Find out the new mysterious details of the sale of the royal family owned mansion.

On paper, everything looked like a completely transparent transaction: Sunninghill Park, the former family nest of Prince Andrew, was sold for £ 15 million by an offshore company ...

The Sunday Times found out that the successful bidder was a successful 29-year-old Kazakh businessman, Kenes Rakishev. A source informed of the deal reported that Rakishev turned the matter over with his father-in-law - the mayor of Astana (the capital of Kazakhstan), Imangali Tasmagambetov.

Andrew, familiar with both Rakishev and Tasmagambetov, refused to talk about the owner of his former home, which he received as a gift from the Queen on the occasion of his marriage to Ferguson.

Both Kazakhs say that the ultimate owners of Sunninghill Park are not them. Rakishev confirmed that he was negotiating with Andrew about the purchase, but he refused to name the true "owner".

Meanwhile, two even more prominent representatives of the Kazakh world are related to the notorious deal, and Andrew is associated with them a much closer relationship than with Rakishev and his father-in-law.

It is said that the 28-year-old Kazakh businesswoman Gauhar "Goga" Ashkenazi, who is often seen with Andrew, told her friends that she is the owner of Sunninghill Park. She also allegedly reported that she was going to demolish the building, and in its place to build something else.

This year, "BTA Bank" was very oddly "sold" by the state fund "Samruk-Kazyna" to the second-largest bank "Kazkommertsbank" and Kenesu Rakishev - one of the closest partners of President Timur Kulibayev's son-in-law.

Given that Rakishev is the "front" of Kulibayev in most of the business projects, one can no doubt call Kulibayev one of the key owners of the illegally nationalized "BTA Bank."

The former controlling owner, Nurzhan Subkhanberdin, gradually lost control of his KKB and therefore, with respect to BTA, KKB follows Karim Massimov's instructions and adheres to the "party line" in pursuing Ablyazov.

In BTA Kenes Rakishev personally exercises control over the processes against Mukhtar Ablyazov. And about what is happening he reports Masimov personally.

In 2013, Ismailov returned to Chechen football. At the beginning of the year he organized a friendly match between the "Terek" Kadyrov and the Israeli club "Beitar" (Jerusalem), owned by his friend Arkady Gaydamak. The match ended with a score 0: 0. And the owners of the clubs agreed on the transition to "Beitar" of two Chechen football players - Zaur Sadayev and Dzhabrail Kadiev. What caused the anger of Beitar fans who did not want to see Muslims among the players of the club.

Partly precisely because of the protests of the fans Gaydamak confirmed in the desire to sell the club. He announced that he is selling Beitar to Ismailov and his partners: State Duma deputy and Kadyrov's adviser Adam Delimkhanov and Kenes Rakishev, Kazakh businessman and the son-in-law of the Kazakh defense minister. But the fans of "Beitar" also broke this deal. After this failure Ismailov withdrew from Chechen football: the sponsor of "Terek" was Rakishev's structure instead.

The British prince Andrew received 4 million pounds as a "kickback" for helping to organize a deal worth 385 million pounds through Kenes Rakishev. This news from the filing of mega-popular in the UK newspaper Daily Mail blew up public opinion.

But what actually happened was that it was able to thoroughly "shake" the British throne? Nothing special, if you look from the point of view of Kazakhstani practice. Two companies - Greek and Swiss - formed a consortium, which decided to take up construction of water pipes and sewerage in Almaty and Astana. In the process, we decided to seek consultations with Prince Andrew, who already earned a reputation as a "specialist in Kazakhstan." As a result, a commission was formed for the Prince for a consultation - one percent.

After receiving the good, Prince Andrew asked for support from Kazakhstan businessman Kenec Rakishev, who quickly organized several meetings with the heads of Astana and Almaty for the royal person. And 4 million pounds migrated into the pockets of the royal man.

At the disposal of the editorial staff was a document, from which it follows that two years ago a young Kazakh businessman Kenes Rakishev was already "worth" $ 1.687 billion. This is two times more than it "weighs" up to now according to the official version of "Forbes". Let's see what is hidden in his piggy bank?

