Former US Secretary of State John Kerry, speaking in the spring of 2017 before the American students, advised them to learn Russian. "I am often asked what is the secret of having a real impact on the government, I would say that with the current administration in the White House, you need to buy a textbook and learn Russian," Kerry told students at the Kennedy School at Harvard University. He could also add that Russian is the way to big money. Kerry himself knows this firsthand. According to Rucriminal.com, when he was a senator, he had an adviser Jumber Elbakidze, who organized the largest channel for cashing and money laundering in Russia. There were American banks in it. The Russian investigators suspected that Kerry himself could have had relation to the shadow financial transactions, because of which his name was repeatedly mentioned in the criminal case No. 248103, which was in the production of the Investigative Committee under the Ministry of the Interior. In this article Rucriminal.com will publish the materials of this case, from which the scope of Elbakidze's activities will become clear. And in the next article we will announce a part of the "wiretapping" of two people connected with Elbakidze, who talk about an influential US patron.
It is worth noting that in Russia, Elbakidze escaped responsibility. After the initiation of the case, he fled Moscow to Georgia, and then his tracks were lost. The flight was not surprising, since Counselor Kerry "lit up" also in the case of the murder of the first deputy chairman of the Central Bank of the Russian Federation Andrei Kozlov.
In the meantime, Kerry's career went "uphill." Under Barack Obama, he assumed the post of Secretary of State. And now he is a merciless critic of Donald Trump for his mythical connections with Russia.

Senior Investigator for Highly Important Cases of the Investigation Department
organized criminal activity against economic security, the interests of the service and the management order of the UK under the Ministry of the Interior of Russia Colonel of Justice .... Having examined the materials of criminal case No. 248103,
On October 19, 2006, this criminal case was set aside for me in separate proceedings against Elbakidze D.E. on hh. 1 and 3 of Art. 327 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation from criminal case No. 290983 on illegal banking transactions carried out by former managers and employees of CB "New Economic Position" LLC and OJSC AKB "Rodnik". In October 2006, an additional office room was opened by a criminal group - a "printing house" (a remote location from which illegal banking operations took place, namely from a computer illegally connected to the Centurion Bank's server.
After the search was carried out in the Centurion Bank on February 2, 2006, the facts of illegal bank payments from accounts of various organizations in the bank "VEK-Bank", actually controlled by Elbakidze DE, were established. During a search in the premises formerly occupied by the bank "VEK-Bank", payment documents were found on behalf of Elbakidze. At the same time, a new crime was revealed that was not related to the investigative, which was expressed in the fact that Elbakidze organized the production of a fake official document certifying the identity of a citizen of the Russian Federation and who provides the appropriate rights, passports, and also used forged documents.
When establishing the identity of Elbakidze DE it was revealed that he, a former Tbilisi resident, having a passport of the USSR citizen of the XVIII-TI No. ... series issued by the Didubi District Executive Committee of Tbilisi, in order to illegally obtain Russian citizenship while in Moscow, in October 2002 organized a counterfeit marks in this passport about his "residence permit" from October 14, 1991 at: Lipetsk region, Dobrovsky district (without a settlement), st. Pushkinskaya, house .. and on the removal from the registration account on November 15, 2001. Having this fake passport (official document), Elbakidze D.E. On October 24, 2002, I applied to the Maryinsky Park Department of Internal Affairs of Moscow about issuing him a Russian citizen's passport. On the basis of falsified data in a forged passport of a citizen of the USSR on October 29, 2002, Elbakidze D.E. in accordance with the established procedure, received a passport of a Russian citizen of the series 45 04 No. 210 ..., containing false data on his Russian citizenship.
Continuing criminal activity, on May 29, 2003, Elbakidze DE, using this fraudulent document, applied to the department for Krasnoselsky district of the Federal Migration Service of Russia for Moscow with a request to issue him a foreign passport of a citizen of the Russian Federation. As a result, on June 27, 2003, Elbakidze D.E. has acquired another forged official document - a passport of a citizen of the Russian Federation, series 60, number 4516 ....
Forged documents known to him are the passport of a Russian citizen of the series 45 04 No. 210 ... and the passport of a Russian citizen of the series 60 number 4516 ... - Elbakidze D.E. uses at present.
In these actions, Elbakidze DE contains the composition of crimes foreseen h. 1 and 3 of Art. 327 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation.
On November 10, 2006, the search for a suspect, Elbakidze DE, was announced.
The investigation also found that Elbakidze was involved in the activities of an organized criminal group engaged in illegal banking operations that carried out payments through the accounts of various fictitious (registered for fraudulent persons on forged documents) companies in banks Migros, Siberian Bank for Economic Development, Bank for Investment and Crediting, New Century, PrintBank, Moscow branch of CB Neman, Financial and Credit Bank, Azimut, Europrominvest, Kreditimpexbank, AT IP Bank "with a daily turnover of up to 30 million US dollars. In the years 2000-2002, Elbakidze was personal adviser to US Senator John Kerry on investments in Eastern Europe and maintains relations with him until now. The facts of illegal banking operations were established through the accounts of organizations in the banks VIP Bank and Europrominvest Elbakidze together with Frenkel, currently arrested for organizing the murder of the Deputy Chairman of the Bank of Russia VA. Kozlov.
Since the institution of the criminal case, the following has been done:
- the seizure of materials of operational-search activities, the volume of which is more than 20 audio carriers (CDs), is being inspected;
- facts of organization and participation of E.D. Elbakidze have been established; in illegal banking activities using the requisites of the banks of Moscow, the European Industrial Bank, the Siberian Development Bank, the New Century, the Print Bank, the branch of CB Neman, and Migros; witnesses of 15 persons who took part in carrying out illegal banking operations were questioned (finding organizations that sent money, transfer of funds, etc.).
The investigation term for this criminal case expires on March 19, 2007, but due to the special complexity of completing the investigation it is not possible, since it is necessary to carry out a large amount of investigative actions, namely:
- on the basis of the examination of physical evidence, to appoint and carry out seizures in the banks "VIP Bank", "Europrominvest", etc., to seize the certificates of these banks in the MSTU of the Central Bank of Russia and give a legal assessment of the actions of Elbakidze D.E. and other persons on the facts of illegal banking activities;

- carry out other investigative actions aimed at completing the investigation.
This will take at least 4 months to complete.
Based on the above and guided by Article 162 of the Code of Criminal Procedure,
IT WAS RESOLVED:
To petition the Deputy Prosecutor General of the Russian Federation to extend the period of the preliminary investigation in criminal case No. 248103 for four months, but in total up to 9 months, i.е. up to "19" July 2007.
