As the practice of the last quarter of the century has shown, a certain category of citizens has emerged who leave their countries, most often in their homeland, waiting for a solid term for corruption and other equally serious crimes.
And the main thing in such a phenomenon is a love for a change in political orientation, depending on the circumstances. Most of those who are now sitting out somewhere in Europe, a couple of years ago, could not think that they would become zealous defenders of human rights and constitutional legality. Especially when these rights and lawfulness were violently violated, while engaged in criminal business in their homeland.
However, some of these cadres, from the post-Soviet space in the EU not only escape from their own justice, but also present themselves as fighters for democracy. One of these runaway Kazakh banker Mukhtar Ablyazov. It is known that he was charged with embezzlement of $ 7.5 billion from BTA Bank in three countries and 4 in money laundering. In his criminal activities, he relied on associates. Including in the media, which Ablyazov sponsored for many years. For example, such as Igor Vinyavsky. Speaking from the rostrum of the newspaper, where he was an editor, he branded Kazakhstan's power. And in the off hours with his wife moonlighting filming in porn. In various media reported how he, a democrat and human rights defender, in the form of an American marines raped a Muslim woman in a hijab. And in the role of a Muslim, his real wife was filmed. Scandalous and her intimate connection with the head of "Civic Activity" Muratbek Ketebaev looked. Then it became known to finance a fugitive banker of an information company against Kazakhstan. He received this fame when he once set fire to the office belonging to M. Ablyazov of the newspaper Respublika. And accused of blaming the Kazakh authorities.
But most of all M. Ketebaev succeeded in provocations with human victims - he is one of the main agitators to "go kill" during the tragic events in the Kazakh city of Zhanaozen. Then there were killed more than 100 civilians.
Once M. Ketebaev was detained in Spain at the request of Interpol. But they let go very quickly, even without the traditional collateral - an extraordinary court decision for Madrid.
Among the supporters of M. Ablyazov, his relatives.
The most famous are the family of another dissident, wanted in the homeland for corruption, former mayor of Almaty Viktor Khrapunov. As you know, their children were married. V.Khrapunov and his family live in Switzerland. Meanwhile, Ukraine is requesting the extradition of Ilyas Khrapunov, Victor's son, for alleged organization of a hacking hacking of the database of a law firm representing the interests of BTA Bank, which previously belonged to M.Ablyazov and with whom his legal problems are related. In Great Britain, linking the "Ablyazov affair" with the activities of I.Khrapunov, Khrapunov was forbidden to use property registered in the kingdom.
V.Khrapunov himself was under investigation by the American Themis, who is investigating the case of money laundering stolen by M.Ablyazov from Kazakhstan, through front companies opened by V.Khrapunov in the USA and actively buying real estate there. By the way, I.Khrapunov and his wife - the daughter of M.Ablyazova Madina - received unusual diplomatic posts as representatives of the Central African Republic in Geneva. The same passport and the wife of M. Ablyazov.
But his other relative, Syrym Shalabayev, the brother of M. Ablyazov's wife, fled to Lithuania during the trial in London. The authorities of Lithuania detained him at the request of Interpol. He is charged that he, together with M. Ablyazov and others, appropriated assets worth several billion US dollars in Kazakhstan, Ukraine and Russia), and then released and even granted him asylum from persecution. Just like M. Ketebaev in Spain.
Many observers of this play had a feeling that M.Ablyazov and his relatives, who had fled Kazakhstan banker, for some reason very much loved in Vilnius. At the same time remembering how very recently the authorities of Latvia refused to ex-mayor of Moscow Yuri Luzhkov in obtaining a residence permit. And this despite the fact that Luzhkov invested a lot of money in this country: putting money in the bank and buying up real estate. Moreover, law enforcement agencies of Latvia carefully checked the origin of Luzhkov's capital. But S. Shalabayev did not have any complaints. And this despite the fact that four countries (Kazakhstan, Russia, Ukraine and the United Kingdom) are looking for him for trial. In the latter, by the way, he was sentenced by the High Court of London to 18 months of imprisonment for contempt of court.
But all the same colleagues of M.Ablyazov most of all, why they love Poland. Here lives and the fan of porno-shootings Igor Vinyavsky with the spouse and M.Ketebaev. Poland granted him political asylum. It turned out a whole class of equally bright and unconventional supporters of a runaway banker. And there appeared in Warsaw a special fund for the protection of Ablyazov and destabilization in those countries where M. Ablyazov once worked, and where he derived stolen money.
This fund is managed by Ukrainian Lyudmila Kozlovskaya. In 2004 she was an active participant of the Orange Revolution in Ukraine and the leader of the campaign in support of the withdrawal of the Russian Black Sea Fleet from Sevastopol. And one day she beat the candidate for the post of President of Poland Bally Mazhets, who for many years opposed the presence in Poland of the foundation of the "Open Dialogue" and Warsaw's position on the protection of M. Ablyazov's interests.
Today, among the supporters of M. Ablyazov, there were still a few from the previously numerous crowd. A runaway banker does not think much about the fate of those who defended him, and who suffered for him.
When the well-known public figure in Kazakhstan V.Kozlov was convicted for ordering and for money M.Ablyazova organized rallies that grew into clashes with police in Kazakhstan's Zhanaozen, the customer simply turned away from him. No help, neither the convicted V.Kozlov, nor his family did not receive the will. As well as other former friends, who are no longer needed today. As, for example, Aidos Sadykov, recognized as "crazy" doctors, but paid by M.Ablyazov, as "defender of democracy». The retinue of Mukhtar Ablyazov is very specific. Among her, there are no people who have ever become famous for their honesty and incorruptibility. But a lot of schizophrenics, sexual perverts, corrupt people and just earning a fashionable theme in the game of democracy.
It is a pity only that European politicians actually swallow any bait with the right content, without thinking about what these fugitive persons from the East really are.
