Arrest of businessman Ziyavudin Magomedov
After his triumphant victory in the presidential election in March 2018, Vladimir Putin, in response to a question from journalists, said that after the inauguration he would be engaged in changes in the government, and he was already beginning to think about it, including the candidacy of the prime minister. This question is undoubtedly the most interesting not only for Russians, but also for people from the highest echelons of power. After the rather vague response of the Russian president in the media, fortune-telling on the coffee grounds began with the announcement of some reshuffles and resignations. Most of all, the liberal press exaggerated the resignation of the vice-premier in charge of the military-industrial complex, Dmitry Rogozin, who, in her opinion, does not cope with his duties, literally ruined his industry and became related by relations in the ward. True, thinking readers constantly had a question: how did our military developments and new types of weapons turn out to be ahead of the entire planet, and our newest missiles can replace the earth's axis and turn the whole Earth even through the South Pole, even though the North Pole?
The next figure, which, according to the liberal media, should leave his post, was the Minister of Culture Vladimir Medinsky. They don’t like the refined public when the minister sticks his nose into where the brilliant progressive directors spend millions of state money, and doesn’t give new finances to staging performances questioning the mental state of theater directors.
Sergey Lavrov, the head of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, became another candidate who allegedly missed his pension and was tired of the bustling world. Well, the liberals cannot calm down because Russia has begun to pursue an independent foreign policy and regain its weight in the world. Their slave consciousness has become accustomed to the fact that Russia should bow its head in front of the West and lick the boot of the overseas occupier. After all, for licking intimate places of the western elite, you can get sweet cookies and your "honestly earned" 30 American tugriks.
For some time, thanks to Navalny, the ideas, actions and thoughts of which for some reason always coincide with what America and the "enlightened West" declare to us, Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu came under attack. And how not to get, if under his direct supervision our planes break the guided conflict in Syria, developed in the depths of the American special services?
But all these 31 forecasts of March, on the eve of April Fool's Day, were covered, so to speak, with a copper basin. On this day, the owners of the Summa group of companies, the brothers Magomed and Ziyavudin Magomedov, were detained. They were accused of fraud on a large scale, but most importantly of organizing a criminal community, and such an accusation is not groundless (given the serious connections of insatiable brothers in the high corridors of power and almost inexhaustible resources for bribing). After all, Ziyavudin Magomedov occupied, as of 2017, the 63 line in the Forbes rating, which includes the richest people of Russia, with 1,4 billion dollars.
According to investigators, hot dzhigits from Dagestan, who own "factories, newspapers, steamboats", appropriated more than 2,5 billion rubles. Part of this amount was stolen during the construction of the Arena Baltica stadium in Kaliningrad in preparation for the World Cup 2018. Probably, this is not a complete list of criminal acts that will be discovered by the investigating authorities. The Kremlin, in the person of often carrying, according to Putin, the “blizzard” of the presidential press secretary Dmitry Peskov, said that this arrest took place as part of the anti-corruption struggle. True, for some reason Peskov didn’t explain how it happened that the investigating authorities had been digging under the Magomedovs ’financial empire since the 2014 year, however, they received the blank check just now, on the eve of the formation of the new government ...
It is not a secret to anyone that the Magomedov brothers are closely connected with Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich, and through him with Prime Minister Medvedev himself. Ziyavudin Magomedov was a classmate of Dvorkovich in the economics department of Moscow State University and has since maintained close friendships with him. Many experts generally believe that without a sly premier, the Magomedovs would not have been able to put together such an impressive financial and economic empire.
Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dvorkovich and businessman Magomedov
As the newspaper "Tomorrow" notes, it was Dvorkovich who introduced Ziyavudin Magomedov to Prime Minister's wife Svetlana, who was so flattered that she hurried to introduce the businessman to her husband. The media has repeatedly reported that since 2008, "he is not Dimon" has become the mysterious patron of the Summa group. When Medvedev was president of the country, the brainchild of hot mountaineers acquired profitable assets and straddled a fat horse of government orders. They put a paw on the Novorossiysk Commercial Sea Port, the construction of the Kazan football stadium for the World Cup, the laying of the ESPO-2 pipeline, the reconstruction of the Bolshoi Theater, the not-built Kyzyl-Kuragino railway in Tyva and much more. In the government’s lobbies, there is even the opinion that enterprising brothers are “Medvedev’s wallets,” and the spouse calling people to be attached, because there is no money in the treasury, even allegedly the owner of Summa’s stake in 20 percent.
In the Summa group, for many years Alexander Budberg, a board member of the Institute of Contemporary Development (INSOR), ex-chairman of the executive committee of the board of trustees of the Bolshoi Theater, a friend of Dvorkovich and the unforgettable husband of the press secretary of the Prime Minister Natalia Timakova, headed the external relations for many years. In March 2015 of the year, information for the media was drained, mentioning almost half a million euros of real estate abroad, almost three million euros of undeclared currency accounts, Cyprus offshore companies and a residence permit in Latvia with a husband close to Medvedev.
