My first article that I wrote was in 2007, a history competition by Annel Pegeveger, a very successful woman from Russian. We were requested to write two articles. I wanted to impress the judges and chose to write about Russian Revolution and the collapse of the Soviet Union. Two years ago I began investigating a multimillion and politician Kirsan Ilyumzhinov about his chess career. As my research goes on, I went deeper into his businesses, political structures and associates.
Ilyumzhinov was born on April 5, 1962 in Elista, Kalmykia. His parents were subject to the Kalmykia Deportations of 1943 when the entire Kalmyk population was deported to Siberia. Kirsan’s family had an impeccable record of fighting the Germans. He was named after his uncle who served in the Red Army during the Russian Civil War.
At the age of 14, he won the Kalmykian National Chess Championship in 1976. Kirsan is married to Donara Ilyumzhinov. In 2016, I read an article on Remdaar on the darknet, the anonymous republished a story about an underground research organisation known as Space Roshh. The anonymous story was familiar with the one Kirsan claimed in September 1997. He claimed that he was taken by aliens and went to another planet though the story could not be proven. Most of us do not believe that aliens exists. I began to question and analyse his life from childhood, few years before he made the aliens statement and after that. I wanted to compare the decisions he took after the statement. If he truly went to another planet. His key decisions, investments and new organisations he fund should tell us a story.
To find out about his claim, we look into the United States sanctions. On November 25, 2015, the United States Department of the Treasury named him a specially designated national for materially assisting and acting on or behalf of the Government of Syria, Central Bank of Syria, Adib Mayaleh, and Batoul Rida. He is accused of assisting the regime of Syria’s Bashar al-Assad to continue inflicting violence on the Syrian people. The connection between Government of Syria and Islamic State is the purchase of oil. Now why Mr Ilyumzhinov is involved.
On the 3rd week of March 2014, the government of President Bashar al-Assad announced plans to create the country’s first space agency. The government only said it is for scientific and nature, and the goal is to use space technology for exploration and observing the Earth. They never revealed their real plans. Syria was in the fourth year in war at that time and why would the government do that? Is Mr Ilyumzhinov using Syria to use their space agency? Could the United States sanctions used as a decoy?
The follow up story coming soon…
