The search, which officers of the FSB of the Russian Federation and the ICR conducted in the investigative departments, was connected with the investigation of a criminal case of corruption (conducted under Article 290 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (taking a bribe) in the SU in the North-West Administrative District of Moscow. base on the important man Alexei Nesnov. He had a premonition that something was wrong and went on sick leave in advance, from which he simply did not leave for work. All his cases were urgently transferred to other investigators. And this is the case of embezzlement at the Vostochny cosmodrome, and the case of fraud, all whose threads lead to the pseudo-lawyer Elman Pashayev, and the case is in relation to the owners of the company Merlion.

According to operational data, Nesnov fled to the UAE. For the employees of the FSB of the Russian Federation, what happened is not surprising. Otherwise, Nesnov would have had to answer extremely uncomfortable questions. Nesnov is only a cog in a gigantic corruption mechanism that has threshed gigantic sums of money. And if within the framework of the case it is possible to “cover” the entire mechanism of the Russians, an investigation, unprecedented in its scope and persona, will await, which includes the following points: bribes to the employees of the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation Maksimenko and Drymanov; a bribe to the investigator of the TFR Ruslan Miniakhmetov and a number of now former employees of the FSB of the Russian Federation; kidnapping of US citizen Boris Minakha; divorce on the money of billionaire David Yakobashvili by Oleg Pokrovsky; participation in a number of criminal stories of Yakobashvili himself and his relative David Mirzoev; raider activities of the Kachurov families, etc. All these are links in the same chain with the same heroes. In fact, a gigantic power war has now begun.

According to, after the flight of Nesnov and the initiation of a bribe case, clouds are gathering more and more over one of the largest fixers Vitaly Kachur (former friend and partner of ex-deputy of the State Duma of the Russian Federation Denis Voronenkov) and his son Kirill. Together with a whole group of Moscow investigators and operatives (and further and even higher), they turned out to be involved in one of the largest developments of recent times aimed at combating corruption. We are talking about bribes in the millions of dollars, falsified cases, seizure of objects worth hundreds of millions of dollars. We will describe only two such stories.

 History 1. Billionaire David Yakobashvili has not been doing very well in recent years. Together with his "nephew" David Mirzoev, he became a defendant in the kidnapping case of Boris Minakha's business partner. As a result, Yakobashvili and Mirzoev left Russia, but then the latter returned and took over the affairs of his uncle. In particular, two fixer friends Oleg Pokrovsky and Vitaly Kachur (both friends of Mikhail Mishustin's former son-in-law Alexander Udodov and love to flaunt the name of the prime minister), as well as the latter’s son, Kirill, were thrown to solve all sorts of problems with law enforcement agencies. And the "pump" started to pump money out of Yakobashvili to solve both real and invented problems. Since the Kachurov family is primarily known as successful raiders, hundreds of millions of dollars worth of Yakobashvili's real estate were copied and stolen along the way. The latter, due to a serious illness, did not notice what was happening for a long time, and when he regained his sight he began to fight for the return of his assets. And then Kachury, Pokrovsky and Mirzoev decided to eliminate the "old man" by sending him to jail. For good financial support, they resolved the issue with the Internal Affairs Directorate of the Central Administrative District, which initiated a corresponding case. Yakobashvili was under the threat of arrest. And the billionaire in parting was still decided to dissolve for money. Pokrovsky proposed, out of old memory, to solve the problem with the Central Administrative District Department of Internal Affairs for $ 3 million. Upon receiving the first tranche, he was detained and sent to jail. Next, a case was initiated on the fact of fabricating a case against Yakobashvili. And then the "power swing" began, which has been going on for a long time. Then the situation is close to the fact that all the participants in Yakobashvili's "promotion" and the security officials who actively helped them will be detained. Then, on the contrary, the situation turns in such a way that the materials on Yakobashvili will be launched and he himself will become guilty.

Story 2. Vyacheslav Simonenko was the CEO of a large IT company Merlion. He parted with the owners (Abramov, Mangutov, Karchev) badly. Symonenko believed that he owed a very large "golden parachute". The owners didn't think so. Then Symonenko began to go to various raider groups, offering himself as a battering ram to attack Merlion. As a bonus, there was a murky story with the arson of Symonenko's house. However, among the owners of Merlion, Levin was responsible for safety, always inclined to take radical steps. Symonenko walked for a long time until he came to the Kachurov family. They were very interested in the topic. And they decided not only to shake the owners of Merlion, but to squeeze out the whole company. The same Oleg Pokrovsky and counterparties from the power unit were involved in the process. So the case of the attempted murder of Symonenko (the same arson) was born, and the testimony of a secret witness "Ivan Bilibin" became one of the main evidence. Under this pseudonym was all that the same fixer Oleg Pokrovsky, who broadcast everything necessary for a successful "investigation". At the same time, consultations to Kachur on the issue of the deliberately illegal bringing of the owners of Merlion to criminal liability were provided by a high-ranking officer of the OSB in the Central Administrative District of the Main Directorate of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia in Moscow named Dmitry (he also appeared in the story with Yakobashvili). The owners of the Merlion were sent to jail, where they received a tempting offer to part with the company for almost nothing. And then the same "power swing" began and the situation swings, then in one direction, then in the other direction. Now, for example, Nesnov, the investigator of the SZAO of the Main Investigative Directorate of the ICR in Moscow, and his former head Sergei Romodnovsky, the son of the ex-head of the Federal Migration Service, Konstantin Romodanovsky, are very close to landing.
