In light of the recent news from Vladimir Kozlov, I read somewhere that in Nazi Germany, the European relatives of concentration camp prisoners (before the mass shootings), received the bills for the execution of their loved ones: they had to pay the price of the bullets used and so on. Today I learned that Kazakhtelecom (main shareholder of Samruk Kazyna), the national carrier, has filed a lawsuit against Volodya. This is the same situation as in Nazi Germany! He was imprisoned, the property was confiscated, and now they issued an invoice for services rendered to the confiscated real property. Isn't it convenient? It's not enough for them that they imprisoned a political opponent, now he also has to pay the cost of maintenance of the property which was confiscated from him! It is sad. Although, why should I be surprised? Since we were already forced to pay more than 800 000 tenge in legal costs for so-called expertise - some rubbish written by Grachev and others involved in the criminal case on somebody's order... We did not participate in the full process of making a decision on the appointment of examinations, we did not put questions to experts, the experts forged the source material, they made a conclusion which was convenient for the investigators, and as a result, everyone was convicted, and we were forced to pay for it all... Kazakhstan has learned some history lessons very well.
