Dear William Marshall:

This is a sixth interim response to your FOIA request dated and received in this Office
on May 29, 2018, in which you requested records from the Office of the Deputy Attorney
General (ODAG) relating to Fusion GPS, Nellie Ohr, and/or Christopher Steele, dating since
January 2016. This response is made on behalf of ODAG. This response also completes our
processing of material referred to OIP by OCDETF.

On December 19, 2018, April 15, 2019, May 1, 2019, May 13, 2019, and June 3, we
provided you with interim responses to your request. We have now completed processing an
additional 332 pages containing records responsive to your request. I have determined that 330
of these pages are appropriate for release with excisions made pursuant to Exemptions 3, 6,
and 7(E) of the FOIA, 5 U.S.C. § 552(b)(3), (b)(6), and (b)(7)(E), and copies are enclosed.
Additionally, I have determined that two pages should be withheld in full pursuant to
Exemptions 6 and 7(C).

Exemption 3 pertains to information exempted from release by statute, in this instance


10 U.S.C. § 130(b). Exemption 6 pertains to information the release of which would constitute
a clearly unwarranted invasion of the personal privacy of third parties. Exemption 7(C)
pertains to records or information compiled for law enforcement purposes, the release of which
could reasonably be expected to constitute an unwarranted invasion of the personal privacy of
third parties. Exemption 7(E) pertains to records or information compiled for law enforcement
purposes, the release of which would disclose certain techniques and procedures or guidelines
for law enforcement investigations or prosecutions.

For your information, Congress excluded three discrete categories of law enforcement
and national security records from the requirements of the FOIA. See 5 U.S.C. § 552(c) (2012
& Supp. V 2017). This response is limited to those records that are subject to the requirements
of the FOIA. This is a standard notification that is given to all our requesters and should not be
taken as an indication that excluded records do, or do not, exist.

If you have any questions regarding this response, please contact Michael Gerardi of
the Department’s Civil Division, Federal Programs Branch, at 202-616-0680.

Sincerely,

Timothy Ziese
Senior Reviewing Attorney

Vanessa R. Brinkmann
Senior Counsel

“Prior to this, there has been a series of four propaganda films produced and aired on Russian federal TV

Magnitsky’s Widow Asks Swiss Jewellery Company Chopard to Disassociate Itself From Moscow Film
Festival That Plans to Screen Anti-Magnitsky Propaganda Film

21 June 2016 – The widow of Sergei Magnitsky, the Russian lawyer killed in Russian police custody in
2009, has written to Karl-Friedrich Scheufele, CEO of Chopard, a super luxury Swiss watch and jewellery
company, asking for Chopard to reconsider its sponsorship of the Moscow Film Festival which recently
added Andrei Nekrasov's anti-Magnitsky propaganda film to its program on 23-30 June 2016.

“I urge you to not associate your fine brand and reputation of your company with the people who killed
my husband and benefited from the serious corruption he had uncovered, and to publicly disassociate with
the film festival unless its organizers remove this film from the program. This film has been thoroughly
discredited and described as propaganda,” said Sergei Magnitsky's widow in her letter to Chopard.

No reply from Chopard has been received.

The anti-Magnitsky film by Russian filmmaker Andrei Nekrasov has been endorsed by senior Russian
Government officials, including Russian Foreign Affairs Minister Sergei Lavrov and Russian General
Prosecutor Yuri Chaika. The film has been promoted by perpetrators and beneficiaries of the US$230
million fraud that Sergei Magnitsky exposed. These include: Pavel Karpov, the former Russian Interior
Ministry officer who had custody of the documents used in the crime; Andrei Pavlov, lawyer for the
Russian criminal group who took part in sham court proceedings as part of the fraud; and Denis Katsyv,
son of a Russian government official, whose assets have been seized in the US and Switzerland for
suspicion of laundering the proceeds of the US$230 million fraud.

“It is surprising that Chopard would associate itself with this sordid spectacle. They should withdraw their
funding for this effort. It’s one thing for compromised Russians to posthumously defame a Russian hero
who gave his life for his principles. It's entirely another when this is done relying on sponsorship funds
from a reputable Western company like Chopard,” said William Browder, leader of the global Magnitsky
395
Obtained via FOIA by Judicial Watch, Inc.
Justice movement.

The anti-Magnitsky film by Andrei Nekrasov is one in a series of Russian propaganda and intimidation
efforts seeking to fight Magnitsky sanctions and to avoid accountability for the torture and murder of
Magnitsky and for the US$230 million theft he had uncovered. Prior to this, there has been a series of four
propaganda films produced and aired on Russian federal TV stations in which Browder is portrayed as a
CIA agent working to destroy Russia. Other methods have included opening new criminal cases against
William Browder, as well as Russian anti-corruption blogger Alexei Navalny who has been vocally
supporting justice for Sergei Magnitsky.

Please have him or his

I need to also check if you will now be needing Marshall Center

else.

Dear

Thank you so much - I know you are wading through a ton of these travel
arrangements.

I'm afraid the flight from DC to Munich will not work for my schedule.
As I mentioned to Steve Monaco when I accepted his kind invitation, I have a
meeting in Washington on Feb 2 that I cannot miss. That is why I requested
a flight departing on the evening of Feb 2 from Washington, arriving in
Munich on Feb 3. Is it possible to arrange a flight leaving DC that
evening?

The return flight, of course, has no such time constraints, so I can take
the flights that you have proposed.

Thank you very much!

Sorry for the delay!

Attached you'll find tentative travel reservations for your trip to


Garmisch to speak at this event,
ALUM16103. Please ensure that your name is spelled correctly and exactly the
same as on your passport.

If everything is correct and all the necessary requirements for the


travel are met, please email me with the confirmation so
I can proceed with processing the ITO and purchasing the plane ticket.

Apologies for my delayed reply. Thanks again for sending us your


registration form. My colleague, (b)(6) per DOD (cc'd), will be in contact soon
to discuss your travel plans/itinerary.
I've also attached our current draft agenda with your speaking slot
indicated the morning of Thursday, 4 February. I'm sure Prof. Monaco will
contact you again to discuss the details of your presentation (if he hasn't
already). We currently expect over 70 participants from more than 45
countries worldwide to attend our event.

But back to your questions:


(b)(6) per DOD
1.) This should not be a problem can schedule your return flight for
7FEB and you would simply cover the additional days (starting from 5FEB)
with our Marshall Center Hotel (current discounted room rate is $40 a night)
prior to departing in either cash or credit card. We can schedule your
return transportation to Munich airport for 7FEB from the Marshall Center
Hotel. If you choose to spend the post-workshop days in Munich or at a
different hotel you would make your own return transportation arrangements.

2.) This is also possible, with some considerations:


- The contracted hotel for this event is our own Marshall Center Hotel (run
by Army Lodging) on our installation (3+ star equivalent). We can reserve a
larger room with a queen size bed for you and your wife. The additional cost
would be around $7.50 per night. The hotel room has a Computer with DSL
internet connection on the closed Marshall Center network (you cannot
connect your own device), Iron, Ironing Board, Umbrella (in closet),
Satellite TV, DVD player, Safe, Microwave, Refrigerator, DSN (military
network) Telephone. Free Wifi is also available in the common areas of the
hotel.
- We are legally prohibited from providing airport transportation for your
wife, so you would have to make arrangements for her transport to/from
Munich (options are rental car, train, shuttle service)
- We would have to add your wife to our installation access roster and would
need her passport information. She would have to carry her passport with her
whenever leaving the installation.
- Our Dining Facility is within walking distance to the hotel. Your wife
could pay for her meals via cash or credit card.

You may also consider reserving a room for your wife at another hotel (which
may offer more services and amenities). I've included a list of hotels in
our local area for your consideration. A nice hotel within walking distance
to the Marshall Center is the Rheinischer Hof Hotel (shown on the list).
You could also choose to stay at this other hotel with your wife and the
Marshall Center is able to reimburse you $40 a night from 2-5FEB. If you
want to do your own research on hotels/guest houses in our area and check
proximity to the Marshall Center, the address of our Center is:
Gernackerstrasse 2, 82467 Garmisch-Partenkirchen

Please contact (b)(6) per DOD or myself if you have any additional questions.
Thanks again.

Bruce, that can work--you might get here really late on the 2nd, or early on
the 3rd and then can jump in after rest, etc. This opens up a new
possibility--that we recast your presentation to be one of closing remarks
on the 4th. We wrap up this event on the morning of the 4th. I'm working
on confirming the UNODC to speak that morning on the UNCAC, the recent
conference of the parties to the convention, and sort of a "way ahead" view
on global corruption efforts.

Could we then use you to stress the importance of global cooperation in


developing corruption and TOC prosecutions? On exchanging information in
support of prosecutions? On pursuing assets of corrupt officials (and
traffickers) internationally? On committing the resources and the backing
to pursue the difficult cases (political will)?

I am revising the agenda right now, to reflect the speakers that have
confirmed. I'll send it you shortly. I think you'll see how closing
thoughts from a senior US official on the importance of global cooperation
could put a fine touch on the topics we will have discussed for 3 days.

Thanks,
Steve

I just want to provide a quick update: we've secured an AUSA from Detroit

Subject: Putin alleged OC ties described in UK Litvineko report out today

Morning all,

Some especially interesting sections in UK Judge Robert Owen’s report out today. The whole thing is
written in first person. Some particularly relevant OC excerpts (page 15):

3.12 I heard that it was whilst working for the Economic Security and Organised Crime Unit that Mr
Litvinenko first began to investigate the activities of the Tambov criminal group. This was an organised
crime group based in St Petersburg. It was led by Vladimir Kumarin, also known as Barsukov, and another
man called Alexander Malyshev. In the course of his investigations, Mr Litvinenko discovered evidence that
the Tambov group was engaged in smuggling heroin from Afghanistan via Uzbekistan and St Petersburg to
Western Europe. Even more significantly, he became convinced that there was widespread collusion
between the Tambov group and KGB officials, including both Vladimir Putin and Nikolai Patrushev.

and (page 212):

Chapter 4: Organised crime

9.20 As I have described above, the fight against organised crime had been one of Mr Litvinenko’s
preoccupations since the start of his career in the Committee for State Security (KGB). His investigations
into the activity of Russian crime gangs, and in particular the Tambov/Malyshev group based in St
Petersburg, also revealed to him the extent of the collusion (as he saw it) between organised crime and
members, including senior members, of the FSB.
9.21 Mr Litvinenko sought to expose these links, in particular in his book The Gang from the Lubyanka,
which contained detailed allegations of collusion between FSB officers and organised crime.
9.22 Further, Mr Litvinenko passed information to the Mitrokhin Commission alleging that Semion
Mogilevich, apparently one of the leaders of Russian organised crime, was an FSB agent with a
769
Obtained via FOIA by Judicial Watch, Inc.
longstanding personal relationship with President Putin.
9.23 Finally, I have also heard evidence that towards the end of his life Mr Litvinenko was assisting the
Spanish authorities with investigations that they were conducting against members of Russian organised
crime groups, and that he thought it possible that he might give evidence against them in court.
9.24 It follows from this short summary that a theory that Mr Lugovoy and Mr Kovtun killed Mr Litvinenko
on the orders of one or more members of Russian crime gangs would not be implausible.
9.25 That theory, however, is not supported by the evidence that is available to me. Detective Inspector
(DI) Mascall stated that the police investigation has not uncovered any evidence linking Mr Mogilevich
directly to the poisoning.3 More broadly, none of the evidence suggests that Mr Lugovoy and Mr Kovtun
were commissioned to kill Mr Litvinenko by members of crime gangs. More than that, I am satisfied for
reasons that I shall describe below that Mr Lugovoy and Mr Kovtun in fact received their instructions from
another source.
9.20 As I h

·
· Former Russian spy died in 2006 after drinking radioactive tea
· Russia says case was `politicized' and `soured' relationship
·
·
· Russian President Vladimir Putin“probably” approved the 2006 murder of Alexander Litvinenko,
using two government agents to poison the dissident spy, according to a London judge.
Forensic evidence indicates Andrei Lugovoi and Dmitry Kovtun killed Litvinenko by spiking his tea with a
rare radioactive substance, most likely under the direction of the FSB security service, Judge Robert Owen
said in the report published in London Thursday.

"Members of the Putin administration, including the president himself and the FSB, had motives for taking
action against Mr. Litvinenko, including killing him," Owen said. "President Putin’s conduct towards Mr.
Lugovoi suggests a level of approval for the killing."
Litvinenko, a critic of the Kremlin who lived in the U.K. capital, died about three weeks after ingesting the
radioactive polonium. The 44-year-old blamed his death on Putin in an impassioned statement from his
hospital bed.
“All the evidence points in one direction,” Owen said in a summary. “When they killed Mr. Litvinenko, they
were acting on behalf of someone else.”

Strained Relations
Since the inquiry began in January 2015, Anglo-Russian diplomatic relations have sunk to their lowest
point since the Cold War and Thursday’s report may further strain the relationship. The investigation
pored over CCTV footage that retraced Litvinenko’s final weeks, and examined his complicated
relationships with British spy agencies and oligarchs.
“We regret that a purely criminal case was politicized and soured the overall atmosphere in the bilateral
relations,” Maria Zakharova, Russia’s Foreign Ministry spokeswoman, said in a statement. “It’s evident
that halting the coroner’s inquiry and starting ‘public hearings’ had a clear political motivation.”
The Russian currency was 3.6 percent weaker at 84.487 per dollar after the announcement. It earlier fell
to a record 85.999.
U.K. Home Secretary Theresa May condemned Russia’s failure to bring those responsible to justice over
the years. Both Lugovoi and Kovtun have had their assets frozen, she said in a statement.
“This was a blatant and unacceptable breach of the most fundamental tenets of international law and
civilized behavior,” May said in the House of Commons. "We have and will continue to demand that the
Russian government account for the role of the FSB in this case.”
Since 2010 “Russia has become more authoritarian, aggressive and nationalist,” May said. “We must
protect the U.K. and her interests from Russia-based threats, working closely with our allies in the EU and
NATO.”
Enemies
The original inquest into Litvinenko’s death started in 2006 and then adjourned pending criminal
investigations. A subsequent inquest in 2013 was held back by procedural delays and its investigative
powers were limited by national-security concerns.
RIA Novosti reported that Russia sees serious consequences for ties with the U.K. after the verdict, citing
an unidentified person who called the verdict “illegitimate.”
“The appearance of this report in this context, with names, is very serious, said analyst Alexei Makarkin of
the Moscow-based Center for Political Technologies. “It’s another question how the British government will
react to this. There could be harsher measures or less severe ones.”
It could be another knock into Russia’s reputation after Moscow-backed rebels were accused of July 2014
downing of a Malaysian airliner over southeastern Ukraine, he said.
Radiation Trail
The murder was “an attack on the heart of Britain, our values and our society,” the leader of the
opposition Liberal Democrat party, Tim Farron, said in an e-mailed statement. “I call for EU travel bans,
asset freezes and coordinated action to deal with those who committed this evil assassination.”
On his deathbed Litvinenko told London police he suspected Lugovoi and Kovtun were responsible for his
poisoning as they had meet several weeks earlier in an upmarket hotel. Later forensic tests showed the
three men left a trail of polonium across London.
"It would appear that Mr. Litvinenko was alive to the possibility that he had been deliberately poisoned
from the first days of his illness," Owen said in the report, which has taken around six months to publish.
Litvinenko lived an "eventful" life when he moved to the U.K. in 2000, he said.
"The evidence suggest that in the course of such activities, and just as he had in Russia, Mr. Litvinenko
may have made some dangerous enemies," Owen wrote.
Army Training
Litvinenko trained with the Russian army and was recruited into the KGB spy agency in 1987. He served
with the agency in the first Chechen conflict and was allegedly responsible for war crimes, said Robin Tam,
a lawyer for the inquiry.
The spy stayed with the agency as it was broken up after the collapse of the Soviet Union, and later
formed into the Federal Security Service, or FSB. Before his death, Litvinenko was close to Boris
Berezovsky, a one-time billionaire who was found hanging dead in a bathroom in his house outside
London in 2013.

