Openness is fashionable in this century. The “financial bikini” is worn to one degree or another by all the rich in the country. Their mouth-watering assets are exposed to society, and everyone knows that such and such a bank belongs to such and such, and such and such a developer is the property of such and such a businessman. Kazakhstan lags behind fashion a little, but generally stumbles behind it.
And only a few moneybags continue to play in secrecy. One of the most outstanding examples is Kairat Satybaldy. Rumor has it that in order not to be included in the Forbes list, Elbasy’s nephew pays hefty money to the respected franchise.
Otherwise, it is difficult to explain Forbes’ lack of attention to Kairat Satybaldy. Indeed: the list includes his relatives, relatives and friends. And he himself is not. Although the fact that the state of Kairat Satybaldy has exceeded a billion is known to everyone. And the builder of three-story cakes is no different with an emphatically ascetic life. What is Satybaldyuly Kairat hiding?
Considering that the Forbes-50 2021 list now includes citizens with a total fortune of $ 80 million, Elbasy’s nephew has managed to drastically become impoverished since 2018. Then he last entered the list with an estimated fortune of $ 163 million. Based on this, it is easy to calculate that he “poorer” by at least $ 83 million – and did not earn a dime. The assumption that all this was devoured by his comrade-in-arms in Nur Otan and his passion for equestrian football with dead rams Bekbolat Tleukhan is too free: so much was not allocated for a stupid adventure, the “party” of the KHAK. There remains only one assumption, and it is the most unflattering – Kairat Satybaldy simply does not have income and assets that he could honestly declare. According to the official dossier, he is really, miraculously, only “the managing partner of Alatau Capital Invest” and “a shareholder of the holding JSC Kaspi”.
Kairat Satybaldy, goat-breaking champion, and his sports team
It is clear that Kairat Satybaldy is a fairly well-known smuggler, even I would say, the country’s main smuggler. Import flows are largely controlled by him and his relatives. You cannot write this into assets. But there are other assets, namely the Luxembourg ones. I have not checked, but maybe Kairat Satybaldy is on the Forbes List of the Benelux? Then that explains everything.
It turned out that Kazakhtelecom – the monopoly legacy of the USSR – has been largely owned by Skyline Investment Company S.A. at least since 2018. and its only shareholder – Kairat Satybaldy. And there can be a lot of such companies – just not all jurisdictions told about it. But another company associated with Satybaldy, the already mentioned Alatau Capital Invest, also the minority owner of Kazakhtelecom is famous for the fact that in the crisis year for the country in 2020 he paid taxes in the amount of … 11 tenge. On the other hand, Skyline Investment Company regularly receives deductions from Kazakhstan and pays taxes from it, supporting the good duke and his country. Such is the cheerful kok-boru, in the role of a ram – the people of Kazakhstan.
And here is what Kairat’s uncle says about this:
“… WE WILL START LOOKING FOR TAXED MONEY ALL OVER THE WORLD. PROBABLY YOU SEEN EVERYTHING, THE PROSECUTOR GENERAL WAVE EVERYWHERE, SIGNED AN AGREEMENT ON LEGAL AID WITH THE LARGEST COUNTRIES EVERYWHERE … … THERE WILL NOT BE ANY OFFSHORE. WE OFFER VOLUNTARY TO OPEN MONEY AND SLEEP QUIETLY, DO NOT TURN WHEN THE DOOR RING, “NAZARBAYEV SAID.
Why didn’t kok-boru take place in politics?
It is a pity, sincerely a pity that Bekbolat Tleukhan’s daughter-in-law turned out to be unworthy of a high level of trust and profiled the party treasury of the KHAK, entrusted to her, as well as the movement itself, the “party”. I think Bekbolat Tleukhan, Kairat Satybaldy and undoubtedly Togzhan Kozhalieva would have fought so gloriously for “national ideals”, “people’s spirituality” and “against corruption” that it would have been a feast for the eyes.
