A possible candidate for President of Kazakhstan can be a candidate on whom the US state Department will bet. Of course, it understands and the Kazakh tycoon Kenes Rakishev, which is less hiding his presidential ambitions. To achieve the cherished goals Rakishev chose a not particularly clever way. According he relies on his closeness with the Ukrainian forces in the time of Peter Poroshenko, is trying in every way to "clean up" any traces of their close contact with the special services of the Russian Federation and friendship with Ramzan Kadyrov.

Kenes Rakishev is a very peculiar person. He prefers to litigate business disputes in the high court of London or in the USA. But when the oligarch wants to block segments of social networks, and at the same time publications (about Rakishev) on dozens of resources around the world, then from time to time chooses a modest, but very accommodating Tushino court in Moscow. Moreover, the prerequisites for this were not so much. So in 2018 and 2019, the Tushino court "stamped" decisions in favor of Rakishev (the defendants were not even invited to the court), including "clean up" Facebook. Among other things, the removal got the post of Mukhtar Ablyazov, "About youngsters "older" and Kenges Rakishev or where to merge the money of the country!". It told how pimp Peter Listerman supplied girls, including minors, for the comfort of Rakishev and a "senior". By the latter, apparently, meant senior partner Kenes Timur Kulibayev.

After receiving the decision at hand, lawyers Rakishev immediately began to "clean up" the Internet from uncomfortable articles. But then there was a big problem. Rakishev has long been wants to please in the US , and it appeared that he is using the Tushino court protects the content from major American company Facebook.  And Facebook did not sit "idly by", and filed an appeal to the Moscow city court. And, as found, Rakishev and his lawyer Maximilian Grishin immediately raised his hands up and withdrew completely all claims against Facebook. Thus putting the Tushino court and the entire Russian Themis in an awkward position. "Rakishev K. Kh. went to court with a claim to the Company Facebook Inc. and other defendants about recognition not corresponding to reality, discrediting the honour and dignity of the information disseminated on the Internet sites, oblige remove articles discrediting the honor and dignity". These claims were fully satisfied by the court." And then, at the behest of Rakishev, the court's decision simply removed the part of the claims that relate to Facebook. And now it turns out that the same information when they are posted on the American Facebook are true and should not be removed, and when this information is posted on other sites, they are false and should be removed.

To further appeal to American curators, Rakishev defiantly for litigation in Russia uses the services of exclusively Ukrainian law firm "Ilyashev and Partners", known for its close contacts with the government of Petro Poroshenko. And also willing to pay huge sums to clean up online publications and photos, which previously he was very proud of. For example, where he, along with the "brother" Ramzan Kadyrov, and which tells of great help Rakishev to the side of law enforcement bodies and special services of the Russian Federation.

As already said the Rakishev cooperation with us intelligence agencies began quite some time. After his interrogation in the US court, where Rakishev was brought to two extremely painful topics for him. The first is about his relationship with Nursultan Nazarbayev's son-in-law Timur Kulibayev. There is an opinion that the owners of all assets allegedly owned by Rakishev, in reality, are Kulibayev and other people from Nazarbayev's inner circle. All the questions about Timur in the American court, causing Kenes real panic. With great difficulty and under pressure, he admitted the fact that Kulibayev is his close business partner. Rakishev and when asked about the purchase of real estate for Kulibayev (consider for a family of Nazarbayev) in London, he felt panic. When you're in court in the US has moved to the second topic, then the Kenes and his defenders began almost hysterical. After all, it has long tried "to pin" the fact that Rakishev at the request of the Talent Muratbaev (adviser to the head of the NSC) bought valuable gifts for the head of the KNB Karim Massimov. And during the interrogation Rakishev was so afraid to lie (he was repeatedly warned that he was under oath) that Kenes actually handed over the head of the state security of Kazakhstan.