Litvinenko exposed a plot in the 1990s by Russian authorities to murder Berezovsky, announcing it at a
press conference in Russia. This was an act that his former FSB colleagues considered to be a “gross
betrayal,” Tam said. The former spy pointed to Moscow after being poisoned.
“I am, of course, very pleased that the words my husband spoke on his death bed when he accused Mr.
Putin of his murder have been proved true in an English court with the highest standards of independence
and fairness,” his wife, Marina Litvinenko, said outside the court Thursday. She said all Russian
intelligence officers should be removed from the Russian embassy in London and for targeted economic
and travel sanctions at those responsible.

Global Countering Transnational Organized Crime (CTOC)


Alumni Community of Interest (COI) Workshop:
Examining Anti-Corruption Policies, Measures and Solutions
1 – 4 February 2016, Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany
Sponsored by Alumni Programs, College of International and Security Studies
George C. Marshall European Center for Security Studies
BACKGROUND & PURPOSE: Corruption is a global phenomenon, permeating all levels of society, and
is simply defined by Transparency International as the abuse of entrusted power for private gain.
Corruption far exceeds the damage caused by any other single crime. According to World Bank estimates,
more than $1 trillion are paid in bribes every single year.
During our resident course on Countering Transnational Organized Crime (formerly “Countering Narcotics
& Illicit Trafficking”), corruption is identified as playing a dual-role: organized criminal activity depends
on it and it also obstructs our full execution of CTOC measures. Participants in our program recognize
corruption as one of the primary obstacles that they face in prosecuting organized criminal groups. A lack
of political will to confront corruption is often cited as one of the main reasons why corruption persists
globally.
Our shared experience demonstrates that corruption can only be kept in check if representatives from
government, business and civil society work together to develop standards and procedures they all support.
Countering corruption truly requires a comprehensive approach that addresses the five pillars of Detection,
Governance, Prevention, Prosecution, and Recovery.
This COI event is our fifth under the Program on Countering Transnational Organized Crime and is the
second COI workshop since our program transitioned to a global program. The workshop will include
alumni participants from the Marshall Center (primarily our CTOC program), as well as alumni from other
U.S. Department of Defense Regional Centers.
COI events are an opportunity for continued interaction and cooperation among the alumni network, and an
opportunity to examine in detail a topic relevant to CTOC. This Marshall Center workshop for Regional
Center alumni worldwide serves as a forum to examine the global scourge of corruption and review
effective national, regional, and international anti-corruption approaches, measures, programs and policies.

OBJECTIVES:
Overall objectives of this CTOC Alumni COI workshop are to:
• Examine comprehensive approaches to countering corruption, to include best practices and effective anti-
corruption measures, programs, and policies
• Develop a functionally-based, globally-networked group of security sector professionals to generate
sustained communication and facilitate concrete actions in countering security threats
• Operationalize the network of CTOC-focused alumni from the Marshall Center and other Regional
Centers by developing and strengthening ties between alumni, encouraging the exchange of ideas and
collaboration, and enabling a platform for partners and stakeholders to engage with, support, and elicit
feedback from alumni

Wow!!!
Of course I'd love to see Garmisch-Partenkirchen [in the snow]
A ticket for me might cost a pretty penny if you've used up your miles. Looks as if flights to either
Innsbruck or Munich costs about $2400
Also, don't you have to wedge in other trips around that time?

Dear Alumni: WELCOME BACK TO THE MARSHALL CENTER!

Travel Arrangements:

Marshall Center funded participants will receive information regarding their airline tickets for travel to

Munich from their contact at the U.S. Embassy in their respective country or directly from the Marshall Center
(Point of Contact (b)(6) per DOD ). Any changes in the flight itinerary (for both arrival and departure flights)
must be coordinated through the Marshall Center travel office. You are also responsible for keeping the
Marshall Center informed of any changes in your flight itinerary to prevent complications with airport
transportation. All itinerary changes within 72 hours prior to arrival should be reported to one of the Points of
Contact listed at the top of this document.

All other participants not funded by the Marshall Center are considered self-payers and should make their own

flight arrangements to Munich (or other travel arrangements bringing them directly to Garmisch-Partenkirchen).

Air Arrival and Departure:

Arrival (Funded Participants): The Marshall Center will provide your transportation from Munich

International Airport to the hotel in Garmisch-Partenkirchen. Transportation will be by sedan, minivan, or bus

and contracted driver (the drive will take app. 1 ½ - 3 hours depending on weather/traffic). You will be met by a
Marshall Center driver/representative carrying a sign with the Marshall Center seal. Please look for the person

with this sign as you enter the arrival area (outside the baggage claim area) of Terminal 1 or 2.

Please wait at your arrival area. If after 15 minutes you have still not seen anyone please contact the Marshall

Center Transportation Coordinator (Mr. Lionel Graham) under Mobile Phone: +49 (0)172 525 6676. You will
receive further instructions.

Please DO NOT TAKE A TAXI OR TRAIN as the Marshall Center cannot reimburse this expense.

Self-Payers: You must arrange for your own transportation. For airport transportation from Munich to

Garmisch, the recommended (and often quickest) transport is via railway/train. From the Munich Airport, you

can take the S1 or S8 railway (depart every 20 minutes) to the Munich main train station and board a train to

Garmisch (trains depart roughly every 30 minutes depending on time of day). You can purchase a ticket at
Munich Airport for the entire trip, cost: app. €19-27 one way (simply follow the S-Bahn/Train signs to the
Deutsche Bahn (DB) service area). Airport and railway information can be viewed on the following website:
http://www.munich-airport.de/en/consumer/index.jsp
Train information and costs are on the following website: http://www.bahn.de/p en/view/index.shtml
Finally, taxis at the Garmisch train station can then transport you to your hotel in less than 5 minutes.

There are also several fee-based shuttle & bus services available that operate between Munich and Garmisch-
Partenkirchen. Two such services can be booked online at: http://www.airport-shuttle-zugspitzland.de/ and

http://meinfernbus.de/en .

Departure (Funded Participants): Your personal departure time and date will be listed on the “Departure
Information Board” in the coffee break area (near the plenary room) during the workshop. Please check the list
and confirm your flight and departure information. Please be on time for the vehicle departure to the airport so

others are not delayed and please ensure that you have your entire luggage with you at the time of departure.

Note: All pickup times are scheduled by the Marshall Center Transportation Coordinator and can occur up to 4+
hours prior to airline departure (to account for potential traffic/weather and guarantee your timely arrival for
check-in).

Lost Luggage: In case of lost luggage please have it forwarded to:

Directions from Munich International Airport to the George C. Marshall Center

From the Munich Airport take Autobahn A92 towards Munich. At the junction of A92 with A9 take

Autobahn A9 towards Munich. Stay on this Autobahn through Munich and follow the signs directing

you to Garmisch-Partenkirchen and A95. Once you are on A95 on the southwest side of Munich you

stay on this Autobahn until it ends and turns into B2. Stay straight on the B2 which will take you

through Oberau and the Farchant Tunnel. After the tunnel keep right towards Garmisch/Reutte. After

entering the town stay on the main road, which turns into Zugspitzstrasse, which will take you to

Sheridan Kaserne and the Marshall Center. The Marshall Center will be on your left at a traffic light

controlled intersection where Zugspitzstrasse crosses Gernackerstrasse. To get to Artillery Kaserne

you will just go straight through this traffic light and take a right at the very next traffic light which will

Accompanied by Japanese Prime Minister Shinzō Abe, Donald Trump attended the extravagant

70th birthday party of long-time friend Steve Schwarzman in Palm Beach, Florida on Saturday

night. According to reports, Schwarzman, who is the CEO of global private equity firm The

Blackstone Group, is committed to serving as a key advisor to Trump with the intention of

meeting “frequently” on issues of strategy and policy. Schwarzman made headlines recently

for having traveled with Trump on Air Force One, and after his family housekeeper was pushed

in front of a subway car and killed in Times Square back in November.

In recent days, a great deal of media attention has been paid to Trump’s National Security

Advisor General Michael Flynn for his possibly illegal discussions with the Kremlin prior to

Inauguration Day in which he may have projected the Trump administration’s intention to lift

sanctions on Russia once Trump assumed office. However, the real story here may in fact be

Schwarzman.

After weeks of sifting through financial disclosures and filing records, a group of concerned

citizens investigating Trump’s ties to Russia has uncovered evidence to suggest that the two

companies involved in the Rosneft deal have ties to the Koch Brothers and Donald Trump

himself. Indeed, Schwarzman’s Blackstone Group may now hold a stake in Rosneft, Russia’s

government-owned oil company that famously sold 19.5% of its stock to two investors this past

December: the first was Glencore, to which evidence suggests the Koch Brothers are connected,

and the second, a mysterious Qatar-based nest doll of shell corporations, which evidence

suggests is ultimately owned by Schwarzman.

Schwarzman’s possible connection to Rosneft puts Mr. Trump dangerously close to allegations

brought forth in the controversial Russian dossier that suggested he was offered a 19 percent

stake in the oil company in exchange for lifting American sanctions against Russia. If Donald

Trump was involved with the Rosneft deal it would constitute a high crime of treason worthy of

impeachment and have deeper ramifications about Trump’s knowledge with regards to cyber

interference in the presidential election.

The Money Trail

Obtained via FOIA by Judicial Watch, Inc.

The Panama Papers, which leaked in 2016, revealed Russian President Vladimir Putin’s

penchant for pilfering assets into off-shore shell companies.

On Sunday, December 11, 2016, Reuters reported that Russia signed a deal with Glencore, a

commodities trader based out of London, and the Qatar Investment Authority (QIA), Qatar’s

government-owned holding company that conducts foreign investments, to sell a 19.5 percent

stake in oil major Rosneft. The privatization deal was called the “largest in Russia’s history” by

Rosneft Chief Executive Igor Sechin.

Right off the bat, it should be noted that none other than the Koch Brothers have an investment

with Glencore.

On January 10, according to a Russian news publication known as RBC, 19.5 percent of Rosneft

shares were moved to a Singapore-based company known as QHG Shares Pte Ltd, which

Rosneft confirms owns 19.5 percent of its shares as of February 1, 2017. This company

represents a consortium of Glencore and QIA.

This is where things get interesting: QHG Shares Pte. Ltd. is itself made up of a series of shell

organizations and front companies.

The Qatar shell corporations that make up the financial backing for the Rosneft deal include

QHG Cayman. http://www.rbc.ru/business/10/01/2017/587507a39a7947c61978c0d2

Among them is a little known organization based out of the Cayman Islands known as QHG

Cayman Limited, which along with several other companies makes up the financial backing for

the Rosneft deal in December. More of QHG Cayman’s filing history can be found with the UK

Companies House Filing Records.

The Link to Schwarzman


The Blackstone Group, for which Mr. Schwarzman serves as co-founder and CEO, acquired

Intertrust, a Dutch trust firm, in 2012. Intertrust has a series of assets located in the Cayman

Islands, including Walker’s Management Services (WMS). Walker’s shares an address with

and registered a Limited Liability Partnership called QHG Cayman Limited on December 16,

2016, only nine days after the Rosneft deal took place and just before the assets were moved to

QHG Shares Pte. Ltd.

If this money trail is correct, it would mean Schwarzman now has an interest in the 19.5 percent

Rosneft stake.

The owners of QHG Cayman Limited have not been independently verified.

This comes amidst Friday’s explosive report from the Washington Post that Trump’s National

Security Advisor, General Michael Flynn, had communicated with Sergey Kislyak, a Russian

ambassador, about lifting sanctions against Russia a month before Donald Trump assumed

office. Flynn had previously denied such a conversation occurred. The Washington Post report

alleged that the conversations “were interpreted by some senior U.S. officials as an inappropriate

and potentially illegal signal to the Kremlin that it could expect a reprieve from sanctions that

were being imposed by the Obama administration in late December to punish Russia for its

alleged interference in the 2016 election.”

Reuters ran a detailed report on how Russia was able to sell its massive oil stake without

disclosing the buyers, a mystery that has sparked the fascination of people around the world,

particularly after it was widely reported that former president Barack Obama and Mr. Trump

Document ID: 0.7.18991.6573-000001


Obtained via FOIA by Judicial Watch, Inc.

were both briefed last month regarding a 35-page intelligence dossier prepared by well-known

British intelligence agent Christopher Steele. The controversial “Russia dossier” was

subsequently leaked, a move that was criticized because of the unconfirmed nature of the report

and the salacious allegations it contained.

One such allegation, was explicit: Donald Trump would receive up to a 19 percent share of

Rosneft in exchange for lifting sanctions placed on Russia. While the Russian Dossier has not

been confirmed in full, CNN reported on Friday that U.S. investigators have corroborated

portions of the dossier.

Is Schwarzman’s connection to the Rosneft deal merely coincidence?

A group of amateur investigators on Twitter made up of Marcus Carlsson, Atlee Solomon,

Jennifer Cassell, and myself have been working for weeks to get to the bottom of this money

trail.

