Prosecution called Zakhar Kalashov leader of underworld
The Prosecutor General's Office believes that the shootout on Rochdelskaya Street was not so much related to the conflict with hostess of the Elements restaurant Zhanna Kim, as to the raider ambitions of Kalashov.
The Prosecutor General's Office of the Russian Federation recognized Zakhar Kalashov, known as thief in law Shakro Molodoy, "the leader of the Russian criminal world." Such a statement was made during the court session on Tuesday, October 10, by a representative of the state prosecution.
According to her, Kalashov headed a criminal structure that brought him and his closest associates a significant income. In particular, the gang of Shakro Molodoy earned on raiding and extortion. A vivid example of this is the shooting on Rochdelskaya Street, which, according to the state prosecution, was caused not so much by the conflict with hostess of the Elements restaurant Zhanna Kim, as the media had previously written, as to Kalashov's raider ambitions, the Prosecutor's Office believes. At the same time, the official charge is reduced to two episodes of extortion.
The defendants themselves - Shakro Moloody and his right hand Andrey Kochuykov (The Italian) deny their guilt.
