The “Project” found out that one of the participants in the story of the massacre on Rochdelskaya Street, the oligarch from Kazakhstan Kenes Rakishev, uses the power of Ramzan Kadyrov to capture new assets and resolve business disputes. In return, Kadyrov’s representatives become co-owners of the assets received by Rakishev. For example, one could include the Vitino Management Company (oil port). It was one of the assets of Mukhtar Ablyazov in Russia, and Rakishev hunted for him. His loyal attorneys Vladimir Timoshin and Maximilian Grishin did all the legal work. representatives of Rakishev’s Chechen friends, the result - in 2015, the port became the property of the Vitino Management Company, controlled by BTA Bank (this former bank of Ablyazov was also acquired by Rakishev), but the founders of this company were not Rakishev and not BTA Bank, but some Dmitry Shivkov and Dmitry Filatyev. Shivkov is the brother of the wife of Pavel Krotov. Krotov is the official representative of Kadyrov-Delimkhanov in various business projects. In this regard, according to eyewitnesses, opponents of Rakishev can be beaten and imprisoned. According to the telegram channel of the Cheka. The OGPU, Rakishev himself, after the United States imposed sanctions on Kadyrov, hides such a business partner in every possible way.

Earlier, the head of Chechnya, Ramzan Kadyrov, deleted all congratulatory messages on social networks to his friend and business partner, Kazakh oligarch Kenes Rakishev. This happened after the US authorities announced the intensification of measures against persons having financial relations with Kadyrov. And Rakishev, of course, refers to such persons.

The United States put Ramzan Kadyrov on its sanctions list in 2017 on the basis of the so-called Magnitsky law, which allows the US authorities to impose personal restrictions on those responsible for violating human rights and the rule of law in Russia.

According to sources at, the State Department’s statement about the collection of data on persons having relationships, including financial, with Kadyrov caused a panic in Kenesav Rakshev. He is the first to fall under the control of the State Department and also fall under sanctions. The source is called precisely Rakishev, a man promoting the interests of a friend of Kadyrov in England. Previously, he promoted Kadyrov's interests in Kazakhstan.

This is only part of the problems of Raktishev. As told, Rakishev’s close relationship with another member of the Magnitsky’s list, former Interior Ministry investigator Nikolai Budilo, became clear. Rakishev conducted informal communication with him through his lawyer Vladimir Timoshin. Together with Timoshin, Rakishev turned out to be a participant in the story with an attempt to seize Nginx through a criminal case, which caused a great international scandal. We published the relevant documents. Timoshin, by the way, at one time "appeared" in the story of the theft of money paid to the structures of William Browder in the budget of the Russian Federation. Timoshin "worked" with the documents of the company "Far Steppe" involved in a giant scam. The lawyer who exposed her, Sergei Magnitsky, died in prison. The case in which Magnitsky was arrested was led by the Investigative Department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation. Nikolai Budilo, a close friend of Timoshin, who was part of the operational investigative group, was included in the Magnitsky list.

At the disposal of were an audio recording made by restaurateur Jeanne Kim at her restaurant, Element, an hour before the shootout.

This record makes you look at this story in a completely different way. Talks with Jeanne are conducted by lawyers of opponents, trying to clarify the situation with the debt. There are no threats. The situation changes after Kim got in touch with her close friend, Element investor, Kazakh businessman Kenes Rakishev. He promises to send his fighters to her, after which Kim begins to openly be rude to the guests, provoking them into conflict. At that time, Rakishev himself sent a lawyer Eduard Budantsev, who was closely associated with the FSB of the Russian Federation, to "disassemble".

At the same time, Rakishev clearly knew that the people of the “thief in law” Zakhar Kalashov (Shakro Molodoy) had joined the conflict, but he kept this information from Budantsev. Thus, according to sources, he deliberately provoked a conflict. Budantsev from the doorstep "Element" declares that he is an employee of the criminal investigation department and begins a dive with opponents who had previously talked quite peacefully. It all ended in a shootout between Budantsev and his fighters on the one hand and Andrei Kochuykov (Italian) and his fighters on the other. The only shooter who used military weapons was Budantsev. The result was two corpses of Italian guards.

It is because of all these points that Rakishev himself is trying to visit Russia less, and the “victim” Kim refused to fly from Kazakhstan (she is a citizen of this country) to the trial of Kalashov and his “right hand” Andrei Kochuykov (Italian) and to answer questions lawyers for the accused. According to, first of all, in order not to answer uncomfortable questions about his patron, Kazakh oligarch Kenes Rakishev.