Wikipedia Excerpt:

Paul M. Joyal (born 1954) is an American security analyst and media commentator who frequently
comments on political and security matters concerning Russia and former Soviet countries. A critic of the
administration of Russian president Vladimir Putin, in late February 2007 Joyal told Dateline NBC that the
murder of former KGB agent Alexander Litvinenko served as a warning to all critics of the Putin
government.[1]

A few days later, on March 1, Joyal was shot and wounded outside his home in Adelphi, Maryland. The
Washington Post reports that the attack is under investigation by the FBI.[2][3] Earlier that evening, Joyal
had dined with former KGB general Oleg Kalugin; Kalugin (whom the Russian Government accused of
being a US agent) later told the Washington Post that he was not sure whether the attack was politically
motivated.[4]

Tamince’s brother defends Arif over yacht orgy


Fettah Tamince has a brother named Fesih Tamince. He testified at a February

2011 hearing about the yacht orgy. He appears to have claimed, “We are also

engaged in the jewelry business. They [the Russian and Ukrainian girls] came for

catalog shoots.”1

Tracking the origins of claims that Arifov was part of the Uzbek

mafia

Andrey Kalitin, Zero Hour

These claims appear most abundantly in the 2008 biography of the Chernoy

brothers by Andrey Kalitin called Zero Hour, 2 which is a tendentious source.

 The book appeared amidst a UK lawsuit filed in 2006 between Oleg Deripaska

and Mikhail Chernoy.


 Chernoy claimed in a separate lawsuit that Deripaska had commissioned

Kalitin’s book as part of a defamation campaign against him. 34 Chernoy

submitted materials including purported emails involving Kalitin.


 Kalitin countered that most of the emails attributed to him are forgeries, with a

few genuine documents included to fool readers. 5


 Russian blogger Solomin wrote in 2007 that not all the dirt on Chernoy was

necessarily dug up by Deripaska. Some of it may have been publicized by other

émigré businessmen such as former Yukos officer Nevzlin, Arkadiy Gaydamak,

Lev Levayev, Boris Berezovskiy, or others seeking to solidify their position in

Israel by dissociating themselves from the "Russian mafia."6

 Kalitin was shot and wounded in June 2007, just before publication of his book.

Chernoy denied involvement and suggested that the shooting was faked.7

Assuming Kalitin was not making up the information about Arifov, where did

he get it?
 “The press has often expressed the assertion,” he says, that the Chernoys

acquired their starting capital with help from from Uzbek crime bosses like

Gafur Rakhimov and Tofik Arifov, rather than from selling slippers.
 Kalitin continues, “In the Russian press there is practically no information about

Chernoy’s starting capital.” Rather, Kalitin pulls together facts from the brothers’

biography, such as a gap in their biographies from 1985, when they founded the

one of the first cooperatives in Uzbekistan, to 1992, when they cofounded TWG,

to suggest illicit activity.


 Kalitin says his findings are based on “spending a few weeks in the archives of

dozens of Soviet and Russian newspapers” and on talking with Uzbek

immigrants [in the UK? Israel? Russia?].


 He says the Chernoys’ 1980s cooperative was part of the Association of

Cooperatives and Small Enterprises (AKAMP), created by the Tashkent

Communist Party organization and headed by Gafur Rakhimov. AKAMP

members benefited from a special CPSU program that allowed enterprises to use

some of their export earnings to buy consumer goods abroad. The Chernoys

made big money by importing and reselling electronics.


 He says the Chernoys and Rakhimov became partners with Salim Abduvaliyev,

who was known in police files as an extortionist. He cites former Uzbek law

enforcement officers to say, “through Abduvaliyev, ties were maintained [by

whom? AKAMP? The Chernoys?] with “Shukhrat,” who was then the crime boss

of Tashkent.
 Kalitin then cites rumors and oft-repeated assertions in the press that say the

Chernoys’ cooperative was used to launder Salim and Gafur’s drug money.
 Kalitin cites the “second Uzbek case,” an early 1990s criminal case against the

sons of former Uzbek regional Communist party bosses, including the Chernoys’

sponsor Alimov. He says case materials showed money flows to neighboring

Chymkent Oblast, in Kazakhstan.


 Kalitin writes, “Tashkent oldsters will probably still remember the scandal

surrounding the so-called flower mafia,” which culminated in a knife battle in

Tashkent’s streets. “This story is thought to be linked with a redistribution of

spheres of influence in favor of a certain crime boss named Tofik (Tofik Arifov),
who now lives in Turkey and owns the most luxurious hotels of that country.”

 Kalitin cites official police information saying the Chernoys brought the goods

to Russia.. “From the look of things [судя по всему] drugs also went to these

regions together with the flowers.”


o This can be deduced from the fact that “these deliveries were

‘protected’ by so-called sportsmen, the same [Gafur] Rakhimov and

[Salim] Abduvaliyev.”
o “These regions” refers to Siberia and the Russian Far East, which

Kalitin calls the home territory of the Uzbek mafia.


 The sources for Kalitin’s book also included Peter Grinenko, a third-generation

émigré working in the Brooklyn prosecutor’s office, and FBI agent Ray Kerr,
 Kalitin had several interviews, starting in 1996, with New York-based Russian

crime figure Sam Kislin, who deeply resents Chernoy for doublecrossing him.

Kislin serves as an informant for the FBI, Kalitin says.


o Kislin said he met Chernoy in the late 1980s but, after threats from

Chernoy’s associates, quit his aluminum partnership with Chernoy in

1992.
o Kislin said his nephew Alik continued to work with Chernoy,.
o Does Kislin’s 1980s partnership with Tamir Sapir link him with Arif?

Does his 2000s era hostility to Chernoy taint his testimony?


 Kalitin cites a Chernoy interview in a Russian newspaper, where Chernoy says

he invested money in US real estate through Sam Kislin’s nephew Alik for 4-5

years. Chernoy claims he sold out at the peak, in 1998, but that he looked into

setting up a telecommunications business centered in Canada.


 Kalitin also cites a strategy document for the investigation of criminal case No.

117449, which was brought in the mid-1990s against Lev Chernoy but dropped.

The document was apparently shown to him by antimafia investigator

Lieutenant S. Glushenkov.
o The document read in part, “They say that Tashkent crime groups,

whose leaders were his [Lev’s] school friends, helped Lev and

Mikhail Chernoy.”
o “It is reported [Есть данные ] that the Tashkent crime family

allotted money for the development of his cooperative from its

common kitty [obshchak], but this is very dubious.”


o “They say Mikhail Chernoy contacted crime bosses like thief-in-law

Slava Yaponchik and ‘Otarik’ (Otari Kvantrishvili) through Uzbek

criminal authorities Gafur Rakhimov and Tofik Arifov. We have

already pointed this out….”


 This case was ongoing as of 1996. According to a German police summary of

a Swiss investigation, Moscow law enforcement asked Swiss investigators,

who had arrested Chernoy, to question him about aluminum theft (the

subject of case 117449) and fraud (case 81659). 8

 Glushenkov apparently “lost interest” in the case by 1998.

 The claims weighed in these materials from case 117449 also appear (without

any caveats) in two January 2003 articles in Satcor.ru.


 An article from January 3 cites an anti-Chernoy spoof website, chernoi.nu,

which appears to have been created by then-Putin campaign manager


Marina Litvinovich.9 The domain was paid for using a fake credit card and

put up 22 November 1999, shortly before the Duma elections. It was taken

down on Chernoy’s request in January 2000.10


 An article from January 16 cached from the satcor website does not give a

citation for the paragraph about Arifov, but the following paragraph cites a

Fortune magazine article from 12 June 2000. Fortune magazine’s free archive

does not go back that far so I could not check whether the Fortune article really

was the source for the claim about Arifov.

Why would Putin’s 2000 campaign team (using chernoi.nu) invent an Uzbek

criminal Tofik Arifov?


His main rivals in the December 1999 Duma elections and March 2000 presidential

election were Moscow mayor Yuriy Luzhkov and former Prime Minister Yevgeniy

Primakov, who had united in the Fatherland-All Russia Party, as well as Gennadiy

Zyuganov’s Communist Party.


 Chechen hotelier Umar Dzhabrailov did nominally run in the 2000 election but

probably never expected to get many votes.


 Putin’s strategists, led by Boris Berezovskiy and Vladislav Surkov, and political

consultants Gleb Pavlovsky and Marina Litvinovich, groomed the image of Putin

and of his Unity Party for those elections.11


 The surge of Russian national fervor accompanying the Second Chechen War

boosted Putin’s popularity.


 Also in 1999, six months before the elections, Berezovskiy had bought the

influential newspaper Kommersant, using Iran-born Kia Joorabchian as cover.12


Kia received help from Roy Azim, who was reportedly friendly with Tofik Arifov.

 In February 2000, a month before the presidential election, Berezovskiy and

Abramovich took over TWG’s aluminum assets from Chernoy.13 As part of the

deal, Chernoy’s erstwhile partner Deripaska into the chairmanship of the

consolidated company, Rusal. It is unclear whether this transaction was pegged

to the election.
 If Berezovsky/Abramovich and Tevfik Arif were all helping the Yeltsin family

and its chosen successor, Putin, why would Putin strategists tar Tofik Arifov with

the brush of being an Uzbek criminal?

Was Arifov a school friend of Lev Chernoy?

The satcor.ru article from January 3 2003, focusing on Bykov, identifies Arifov as a

school friend of Lev Chernoy.14 The article provides a parenthetical citation to

chernoi.ru (Chernoy’s real website) a few paragraphs later, and it is unclear whether

this statement comes from there.

In contrast, it was Alimzhan Tokhtakhunov and the KGB , not Rakhimov and

Arifov, who were identified as Lev Chernoy’s patrons in a biography posted on

compromat.ru on 10 March 2000, just 13 days before the elections that confirmed

Putin as president. compromat.ru claimed the unattributed article came from its

forum. No other cached copies could be found. This feature piece on Lev Chernoy,

written in a literary style with no citations, claimed two other patrons for Lev:
 Alimzhan Tokhtakhunov (Taivanchik), whom it described as his school friend

and protector.
o This article says it was Tokhtakhunov, not Rakhimov and Arifov, who

introduced Lev to Vladislav Ivankov (Yaponchik) and Otari Kvantrishvili

(Otarik).
 The KGB, who arrested Lev for illegal trading activities in the 1980s but released

in return for a commitment to serve as an informer for them.


o The KGB also helped Lev Chernoy land his job in the excavator plant,

claims the article.15

Other authors speak more generally of Chernoy receiving help from school friends

from the Uzbek crime world. Kalitin mentions this general group of friends in one

place, and Tokhtakhunov in another place.16

If Tofik Arifov really were a school friend, it would have been at school # 129 in

Tashkent, where Lev transferred after 8th grade. Lev had previously studied at a

special school due to his disability: a bout with polio had reportedly forced the

amputation of part of his leg.17An iniitial keyword search for alumni ofSchool #129

yielded nothing relevant.

1999 compromat dump against Anatoliy Bykov and Yuriy Luzhkov

“…[Anatoliy] Bykov’s [crime] group coalesced in 1990-1992. Its ‘godfathers’ in the

crime world are Salim Abdulayev [aka Abduvaliyev] (‘Salim’) and Tofik Arifov

(‘Tofik), leaders of the Uzbek crime group, who have been actively working with L.

Chernoy since the late 1980s…..

“Bykov, observing his agreement with Yaponchik, coordinated his activities with the

heads of TWG[the Chernoys]. In 1995-1996 he spend a total of several months in

the US and met with Yaponchik more than once.”

These claims appeared in a report that was apparently written in early-to-mid-1997 and

came to light on a shortlived website, known as Kogot’-2 or web102b9.ntx.net or

krasnobykow.com, which has been described as “yet another compromat dump.”

 Kogot-2 [“Claw-2”] appeared 18 February 1999, ahead of the 1999 parliamentary

and 2000 presidential elections. It focused on Krasnoyarsk crime-linked

businessman Anatoliy Bykov, particularly on his “shady ties” with Moscow

mayor Yuriy Luzhkov. The site was soon closed.”18 Bykov was at the time

opposing Krasnoyarsk regional Governor Aleksandr Lebed.19


 As Moscow Times points out, “It's fascinating stuff - and almost totally

unsubstantiated. Theories abound about who is behind Kogot and other such

sites - could it be spies, political imagemakers, jittery journalists?....


 “‘There is a ton of such material gathered around Moscow,’ [Moscow News

 At least some of the material in an earlier Kogot compromat dump was genuine,

according to one of its victims.

Sources from Compromat.ru articles on Lev and Mikhail Chernoy

“According to the newspaper ‘Konservator’ (2003), “The Chernoy brothers

obtained money to develop their business through ties with the Uzbek criminal

community, particularly with Gafur Rakhimov and Tofik Arifov,” says a biography

of Mikhail Chernoy put together by aksnews.ru, the Agency for Conflict Situations.

 AKS is a subsidiary of Rosbalt, which is co-owned by the wife of former anti-


drug tsar Cherkesov (a former Leningrad KGB boss of Putin) and by the

Luzhkov-friendly and crime-linked Vladimir Yevtushenkov of the Sistema

conglomerate.21

The cited Konservator article exists only as a reprint on compromat.ru and contains

no mention of Rakhimov or Arifov.

 If it originally did make such claims, they may have been removed and papered

over with more neutral text. The following paragraph in the version posted in

compromat.ru might be the papered-over version:


 “In 1985 the brothers opened one ofthe first cooperatives in Tashkent. First the

joint venture worked in the flower business, but later the brothers’ circle of

interest expanded from day to day. Older brother Mikhail took on the organization

ofproduction, while Lev took care ofraw materials supply, product sales, and

financial issues.”22
 This mild phrasing about raw materials supply may disguise what some sources

say explicitly: that the Chernoy brothers’ cooperative supplied itself with goods

stolen from the factory where Lev worked. Kalitin disputes this claim, however.

Rumafia.com’s version of Mikhail Chernoy’s biography also quoted the exact same

phrase, “the Chernoy brothers obtained the money to develop their business

through ties with the Uzbek criminal community, primarily with Gafur Rakhimvo

and Tofik Arifov.”

carried “’recommendation letters’ from ‘respected’ Tashkent businessmen known

by their nicknames Gafur and Salim. Thanks to these, the visitor to the capital

became acquainted with Sergey Mikhaylov, the ‘businessman from Solntsevo’, and

Gulnara’s family: If Gulnara/Julia had three small children in the 1990s and was

managing a realty company, she would have needed childcare. Many people from

the former Soviet Union bring over their parents to help with this. I looked for other

Turkish-, Russian- or Central Asian-sounding names o (b)(6)

to see whether any of them might have been her parents. No clear candidates

emerged. However, it would be worth looking at other residents of the Arif family’s

other homes for other possible relatives of Gulnara.

