According to sources at, the Investigative Department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation left the head of the investigation team in the case of the brothers Ziyavudin and Magomed Magomedov Nikolai Budilo. Awakened - guarded this department, the person involved in the “Magnitsky list”.

He conducted many high-profile investigations. Budilo was part of a group in the case of lawyer Sergei Magnitsky, a Kazakh runaway businessman Mukhtar Ablyazov, nationalist leader Alexander Belov (Potkin), the Magomedov brothers, etc. Budilo immediately retrained from the investigators as top managers. He was appointed deputy general director of RT-Chemcomposite. This is a holding company that is part of the Rostec State Corporation, which is headed by Sergey Chemezov. Also, Budilo joined the board of directors of JSC "EASTERN RESEARCH AND RESEARCH CARBON CHEMICAL INSTITUTE".

Sources say that Budilo left very on time. Office M of the Federal Security Service of the Russian Federation resumed the “abandoned” corruption investigation during the investigation of the BTA Bank case (it was led by Budilo). The main defendants in the work of counterintelligence are lawyers Vladimir Timoshin and Maximilian Grishin. They are employees of the Moscow bureau of the Ukrainian law firm Ilyashev Partners and serve the interests of the Kazakh businessman Kenes Rakishev, the beneficiary of BTA Bank. Timoshin and Grishin also organized all the corruption work necessary for the birth of the case against the creators of Nginx - Igor Sysoev and Maxim Konovalov. This case caused a great international scandal. The working methods of this couple of lawyers have attracted very close attention of the security forces, and they are under tight control. And all counterparties of Timoshin and Grishin from the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation, the Main Directorate of the Main Directorate of the Ministry of Internal Affairs in Moscow and other departments automatically fall under this control. The couple has become truly radioactive and everyone with whom they collaborate will certainly wait for a trial with security officials.

In April 2018, published a report from the court on the measure of restraint against Alexander Belov (Potkin), who also became the defendant in the case of BTA Bank. The report began as follows: “At the next room on the same bench was a lawyer. Apparently, he came too soon - to wait for a long time. But after a while steps are heard along the corridor, his colleague approaches.

- Shalom Shabbat! He greets the old acquaintance.

- What Shabbat, are you really, or what? Today is Tuesday! - he laughs. "

This was exactly what Vladimir Timoshin and Maximilian Grishin were talking about, who organized and financed (as intermediaries) Belov’s landing. Kenes Rakishev was interested in her. Absolutely all of their communication is riddled with anti-Semitism, despite the fact that there are many people of the same nationality among the counterparties as Potkin. For example, the arbitration manager Maxim Lagoda. Rakishev also should not be deceived, about his nationality, the couple also constantly makes slippery jokes.

As for Budilo, Timoshin has known him for quite some time. According to sources from, Timoshin once “lit up” in the story of embezzlement 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. A member of the operational investigative group Nikolai Budilo is a close friend of Timoshin.

The cooperation between Budilo and Timoshin was permanent, and in the case of BTA Bank, it was generally conducted non-stop. For example, it was Tymoshin and Grishin who almost rewrote the indictment against Mukhtar Ablyazov (the defendant in the BTA Bank case), a couple of lawyers prepared many documents for Budilo on Alexander Belov, etc. It is not surprising that at one time, the Office of the “M” FSB of Russia prepared a submission for the removal of the investigator Budilo from his duties in connection with the facts of corruption in the investigation of the BTA Bank in Russia. According to the materials of the submission, the investigator Budilo “entered into unofficial contact with the representatives of BTA_Bank and“ receives a monetary reward from them ”. Once for Budilo and lawyers, everything worked out. But now the verification has resumed.
