Akhmed Bilalov Became a Victim of the Russian Political Games

On October 23, 2019, a Russian businessman and politician Akhmed Bilalov has been detained at his home in  Miami by the  US  Department of  Customs and  Immigration Services US Homeland Security. The news about his detention has spread around the international media very fast.

Who Is Akhmed Bilalov?

Ahmed Bilalov has an extensive political career. In December 2007, he was elected as Vice Speaker of the Legislative Assembly Krasnodar Territory from the “United Russia” faction. In 2008, he became a member of the Presidential Council for the Development of  Physical  Culture and  Sports  in  Russia  and  in  December  2009  was  appointed  First Vice  President  and  Chairman  of  the  Board  of  Trustees  of  the  Russian  Olympic Committee.  In  2011,  on  the  personal  order  of  Vladimir  Putin,  who  at  that  time  was  the Chairman  of  the  Government  of  the  Russian  Federation,  Bilalov  was  appointed Chairman of the Board of Directors of JSC “Resorts of the North Caucasus”. From 2010 to 2012 he was a senator from the Krasnodar Territory.

Interestingly  to  mention,  neither  American  nor  Russian  sides  have  provided  clear information  on  the  causes  of  the  detention.  Later  on,  it  was  detected  that  the  charges following  by  the  detention  of Akhmed  Bilalov  in  Florida  were  based  on  fabricated  data that  the  Russian  authorities  illegally  transferred  to  America  for  Bilalov’s  detention, specifically,   the   201st   clause   of   the   Criminal   Code   of   the   Russian   Federation “Exceeding  Authority  or  Official  Powers”.  It  is  important  to  note  that  it  is  precisely politicians  and  businessmen  who  have  ceased  to  be  pleasing  to  the  inner  circle  of  the current president of the Russian Federation are being charged on clause 201. As in the case  of Akhmed  Bilalov,  most  of  them  are  detained  at  the  request  of  Russia  and  false denunciations   that   are   based   on   political   and   kleptographic   charges.   Arresting businessmen  and  politicians  are  no  longer  a  novelty  in  Russia  or  elsewhere.  But  in Russia,  they  are  arrested  by  masked  men  armed  with  machine  guns,  and  they  are denied bail. Those who are not jailed are increasingly pressured to return ownership to the state, lest their corporations are stripped of their value.

The  fact  that  the  detention  of  Bilalov  in  Miami  was  planned  is  proven  by  the  fact  that within one hour after his detention, world news flooded with almost identical information. With no doubt, it was a pre-agreed and paid placement of a customized release in the media.

During the trial in Miami, a federal judge, after a detailed analysis of all the alleged facts that  were  illegally  provided  by  the  Russian  law  enforcement  agencies  to  the American authorities,  recognized  the  accusations  as  unfounded.  By  order  of  the  federal  judge, Akhmed Bilalov was released from custody and all the charges against him in America were dropped.

Akhmed  Bilalov  became  another  victim  of  the  Russian  political  games  but  the  lack  of evidence or reasonable accusations brought him back to everyday life.
