The Prosecutor General’s Office has reasons to terminate the criminal case of copyright infringement of Rambler Group on Nginx developments, Vedomosti writes with reference to the response of Deputy Prosecutor General Viktor Grin to the request of Andrei Svintsov, deputy head of the State Duma committee on information policy, information technology and communications. In a letter to the Prosecutor General’s Office, it was reported that the arguments of co-founder of Nginx Igor Sysoev about violations of the law during pre-trial proceedings were confirmed, therefore, the department instructed the Moscow prosecutor to take measures to eliminate them and raise an issue with the investigators to dismiss the case. The fact that the “Nginx case” was completely fabricated was first reported by Now that the Prosecutor General’s Office has come to the same conclusions, the question will be who will go to the pre-trial detention center for fabrication that has damaged the image of Russia. Listing this friendly campaign. Funded the “hitting" and then wanted to get  Nginx Kazakh businessman Kenes Rakishev.

Organizational events were conducted by a fugitive Russian businessman Yuri Kaloev. All technical work was carried out, lawyers with a dubious reputation Maximilian Grishin and Vladimir Timoshin solved problems with the Main Directorate of the Main Directorate of the Ministry of Internal Affairs in Moscow.

The investigation of is based on the study of materials prepared by Grishin and Timoshin for fabricating the case, and which were at the disposal of the publisher. It follows from them that Kenes Rakishev is investing in the world of money from the top of Kazakhstan, including the son-in-law of Nursultan Nazarbayev Timur Kulibayev. Because of this, serious global structures do not cooperate with Rakishev. His own attempts at investing end in failure, which Rakishev is trying to compensate for by PR in various media. Rakishev spends most of his time in London, where he met with Yuri Kaloev. The latter was the Chairman of the Board of Directors in the company OJSC Kaluga Meat Processing Plant (KMK). From 2008 to 2012, Kaloev attracted loans and at the same time withdrew the assets of the plant to organizations controlled by him, registered in Cyprus. Only at Sberbank the enterprising director managed to borrow about 760 million rubles. When a criminal case was opened, Kaloev fled to England. He is on the international wanted list. He did not choose London by chance. His wife, Nadezhda Stasyuk, works at the office of VTB Capital Investment Bank in London. At the time the crime was committed, Ms. Stasyuk headed the Legal Department, and now Nadezhda Ippolitovna has grown to become the Executive Director of VTB Capital, London.

In 2016, Kaloev opened the company Effective Advisors LTD in London, which provides consulting services. Oracle Welbeck Partners, a real estate investment advisory firm, is registered at the same address with this company. The director of this company is Kalamkas Kurmanova, who also works in Effective Advisors.

Having wives in VTB, and other sources of information, Kaloev quickly learns which companies have weaknesses. More precisely, as a result, Kaloev, together with partners, volunteered to help Rakishev find objects for investment. Or rather find objects to capture. One of such objects was chosen by Nginx

As a result, negotiations were held with Lynwood Investments CY Ltd (the son of Alexander Mamut, co-owner of Rambler, is considered to be the beneficiary, since the Rambler Group in 2015 ceded to her the right to bring claims and claims in proceedings with Nginx  and the following agreements were concluded. All work will be handled by the Rakishev-Kaloev team. If Nginx manages to be squeezed, then it will go to Rakishev, and accordingly Lynwood Investments CY Ltd will receive a specific and very considerable amount.

Further, lawyers Maximilian Grishin and Vladimir Timoshin joined the work. They are employees of the Moscow office of the Ukrainian law firm Ilyashev & Partners, which represents Rakishev's interests in Russia and Ukraine. Timoshin and Grishin also collaborate on a number of projects with Kaloev and Oracle. What are these projects will tell in the near future. In general, this couple has a lot of contacts with Kaloev. Kaloev, according to media reports, financially supports FBK Alexei Navalny. And Maximilian Grishin in 2011 was one of the leaders of the student teams of the white tape movement and an active participant in the events on Bolotnaya Square.

Timoshin’s “business uphill” began in the late 2000s after his participation in the raider attack on the large enterprise “Red Proletarian”. During the takeover of the enterprise, in November 2009, in Cyprus, its head and owner Yuri Ivanovich Kirillov was beaten to death.

Vladimir Timoshin, thanks to certain very personal relationships, opens the door with his foot to many offices of the Main Directorate of the Main Directorate of the Ministry of Internal Affairs in Moscow. It was he who agreed to initiate the case necessary for the capture of Nginx. Since there was no reason to initiate proceedings, they decided to "blind" him. Timoshin often began to visit the office of Rambler, where he was negotiating with a man whom he called "Aybi". Sometimes Grishin was also involved in discussions. In the summer of 2019, Timoshin began to fabricate the necessary materials. Maximilian Grishin, on behalf of Timoshin, was engaged in composing fictitious surveys of ex-Rambler employees, etc. gives the protocol of the survey of former Rambler employee Alexander Germanovich Korotkov, which was conducted by Vladimir Timoshin in August 2019 (more than three months before the initiation of proceedings).

Well, as I did. He simply brought for signing a ready-made survey protocol drawn up by Timoshin himself and his younger associate in Ilyashev & Partners Maximilian Grishin. The survey included data that could serve as a basis for initiating proceedings and then serve as "iron" evidence.

The lawyers also involved Group-IB in their work, whose employees worked with a server on which Rambler had all internal correspondence for many years. Also, the “specialists” of Group-IB organized access to personal accounts of Nginx creators Igor Sysoev and Maxim Konovalov. In particular, Group-IB managed to arrange access to the correspondence of Sysoev and Konovalov with representatives of PwC, IDelyne Group, Greycroft LL.C., Greyeroft Partners II LP., BV Capital VCC, Greenberg, Whitcombe & Takeuchi LLP., Runa Capital I. LP, GlobTechFund. All this work was generously funded by Kenes Rakishev.

Having obtained all this correspondence, Group-IB, under the dictation of Timoshin and Grishin, performed a certain analysis of “evidence”, in which Igor Sysoev, Maxim Konovalov, and their partners were designated as “alleged criminals”. As a result, this fruit of the creativity of Group-IB and Rakishev’s lawyers also became one of the materials needed to initiate a case ordered by Timoshin at the Main Directorate of the Main Directorate of the Ministry of Internal Affairs in Moscow.