Arif, Felix Sater, Julius Schwarz and Jody Kriss remained as Bayrock managers for
the full 15 years. 25
 It is understandable that whoever stands behind FL would want to keep Arif and

Sater employed, but what value to them were Schwartz and Kriss?
 A search for Schwarz’s name in Russian along with various spellings of

“Bayrock” yields almost nothing.


 How does this FL document fit with claims by mobster-turned-informant

Salvatore Lauria that it was he, working as a consultant to Bayrock, who in

2007 brokered a $85 million deal making Iceland’s FL Group partners in the

Midtown Miami development? Is this the same deal described Lauria says

Bayrock finance director Jody Kriss was angry that he kept the $2.5 million

commission and later filed a lawsuit against the company and threatened

Lauria’s life.2627
 Also, did Kriss’ departure and lawsuit against Bayrock affect the FL “loan”?

From Pavel Fuchs Update 20 September 2016-09-24


Coincidence? Milediy Kukuts was born in 1953, the same year as Tofik Arifov. It

seems unlikely they ever encountered each other. The only likely place would have

been in the military. People from Central Asia (at least the less educated ones)

tended to be placed in construction battalions, not paratrooper divisions. Arifov, as

a member of the exiled Meskhetian Turks, on the one hand may have experienced

residual persecution, but on the other hand may have had the incentive to get a good

education and excel. (This is what the exiled Koreans did).

Key Findings
The brother with the chromium money: Rafik Arifov /Refik Arif and the

Aktyubinsk Chrome Compounds Factory (AZHS)


 Tofik Murtazayevich Arifov coauthored several patents on chromium-based

leather tanning. Though published in 1998-2000, they were likely for inventions

developed in the Soviet era. Thus, in Soviet times he was either a specialist on

chromium chemistry, or a powerful manager in the chromium industry.


 Tevfik’s brother Rafik Murtazayevich Arifov (Refik Arif) co-owns Doyen

Capital and Doyen Sport, as well as French real estate holdings, Bilge Turizm in

Turkey, and the UK-based companies Bondex Trading Ltd and Networld Trading,

which serve as representatives of the Aktyubinsk Chrome Compounds factory.

Ties between Cengiz Family and AZHS


 A subsidiary of the Cengiz Holding empire in Turkey won a road-buildling

contract in Aktobe. Several of the people managing that subsidiary also hold top

posts in AZHS.
 A Murtaza Rustamovich Arifov, who is probably Tevfik Arif’s nephew, is a

consultant to the subsidiary.


 The Cengiz empire could be the power behind the Arif family empire, or it relies

on the Arifs to help them gain entrée to contracts in Kazakhstan.

Did the Arif brothers get early funding from Akhmetov/Gumenyuk?


 Rixos chief Fettah Tamince, in a 2005interview, claimed that Bilge Turizm, the

Arif brothers’ company, received funding from Rinat Akhmetov and Igor

Gumenyuk, Ukrainian oligarchs close to Yanukovych.

Possible military or security services link?


 Tofik Murtazayevich Arifov’s co-authors on the chromium tanning patents

include people who have worked for institutes that have developed protective

gear for the Soviet military and special services.


 One co-author, Nina Okhotnikova, formerly worked for a “post-office-box,” likely

a secret military installation whose identity remains to be determined possibly

AZHS itself.
 Okhotnikova now holds a top post at AZHS.
 Also, a possibly related company called Bayrok is located at a police

experimental factory.

Kronos Capital
 Tevfik Arif’s children co-directed Kronos Capital Ltd from 2009 to 2011.
 The company apparently existed before and after these years and did projects in

Ukraine.
 People linked with Kronos Capital were also linked with InvestUkraine and

Castle Finance, which in turn is linked with UkrSibBank and BNP Paribas.

Who-whom still unclear


It is unclear who, if anyone, stands behind the Arif family’s money flows.
 Their chromium factory and development projects in themselves were probably

lucrative. But they have to be locally powerful to avoid corporate raids, and to

keep on good terms with Nazarbayev in Kazakhstan, Erdogan in Turkey, and

other powerful elites in both countries.


 Perhaps Tevfik Arif is forced to continually cultivate Aleksandr Mashkevich
and ENRC, which owns upstream and downstream chromium factories, but

apparently his Aktyubinsk Chrome Compounds Factory remains independent of

them.
 The Cengiz family is clearly tied with AZHS.. Either they own a stake in it, or the

Arif family smoothes their way to lucrative contracts in Kazakhstan. Is there a

conflict between this relationship and Trump’s partnership with the Dogan
family. The Dogan daughters have married into several Turkish dynasties but

not into the Cengiz family .29


 We have seen Fettah Tamince claim that Rinat Akhmetov and Igor Gumenyuk
provided early funding for the Arif brothers’ Bilge Turizm, which built their first

Rixos hotel in Turkey.


 Former BTA bank chief Mukhtar Ablyazov should probably be brought back in

here. He was Minister of Energy, Industry and Trade in 1998-1999 and may

have helped AZHS when it briefly listed on the Kazakhstan Stock Exchange.

People surrounding Trump and Bayrock have been implicated in thefts of budget

money by the Khrapunov family, also linked with Ablyazov. How about the Arif

family?

Born in Kazakhstan or Uzbekistan?


Evidence that Tevfik and his brothers were born in Kazakhstan:
 On incorporation papers for Ravana Private Holding, brother Refik wrote

that he was born in “Cambul,” Kazakhstan.


 However, the reliability of the information these documents is dubious.

Other brother Vakif wrote incomprehensibly, “Place of birth: Kazakstan.

Country of birth: Turkey. Nationality. Kazakhstan.” 30

Evidence that Tevfik and his brothers were born in Uzbekistan:


As of 1997, brother Rafik spelled his patronymic in the Uzbek way, Murtozayevich

with an “o” in the middle, when registering a car in Almaty. 31

This may be a stretch: If Tevfik named “Bayrock” for the Turkic word for “flag,”

when he chose to spell it with an “o” he was choosing an Uzbek spelling.

Information that might resolve the question:

If someone could safely look at the zipped directory information for brother Refik

that said he lived in Novovoskresensk, Zhambyl Oblast. According to the fragment in

the Google search result, the entry should include place of birth (Russian initials

м.р.). We still don’t know the source or reliability ofthis information.

Uzbek mafia—ways to check for Arifov connection?


 Kalitin writes, “Tashkent oldsters will probably still remember the scandal

surrounding the so-called flower mafia,” which culminated in a knife battle in

Tashkent’s streets. “This story is thought to be linked with a redistribution of

spheres of influence in favor of a certain crime boss named Tofik (Tofik

Arifov),
o --where else did I see references to this battle? Was it 1994? If so, not

related to 1980s flower mafia battle


 If Arifov really were allowed to travel abroad, and were related to Rakhimov, it

might have been through AKAMP, the Association of Cooperatives and Small

Businesses, which was sponsored by the Party and Komsomol.


o Rakhimov elsewhere claimed to have worked for the Soviet trade

ministry FIND
o Try searches for Арифов АКАМП?
 A person with a hometown and training similar to his worked for

KurortProdTorg (Resort Supply and Trade) 32. Perhaps that is where Arifov

worked. Try searches for Арифов Курортпродторг

People who know about Central Asian OC in the 1990s:


 Martha Brill Olcott at Carnegie
 Kim Thachuk and Karen (formerly worked with Louise Shelley)
 Eric McGlinchy at GMU?
 David Satter?
 Dan Kimmage? (He was at State Dept, last I heard, and might not be in a position

to talk).
 Bob Orttung
 Lisa Tarantino? (Her name was suggested by a friend who worked in Central

Asia in the ‘90s). After graduating from SIPA at Columbia U. in 1994, Tarantino

worked in Uzbekistan for three years, apparently trying to set up a business.

Not part of ENRC’s KazChrome but reliant on it


Contrary to speculation in the 13Sept16 report, AZHS is not part of KazChrome,

which is owned by Aleksandr Mashkevich’s ENRC.


 Rather, it is downstream consumer of raw materials from KazChrome plants.
 AZHS produces chromium chemicals such as sodium dichromate, while

KazChrome produces both the raw materials and also chromium metal.33 3435
 AZHS is located across the railroad tracks from ENRC’s FerroChrome plant.

had earlier confiscated photos of these strategic facilities.

 Over 90% of AZHS’ chromium salts are exported.37

Possible link with military work


 As mentioned in an earlier report, Tofik Arifov’s patents related to chromium-
based leather tanning compounds, all applied for in 1998-1999, could have been

an attempt to gain credit for work done secretly earlier.


The biography of his co-patent-holder Nina Anatolyevna Okhotnikova suggests a

tie to Soviet-era military-related work and to the Aktyubinsk Chrome Compounds

Factory.
 She earned patents and published papers in the 1970s and 1980s on the

production of chromic acid and chromium trioxide.


 Some of her work was published in the journal of the Urals Chemical Research

Institute in Sverdlovsk, a region with many military industrial factories.48


 She was listed as working at “Post Office Box А-7125 Enterprise” in a 1981

patent. 49
o This is probably a secret military facility.
o This may have been the AZHS itself. Kazakh authorities considered them

strategic facilities (see caption above).


o Alternatively, this may have been one of Kazakhstan’s many other

leather-tanning and shoe-making factories. 50


o Aktobe itself had a shoe factory.51
o DzhambulKozhObuv (now renamed TarazKozhObuv when the city got

renamed Taraz), one of the biggest leather shoe factories in the USSR,52
which had 5000 workers in the 1970s53 and branches in smaller towns.54

The Turkish construction magnates spell their name with a hard “C” (no curlicue)

that is pronounced like a soft “g” or “j” in English.


It is apparently distinct from the the Iranian-born, UK-based Iraqi Jewish securities

dealers, Robert, Vincent and Lisa Tchenguiz (original name Khadouri),


 They were arrested in 2011 after Kaupthing’s collapse but not Indicted. 10
 Their sister, Lisa Tchenguiz, had gone into the restaurant business with Ivana

Trump by 2006. 11 (see 22 April and 26 August notes)

Parent company Cengiz Insaat was founded in 1987 in Istanbul and focuses on

infrastructure.12

The Arifov family probably smoothed the way with local Aktyubinsk region

authorities for the Cengiz family to get the contract for building that section of the

giant Western China to Western Europe road.


 In return for their help, the Arifovs got a family member signed on as a

“consultant.”
 Also, they got control over the hiring of workers via their person Sabinina in the

cadres job.

Cengiz family and Sungate Port Royal Hotel


 An article from July 2005 says The Sungate Port Royal was developed by the

politically connected oligarch family of Mehmet Cengiz . 13


 It is unclear how this report fits in with reports that Mirax Group bought the

property from Mehmet Nuri Geligbag in 2007 for an inflated price of 370

million Euros, mostly in cash, then sold the hotel back to the same man in 2010

for only 12.5 million Euros, a 95% loss.14


 As we recall, the hotel was administered by the Rixos hotel chain, and Sater

boasted about his work on it. (14Dec15Report)

The Panama Papers show Cengiz family’s Russia and China ties
 Note: The material from the Panama Papers cannot be used in a law enforcement

investigation because it is privileged attorney client material. Any evidence

deriving from it could be thrown out in court as “fruit ofthe poisonous tree.”
 According to Panama Papers documents cited in Sueddeutsche Zeitung, Mehmet

Cengiz and his brother Ekrem hold shares in MEC Metal Equipment Consultancy

Co. via Bonito International Inc. MEC paid over $3mln to a Vremax Properties

company in June 2008 for “market studies and analysis related to the metals,

mining and construction sectors in Russia and China.” 15

Possible Arif family relationship to the Cengiz clan?


I considered the possibility that Gulnara (Julia) Arif’s maiden name was Cengiz.
 This was worthy of consideration because her middle initial on some American

people-search databases was “C.” There is no letter “C” in the Cyrillic alphabet,

but there is one in the Turkish alphabet.


 However, Gulnara is not a widespread Turkish name16; it is more Central Asian.
 Searches for Gulnara Cengiz ("Гюльнара Дженгиз" "Дженгиз Гюльнара"
"Ченгиз Гюльнара" "Чингиз Гюльнара" "Гюльнара Ченгиз" "гульнара

ченгиз" "ченгиз гульнара")


 yielded only one Facebook page with no information on it17, plus one Gulnara

who had married an Ahmet Cengiz who apparently works for Turkish

construction company Enka Insaat in Moscow.

RJR Nabisco/ KKR / Apollo and Specialty Chemicals Inc.

Does Apollo own part of the Aktyubinsk Chrome Compounds Factory (AZHS),

which is associated with Tevfik Arif’s family?

 From 1996 the Aktyubinsk factory was reportedly owned or part-owned by a

Liechtenstein-based company called Specialty Chemicals Inc. or Special Chemical

Inc, according to Wikipedia18 and a Kazakh encyclopedia from 200419.

(According to another source, AZHS went public in 1995] 20

 In 1995 RJR Nabisco bought Borden Inc., “an overleveraged publicly traded

dairy and chemical conglomerate.”


 In 2002 Borden Inc. changed its name to Borden Chemical Inc.21
 “And on Tuesday [wrote a July 2004 report], a deal was announced to sell

Borden Chemical to Apollo Management for $649 million. Apollo, a private

equity firm, will also assume about $550 million in debt.”22


 Borden’s name was changed to Hexion Specialty Chemicals Inc. in 2005,

Momentive Specialty Chemicals Inc. in 2010, and Hexion Inc. in 2015.23

If my hypothesis is correct that Tevfik Arif was a manager at AZHS in Soviet times,

and exerted influence during its privatization in 1995-6, then he was dealing with

RJR Nabisco,
 Recall that in 1995 LeBow won the right to buy 15% of RJR Nabisco,24
 Liggett’s 1996 decision to cooperate with federal officials in a massive tobacco

lawsuit was seen by other tobacco companies as a ploy to influence RJR Nabisco

shareholders to accept being purchased by Liggett.25 and


 in about 1997 “LeBow teamed up with corporate raider Carl Icahn to make a bid

for RJR Nabisco.”26

Tevfik Arif’s children headed this company in 2009-2011. As we saw in the

13Sept16 report, there are many companies with Kronos in their names.

