Akhmetov complaint against Izmaylovo Makhmudov Chernoy

(English below)

Начальнику УВД Мангыстауской области Приходько Н.И. от Ахметова Жараса Амангельдиновича, Директора ТОО “Актал Лтд”, проживающего в городе Актау, тел…

Ко мне, Ахметову Ж.А., в точение ноября месяца текущего года неоднократно с угрозами личной расправы обращались по телефону граждане Российской Федерации Махмудов Искандер и Кадыров Одыл.

Махмудов Искандер и Кадыров Одыл известны как представители полукриминального бизнеса, являются ближайшими сотрудниками небезызвестного Михаила Черного и тесно сотрудничают с Измайловской организованной преступной группировкой и одним из ее лидеров Антоном Малевским.

Сродства массовой информации России связывают с этими людьми заказные убийства Феликса Львова, Вадима Яфясова, Олега Кантора.

Группа Михаила Черного и Искандера Махмудова известна своими скандальными полукриминальными захватами ряда предприятий и России.. В свое время ими уже предпринимались попытки внедрения в Казахстан. В средствах массовой информации России указывалось на их связь с бывшим премьер – министром А.М. Кзжегельдиным. Однако их прошлые попытки не увенчались успехом.

Искандер Махмудов в настоящее время – генеральный директор Уральской горно-металлургической компании и отвечает за захват предприятий Уральского региона, используя незаконные методы.
Одыл Кадыров отвечает за связи между Измайловской ОПГ и казахстанскими организованными преступными группировками.

Группой английских и американских компаний подан иск в окружной суд г. Нью – Йорк к группе Михаилл Черного за использование незаконных методов конкуренции и завладения рядом предприятий в России, в том числе путем угрозы
личной физичоскои расправы.

Мое заявление прошу рассматривать не только как личное обращение, но и как обращение инвесторов, а том числе гражданина Израиля Джосефа Траума, вложившего в развитие нашего производства более 6 млн. долларов США, проявляющих обеспокоенность возможностью криминализации бизнеса в Казахстане, что безусловно скажется на международном авторитете нашей Республики. В частности г-н Траум планирет обратиться в правоохранительные органы Израиля с
просьбой обеспечения уголовного преследования возможных заказчиков противоправных действий в отношении меня.

“To the Head of the Department of Internal Affairs of the Mangystau region Prikhodko N.I. from Akhmetov Zharas Amangeldinovich, President of Aktal Ltd LLP, living in Aktau

Me, Mr. Zh.A. Akhmetov, during the course of November of the current year, was repeatedly contacted by the citizens of the Russian Federation Makhmudov Iskander and Kadyrov Odyl with threats of personal reprisals.

Makhmudov Iskander and Kadyrov Odil are known as representatives of the semi-criminal business, are the closest employees of the notorious Mikhail Chernoy, and work closely with the Izmailovo organized crime group and one of its leaders, Anton Malevsky.

The Russian media of Russia link these people with the assassinations of Felix Lvov, Vadim Yafyasov. Oleg Kantor.

The group of Mikhail Chernoy and Iskander Makhmudov is known for its scandalous semi-criminal seizures of a number of enterprises and Russia. Once they had already attempted to introduce them into Kazakhstan. The media in Russia pointed out their connection with the former Prime Minister A.M. Kzgegeldin. However, their past attempts have not succeeded.

Iskander Makhmudov is currently the CEO of the Ural Mining and Metallurgical Company and is responsible for seizing the enterprises of the Ural region using illegal methods. Odyl Kadyrov is responsible for connections between the Izmailovo organized criminal group and Kazakhstani organized criminal groups.

A group of British and American companies filed a lawsuit in the New York District Court against the group of Mikhail Chernoy for using illegal methods of competition and taking possession of a number of enterprises in Russia, including by threatpersonal physical violence.

I ask you to consider my application not only as a personal appeal, but also as an appeal by investors, including Israeli citizen Joseph Traum, who invested more than 6 million US dollars in the development of our production, who are concerned about the possibility of criminalizing business in Kazakhstan, which will certainly affect the image of our republic internationally. In particular, Mr. Traum plan to contact the Israeli law enforcement authorities with a request to ensure the prosecution of potential hiring party of the illegal actions commited against me….”

Rudi Giuliani’s donor linked to organized crime

A Russian emigré in New York who has lined up campaign funding for New York Mayor, Rudolph Giuliani, and given campaign donations to leading U.S. politicians, has suspected links to organized crime, The Associated Press reported Wednesday.

Together with his family and various businesses, Semyon “Sam” Kislin, 64, sank $46,250 into Giuliani’s 1993 and 1997 mayoral campaigns. He also helped organize key fundraising events for the New York mayor.

The Kislins or their businesses have also donated thousands of dollars to the election campaigns of President Bill Clinton, Democratic Senator Charles Schumer and former Republican Senator Alfonse D’Amato, and to the National Republican Congressional Committee, AP reported Wednesday.

Kislin is a member of New York City’s Economic Development Board. He is also a commodities trader with his own company – Trans Commodities Inc. – and a prominent figure in the Russian-Jewish emigré community in Brooklyn.

“I did a lot of fund-raising for Giuliani,” Kislin was quoted as saying by the Center for Public Integrity, a nonprofit, nonpartisan group based in Washington, D.C., which interviewed him as part of its own investigation. “He’s a good man, doing a good job for the city of New York.”

But a 1994 FBI intelligence report claims Kislin is a “member or associate” of a Brighton Beach crime operation headed by Vyacheslav “the Yaponchik” Ivankov. The Yaponchik got 10 years in prison in 1997 for extortion and for a marriage deemed fraudulent and aimed only at preventing his deportation.

The Center, citing the 1994 internal FBI report, also reported that Trans Commodities – along with Blonde Management Corp., a Manhattan-based company run by Kislin’s nephew Arik – co-sponsored a visa for one Anton Malevsky, a man the report alleged to have been a Russian hit man for Moscow’s Izmailovo crime gang.

And a 1996 Interpol report obtained by the Center for Public Integrity claims that Trans Commodities Inc. was used by Lev and Mikhail Chernoi, two Uzbek-born brothers who have taken over much of Russia’s metals business, for fraud and embezzlement. The Chernoi brothers have been accused by some Russian media of involvement in organized crime. They have never been convicted of a crime.

According to the Center for Public Integrity, Kislin said he hired Mikhail Chernoi to manage Trans Commodities Inc. from 1988 to 1992. “Mikhail Chernoi is the best man I ever knew,” Kislin told the Center, in remarks quoted as part of an investigative report posted on the Internet at www.publicintegrity.org.

The Center’s exhaustive report documented other questionable campaign contributions – among them $2,000 from the Kislins in 1995 to the Clinton-Gore campaign, and $2,750 in 1996 and 1997 contributions from the president of YBM Magnex to the National Republican Congressional Committee.

U.S. authorities say YBM Magnex was a money-laundering vehicle for Semyon Mogilevich, a Hungarian-based figure alleged to be an organized-crime boss.

The Center says it has been investigating how billions of dollars of money whisked out of Russia may have ended up in U.S. safe havens – and also, how “political campaigns … end up with equally questionable contributions as suspected Russian organized crime figures seek to move into the U.S. political mainstream.
