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.

Samvel Karapetyan

Samvel Sarkisovich Karapetyan

President of Tashir Group of Companies

Date and Place of Birth
18.08.1965, Kalinino, Armenian SSR
Why in the List
Participation and abetting in the activities of the organized criminal community, created for the purpose of committing systematically especially dangerous crimes, directed against the foundations of the constitutional system and state security, state power and interests of the state service, justice, as well as against the peace and security.

Based on the materials previously published in open sources, Samvel Sarkisovich Karapetyan is suspected of embezzlement of property belonging to the state (municipalities). Structures belonging to the “Tashir” holding actively collaborate with the Moscow City Hall. In particular, according to the media, Karapetyan’s companies won tenders for the reconstruction of Moscow streets within the framework of the program “My Street”, repair of hospitals and underpasses, as well as laying the heating system. In 2016, “Tashir” earned almost 2 billion rubles on government contracts for the installation of New Year decorations in the capital. For a number of decoration works Karapetyan’s companies were a monopolist.

According to the media, Tashir Holding is a business partner of Artem Chaika, the son of the Prosecutor General of Russia. In 2014, a joint venture of Karapetyan and Chayka, Georesurs LLC, decided to invest about $300 million to build the RIO shopping center in Mytishchi. Due to the fact that the construction was carried out without the necessary permission and expertise of the project documentation, in June 2015 Georesurs was issued a prescription to eliminate the violation. The requirement was ignored by Karapetyan and Chaika, as a result, in August of the same year, the Arbitration Court of the Moscow Region brought the company to administrative responsibility and suspended construction for 3 months.

The actions of Samvel Sarkisovich Karapetyan may contain indications of the following crimes, stipulated by the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation:

  • Article 210 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation “Organization of a criminal association (criminal organization) or participation in it (it)”, i.e. participation in the activities of a criminal association established for the purpose of forcible unlawful retention of power contrary to the requirements of the Russian Constitution, and systematic commission of other crimes against power, justice, interests of service and peace.