 The previous report named several of those that could be related to the Arifs’

company.
 One more possible match is LLC Kronos, part of the LLC Gostinichnyy kompleks

Cosmos owned by Ablyazov.33

It looks as if Kronos Capital Holding in Ukraine IS related to UK-based Kronos

Capital Limited and that it existed before Ayla and Arif briefly headed it.

 2006 January 24: Oliver Ripley of Athena Group registers the website kronos-
capital.com. 34 (See 23July16Report for more on Ripley).

 2008 December 12: website kronos-capital.biz is created by Yaroslav Mykuliak of

LA-based inMotion Hosting, according to a whois record.35 Kronos-capital.biz

has been described variously as the website of Kronos Capital Ltd.36 Or of Kyiv-
based Kronos Capital Holdings, aka Kronos Capital (Ukraine).37
 As we saw in the 13Sept16 report, cached copies of kronos-capital-biz include

documents on development projects in Ukraine.

 2009 October 15: Ayla Arif and Arif Arif become directors of UK-based Kronos

Capital Limited [13Sept16report]. 3839

 A Kronos Capital Limited formerly existed in the Cayman Islands but had been

struck off the list in March 2009.40 Kronos Capital Gp Co. and Kronos Capital

Holdings Limited had also been voluntarily liquidated by their sole shareholder

at that time. The shareholder asked that the liquidator be Vladislav Antashkevich

of ul. Sverdlova 43-148, Moscow, but a company named Ogier was named

instead.41

AMC Castle Finance appears to be the asset management company of

UkrSibBank,46 which was associated with BNP Paribas.47

Yaroslav Yaroslavovich Mykuliak (Микуляк Ярослав Ярославович)

Social media:
A ymykuliak Facebook page contains no personal information, just some links to

favorite pages, including inMotion hosting and other Ukrainian-language sites.

Phone number: probably he was NOT affiliated with a massage parlor.


 The phone number appearing on a whois listing for kronos-capital.biz, 757-490-
0890, is in Virginia Beach.
 Since about 2010 that number has belonged to an Asian massage parlor.
 Another Internet service provider, U Little, appears with the same address and

phone number as the massage parlor in one entry on a page dated 2010. It is

unclear whether that page was up-to-date.


 Year-by-year Google searches for that number yielded nothing from 1995 to

2005 and one entry for In Motion Hosting in 2006. More recently InMotion

hosting has a different phone number. So it does not appear to have shared the

757-490-0890 phone number at the same time as the massage parlor.

Mykuliak worked for InvestUkraine, Kronos, Castle Finance, Bank Austria,


Raiffeisen, and Ladenburg Thalmann

 A Yaroslav Mykuliak was also Director of Research and Project Development for

the InvestUkraine Ukrainian state enterprise as of 2009, according to a

brochure on the kronos-capital.biz site.48


He is or was a Principal at Kronos Capital LLC, according to an undated pipl.com

profile.49 Before that his jobs were as follows:

Castle Finance and InvestUkraine

One active entrepreneur in the restaurant business, Vadym Gruzyn, worked for

Castle Finance Asset Management from January 2006-April 2007 in Ukraine, then as

a project director at InvestUkraine in 2013. He had attended school in New York

City in the 1970s before returning to Kyiv in 1977; perhaps he was the child of

Soviet diplomats.55

From the 1 July report

Trump connection to soccer, hotels, Italy, Colombia, Monaco: Proto Group and

Doyen’s Erick Thohir

Agent Jorge Mendes’ prime protégé, soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo, supposedly

bought a hotel in Monaco in January 2016 for 140 million euros [that’s much less

than the cost ofRybolovlev’s apartment!] .


This was announced in January 2016 by the British real estate agency Proto Group,

in which Donald Trump is a shareholder along with 41 year old Italian real estate

magnate Alessandro Proto.


 The announcement said the Monaco mansion he bought was just a few steps

from Trump’s residence {Keyword searches fail to yield a Trump residence in

Monaco}
 Also it says Rinaldo had invested 37 million Euros in four hotels to which he

gave the same label as his clothing line, CR7 tied with the Portuguese

company Pestana. They were in New York, Madrid, Lisbon, and the Portuguese

town of Funchal.
 In August 2015 he had paid 16.5 million euros for a high class apartment in

Trump Tower, New York.

Elsewhere it was reported that Alessandro Proto had been the original owner of the

Trump Tower loft bought by Cristiano Ronaldo.”1

Ronaldo denied Proto Group’s claims


“Ronaldo strenuously denied that and other suggestions of buying a favela

in Brazil to give back to residents and a Monaco hotel.” His representative said

a court case had been lodged in Italy for misuse of his name.
“Proto hit back in a stinging statement released on Sunday night.” They said

they had lodged a slander case in Madrid.2

In March 2016 the Proto Group announced that Cristiano Rinaldo had donated the

apartment to his Moroccan friend, Badr Hari.3 They include photos

 Proto Group seems to be implying an intimate relationship between Cristiano Rinaldo

and Badr Hari.


 In March, after hearing that Rinaldo planned to sue them for alleged false

statements about his business dealings, a Proto representative said, “….Probably,

Cristiano is upset because we haven't reached a deal with him. Cristiano Ronaldo

is used to having the world at his feet, but we don't work that way. It will be fun

to see him in a proceeding that exposes many details, including those of his

private life."4

Alessandro Proto has a checkered past and makes often-questionable claims.


 Alessandro was arrested in Milan in 2013 and investigated by Italian courts for

suspected market rigging. He was considered a flight risk, as he has another

residence in Switzerland. 5
 He has also claimed to have bought a Greek island along with Warren Buffett,

which Buffett denies. 6


 Proto also claims to be the person who inspired the lead character in Fifty Shades

ofGrey..7

Another claim involving Proto, Trump, and Doyen’s Erick Thohir is also

controversial.

In February 2016, “Spanish papers claim Inter have offered Atletico Madrid Coach

Diego Simeone €20m per year thanks to Donald Trump. The quite remarkable and

frankly improbable story appeared in today’s edition of Sport.

 They suggest Inter President Erick Thohir has targeted Simeone as the ideal

tactician due to his past success as a player at the club….


 The Nerazzurri are struggling with the Financial Fair Play regulations, but

Sport insist there is a way around that. It’s because Thohir’s search for new

 Recall that Indonesian media magnate Erick Thohir, who also owns Inter

Milan, is also a shareholder in Doyen Sports.10 11

Principal Sports – personal slush fund for Doyen’s Nelio Lucas


 Doyen Sports chief Nelio Lucas acts as “exclusive advisor for numerous markets,

particularly English ones,” for which an honorarium of 30.000 euros per month

is turned over to London based Principal Sports, solely owned by Nelio Lucas.”12
 “Principal Sport Management Ltd, a London based agency, works exclusively for

 Football Leaks started in September 2015, aiming to uncover corruption in

Portuguese soccer, according to a February 2016 email interview with a German

soccer publication.15
 They are especially interested in third party ownership funds.
 “We don’t want to accuse anyone without enough evidence, but, for example,

Doyen’s structure seems prone to money laundering. ”


 Asked to comment on the fact that their leaks violate bank secrecy, the

representative responds, “As everybody can see Doyen is a clear offshore

structure using trustees to hide the ultimate beneficial owners. Publishing

Bank Statements is just another way to help FIFA in their compliance activities

and the Malta Financial Services Authority in their investigation against Doyen’s

irregular activities.”
 They say they did not obtain the material through hacking. Evidence of this is

that Doyen filed a complaint alleging hacking in October 2015, but FootballLeaks

continues to have new information from after that time.


o “We have a variety of sources who supply us with the contracts and

agreements,” explained “John” in 9 February interview.16


 They claim they are not acting on behalf of a rival team.
 “we were happy to hear that FIFA TMS General Manager Mark Goddard checks

our website, and uses the information for their compliance activities.”
 Sporting Lisbon and Doyen did try to stop their revelations.
 “Rogério Bravo, a Portuguese Police Chief Inspector is a very good friend of Nélio

Lucas (Doyen’s CEO) and he was pressuring the Attorney General's Office to

share all the details about the investigation. In fact Doyen is only using the police

investigation to get to us, and they hired a private intelligence agency (Marclay

Associates) to do the dirty job…..


o “they are on the field searching everywhere as they want to stop this at

any cause. The Big Bosses in Turkey and Kazakhstan are really angry, and

they want to silence us as fast as possible…”


o “The bosses of the Doyen Group [are] the Arif family, one of the richest

families in Turkey, with ties to Donald Trump and the Turkish President.”
o Someone calling himself Artem Lobuzov emailed FootballLeaks asking

them to sell the information. They refused.

o Later, the Daily Mirror reported that an Artem Lobuzov [or Louzov]

had contacted Doyen’s Nelio Lucas, pressuring him to pay in order

for the information not to be released. The FootballLeaks

representative denies being behind this: “don’t you think that is

strange that only Doyen Sports claims they were victims of

blackmailing?! That all sounds like a really desperate attempt to

discredit Football Leaks.”


 Even their Russian server was not a refuge. “Our Russian provider closed our

cloud and then showed us documents from this company, which had massively

pressured them to do it.”


 In April 2016, FootballLeaks wrote that they were suspending their activity, and

the reasons would become obvious in a May Der Spiegel article.


 The FootballLeaks website currently gives an email address @yandex.ru

Agent Jorge Mendes hired an industrial and technological espionage firm, who are

working “day and night” to find and cut off the source of leaked documents,

according to a report from February 2016.17

Mendes was expanding in China. Guo Guangchang, owner of the Fosun funds,

invested in Gestifute through a subsidiary, Foyo, according to January 2016

reports.
 The 18 January ceremony in Shanghai was attended by Mendes’ top

players, Jose Mourinho and Cristiano Rinaldo.


 This connection between the Fosun fund and soccer teams raised

possibilities for other business links; Chinese telecoms giant Huawei (who

already sponsors Milan) and e-commerce company Alibaba could make

deals with other European companies through their tie with Fosun.18 19
 This look eastward makes sense for Mendes, as he was under pressure in

Europe.
 Fosun’s interests range “from real estate to the steel industry, from

commerce to insurance.”
 One problem: Guo Guangchang disappeared for a time in January as part of

anti-corruption investigations.
The turn toward China resembled that of Sergey Millian, who increasingly in

recent months has advocated three-way Russia-US-China trade.

agreement. Moreover, we have a good understanding of the contractual structure

used by Doyen in those deals. This blog will offer a brief synthesis and analysis of

this data.” [Much is based on FootballLeaks’ “Map of Deals”21]

I. Doyen’s “geoeconomics”

A. The Iberian base

B. Doyen’s internationalization (Netherlands-based FC Twente; Latin America; little-


known Belgian club Seraing United possibly as “as a legal Trojan horse to support

Doyen’s legal challenge against FIFA’s TPO ban in front of Belgian courts.”

II. Doyen’s Contractual System


A. Doyen’s guarantee: the Put Option or Free Agency Fee
B. The ‘Reasonable Transfer Offer’ and Doyen’s influence on the transfer policy of

clubs
C. Doyen’s double game as an agent

Conclusion: “Doyen’s business model is smart and has to be acknowledged as a

cynical embrace of the intrinsic logic of FIFA’s transfer system…. Doyen’s head, Nelio

Lucas, is no criminal. There is no indication that he engages in match fixing or

money laundering. He is a dead set investor hunting for the grail: secure financial

returns on investments….. This does not imply that this business model should go

on, however…..

Soccer/spying connection?
Speaking of spy couples: In the above mentioned German court case against the

Russian spies posing as Latin American born Heidrun and Andreas Anschlag, their

Moscow handler used a name associated with Tevfik Arif’s associates at Doyen

Sports:
“On the video platform YouTube they write comments with hidden messages

after movies. The Anschlags' user name: "Alpenkuh1." Moscow replies as


"Cristianofootballer."”22
This must have referred to Cristiano Rinaldo.

An Orhan Arifov was related to Tevfik Arif in his various towns on Long Island,

according to people search databases. This person’s age is given variously as 49 or

59, meaning he would have been born in 1957 or 1967. Ifone ofthese dates is

correct, he would be more likely a brother or cousin than a son.


 One Orhan Arifov in New York is 21 years old, bor (b)(6) .23 He

appears to be the same person who says he lives in the Bronx. Both have ties

to Bitola, Macedonia. 2425

Refik Arif/ Rafik Murtazayevich Arifov

A Rafik Murtazayevich Arifov is listed in undated databases as living in the village of

Novovoskresenovka, Dzhambyl oblast, Kazakhstan. He was bor (b)(6)

, according to the visible search results for the entry.26 (It appears on several

random looking websites like oxran.site, and the actual file is zipped. I did not risk

unzipping it)
This is the same birth month as the Refik Arif of Doyen and the Refik Arif who heads

real estate companies in France.


It is quite possible these are all the same person.
 Novovoskresenovka is not just any village. It is on the border between

Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan.


 Smuggling has been rampant across this border for years, as Kazakhstan has

been a member of the Customs Union with Russia, while Kyrgyzstan has been
a member of the World Trade Organization and neighbors China.27
 In one recent case police caught a man smuggling three kilograms of heroin

across the border in this area.28


 The village’s name changed in 2006 to Andas batyr,29 so the directory entry

for Arifov must predate 2006.


It is unclear whether this is the same person who lived i (b)(6)

, te (b)(6) , in another undated directory. He appears to live there alone.

Russian connection: Panama Papers


Note: The material from the Panama Papers cannot be used in a law enforcement

investigation because it is privileged attorney client material. Any evidence deriving

from it could be thrown out in court as “fruit ofthe poisonous tree.”


 The Refik Arif of Doyen appears in the Panama Papers as a shareholder of BVI
registered Merlin Trading Assets Ltd, founded 2 Jan 2009.30

Seventeen Years for Soviet Trade Ministry?


