Moscow thieves in law and Azerbaijani billionaires cooperate
In 2014 Azerbaijani billionaires of Jewish decent God Nisanov and Zarakh Iliyev launched Food City project in Moscow. The mayor of Moscow Sergey Sobyanin was present at the opening of the market which was to supply fruits and vegetables to the Russian market.
With the support of the Moscow authorities the two businessmen have gained great fortune. The yearly income of their joint multi-profile company “Kiyev Square” makes 1.1 billion euros.
In 2014 with the assistance of Sobyanin they carried out their biggest project – opened wholesale market Food City the territory of which makes 346.000 sq. m. The representatives of the wholesale trade though refused to sale their products in Food City. For decades the big fruit and vegetable importers were selling their products in other places where “thief in laws” were ruling.
The conditions offered by Nisanov and Iliyev did not satisfy them, besides if they had agreed they would have serious problems with criminal world. In short, the “thieves in law” managed to keep the Food City empty and the businessmen were not getting any income from it. But they found a way out. They met with their compatriot thief in law Vagif Suleymanov who conducted negotiations with the criminal world’s king Zakhar Kalashov who said that they must persuade people choose their platform.
“As a result the majority of the biggest fruit and vegetable importers moved to Food City and the flow of money to their pockets started. The law enforcers are well aware of the situation but they do not see any criminal in it- the documents are in order,” Russian rumafia.com website writes.
