Dossier Center List
On April 6, 2018, the U.S. Treasury Department imposed new sanctions against 24 Russians, including businessmen and government officials from Vladimir Putin’s inner circle. We believe it would be wrong to rely solely on the opinion of a foreign government. The Dossier Center publishes its own list of possible organizers of the Kremlin OCG and their likely accomplices with brief profiles.

Boris Gromov

Boris Vsevolodovich Gromov

The Governor of the Moscow Region (2000-2012)

Date and Place of Birth
07.11.1943, Saratov, USSR
Russian Federation
Why in the List
Participation and complicity in the activities of the organized criminal community, established with the purpose of systematically committing particularly dangerous crimes against the foundations of the constitutional system and state security, state power and the interests of the state service, justice, as well as against peace and security.

According to information published in open sources, Boris Vsevolodovich Gromov is suspected of negligence while in office as Governor of the Moscow Region (2000-2012), which allegedly resulted in major damage to the regional budget. In August 2008, the Investigative Committee of the Russian Prosecutor General’s Office initiated a criminal case against Alexei Kuznetsov, the former Minister of Finance of the Moscow region, suspected of embezzling 27 billion rubles of budgetary funds. In case Gromov Boris Vsevolodovich was aware of Kuznetsov’s probable financial crimes, as well as of his illegal second citizenship which allowed him to leave the country, the ex-governor of Moscow Region may be suspected of negligence, concealment of crimes and abuse of office. An audit by the Accounts Chamber of the Russian Federation uncovered violations totaling about 92 billion rubles, which is associated with a significant increase in the budget deficit of the Moscow region.

In May 2012, shortly before he stepped down as governor, Boris Vsevolodovich Gromov signed a decree transferring 35 plots with a total area of over 500 hectares, located on the territory of the protected forest, to the borders of rural settlements. The owners of the plots were persons affiliated with a number of state officials, in particular, with Vladimir Kozhin, the administrator of the President’s affairs. A significant portion of the land plots reclassified as ‘settlement land’ ended up in the ownership of an offshore company from the British Virgin Islands, Project Invest Holdings Ltd.

On the basis of materials previously published in the media, it can be assumed that Boris Vsevolodovich Gromov facilitated appointments and promotions on the basis of personal friendships. For instance, Konstantin Polikutin, a colleague of the governor in military school, was appointed general director of Mosoblgaz; in turn, Natalia Lalueva, wife of another of Gromov’s colleagues, Igor Parkhomenko, was appointed his deputy.

In October 2011, Duma deputy Gennady Gudkov demanded an investigation into the legality of Boris Gromov’s actions: according to his information, he directly instructed government officials to ensure support for United Russia and obstruct the work of the party’s political opponents to the maximum extent possible. According to Gudkov, Gromov also disseminated a plan to falsify elections and discredit opposition political movements in Moscow region through Sergei Moiseyev, regional Minister of Press and Information.
