How Kenes Rakishev and Zhanna Kim initiated the Rochdelskaya massacre

“Rucriminal” has access to transcripts of court hearings and a criminal case involving police officers unjustly accused of not intervening in the Elements restaurant shootout involving its owner, Zhanna Kim.

From these materials, it is evident that Kim is not truthful during interrogation about the alleged extortion at the Elements. When she contacted the 02 service from the restaurant, she mentioned ongoing negotiations for repair payments. Additionally, she claims to have a legal aid agreement with Budantsev. However, the materials indicate that she saw the restaurant for the first time and views it as belonging to “Kenes’s man.”

This concerns Kazakh businessman Kenes Rakishev, a friend of Kim and a sponsor of her projects, including the Elements restaurant. According to a source from “Rucriminal” familiar with the situation, Kim’s stance is influenced by pressure from both security forces and Kenes Rakishev. They had to furnish necessary evidence, influence the police, and rationalize the use of military weapons and the shooting by Eduard Budantsev, who claimed that he resorted to shooting due to police inaction. Surprisingly, the Kazakh businessman was never interrogated regarding the case. Kenes Rakishev appears to shield himself, being the one who dispatched Budantsev for a “showdown” with Kim’s adversaries, making him culpable for the bloodshed. It’s noteworthy that the Kazakh businessman was not even questioned about the case, and “Rucriminal” plans to release these materials in several installments.

Let’s recap that lawyer Eduard Budantsev and his associates clashed with “authority” Andrey Kochuykov (Italian) and his group at the “Elements” restaurant. Following the shootout, Andrei Kochuikov, the “right hand” of the thief in law Zakhar Kalashov, found himself in pre-trial detention. Attempts to secure his release through bribery to ICR officers failed, leading to the incarceration of both the “authority” and members of the TFR and Kalashov’s group. New materials obtained by the editorial office indicate that the instigator of this entire incident is Zhanna Kim’s close friend, the Kazakh oligarch Kenes Rakishev. Initially, Zhanna, seemingly carrying out Rakishev’s directive, provoked Kochuikov into a conflict. Subsequently, Rakishev dispatched lawyer Budantsev with military weapons for a decisive confrontation with the “authority.” Essentially, it was at Rakishev’s behest that this entire chain of events unfolded, culminating in the arrest of Kalashov and the ICR officers.

Excerpt from Budantsev’s interrogation:

“Please explain which phone numbers you used on 12/14/2015 and which phone numbers did you directly use on 12/14/2015?

And here is an excerpt from the recording that Jeanne Kim herself made at the place of the “showdown”.

It is clear from the recording that there was a normal business conversation about debt. Until Kim (F) spoke with Rakishev. After that, she began to lie that she was being threatened and that there were armed people in the restaurant.
