The Russian successful and respected politician was accused of unreasonable spending of funds, including the amount of 3 million rubles spent on a trip to London in 2012. At that time Bilalov served as vice president of the Russian Olympic Committee and his position implied frequent flights of the politician on a private business jet at the expense of funds from the budget. Despite this opportunity, Akhmed Bilalov paid for a round-trip flight to the capital of Great Britain out of his pocket. He was going on a private jet for the presentation of the project of the tourist cluster "Resorts of the North Caucasus". The Prime Minister of the Russian Federation Dmitry Kozak and his wife and the Governor of the Krasnodar Territory Alexander Tkachev and his wife flew to London together with Bilalov on the same board. For obvious reason, no one was accused of spending the budget funds. This situation became even more complicated who Bilalov moved to the United States.
At the end of October 2019, Akhmed Bilalov was taken into custody by officers of the US Customs and Immigration Service under the US Department of Homeland Security. The charges were based on fabricated information that the Russian authorities illegally transferred to the US. It is noteworthy, the majority of Russian politicians and businessmen, who are no longer needed by the inner circle of the current Russian government, are accused of abusing power. As in the case of Akhmed Bilalov, most of them are detained in the United States at the request of Russia and false denunciations based on political and kleptographic accusations.
The detention of Bilalov in the US followed a well-planned scenario. This is confirmed by the fact that exactly 40 minutes after he was taken into custody, world news channels began to publish identical texts. However, the outcome of the detention did not meet the expectations of those who paid for it. The detention was not followed by either the arrest or, moreover, the deportation of Akhmed Bilalov to Russia.
Criminal prosecutions and charges against Bilalov began after the inner circle of the current government started talking about claims that had arisen against the business of Bilalov's relative, Russian businessman Ziyavudin Magomedov. Bilalov was removed from his posts, later, so that he did not interfere, a criminal case was put together from nothing. There were numerous accusations, threats, and even an attempt at poisoning.
In the spring of 2013, Akhmed Bilalov felt unwell and asked Professor Wolfgang Kelling for examination at the Clinic of Practical Medicine in Baden-Baden, who had been observing Bilalov for more than 15 years. It should be noted that all these years, the patient did not have any significant health problems. At the request of a German clinic in one of the laboratories, tests established more than tenfold excess of the mercury content in Bilalov's blood. German doctors carried out the necessary treatment on time and were able to stabilize the state of the Russian businessman. The source of infection was in the Moscow office of OJSC "Resorts of the North Caucasus". It can hardly be considered a coincidence that the deterioration in the health of the Russian businessman was undertaken by German Gref, followed by threats to Bilalov. But, as one would expect, in Russia the case of poisoning was not initiated.
After successful treatment in a German clinic, Akhmed Bilalov left for the United States, where he happily lived with his family. The situation changed dramatically in October 2019, when the inner circle of the current Russian government again saw in Akhmed Bilalov a threat.
At this time in Russia, after the failed elections of "United Russia" to the Moscow City Duma, the highest circles started talking about the global changes that await the country. Including possible changes to the current Constitution of the Russian Federation. In an atmosphere of growing opposition, the resignation of the current government of the country, early elections to the State Duma of the Russian Federation, or even early presidential elections were allowed. Each significant political figure began to prepare for this. As one of the options, the head of state Dmitry Medvedev could return, who actively fought against the inner circle of the current government, limited its influence, and signed laws on the protection of business rights in the country. The return of Medvedev also meant the return of his strong team, which the politician fully trusted. The inner circle of the existing government could not allow this to happen. It was necessary to discredit as quickly as possible everyone who might come to change the government. This was the start of the process on the charge and international search for Ahmed Bilalov and the subsequent detention in Florida.
After a detailed analysis of all the facts illegally provided by Russian law enforcement agencies to the American authorities, a federal judge during a trial in Miami found the charges unfounded and put forward by the Russian side with the aim of political persecution and pressure on Akhmed Bilalov to illegally take away all the assets of the Russian businessman, as was done with his cousin Magomedov. By order of a federal judge, Bilalov was released from the pre-trial detention center and all charges in the US were dropped. Based on the same facts, Bilalov was removed from the Interpol wanted list, where he was put on false persecution based on political and kleptographic accusations.
