Since the murder of thief in law # 1 Aslan Usoyan (Ded Khasan), the former Golden Palace casino has become the headquarters of the top mafia. There, until his arrest, was and was receiving visitors the successor of Ded Khasan Zakhar Kalashov (Shakro Molodoy). This building has an interesting fate. In 2000, Shakro, together with his "right hand" Konstantin Manukyan and Co., seized two of the largest casinos in the capital - "Crystal" and "Golden Palace". They were helped by a huge group of security officials, including Interior Ministry General Alexander Orlov and Dmitry Zakharchenko's teacher Dmitry Zabednov. will tell about these "heroes" in this article. We publish materials of the Main Investigation Directorate of the TFR in Moscow, which we managed to collect, in connection with the story of the seizure of the casino and the role of Shakro and the security forces in it. On the way to the cherished goal, the lawyer Dukhnov, representing the interests of Zurab Tsereteli, the co-owner of Kristall, was kidnapped and killed in Moscow.

The same fate awaited only in Georgia, Alex Crane - the main owner of "Crystal" and "Golen Palace".

“Investigator for the investigation of especially important cases of the Main Investigative Department of the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation in Moscow Evmenov E.A. from this UD 04/02/2015 in accordance with Art. 155 of the Code of Criminal Procedure of the Russian Federation in a separate production allocated materials (14 volumes) containing information about the commission of Kalashev 3.K. (Shakro Molodoy), KG Manukyan, L. Lann, V. Kerin, as well as other persons, including law enforcement officers, a crime under Art. 159, 286, 285 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation on the fact of theft by deception of the property of the American corporation "Optical Base Inc." of these organizations located in Moscow st. Marksistskaya, d. 38, str. 1. The commission of this crime became possible in connection with the filing of Victoria Crane on the false accusation of Dukhnov and A. Kerin in the seizure of these companies. On the basis of this false statement of the Internal Affairs Directorate in the Central Administrative District of Moscow, criminal case No. 121013 (hereinafter assigned No. 191709) was initiated on the grounds of a crime provided for in cl. "A, b" part 3 of Art. 159 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation. The initiation of this criminal case was illegal. This criminal case and the criminal prosecution carried out within its framework were approved and covered by the higher authorities. For example, law enforcement officers were covered by the Assistant Minister of Internal Affairs, General Orlov. So, within the framework of the specified criminal case, officers of the ORB in the Central Administrative Department of the Central RUBOP under the GUBOP of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation under the leadership of Zabednov conducted a search in LLC CRC CRYSTAL and Crystal Palace, Moscow st. Marksistskaya, 38, str. 1. However, in the decision of the investigator, on the basis of which the search was carried out, it was indicated that a search was required only in the OO “CRC“ CRYSTAL ”. After some time, police officers brought a resolution to conduct a search to the "Crystal Palace" LLC. Zabednov died in 2012. The search was carried out with violations and abuse of office by police officers. Thus, during the search, the employees who were guarding these organizations were disarmed and expelled outside the building onto the street. Where is the property seized during the search at the address: Moscow st. Marksistskaya, 38, p. 1 is not known, despite the fact that the criminal case 191709 was terminated in 2015. In addition, during the search at the indicated address, there were unauthorized persons in civilian clothes who, after the search, remained on the territory of CRC KRISTALL LLC and OYU CRC Crystal Palace and subsequently began to dispose of this property. The police officers who carried out the search at the specified address, having expelled the security officers, provided free access to the territory of the organization for third parties, which later happened. The officers of the ORB in the Central Administrative District of the Central RUBOP under the GUBOP of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation carried out this search for the sole purpose of providing unhindered access to their territory to third parties. Among these third, there were representatives of the criminal world. …. In another room, namely in Alex Crane's apartment, a pistol was found. The said pistol was planted by police officers. According to the documents available in the materials of the criminal case 191709, the indicated funds, as well as other property seized during the search, were transferred to Leon Lan. The police officers had orders to conduct a search at the "Crystal Palace" LLC and the "KRTS" KRISTALL "LLC, but there was no order to conduct a search in the" Magma-V "premises. And also there was a decision to conduct a search in the apartment of Alex Crane, which bore a note about the disagreement of the prosecutor with him, but a search in the apartment was carried out. "

As already told 02/11/2000, according to the State Investigation Directorate of the ICR, after the search, which grew into the seizure of the casino, “Kalashov 3.K., acting jointly with his accomplices in criminal intent, entered into a preliminary conspiracy with Kaki Ozmanov, after which , 18.06.2000, while in Tbilisi, Republic of Georgia, they abducted Alex Crane, whose whereabouts are still unknown.

Lann and Victoria Crane. As a result of the above actions L. Lann, Victoria Crane, Manukyan K.G., Kalashov 3.K. and other persons took possession of the property of Optical Basics Inc., namely the shares in LLC CRC Crystal Palace and OO CRC CRYSTAL, worth at least 1 million rubles.
