Kremlin is not aware of Presidential Administration and Shakro Molodoy's relationship
Dmitry Peskov also told the investigation of the well-known kingpin's case is not under the control of Vladimir Putin.
The presidential spokesman commented on previously published in Novaya Gazeta information that some of the Presidential Administration worked with the thief in law Zakhar Kalashov (Shakro Molodoy). At least, he said, due-to-case check was not carried out in the Administration. The presidential spokesman also responded negatively to the question of whether the investigation of this case is under the supervision of the Russian President Vladimir Putin. "No, it is not," - he said.
Peskov said he did not know anything about the loss of documents on the criminal case of Zakhar Kalashov. "We do not know anything about any loss and it's unlikely that it can be considered as a matter of the Kremlin and the Kremlin Administration," - Peskov told reporters. Missing materials came under Golden Palace casino’s despoliation in the early 2000s.
Earlier, a source of Rosbalt reported that in 2015 investigators were trying to charge the crowned thief Shakro Molodoy under Art. 210 of the Russian Criminal Code. However, when the casino's case was separated, the first Deputy Head of the ICR Main Department in Moscow Denis Nikandrov removed the case materials to the Department of Criminal Investigations in the Central Administrative District. From there they were forwarded to the Tagansky district Investigative Department.
The question in the case of the casino’s despoliation resurfaced again after the arrest of senior ICR officers. As a result, the OCG creation case against Kalashov was not opened and no one knows where the case files are now.
Now, the Golden Palace hotel complex is controlled by Kalashov’s colleague Konstantin Manukyan and the kingpin himself used the hotel as his office after returning to Russia from the Spanish prison.
The 55-year-old spouses Shevchenko and their 29-year-old son were engaged in construction business and trade in jewelry. In addition to the criminal redistribution of business, the investigation does not rule out robbery.
