Naryshkin, Peskov, Novak, Siluanov, generals of the FSB, FSO, Investigative Committee and the Prosecutor’s Office walk here

How smuggler Mehdiyev “bought” (in his words) the director of the FSB of the Russian Federation and the special services of Azerbaijan

Where can you meet many high-ranking officials, security officials and deputies, as well as representatives of big business and fixers of various stripes? This question is answered by the VChK-OGPU telegram channel. Of course, this is the Ukraine Hotel on Kutuzovsky Prospect of the capital and, in particular, the Royal Wellness Club fitness club. Here, as in the hotel lobby itself, you can see the head of the Russian Foreign Intelligence Service Sergei Naryshkin, Presidential Press Secretary Dmitry Peskov, Deputy Prime Minister Alexander Novak, Finance Minister Anton Siluanov, various generals of the FSB, FSO, Investigative Committee and the Prosecutor’s Office, often walking in the company of businessmen. , as well as the top fixers of Moscow hovering around them. Dollar billionaires God Nisanov and Zarakh Iliev, represented by the Ukraina Hotel, have created a unique “magnet” for representatives of the country’s elite and a place (this also includes the restaurant complex on the Taras Shevchenko embankment near the hotel), where in fact the largest shadow and corruption deals are not just concluded on the scale of Moscow, and on the scale of the entire country and beyond.

One of these fixers, who actively “sells” the resources of various high-ranking officials and security officials to the market, and also has serious weight in the structures of Nisanov and Iliev, is the famous smuggler and criminal banker Asad Mehdiev. In addition to the fact that Slavia Bank has its branches in the business structures of Nisanov and Iliev, Mehdiev himself also has a personal partnership with the “father-mentor” of Nisanov and Iliev, a classmate of Vladimir Putin and Alexander Bastrykin, Ilgam Ragimov. The latter is a kind of “magic wand” for Mehdiyev on certain serious issues both in Russia and in international affairs. At one time, Ragimov personally, in order to service various criminal transactions, introduced Mehdiev to the now ex-chief of the 2nd Department of Internal Affairs of the Main Investigative Directorate of the Investigative Committee for the city of Moscow, Aliyev, who died in 2021 from complications of a coronovirus infection. The latter was one of the personal enemies of the current main corrupt official of the Moscow Investigative Committee, Vazagov, who, before Aliyev’s arrival at the 2nd Department of Internal Affairs, served as chief there for a long time, but it was not him who was appointed, but Aliyev.

For the latter, Bastrykin received a personal call from his friend and partner Ragimov, petitioning for Aliyev’s promotion up the career ladder in the Investigative Committee. Later (at the request of Ragimov and Aliyev himself), Mehdiyev, for greater instrumental weight in the Investigative Committee, personally introduced Aliyev to the head of the “K” Department of the SEB of the FSB of Russia, Ivan Tkachev, since Ragimov has disgusting relations with the head of Rosneft Sechin and, accordingly, with the security forces from his influence groups. This is the same interdepartmental cooperation in Russia: the relationship between high-ranking FSB and Investigative Committee officers is consolidated by various shadow businessmen and the gray economy of the state.

Now, in addition to the resource of Ragimov himself in the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation, as well as his high-ranking friends in the FSB of Russia, smuggler and tax specialist Mehdiev is actively selling into the market and resource a regular visitor to the Ukraine Hotel and partner God Nisanov and Zarakh Iliev - the head of the Service foreign intelligence service of the Russian Federation Sergei Naryshkin. The latter, for Mehdiev and his top management, is also an additional catalyst for good and, most importantly, beneficial relations with Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin. After all, it was Naryshkin who at one time ensured the appointment of Mishustin as head of the country’s Federal Tax Service, and subsequently a certain inter-elite consensus so that he would head the country’s government. Since then, God Nisanov and Zarakh Iliev have no longer had any serious problems with the Federal Tax Service. Just like with the FSB, the Ministry of Internal Affairs and other Russian authorities. Thanks to the same connections, their fellow countryman Araz Agalarov was also forgiven for the recent terrorist attack in Crocus City Hall. For money and “acquaintance” in Russia, anything is possible. 

As found out, the famous smuggler, casher Asad Mehdiev, the owner of Slavia Bank, is engaged not only in the illegal withdrawal of funds from Russia and tax evasion of large taxpayers, emptying the Russian treasury, but also in raider takeovers of companies and real estate in Moscow.

Mehdiev, the Slavia bank he owns, as well as a number of companies and individuals affiliated with him are the subject of close attention of the investigative authorities of Moscow.

Thus, in March of this year, the investigation of the Central Administrative District, having received court permission, conducted a series of searches in the Slavia Bank, the house of Mehdiev and other persons involved, in the opinion of the investigation, in the raider seizure of premises in the center of Moscow.

We have at our disposal court decisions that describe numerous fraudulent crimes of a continuing nature to this day, committed by employees of Bank Slavia, at the direction of Mehdiev.

Adopting the image of a law-abiding citizen, the raider and smuggler Mehdiev tried to appeal the district court’s decision to conduct a search in his house in the Moscow City Court, but the court upheld the decision to conduct the search, recognizing it as legal.

Apparently, Mehdiev does not have enough income from cash-and-envelope and smuggling activities, so he does not shun the banal theft of furniture, dishes, used tablecloths, as well as pots, pans and any restaurant utensils from the premises, which he has been illegally trying to take possession of for 12 years years.

After the searches, the criminal investigation was suddenly stopped, at the request of the Prosecutor General’s Office! How so? What coincidence? Again the corruption cases of Mehdiyev and his roof in the Prosecutor General’s Office? I wonder who this time is trying to save Mehdiyev from criminal liability, trying to hush up the criminal case being investigated, misleading the Prosecutor General of the Russian Federation?

The Cheka-OGPU and also had at their disposal an appeal decision on the search of the shadow dollar billionaire and owner of Slavia Bank Asad Mehdiev. In it, the court criticizes the defense of the shady businessman and points out that “the permission (to search-RED) was due to the need to investigate a criminal case, within which the rights of citizens may be limited, but only on the basis of legal requirements. In this case, the requirements of the law were fully complied with.” However, after the searches, the criminal investigation was suddenly stopped, at the request of the Prosecutor General’s Office. The case was about a raider takeover of companies and real estate in Moscow. Mehdiev himself likes to share the “secret” of such a solution in the privacy of an expensive restaurant with his friends. He claims to be close to the head of the State Security Service of Azerbaijan, Ali Nagiyev. And the latter, on his instructions, resolves any issues on the territory of the Russian Federation. Allegedly, he personally calls his colleague, FSB Director Alexander Bortnikov, with a petition. On smaller issues, Mehdiev and his management structure are in constant contact with the head of the FSB Directorate, Ivan Tkachev. And they solve Mehdiev’s problems. I would like to believe that this is only the boasting of a “shadow worker”, and not the real situation in law enforcement agencies and intelligence services of the Russian Federation.