Let's start with the assets, issued personally by Kenes Khamitovich himself. These are 9 business projects, of which only 8 were valued, and one was in the "process" of either clearance or launch. Total for this section Rakishev "weighed" 787 million dollars, which is comparable to the assessment of the Kazakhstan version of "Forbes".


However, a part of Kenes Rakishev's assets was registered with his wife Asel Tasmagambetov, daughter of Imangali Tasmagambetov, and Sofya Tasmagambetova, the second daughter of the Kazakh defense minister and sister of Asely. The first were "hanged" five projects, valued at 101 million dollars, the second - the same 5, but the cost of only $ 14 million.

Further in the table there is a section entitled "Prospectuses". We do not know whether this is a reservation or Kenes Rakishev's employees have so decided to call major business projects that will lead their master into a bright future. Among them, besides "BTA Bank" and "Kazkommertsbank" are mentioned "Almaty-Metrostroy", Investment Fund "Amanat" and "Kaznickel". These five projects were pulled as much as $ 750 million, and their prospective value is estimated at 2.885 billion dollars.

In the section "Property" there are 5 objects, including houses in Moscow, Astana and Almaty, an apartment in Paris and a collection of cars. Their total cost is estimated at 77 million dollars. Section "Other assets" pulled by $ 308 million, of which 198 million were in trust, that is trust management, 60 million were in Singapore, and 50 million were cost two business-class aircraft.

Thus, according to the document, in early 2014 Kenes Rakishev owned assets, including shares and securities, movable and immovable property, cash in banks and trust for a total of $ 2.037 billion. At the same time, Rakishev's liabilities were estimated at $ 350 million. The latter consisted of debts to two banks and other debts that were not decrypted in the file.

In other words, two years ago Kenes Rakishev, judging by this document, "cost" 1.687 billion dollars.

A warm July evening on the Cote d'Azur of France came into its own. A quiet street in the center of Saint-Tropez, almost deserted by day, was already filled with luxury cars. On the carpet, through the quivering air from the southern heat, towards the small chalet located in the depths of the well-tended vineyard Domaine Bertaud Belieu, the respectable gentlemen in tuxedos moved slowly with their charming companions in flowing dresses ...

Meanwhile in the hall the Russian speech was heard more clearly. It was possible to find Ukrainian entrepreneurs and deputies of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Alexander Onishchenko, announced in the international wanted list, and Vitaly Khomutynnik. Not far from them, at different tables, are billionaires from Kazakhstan - aluminum tycoon Alexander Mashkevich and banker Kenes Rakishev. In the corner at that time, the former Chechen senator Umar Dzhabrailov, who was peering uneasily into the depths of the hall, was hiding.

An involuntary participant in a major scandal involving Ramzan Kadyrov and his sons was a Kazakh entrepreneur Kenes Rakishev, who was present at the celebration of the 40th anniversary of the authoritarian Chechen leader and was a spectator of children's fights without rules, which the head of Chechnya gave to himself as a gift to himself.

This is not the first time that Kenes Rakishev, the chairman of the board of directors of Kazkommertsbank JSC, falls into the field of view of journalists as a great friend of Ramzan Kadyrov, whose reputation was already not indisputable, and after using them in the literal sense of whipping boys, finally deteriorated. However, Mr. Rakishev has not publicly expressed his attitude to the childish battles that shocked not only the Russian but also the Kazakh public, which, incidentally, one of the participants was the son of Ramzan Kadyrov, as the referee loudly announced, knocked out at 12 seconds.

Recall that Kenes Rakishev and Ramzan Kadyrov were great friends in July 2015 on his Facebook page, told the head of Chechnya himself, who decided to congratulate the businessman from Kazakhstan with warm words.

Kazakhstan millionaire Kenes Rakishev used the services of the famous Moscow pimp, Peter Listerman. And "Ochkarik" supplied the oligarch with not just beautiful models, among them, probably, were fifteen-year-old girls ...