Tevfik Arif’s official biographies say he worked seventeen years for the hotels

administration of the Soviet Ministry of Trade and Commerce, or the Foreign Trade
Ministry. Sometimes it says he was an economist for this body.
 If he moved to Kazakhstan in about 1995, and set up in the US in 1999, then if he

actually worked for that ministry he probably did so starting between 1978 and

1982.
 I looked up online information about the structure of the Soviet trade ministries

a that time, and also about the Uzbek, Kazakh and Kirgiz Soviet Republicss

subsidiary of that ministry. (Since his apparent brother lived on the border of

the Kazakh and Kyrgyz republics, Tofik might have served in the latter)
 The patents we have seen for chromium based leatherworking processes

actually make sense if he were an economist in the trade ministry. In those

patents, applied for in the late 1990s, he is listed as coming from Kazakhstan.
 Hotel management in Soviet days was under four agencies: The State Committee

for Foreign Tourism (GosKomInTurist); the Central Trade Union Council

[presumably for workers’ sanatoria]; municipal services; and youth

organizations.38
 Responsibility for the Uzbek SSR’s tourism industry was scattered among

tourism and sports organizations; state agencies that had their own rest homes

and resorts; the Communist Party, Komsomol and trade unions; and collective

farms, and it generally received low priority from officials.39


 A website on the history of the central Soviet Ministry of Trade gives no mention

of hotels or the hospitality industry. 40


 If he worked for the Uzbek SSR Trade Ministry, he might have been hired by

Mirabror Usmanov, who became one of Uzbekistan’s richest people and the

President of the Uzbek National Olympic Committee in 2013.41 He may know

Uzbek crime boss Gafur Rakhimov, who helped raise money for the 2014 Sochi

Olympics.
 Possibly he worked for the Ministry of Foreign Trade. If so, he would have been

hired by Nikolay Semenovich Patolichev, who served them from 1958 to 1985.

Patolichev served as a Supreme Soviet deputy from Tashkent, although he did

not originate in Uzbekistan.42 He may have gotten to know Arifov there.


 If he worked for the central USSR Ministry of Trade, he was probably hired by

Aleksandr Ivanovich Struyev, who held the post from 1965 to 1983. Struyev was

born in 1906 and served in WWII in the Donbass, Ukrainian SSR.43

Tevfik Arif’s first building project: Labada hotel


Official bios say this was his first project.
 Also known as the Asdem Beach Labada, Rixos Labada, Barut Labada, and

Asdem Labada.
 Located in the town of Kemer in the Camyuva region of Turkey.
 Built in 1999, though several sources say it was opened only in 2006.
 It has Russian speaking personnel.44

This suggests that Arif worked for Rixos since the mid 1990s, if it took several years

after first being initiated.

Cengiz/ Tchenguiz family, Rixos, FL Group, and Ivanka Trump

An article from July 2005 says The Sungate Port Royal was developed by the

politically connected oligarch family of Mehmet Cengiz. The family is in the

aluminum business as well as construction. The hotel aimed for the domestic AND

RUSSIAN market. It employed Russian speaking Kyrgyzstani and Tatar women at

the reception desk.45

 It is unclear how this report fits in with reports that Mirax Group bought the

property from Mehmet Nuri Geligbag in 2007 for an inflated price of 370

million Euros, mostly in cash, then sold the hotel back to the same man in

2010 for only 12.5 million Euros, a 95% loss.46

I considered whether the Mehmet Cengiz family is related to the Iranian born, UK
based Iraqi Jewish securities dealers, Robert and Vincent Tchenguiz (original name

Khadouri) who had borrowed heavily from the Kaupthing and Landsbanki banks in

Iceland.

 They were arrested in 2011 after Kaupthing’s collapse but not Indicted. 47
 Their sister, Lisa Tchenguiz, had gone into the restaurant business with Ivana

Trump by 2006. 48
 It seems unlikely that they are related to the Mehmet Cengiz family.

The Panama Papers show Cengiz family’s Russia and China ties
Note: The material from the Panama Papers cannot be used in a law enforcement

investigation because it is privileged attorney client material. Any evidence deriving

from it could be thrown out in court as “fruit ofthe poisonous tree.”

According to Sueddeutsche Zeitung,

“The Panama Papers show that Mehmet Cengiz and his brother Ekrem hold power

of attorney for a company named Bonito International Inc., which is registered on

Niue Island in the South Pacific.


 “Via this company, the brothers hold shares in MEC Metal Equipment

Consultancy Co., a company registered in Great Britain. Until now, MEC was a

complete mystery it wasn’t clear which purpose it served, or what type of

business it did.
 “A document found in the Panama Papers contains an MEC Metal Equipment &

Consultancy Co. contract for, among other things, “market studies and analysis

related to the metals, mining and construction sectors in Russia and China.” The

contract partner is “Vremax Properties Limited”, another unknown company

registered in the British Virgin Islands.


 “The two page contract barely includes any mention of actual consulting

services, but lists a payment of USD 3.07 million. The transaction was apparently

made at the end of June 2008, when the money was wired to a Vremax

Properties account at a private bank in Switzerland. Whether or not consulting

services were provided remains unclear.


 “However, the set up could be a means of using a company to divert public funds

into one’s own pockets. In Turkey, it is said that no one has been awarded as

many public contracts in the past 14 years as Mehmet Cengiz.”49

Monaco/Rybolovlev update: Basketball team owner Sergey Vladimirovich

Dyadechko and his boss, Monaco exile Yuriy Ivanyushchenko


 As we saw in the 24 June report, “De Bruyn provided entrée to the Prince for

another former Soviet businessman, Sergey Dyadechko, to head AS Monaco’s

basketball team. Former owner of a basketball team in Donetsk, President

Yanukovych’s hometown, Dyadechko fled Ukraine in 2012 after an apparent

assassination attempt, following years of scandal involving the disappearance of

funds from his Rodovid bank and the mysterious deaths of key witnesses.50
Correction: it is spelled Rodovid (Russian spelling Rodovod), not Rodovik

In July a Ukrainian crime periodical wrote, “Sergey Dyadechko Saved Oligarch

Ivanyushchenko’s Bank from Liquidation,” referring to Yanukovych friend and

reputed crime figure Yuriy Ivanyushchenko (Yura Yenakiyevskiy). 51


 Dyadechko, who nominally owns the Soyuz bank since Ivanyushchenko fled in

June 2014, convinced a court to reject the National Bank’s second decision to

liquidate Soyuz. An appeal by the National Bank is still outstanding.


 Soyuz bank has been in the SBU’s sights as well for financing terrorism. The

pharmaceuticals company Niko, owned by Sergey’s mother, Tamara Ivanovna

Dyadechko, moved its offices to Kyiv after the separatist takeover of its

Makeyevka headquarters but it continues to produce in Makeyevka and to pay

taxes to the separatist authorities. Some of its products make their way through

the Line of Demarcation and are sold in Ukraine proper.

 Dyadechko controlled about 77% of Rodovid bank through Capital Group LLC

(ООО «РБ «Капитал Груп») until it was nationalized in summer 2009. He and

others pumped some 32 million hryven out of Rodovik into Soyuz. Yuriy

Savitskiy, General Director of Rodovid Asset Management, helped.


 Dyadechko also helped finance the Antimaidan movement and the Berkut police

who beat Maidan protestors, according to law enforcement sources. He also has

reportedly helped finance the Donbass separatists.


 Soyuz bank also was a key link in a chain money laundering banks that included

Donetsk based Konversbank, which owned by Ivanyushchenko partner Reinis

Tumovs [Рэйнис Тумовс], who was joined in 2011 by Russian oligarch Vladimir

Antonov. After Antonov’s arrest in London, Tumovs changed the name to

CityCommerce Bank (Городской коммерческий банк) and transferred funds to

ProFin Bank.
 Ivanyushchenko and his ally Dyadechko have fought hard to prevent Soyuz’

bank’s closure partly because Ivanyushchenko hopes to return to Ukraine

someday. He has allies in the Ukrainian government who lobby for him, so court

cases against him keep falling apart. As a result he is free to visit his family in

Monaco and use his assets throughout Europe.


 Dyadechko, Ivanyushchenko and Ivan Abramov are also linked to the

GlobalMoney payments system, the only one that received an SBU license during

Yanukovych’s administration. A former finance minister under Yanukovych also

also controlled a share in the bank.52


 Ivan Avramov has been called Ivanyushchenko’s criminal “overseer” for the

Odessa region. Ivanyushchenko continues to profit from the Seventh Continent

market near Odessa.53


 Dyadechko, described as a “key specialist in money laundering” is a director of

Adan Trade Limited, 122 126 Tooley St, London, a modest company whose other

director also serves as the front person masking Ivanyushchenko’s control over

Seventh Continent.54
 Dyadechko’s and Soyuz bank’s success in resisting liquidation could weaken the

National Bank’s authority and undermine Ukraine’s entire financial system.

Indeed, it is a weapon that former Yanukovych people could use in seizing back

power from the Maidan forces, warn the Ukrainian crime periodical editors.
 They say an important step in breaking the power of the Yanukovych family’s

remaining financial tentacles is the recent arrest of former first deptuy Tax

Service chair Andrey Golovach. He has information about that corrupt former

system and about money laundering banks like Soyuz. 55

From “Trump Hollywood Residents 1 September 2016”


The Dzhabrailov brothers have several links with Tevfik Arif of Bayrock.
 We have seen that Umar is a friend of Telman Ismailov, who apparently

intervened on Arif’s behalf after the Turkish yacht orgy of 2010 and has attended

other Arif events (27May16report)


 Huseyn Dzhabrailov also attended a school of leather and fur working in the

1970s and worked in that industry in the Udmurt region of the RSFSR in 1979,

according to his official biographies. Working in that industry, he may have

encountered Tofik Murtazayevich Arifov, who published patents related to

leather working and whom we have shown is almost certainly our Tevfik Arif.

Another possible link with Tevfik Arif is that Eli Dzhabrailov sold his Trump

Hollywood unit to Carina Investments LLC.


 This company shares a name with a network of stores run by a Siberian

company called RIF Invest. 56 That company’s name, in turn, resembles the RIF

International owned by Tevfik Arif.


 Carina Investments LLC opened in 2013 57 and runs out of the home of its

manager, Frederico Bomeny, whose address variously appears a (b)(6)

or a (b)(6) , in a residential

neighborhood (b)(6) .58 A company by that name also exists at 7593

Turnberry Lane in Stanley, NC.59 Bomeny also founded the Cygnus Investment

Group LLC in 2013 60 and Libra LLC in 2014.61


 Its director could be the same Frederico Figueiredo Bomeny who was sanctioned

in Brazil apparently for hindering the investigation of irregularities in a real

estate deal. 62Another person named in that case was a Gilberto Bomeny, and the

From the September 2 Report

Bayrock sources of funding, continued


I continued to seek roundabout ways to understand Bayrock’s sources of funding,

including attempts to find the alleged Arif family empire of assets in chrome, energy

and other sectors that was alleged in reporting about Doyen Sports.

I have found additional evidence that Tofik and his brothers share the patronymic

Murtazayevich. That and the coincidence of birthdates has allowed me to match

Refik and Vakif Arif who own hotels, French real estate and Doyen Sports with

people who also have had addresses in Moscow and in a smuggling town on the

Kazakh Kyrgyz border.

This in turn continues to chip away at the question into whether Tofik indeed was

born in Kazakhstan, as he claims on his official bios, or whether he started life as a

boss of an Uzbek crime group, as some reports claim.

The reality may be totally unexpected. I have uncovered hints of Tofik’s involvement

with military and law enforcement research institutes

Tofik Arifov’s Patents: Link with Military and Law Enforcement Research?

The preceding evidence seems to confirm that Tevfik Arif is the same person as

Tofik Murtazayevich Arifov, who took out several patents for chromium based

leather processing.65 (One spells his name Tfik) 66

Having one’s name on a patent in Russia does not necessarily mean that one is a

research scientist oneself. Heads of laboratories or institutes sometimes are

included on patents as a badge of honor. Tofik Arifov may have had either a
research or an administrative position.

Exploring his fellow patent holders and the circumstances of the patents, we find

connections with the world of military and law enforcement research institutes,

as well as the names of other chrome-related companies that might have

provided funding for Bayrock.

Patent holder Karapet Mkhitarovich Zurabyan appears to have been born in

1925 67, and Makarov Zemlyanskiy (below) has been publishing since the 1950s. One

would expect them to be long retired. Both, however, appear as advisors on a 2005

dissertation.68

Fellow patent holder Ya.Ya. Makarov Zemlyanskiy was an eminent scholar at the

the Moscow State Institute of Design and Technologies.


 This institute used to be called the Moscow Technological Institute of Light
Industry.69
 Chemists from that institute designed filters for gas masks.70
 Another name on one of Arifov’s chromium patents, Galina Fedorovna Yesina, is

a professor at the same university. 71


 Makarov Zemlyanskiy has been publishing since the 1950s72
 He and Zurabyan were apparently affiliated with the All Union Extramural

Institute of Textile and Light Industry when they applied for a patent in 1984. 73

Another fellow patent holder, Nina Anatolyevna Okhotnikova, worked at one time

for an institution described as “Post Office Box А 7125” (ПРЕДПРИЯТИЕ ПЯ А


7125) as of 1981.74

 PO Boxes were euphemisms for secret military or national security installations.


 That POB number also appeared on patents together with other POBs and with

institutions like the Novotroitskiy Chrome Factory.75

Yelena Vladimirovna Sabinina.

The following information was added after August 30


 The four major stockholders of the Aktyubinsk Factory of Chrome Compounds

ChromaChem, Valmore Commercial, Archem, and Capella Invest may be owned

by the same unnamed beneficial owner. They all registered in Belgium in 1996

or 1997. Valmore and Chromachem have or had the address Avenue Louise

Yet another fellow patent holder, Anatoliy Mikhaylovich Karas, currently heads

marketing for Kulebaki metallurgy factory in the Nizhniy Novgorod region, along

the Volga.82
 He may also be the Anatoliy Karas who has made documentary films about the

heroic Donbass miners whose strike helped hasten the end of the Soviet Union.83

That which was hidden comes to light? The fact that numerous patents were all

applied for on the same day, 19 October 1998, and that some of their authors must

be long retired by now suggests that the actual inventions were made long ago at

the secret installations but could not be publicized at the time, and the authors were

only now claiming credit for them.

The Arif Brothers and Ravana

According to a 2015 report in Cahiers du Football, largely based on Football Leaks,


The Arif brothers who own Doyen Sports also own a holding, Ravana, based in

Curaçao, comprising chrome, coal, petrol companies, as well as financial advice and

investment.84

 FootballLeaks provides links to documents purporting to show Doyen’s

ownership. 85

 The documents are hosted on Kim Dotcom’s New Zealand based Megaupload

file sharing service.


 An attempt to open the document from Firefox failed. Apparently the add ons I

use for security blocked access.


 I was hesitant to try using a less secure browser, such as Chrome or Internet

Explorer, especially because of the Kim Dotcom connection and because


FootballLeaks reportedly used a Russian server.
 If someone else feels confident trying to open the documents using another

browser, such as Chrome or Internet Explorer, I would be curious to see what

they find.

I did, however, find some information about the Arifs who own Ravana. Assuming

Rousseau is correct that the Arifs of Doyen and Ravana are the same, however, this

completes the connection between Doyen and the people who are shown to have

addresses in Moscow and in a smuggling town on the Kazakh Kyrgyz border.

