they were taking to exile so that they could hide. My father was also a Sventik, he walked with a long beard, but they were friendly towards Lithuanians. And those horrible Stribs Zdrazdovs lived in a wooden house in front of the Dotnuva railway station. Before the war, there was a Jewish Goldbergs’ house there, and when the Germans shot them, the Zdrazdovs moved into that house. They were the most fierce Stribs in our region, and Polikarpas went with them.”

In the village of Valinava, between Dotnuva and Akademija, there were many Russian colonists who had been brought here after the 1886 uprising. ‘That is where the “Gzhybai” lived, and that is where Polikarpas originated from,’ Staugienė said, ‘There were some very good people among them who walked with the Lithuanians, and if the Stribs saw something, they would warn the families. One of those who warned them was Avierka, the grandfather of Viktoras Fiodorovas. I find it strange that nobody knows the biography of our President.”

Why the President’s father, Polycarp, was in prison for five years

“If my dad were alive, he would tell us everything, as if from a letter, about how those Stribs from our region ended up in prison,” said Aldona Staugienė, “Our neighbour was Jonas Gaventas, and his wife was Urbšis’ cousin Emilija. And the Urbšis family lived on the left side of the Nevėžis. These neighbours of ours, the Gaventas, had three girls, and the family had land and a shop in Smetona’s time, and my father got on very well with them. The Gavents were not sent to Siberia, and I think it was only because he paid tribute to the Stribs. My father, because he was literate, and when the kolkhozes were being set up, he was made to be the chief accountant of the kolkhoz ‘Šlapaberžė’. The Gavents also joined the kolkhoz, but the Stribs did not leave them alone. One day Jonas Gaventas received a letter saying that he had to deposit money in the manor chapel. Because they would take him to Siberia. Gaventas was already living hard with his three daughters, so he complained to the chairman of the collective farm. The chairman of the collective farm was a shoemaker called Jonas Bložė, who worked in Šlapabėržė. Although he was not a Red, he was forced to be chairman of the collective farm. It was Gavent who complained to Blože that the Stribs had written him a letter and told him to help with money. Gavent wondered what the Stribs wanted from him – he had already given all his land to the kolkhoz, he had three girls to feed, and he earned nothing on the collective farm. And here the Stribs are demanding tribute. And the chairman, Bložė, was not stupid, he decided to turn to the militia. The militiamen advised him to put down an empty envelope, and waited in ambush when the Stribs came for tribute.

And imagine – what did the militia catch? All the Dotnuva Stribs, that Zdrazdov gang and Polikarpas. Imagine what the order was like in Stalin’s time – all those looting Stribs were sent to prison for five years, no matter that they were Stribs. And the President made him an exile, even though his father was in prison for robbery. Of course, those Stribs could have been put in prison as whistleblowers.

As soon as the Stribs were put in jail, the whole district became peaceful, and their looting ended. Because all the Stribs were afraid of the chairman of the collective farm, Bložė, who might put them away. It was fortunate that in our district all the Reds were intelligent people, and very few people were sent to Siberia. Later, I found Polikarp’s tail where? I was working as a dairy farmer in Radviliškis, and I found out that after returning from prison Polikarpas had settled in a village near Šeduva. He worked as a collective farm foreman, and in Šeduva he married for the first time a local woman from Šeduva, who bore him a very stupid son, and later married Korsakov (Polikarp Gžyb married a real Lithuanian Russian woman, Vitalia Korsakov, and they had Dalytė).

Lithuanian law reliably protects knowledge of the criminal record of former NKVD agent Polikarp Grybauskas

It is true that children are not responsible for their parents. But it is also true that the biographies of the country’s top leaders must not conceal any important facts, let alone publish information that is not true to the truth. Photo. Polikarpas Grybauskas and Dalia Grybauskaitė has already written that her father, Polikarpas Grybauskas, is one of the enigmas of Lithuanian President Dalia Grybauskaitė (alongside the Vilnius Higher School of Party Studies, where, after March 11th, she and the Sąjūdis liberated the Vytis, the Pillars of Gediminas, the Tricolour and the National Song from the Underground). It is the right of every citizen to know as much as possible about their country’s leader, which is why at the beginning of the summer we published copies of the documents from the file kept in the Lithuanian Special Archive.

They show that the future President’s father, Polikarpas, went to the partisans in 1943 at the age of 15 to join the “Birutis-4” detachment, worked as a “militiaman” from 1944 to 1945, became an NKVD trainee in 1945 in Vilnius, and became a “commander of the detachment” in 1946, with a permit to carry the “Vintovka” No. One version claims that Polikarpas used this “vintovka” not to kill people, but to extinguish fires, because he served in the NKVD fire department. However, this is not the only version – after all, it is common knowledge that ignorance, or too little knowledge, breeds chimeras.Therefore, today we share what we have been able to learn about yet another side of Grybauskas’ rich biography. We have already written that among the many legends, the one that stands out in terms of sensitivity is the story published by the portal just before the President’s inauguration in 2009, that Polycarp was an exile who spent five years in the Krasnoyarsk region and was only able to return to his homeland after the death of Stalin.

Unfortunately, instead of a memoir of this exile, has been informed that the President’s father was sent to Krasnoyarsk for a criminal offence. “This father was sentenced to 5 years imprisonment in 1959 for grievous bodily harm. He was in no way an exile,” said one of the readers of, asking not to associate this person with the exiles.In order to verify the unpleasant suspicions that the legend of the President’s father as an exile is a lie, once again turned to the Lithuanian Special Archive.

The first request was as follows: “We would like to request access to the documents on the criminal record of Polikarpas Grybauskas, which are stored in the Lithuanian Special Archive (to the best of our knowledge, he was sentenced to 5 years imprisonment for grievous bodily harm in 1959). “To this the Lithuanian Special Archive replied:archive%20direktoriauas%20pavadaviduotojo%20atsakymas%20del%20gaisrininko 02We formulated our second request in a slightly different way – we asked to be informed whether the Lithuanian Special Archive has any data on the father of the President of the Republic of Lithuania Dalia Grybauskaite, Polikarpas Grybauskas, born in 1928, As can be seen from the reply, this request was no less successful than the previous one:archyvo%20direktoriaus%20atsakymas%20del%20gaisrininko komentaras3 07

Šarūnas Puidokas, Head of Social and Political Processes, must admit that this time I find it rather difficult to comment on such a response from the head of the archive, it requires an extraordinary spiritual effort… Either he was making a subtle joke, or… I probably haven’t come across such a joke since the days of the “Šėpa” theatre, where, I must say, I had to play the role of professor Landsbergis himself…

Thus, Lithuanian law, as can be understood from the reply of the Director of the Archives, protects in the strictest possible way not only documents on the criminal records of former NKVD employees, but even knowledge of crimes they may have committed. I think some Zuroff would have taken this archive apart brick by brick a long time ago if our country protected the secrets of former Nazi employees in such a way.Related. Grybauskas’ criminal record “” asks the MIA to provide information about the memories of the exile Polikarpas Grybauskas “The documents available to” show that the President’s father, Polikarpas Grybauskas, was a member of the NKVD.