Back in the distant 2000, Alexander Budberg became one of the founders of the company "Omnes". Soon her clients were very many people from the liberal group. For example, Rosnano, in the person of not to the night of the commemorated Chubais, who signed contracts for the provision of a number of costly services with the Budberg company. Among the partners of Omnes was the company Polymetal, in which the wife of Dvorkovich worked tirelessly as deputy general director. Then, on the horizon, there appeared "Trasneft", where Dvorkovich himself was sitting on his pants on the board of directors. Among the clients of Budberg, the structures of the head of the Central Bank Elvira Nabiullina surfaced.
Natalya Timakova, a spokeswoman for Medvedev, is a link between her unsinkable chief and a group of his liberal advisers from the Institute for Contemporary Development (INSOR), eager to accelerate reforms. By this acceleration they, however, do not understand the need for the growth of industrial production and the strengthening of the social sphere, but the further squandering of large state assets under the guise of privatization, the invention of new taxes, an increase in the retirement age, etc. Dmitry Medvedev is chairman of the INSOR Board of Trustees. On the posts of his deputies, many figures, known from the horrible Yeltsin past, appeared. Among them, Leonid Reiman and Elvira Nabiullina, and in the rank of chairman of the board - Igor Yurgens. Previously, this figure appeared as an ardent hater of the Russian people. “What innovations are there, what industry! Russia's destiny is to export oil and other raw materials! Forget about the rest!” - he declared. And here is another pearl of Yurgens, worthy of falling into the treasury of the all-Russian Smerdyakovschiny: "Russians are hindering Russia: the majority of our compatriots live in the last century and do not want to develop ... Russians are still very archaic. In the Russian mentality, the community is higher than the personality ... Most of the (people) are in partial disqualification ... The other part is general degradation. " The INSOR board also includes such bison of Yeltsinism and frantic adherents of monetarism, such as Yevgeny Gontmakher, Ruslan Greenberg, Vladimir Mau and Alexander Budberg.
Natalia Timakova also showed herself as a lobbyist for the interests of many oligarchs and large bosses such as Anatoly Chubais, Valentin Yumashev, Alexander Mamut, Mikhail Fridman from the Alpha group and many others. April 4, Friedman’s long-term partner Petr Aven, said in an interview with Dozhd about the arrest of the Magomedov brothers, “when people are arrested, it’s unpleasant.” What is nice when it's time to think about where to run from Russia? You cannot go to England, they will get there with some kind of gas “Novice” or a collar for gaming people with unconventional orientation.
By the way, director Nikita Mikhalkov in August 2017 of the year directly accused Medvedev’s press secretary, Natalia Timakova, of “latent Russophobia.” “With its help, under the cover of democracy, destructive processes are underway,” he noted, referring to the concern that Timakova takes to the malicious Yeltsin Center, or as it is called by the people, Alkash Center.
5 April Arkady Dvorkovich refused to comment on rumors about his support for the business of the Magomedov brothers. “I don’t comment on this topic,” he told the Izvestia journalist. But in his acidic physiognomy it was possible to understand that the affairs of Medvedev’s “right hand” were not very promising, as was probably his chief’s. Indeed, on the eve of the formation of a new cabinet, the liberal group in the government, which always lived with a focus on its interests abroad, and sometimes for the sake of the interests of this foreign country, lost one of the largest wallets.
Former head of the Main Directorate of International Military Cooperation of the Ministry of Defense of Russia, one of the authors of the famous throw on Pristina in 1999, General L.G. Ivashov back in August 2017 noted: "And, of course, today at the tactical level in the medium term, in Washington and especially in New York, they are very afraid that Mr. Medvedev will be overthrown from his post."
Many analysts say that the attack on the Magomedov brothers with an eye to Dvorkovich and Medvedev himself was from a camp of patriotic security officials in the leadership of the country who were sick of a whistle in the economic bloc of the government when budget funds are taken out of Russia and not invested in the development of their own economy when outright thieves and haters of Russia sit in the financial and economic bloc of the executive power.
Russian economist and political scientist Mikhail Delyagin, in May 2016, in an interview with the online publication Znak, noted that Putin tolerates government liberals "in order to have acceptable relations with the West", but when "he sees that the interests of the West are objectively incompatible with our existence, he will be engaged in ensuring the independent development of Russia and will become a patriot not only in foreign policy, but also in the socio-economic sphere. "
The West has finally thrown off its masks against Russia and has shown that it sees our country only in a flawed and humiliated state, as it was in the 90s. Consequently, the time for compromises with liberals and Westerners has passed. So isn't it time for our president to shed these weights that are slowing the rise of the country's economy, and Russia itself? The blow to the Magomedov brothers instills great optimism about this.