A corporate document from Curacao describes a Ravana Private Foundation


established in 2004. 86 It does not provide all the information about coal and

chrome holdings etc that Cahiers du football promised, but it does provide some

information on the Arifs.


 Its directors and official address, Schottegatweg Oost 10 Unit A1K, seem to be

typical offshore corporate services providers.


 Its founding document says it is “To make distributions out of its assets to such

institutions and persons as the Founder may determine and to provide financial

assistance to such institutions and persons by means of loans, granting

securities, annuity contracts and the like.” As a foundation, it may not “make

profits by….carrying on an enterprise.”


 Its “Supervisory Directors” are:
 Rekif Arif [sic], bor (b)(6) in “Cambul” Kazakhstan, nationality

Turkish.
 Vakif Arif, bor (b)(6) . “Place of birth: Kazakstan. Country of birth:

Turkey. Nationality. Kazakhstan.”

Both men’s birthdates link them to people we saw in the undated Moscow and

Almaty directories.87
 Refik’s birthplace, whose Turkish spelling is Cambul, could also be transliterated

Zhambyl or Dzhambyl. This ties in with the search result placing him in

Novovoskresenovka, on the Kazakh Kyrgyz border. That town is in the Zhambyl

region.
 Vakif gives a confusing mix of Turkey and Kazakhstan as the place of his origin.

He may have meant that he was ethnically a Meskhetian Turk and was from

Kazakhstan.
 If it is true that both these men are Tevfik’s brothers, one older and one younger,

and if both were born in Kazakhstan, then logically Tevfik may also have been

telling the truth that he was born in Kazakhstan.


 Alternatively, they all had reason to lie…

The brothers and Rixos Hotel Labada in Kemer

Vakif and Refik’s tourism company, BİLGE TURİZM TİCARET A.Ş. (WISE TOURISM

TRADE INC ), founded 29 Feb 2000, gave an address at the Solymos Hotel in the

town of Camyuva, in the Kemer region of Turkey where Arif’s first hotel, the

Labada, was. As we saw in an earlier report, the email address seemed to show a

link with Rixo (b)(6) . Phone (242)824 57 17 or (242)824 58 00


Fax 2428245811 88

Indeed, one of the phone numbers for the company, (242)824 58 00, is the same as

that of the Labada Hotel aka Asdem Beach Labada aka Barut Hotels Labada aka

Rixos Otel Labada. Barut Hotels took it over in 2013. 89, which is now under new

ownership, Barut. The company still appeals to Russians and Ukrainians.90

“Bayrok” company at police research institute

We expanded on our earlier research on whether Arif’s Bayrock company could be

related to the Turkish oligarch families Bayrak or Albayrak. We looked at various

spellings of this word.


 We found numerous entities with those names, ranging from villages in Ukraine

and Uzbekistan; an agricultural holding and a realtor in Russia’s Bashkortostan

region; companies in the Tatarstan region that do construction, pharmaceuticals,

and general wholesale trading; Bayrak Studio in Moscow, whose business

included filmmaking, software programming, construction, and everything

else; 91 and one that opened in Sevastopol, Crimea after the Russian takeover and

engages in dozens of seemingly unrelated business fields.92


 This large number of Bayrak entities not surprising, considering that it is a

common last name and the word also appears in the names of many Soviet

entities named “Red Banner”


 One Bayrak might be worth pursuing: Nikolay Bayrak, director of Zelenovskoye

stil LLC in Ukraine, is reportedly in the mining and metals industry.93 He also

has an online shop, Bayrok LLC, selling metal household goods such as kitchen

knives and rice cookers,94 as well as a gadget for testing metal welds.9596
 Given this abundance of Bayraks, no others stood out as possible associates of

Arif’s Bayrock Group.


 However, I continued to toy with this idea, partly because one of the Bayrak

family members in Turkey is a son in law of Recep Erdogan and Tevfik Arif may

have wanted to butter him up by giving his company that name.


 I tried variant spellings: Beyrok, Bayrok etc.

Bayrok: police research institute:

Searches for variant spellings resulted in at least one striking find: companies

named “Bayrok,” a name that is more distinctive and sounds more like Bayrock.
 “Bayrok” is the Uzbek spelling for the shared Turkic word for “flag” or “banner.”
 Substituting the letter “o” for the letter “a” is characteristic of Uzbek spellings as

compared with other Turkic languages.


 If Tevfik Arif named his company “Bayrock” in honor of the Turkic word for

“flag,” he was choosing the Uzbek spelling.


 Does this indicate he might have grown up in Uzbekistan???

One company named Bayrok is located at a police research institute outside

Moscow.

91The Moscow one was owned by Travis LLC.

One is a wholesaler in Kyiv that was formed in 1995 and was initially collectively

owned but is privately owned since 2004..2


This may be one that went bankrupt in 19983; if so, it must have come back from

bankruptcy.

One company with that name has to do with drilling and thus possibly with the Arif

family’s energy interests.

An expert on Soviet criminal law brought to Miami by a relative of Seydazimov,

testified on his behalf in court. Karpek Kurmanov writes in his memoirs:


 Kurmanov explained to the court that Seydazimov thought his previous

conviction had been totally wiped away because that is how the law works in

former Soviet countries.


 (Kurmanov fudges dates somewhat).
 Kurmanov says the initial charges against Seydazimov that he had helped

assassinate Kirgiz SSR Council of Ministers chief Sultan Ibraimov had been

trumped up politically. He says that after the real killer was found, drugs were

planted in Seydazimov’s cell and he was given an eight year sentence.23


o In my extensive reading of more recent former Soviet criminal cases,

when drugs or weapons are planted on someone, the minimum amount

necessary is planted. It is unclear whether old Soviet practices are the

same.
o Also the original charges seem too specific to be simply invented:

obtaining gold nuggets and sable skins and trading them,; illegally

possessing and storing firearms; and acquiring and using narcotics,

including Omnopon, which is not even clearly a drug. 24


 Kurmanov also claims that after 9/11, US authorities were paying special

attention to people of Asian background. At that time an “anonymous

communication along Interpol lines” was circulated saying Seydazimov had

hidden his past conviction. The “anonimka” turned out to have been written by a

Kyrgyz police official.


o A similar situation affects Alisher Usmanov and others who were arrested
in Soviet times. They claim their arrests were politically motivated. When

they have friendly incumbents in post Soviet positions, those friends

declare the previous convictions invalid. It is hard to discern the truth.


 Intriguingly, a snippet of the book version of Kurmanov’s memoir appearing in

Google search results identifies Azim as a former resident of Kazakhstan,

25 whereas the online version describes him as “our former countryman.”

Perhaps Kurmanov is from Kazakhstan. In any case, Azim may have lived for a

time in Kazakhstan and either retained an earlier Kyrgyz passport or obtained a

fake Kyrgyz passport (that country is very loose with its passports).

Azim and Joorabchian and Brazilian soccer players?

My impression from the Portuguese article was that Azim was not necessarily

involved in the buying of Brazilian athletes, but rather in the move to buy

Kommersant. Azim seems to have broken from Joorabchian by the time the Brazil

stuff was going on.


 However, Doyen Sports and by extension Arif may still be involved with

Jurabchian’s activities. My earlier report talked about Doyen’s close relationship

with Abramovich. And Doyen’s rep in Brazil is the guy who works with

Jurabchian.

Joorabchian is still doing deals with Abramovich’s Chelsea, making some observers

dubious:. “Chelsea doing business with Kia Joorabchian when FIFA investigation is

A Turkish journalist wrote in August 2005 that Ukrainian oligarch Rinat Akhmetov

and his close ally Igor Gumenyuk {Ihor Humenyuk], appear to have provided

funds for Tamince and Arif's Rixos hotels, jewelry business etc. in the 1990s.28
 (Akhmetov and Gumenyuk were powerful oligarchs of the “Donbass group”

from which Viktor Yanukovych emerged. See 14Dec15Report).


 It was apparently Igor who introduced Arif to Tamince.
 The journalist calls Arif a businessman of Turkish descent from Kazakhstan.
 He says Arif had business in Russia involving chromic oxide, was very rich,

and was living in America.


 He appears to say Arif was investigated for either smuggling or

contamination of fuel in Turkey but was later acquitted.


 Arif met Tamince in Gilan.
Apparently the journalist suspects Arif and/or Gumenyuk are connected with the

suspicious growth in Tamince’s jewelry business in Gilan.


 This journalist worked for the publication Vatan, which at that time

apparently belonged to the Dogan family, who would soon team with Trump

to build a tower in Istanbul.29

“Who cofounded the Rixos chain is not a secret to anybody,” wrote a user

nicknamed “Kyrgyz Daughter” in 2010 on an Azerbaijani discussion forum.


 She also said “a businessman with both Kazakh and Turkish citizenship” was

present at the creation of the Rixos hotel.


 The forum admin replied that he had not in fact known who cofounded Rixos,

until he learned from Google that “The owner is Rinat Akhmetov, but whom are

you referring to as the co owner?”


 More likely Kyrgyz Daughter had Tevfik Arif in mind as the Kazakh/Turkish

founder and Akhmetov as the cofounder.


 We have also seen a report saying Rixos belonged to “Russian, a Kazakh, a

Ukrainian, and a Turk,” with Tamince being the Turk (see 14Dec15report). 30

In a September 2005 interview with the same journalist who speculated on

Akhmetov’s funding of Rixos (above), Fettah Tamince appeared to say that Bilge

Tourism [which Google Translate sometimes renders as "Wise Tourism"] actually

owned the Labada Hotel.31 As we have seen, Tevfik Arif’s brothers own Bilge.

 Tamince said he had a 25/75 profit sharing arrangement with “Mr. Arif.” [He

uses the Turkish phrase “ArifBey.” Note that in common polite Turkish usage,

people use a person’s first name and the word “Bey” (Mister), but here Tamince

refers to “Mr. Arif,” not “Mr. Tevfik,” which suggests that he has a deferential

relationship to Tevfik Arif].


 He seems to say that before Bilge Turizm got involved, the Labada Hotel was

being developed by the Şirin family, with Turkish businessman Aytekin

Gültekin as architect. Later Aytekin Gültekin was a co owner of Tamince’s

Sembol Insaat construction company. Elsewhere the man’s name is incorrectly

spelled Güldemir, and he is identified as a member of the Antalya Provincial

Assembly from Recep Erdogan’s AKP party. 32


 Bilge Tourism Trading Inc. (BİLGE TURİZM TİCARET A.Ş) appears in a Turkish

business directory entry as owned by Refik and Vakif Arif [see “The Brothers 5

August 2016” report]. According to that entry, it was founded 29 Feb 2000.
 [Note that this Bilge was founded just days after Chernoy sold out his

aluminum assets to Abramovich. Could he have used some ofhis money from

the sale to invest in Bilge?]


 Tamince says that even though the Labada was called a Rixos hotel, Bilge

actually handled all the business; Rixos just provided the name.
 Tamince claims the Labada hotel cost $3mln, but the journalist said he heard

reports saying Tamince paid Arif $8 million.


 This suggests possible money laundering
 Full disclosure: there is a company called Bilge Turizm which is run by the Bilge

family. It appears to be distinct from the Arifbrothers’ Bilge Tourism Trading Inc. 33
In any case, in this interview Tamince is clearly referring to the Arifbrothers’

company.

Tamince and Arif also cooperated in the jewelry business: Sardis (Sardes) and

Alieu and possibly Lidyo. They apparently brought in $10mln worth of jewelry but

did not sell it for its full price.


 Asked about a certain MD who worked for a year in the Sardis company and was

investigated for some kind of contraband, Tamince says he thinks MD was

acquitted.
 Searches for “Frank Muller” MD reveal that there is an exclusive watch band made

by Franck Muller. One ofthese was auctioned offto raise money for Muscular

Dystrophy (MD), but that occurred in 2007, two years after this interview. 34

In a 2009 interview Tamince seemed to say that Arif was one of many partners, and

that earlier he had been partners with a Ukrainian (presumably referring to

Akhmetov). It is unclear whether Arif had a direct relationship with Akhmetov or

simply both happened to work with Tamince.35

Distancing himself from Arif after the 2010 yacht scandal, Tamince said the Labada

Hotel had been transferred to him [apparently Arif] in 2007 and that they were no

longer involved in any joint projects.36

However, a Turkish report seemed to say Tamince and Arif partnered in another

company in 2010.37

Possible source of funds for Bayrock: Aktyubinsk Chrome Compounds Factory

The 2Sept16 report provides a clue linking Tofik Murtazayevich Arifov (who we

have identified as almost certainly the same person as Tevfik Arif) with the

Aktyubinsk Chrome Compounds Factory.


 One fellow patent holder, Nina Anatolyevna Okhotnikova, went from Soviet

undated list of people affiliated with the Aktyubinsk factory, these four

shareholders are represented by International Business Company in

Brussels.404142
 An entry the sidebar template of the factory’s Wikipedia article says the chrome

compounds factory was owned by Liechtenstein-based Special Chemical

Inc. since 1996.43 This is probably outdated.

A plausible scenario for Tofik Arifov:


 He may have been a manager at the Aktyubinsk factory in Soviet days. His

name‘s appearance on the leatherworking patents could be honorary, based on

his managerial position.


 Like many Soviet era managers, he may have leveraged his position in the 1990s

to take over shares in the factory.

The Aktyubinsk Chrome Compounds Factory (www.azhs.kz) may be related to

KazChrome, owned by Aleksandr Mashkevich’s ENRC.


 The chrome compounds factory is located in the same industrial park as the

Aktyubinsk Factory of Ferroalloys (ferrochrome.kz), which is part of ENRC’s

KazChrome.44
o Both are on the same street called 312nd Rifle Division Prospect (пр. 312

стрелковой дивизии).
o As described in an earlier report, KazChrome was taken over by

Chernoy’s TWG in the 1990s, hiding behind a company called Japan

Chrome
 However, business entries treat AZHS as an independent company not under

KazChrome.
 AZHS’ address in the Aktobe Industrial Zone is Section 15B.45 Some KazChrome

assets are sometimes listed as being in the Northwestern Industrial Zone.

Claims made about Arif


Richest man in Turkey?
A Russian translation of the article in the Israeli periodical Ediot Akhronot, speaking

about the yacht orgy scandal, calls Arif the richest person in Turkey46. It is unclear

how reliable this report and translation are.

Invested $15bln in Turkey?


