Markov processes on the ring of adeles are constructed, as the limits of Markov chains on some countable sets consisting of subsets of the direct product of real and p-adic fields. As particular cases, we have adelic valued semistable processes. Then it is shown that the values of the Chebyshev function, whose asymptotics is closely related to the zero-free region of the Riemann zeta function, are represented by the expectation of the first exit time for these processes from the set of finite integral adeles.
