Shakro Molodoy was charged with bribery and organized crime community creation
According to a source in law enforcement bodies, the Federal Security Service has all the evidence for this.
The Russian Federal Security Service possesses a sufficient evidentiary basis for charging the thief in law Zakhar Kalashov (Shakro Molodoy) under Articles 210 and 291 of the Russian Criminal Code (Creation of a Criminal Community and Bribe-Giving on an Especially Large Scale, respectively).
According to Rosbalt News Agency quoting a source in the law enforcement agencies, part of the evidence is based on recordings of conversations between the Chief of ICR Internal Security Directorate Maksimenko, accused of taking bribes, and his deputy Aleksandr Lamonov, and the other part – on the testimony of the Head of Kalashov's private security company Dmitry Zvontsev.
According to investigation, prior to March 4, 2016 Zakhar Kalashov indirectly transferred half a million euros to Colonels of Justice Maksimenko and Lamonov and Major General Nikandrov.
For the bribe, the senior investigators were to downgrade the accusation against Kalashov's henchman Andrey Kochuykov (the Italian), detained under Hooliganism, and who later became a defendant in the case of participation in a criminal organization (part 2 Art. 210 of the Russian Criminal Code).
Kochuykov was arrested shortly after the shootout on Rochdelskaya Street in Moscow, when two people were killed and six were injured as a result of confrontation between Shakro Molodoy's people and the former SOBR special police officer, the lawyer Eduard Budantsev.
Yesterday it became known that one of Budantsev's lawyers had a change of heart by taking sides with Kalashov, who had been detained for extortion, and is now taking steps to reclassify the latter's charges as arbitrariness. According to Kommersant, such a turn may jeopardize the criminal cases of not only Kalashov and his henchmen, but also those of the ICR officers Nikandrov, Lamonov, and Maksimenko, arrested on charges of abuse of official powers and bribe-taking.