Analysis of correspondence shows that the cooperation began in 2007, when the assistant "Ochkarika" (Listerman's nickname - the author) sent Rakishev photos of two girls with comments that one of them is designed by Kenes himself, the second "for the elder". The speech may go as a son-in-law of Nazarbayev Timur Kulibayev, with whom Rakishev is closely connected ...

In 2012, the situation takes an interesting turn. July 11 Listerman sends Rakishev letter about "Elenu S.", which contains only a video with 15-year-old Elena Selezneva. On the record the girl defile and it seems, her age is clearly heard ...

Instead of the answer, the oligarch gets another video with 21-year-old Matilda Romanova and 17-year-old Alina Marasik - another minor girl. Both unassuming young men Kenes Rakishev calls "super variants" ...

Kazakh businessman Kenes Rakishev and Russian oligarch Iskander Makhmudov sent a former employee of the RUBOP, Eduard Budantsev, to Jeanne Kim to resolve the conflict with designer Fatima Misikova, for whom the "thief in law" "Shakro Molodoy" stood up for, "Dozhd" TV channel reported citing sources.

By the way, earlier the head of Chechnya Ramzan Kadyrov called Rakishev in one of the Instagram posts his friend and "prince of the people". According to the television channel, the Kazakh businessman sponsored the opening of the restaurant Kim, and then she turned to the patron for help on December 14, when she came to demand the debt of representatives of designer Fatima Misikova, close associates of Shakro Molodoy.

On February 3, 2017, Kenes Rakishev's father-in-law Imangali Tasmagambetov was appointed extraordinary and plenipotentiary ambassador of the Republic of Kazakhstan to the Russian Federation. On March 16, 2017, he presented his credentials to Putin.

Of course, this post is important. But it is still clear that with the relocation of Tasmagambetov to Moscow, his influence on Kazakhstan's affairs weakened.

Some Kazakh media directly linked this honorable link to Tasmagambetov with the banking activities of his son-in-law. "The way the president attacked Kazakhstan banks on February 3 may speak in favor of the version about growing disloyalty towards Tasmagambetov. After all, the controlling stake in the largest player in the domestic banking market - Kazkommertsbank - belongs to the son-in-law of the newly appointed Ambassador Kenes Rakishev. Recall, then the head of state said that banks should solve their liquidity problems without the help of the state, "comments 365info.kz, an information and analytical portal. "At the same time, some six months ago no one in Kazakhstan doubted that in case of problems the state would help the largest banks fulfill their financial obligations."

However, the main asset of Kenes Rakishev, which allowed such a high take off is family ties, or rather, a successful marriage. Rakishev is the son-in-law of Imangali Tasmagambetov - currently Kazakhstan's Ambassador to Russia. However, in the domestic political cuisine of Kazakhstan, Tasmagambetov is a bit more than just an ambassador. Former Prime Minister of Kazakhstan, headed the Administration of the President, and in the most unstable period in the international arena (2014-2016) he headed the Ministry of Defense of the country. But most importantly, already now Tasmagambekov is considered as the main successor of Nursultan Nazarbayev. The last, we will remind, 76 years.

However, there is one weakness in Kenes Rakishev, which not only destroys his family personally, but also jeopardizes the overall sovereign future of Kazakhstan. Rakishev likes to communicate in the circle of escort models, girlish girls of world renown, and in some cases, does not disdain minors ...

Rakisheva Listerman provides girls regularly. One of the brightest is the top model from Yaroslavl, Dasha Konovalova, who won in 2010 at the contest "Beauty of Russia". They say that Rakishev does not disdain and the 15-16-year-old girls who Liderman follow at a "special price".

Pick up Rakishev chic girls in the international arena. So at a similar price of 40 thousand dollars Kazakh multimillionaire organized a meeting with the star Instagram and Hollywood secular parties Chelsea Pereira (starred in the episode of the seventh "Fast and the Furious"), as well as her model girlfriend Tierra Carlson.