According to one Kazakh periodical’s report on the yacht scandal, Arif claimed to

reporters that he had invested $15bln in Turkey. He also claimed he knew nothing

about the plans for the orgy and that he simply arrived to relax for the weekend.47

Well-connected in Soviet times? Had the right to travel?


The Economist’s Ed Lucas writes that Tevfik was “a well connected official back in

the Soviet days, who was allowed by the Communist leaders to travel abroad, at a

time when that was a privilege afforded only to senior KGB and Party officials.”48 It

is unclear where this information came from.

1996 contract for a Brooklyn shopping center?


Several biographies refer to this as his first agreement in the US. Could it have been

the building at 2027 Emmons, where his wife’s Emmons Realty office was? That

building had a dozen businesses in it.

Ayla Arif/Arifova – Tevfik’s apparent daughter

Ayla appears to be Tevfik and Gulnara’s daughter. Or possibly she could be a niece

 A Kronos Capital Limited formerly existed in the Cayman Islands but was struck

off the list in March 2009.68


 There was a Kronos Capital Ltd in Kyiv, described as an “investment boutique.”

A man named Sergey Nikolayevich Umanets posted a resume on 5 August 2009.

He said he headed the Analytical Department at Kronos Capital Ltd from

December 2006 to May 2008. His duties included attracting projdct financing

from OTP (or OTR) Bank, Unicredit Bank, and UkrSibBank (BNP Paribas Group).

After working there, he worked in the Kyiv office of UK based

Silkrouteproperty from October 2008 to when he posted the resume in 2009.

Before working at Kronos, he did investment analysis at Castle Development

(DCH), a real estate firm in Kyiv.69

 There are dozens of English language company names containing “Kronos” and

several Russian named ones. 70 Extensive research would be necessary to see

whether any of them is related to Kronos Capital Ltd.

 Some Kronos companies that are possibly linked include a Кронос РФ (Kronos

Russian Federation) that produces polycarbonate and sells it through a company

named Zlak LLC in Kazakhstan71; Кронос трейд (Kronos Trade), founded 1998,

also a polycarbonate producer (possibly the same company) 72; Kronos Logistics

Kronos Capital websites hint at links with Athena Group and/or Ukrainian

government investment company


 One source says the website kronos capital.biz is the website of Kronos Capital

Ltd.76
 Other directories identify it as the website of Kyiv-based Kronos Capital

Holdings, aka Kronos Capital (Ukraine).77


 The Ukraine based Kronos Capital Holdings Ltd is based in the Cayman Islands

and also has a representation on ul. Staraya basmannaya, 7, bldg 2 in Moscow,

which was registered in 2007.78


o The website Kronos capital.biz cannot be viewed because is expired. It

was reportedly created 12 Dec 2008, but since 2011 it says “website

coming soon.”79
o The cached version from 4 Oct 2010 [days after Tevfik Arif’s arrest] has

indexes leading to various documents related to Ukrainian real estate,

including what appear to be documents related to projects including

Brigantina V, apparently a development in Vinnitsya begun in 2007;

Fenix; Kaspiy Hotel; TL Group, a set of automotive supply companies

owned by Cruseto Holdings, which sought in 2009 to buy shares from

ATR International AG; and Kodra glass plant, with documents from

2010.80 A folder entitled “USAID” had no cached copy available.


o
 One item in the cached index of the website Kronos capital.biz hints at a

Ukrainian government link. It was a September 2009 PowerPoint describing a

Ukrainian state enterprise called InvestUkraine.


o One might think it is simply a random document that Kronos Capital had

downloaded onto its hard drive.


o However, there is a significant name match: Yaroslav Mykuliak CFA

(b)(6) ) is identified as the Director of Research and

Project Development for this Ukrainian state enterprise.81


o Yaroslav Mykuliak is identified on one whois site as the registrant of the

Arif Arif: Link to Doyen

User bellachkaa, whose instagram accounts appeared in a keyword searches for

Ayla’s name, appears to be that of Anabel Arifova, apparently a younger sister.

Users with whom she has corresponded leave comments on it, and bellachkaa

identifies herself as a Columbia or Barnard graduate and says she left London in

2014.. 83
 One comment is from Julia1963, who could be her mother aka Gulnara, who

was born in 1963. A search for “Julia1963” yielded many hits for widely varying

people. It would take much research to identify which were Julia Arif.
 One comment is from an “arif6455”. This could be from Kronos co owner Arif

Arif, the likely brother.


 Arif6455 is “followed” on social media by the social media account of

Doyen Global, according to a Google keyword search result .84


 Vika Krutaya (Berkovich) (composer Igor Krutoy’s daughter, pictured below at

a wedding reception with Ayla) corresponds with and follows Arif6455.85


 Soccer interest: Arif6455 makes a comment in 19 Dec 2009 on a page

discussing Manchester United. He claims the Glazers (the then owners) had no

money over, even after selling Ronaldo , because they were paying interest

payments on debts. “THERE IS NO MONEY FOR SAF TO SPEND BECAUSE THERE

IS A INTERNAL CRISIS AT THE CLUB WHICH IS BEING WITHHELD FROM THE

FANS.”.86 Arif6455 seems deeply involved in the subject.

Ayla hobnobs with the daughters of industrialists and pop stars

“Society lady Klarisa Mashitskaya; Ayla Arifova, Columbia University Student; and

singer Viktoriya Krutaya,” at the wedding of Lada Shefler and Vladimir

Troyanovskiy, at a villa in Tuscany. 87

A photo from a society wedding (above) shows Ayla with other rich people:
 Viktoriya Krutaya (Berkovich), the adopted daughter of famous composer and

society man Igor Krutoy. Vika corresponds with Ayla on social media.88 Vika

also follows and corresponds on social media with Arif6455, Ayla’s apparent

brother. 89
 Also in the photo is Klarisa Mashitskaya, who could be the daughter of Vitaliy

Mashchitskiy, crime linked ex policeman from Irkutsk who became a partner of

Shalva Chigirinskiy’s ST Group in 1997 (see 23July16Report).


 The bride is the daughter of Stolichnaya vodka magnate Yuriy Shefler of the SPI

Group.90 The groom plays professional poker. He and family members were

directors of MNV Systems Limited, registered in the BVI in 2007 and now

defunct.91

 If Ayla graduated from college in 2009, she would have been born about 1987. If

she were Tevfik and Gulnara’s daughter, the father would have been 34 and the

mother 24 when she was born.92


 Her Facebook page shows her wearing a white dress that could be a wedding

dress. 93
 A Vebidoo and Instagram page appear to show the same Ayla holding a baby.94
Her username on that page is ayla2209.

A search for ayla2209 produces evidence of friendship with another politically

involved rich Russian émigré, but also a perplexing reference to terrorism.

 Mariya Baybakova (Baibakova) the Hilary Clinton fundraiser whose father,

industrialist Oleg Baybakov, is a director of Mikhail Prokhorov’s Oneksim

Development, partnered with shady Maksim Finskiy, and bought up Miami real

estate in 2014 (see 30July16 and 2Aug16 Reports) had attended ayla2209’s

wedding.95
o Baibakova’s art gallery page is one of Ayla’s Facebook favorites, along

with Ivanka Trump’s page.


o Baibakova’s photo of Ayla and her groom appears furtive but shows the

luxury of the décor.


o The photo appears in Baibakova’s Instagram gallery right after photos of

the Artspace Dinner at London’s Institute of Contemporary Art, which

apparently took place 4 June 2013. Anna Machkevitch (related to ENRC’s

Mashkevich?) played a prominent role in photos of that dinner.96 The

order of photos in her gallery may not be exactly chronological, because

something dated 8.06.2013 appears before the photos of the Artspace

dinner.97

“The bride and groom @ayla2209,” from Maria Baibakova’s Instagram.98

 Maybe this was the secretive wedding held in May 2013 in Sardinia, which the

Italian author appeared to think was the wedding of Tevfik himself (see

14Dec15Report). Possible confirmation of this is that the page on which

Baybakova posted the wedding photos was created in 2013, judging from “page

info.”
 The cascading lavender flowers of the decor resemble those in the wedding that

Ayla and Vika Krutaya attended (see photo above)

 Ayla2209, whose avatar shows the same picture with a baby, posted on an

Ivanka Trump Instagram picture, with the comment “@Bellachka1229.”99 That

username appears to be an alternative nickname for little sister Anabel.

The tweet included a picture of a tweet from @Ayla2009 showing the ISIS logo with

a rose (below).

User Anonylox responded with a tweet that seemed to indicate that Ayla2209 had

been suspended:

“@anonzeus3 @Ayla2209 @safety #tangodown106

Indeed, Twitter says the account http://twitter.com/ayla2009 has been suspended.

No cached copies could be found.

Who is Anonzeus3? The Twitter bio links to the website ghostsec.info, a counter
terrorism intel group. In an interview with cyber expert Pierluigi Paganini, this user

wrote, “I am known as Zeus (Zeus Anon @anonzeus3 on twitter, Zeus1 on Anonops).

I have been involved in anti ISIS operations since the ISIS took over Kobane a couple

of years back. …. I am currently Admin staff on Anonops , #OpIceISIS and

#OpDDosISIS..”107
Who is Anonylox?: Anonylox also retweets pro Putin messages critical of the US

and British establishment by a user named @Ian56789 who claims to be a stock

market trader. This Ian also quotes Trump advisor Michael Flynn. Anonylox joined

Twitter in August 2012 and put this for a bio: “This may be the beginning of a new

chapter in an old book. Our society is broken, our keepers are corrupt. We will not

forgive.”

Is this Ayla2209 the same as Ayla Arifova? The Ayla2209 Twitter account in the

screenshot simply has the name “Ayla,” whereas the Ayla2209 Instagram account

has the name “Ayla Arifova.” Therefore the Daesh Ayla could be anybody. However,

it is odd that the Daesh user would choose the same rather obscure number that

Luzhkov connection in yacht orgy raid?

The Turkish raid on the Savarona yacht orgy took place 28 September 2010, the

exact same day that Yuriy Luzhkov was ousted from the Moscow mayoralty.

Coincidence?
 This coincidence of dates was pointed out by a financial analyst quoted by Radio

Liberty.
 That author theorizes that then president Medvedev hastily fired Luzhkov

because of his ties with Arif and Ismailov, so the yacht scandal would not harm

Russia’s reputation.108
 This seems unlikely. Mayor Luzhkov had already been under pressure for at

least a month before his formal ouster.

However, it is worth considering the possibility that Turkish and Russian authorities

coordinated the timing of the yacht takedown and Luzhkov’s ouster.


 Could the arrest of Telman Ismailov or one of the other oligarchs on the yacht be

part of a one two punch against Luzhkov and his powerful allies?
 Could the takedown have been timed to prevent Luzhkov from calling on allies

to defend him? Perhaps allies with armed thugs at their disposal to protect

Luzhkov? If Ismailov, Arif or others were powerful allies of Luzhkov, catching

them literally with their pants down on the yacht would prevent them from

defending Luzhkov.
o Such a scenario is plausible. When Russian law enforcement arrested

Said Amirov, the wheelchair bound corrupt mayor of Makhachkala,

Dagestan in 2013, they carried out a military style raid with helicopters

because they feared his allies might forcibly defend the mayor.
o Luzhkov himself “can count on 200,000 loyal “bayonets,” quartered in

Moscow and the surrounding region,” according to a 1999 report. 109

 It would have been complicated for Turkish and Russian authorities to make

those two dates coincide, because each was preceded by a long period of

preparation. Further research would be necessary to follow up on this

possibility.

More information on some of the people involved in the yacht orgy

Telman Ismailov may be especially close to ENRC’s Aleksandr Mashkevich, if it

is true that Ismailov is Mashkevich’s deputy chief of the Euroasiatic Jewish

Congress.110

Arbi Gayrabekov, another of the Russian businessmen caught on the yacht, is a

sidekick of Musa Bazhayev.


 Gayrabekov is a vice president of Russian Platinum, most of whose leaders come

from Bazhayev’s Alyans Oil company. 111


 They are Chechen.
 Gayrabekov graduated from Odessa Technological Institute in 1996, was

involved in unspecified “entrepreneurial activity” from 1995 2011, then worked

at OOO Alitek from 2011 2012, and was at Russkaya platina since 2012. There

are several companies called Alitek. It would take some research to figure out

which one.

The Bazhayev family allegedly conspired with Mikhail Chernoy in the theft of a

billion dollars from Russia’s Central Bank in the 1990s using false IOUs, according to

widespread rumors cited in a 2007 article. 112


 The Chechen accomplices wanted their share of the money, say the author’s law

enforcement sources.
 Musa’s brother Ziya Bazhayev died in an airplane crash in 2000 that some

aviation specialists suspect was not an accident.


 The Alyans Group’s main activity as of 2007 was in Ukraine, where it owned 165

gas stations and the Kherson refinery. It also had a joint venture with Shell. The

Alyans Group also owned a refinery in the Khabarovsk region in Russia’s Far

East.

Possible Bazhayev-Torshin link?


 Another brother, Mavlit Bazhayev, proposed creating a national project to

encourage migration from the North Caucasus region to sparsely settled land in

Siberia and the Far East. This somewhat resembles various resettlement

schemes promoted by former Deputy Speaker Aleksandr Torshin113 (a member

of the NRA and a person accused by Spanish authorities of ties with the Russian

mafia there).

Bazhayev link to Kadyrov and Putin


 Musa Bazhayev met with Vladimir Putin at the presidential estate in Novo
Ogarevo in July 2006 and promised that Alyans Oil Company would spend

$50mln refurbishing the Oil Institute in Grozny and building a hospital and

schools in Achkoy Martan, Chechnya.

Bazhayev link with Dmitriy Shumkov, who was found hanged in Moskva-siti in

in December 2015:
 We saw in the 7May16 report that Musa Bazhayev helped Dmitriy Shumkov

acquire Moscow real estate.


 Shumkov’s relations with the Bazhayev clan later reportedly cooled; in June 2015,

Shumkov said he wanted to exit the Norilsk-1 project he was involved in with

Bazhayev.114
 Former Rosneft director and Sechin protégé Eduard Khudaynatov bought Bazhayev’s

Alyans Group in 2014, possibly to legalize shady money. Critical commentator

Yuliya Latynina says Shumkov may have siphoned money from this deal and been

murdered in revenge for this.115


 Another possibility raised in a comment to an article on Shumkov’s death is that he

knew too much. Just before his death, Andrey Arkhangelskiy, a friend of Shumkov

and an officer of the Mosinzhproyekt contractor, was sentenced to 3.5 years in jail.

“The sad events happening to [Arkhangelskiy] may have caused the death of

[Shumkov].”116
