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.

Suleiman Kerimov

Suleiman Abusaidovich Kerimov

Member of the Federation Council from the Republic of Dagestan

Date and Place of Birth
March 12, 1966, Derbent, Dagestan ASSR, USSR
Russian Federation
Why on the list
Participation and abetting in the activities of the organized criminal community, which was created for the purpose of systematically committing 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 peace and security.

He is suspected of money laundering, based on material previously published in the media. An OCCRP investigation based on the Panama Papers revealed that National Telecommunications Company (NTK), controlled by Suleiman Kerimov’s Nafta Group, received a loan of 4 billion rubles from Tokido Holdings, another Kerimov structure, in 2007. On September 20, 2010, Desmin Holdings took over the right to claim the debt and the same day assigned it to Sandalwood Continental, an offshore company owned by cellist Sergei Roldugin, a friend of Vladimir Putin, for just one dollar. By December, NTK had repaid part of the loan to Sandalwood Continental. In 2011, NTK was acquired by Rostelecom, and as a result, the debt obligations were taken over by the state company.

According to RBC, in 2017, French authorities charged Kerimov with tax evasion and money laundering. In February, the Hier villa, estimated to be worth 150 million euros, was searched in connection with the alleged illegal acquisition of real estate. Officially, the four villas on the Côte d’Azur (Hier, Medy Roc, Lexa, and Fiorella) belong to Alexander Studhalter, but according to French law enforcement authorities, Kerimov is the real beneficiary of the property. In November 2017, a French court released Kerimov on his own recognizance and bail of 5 million euros; in December, the bail amount was increased to 40 million euros.

Possible violations of the law
Suleiman Kerimov’s actions may contain indications of the following crimes under the Russian Criminal Code:

  • Art. 210 of the Criminal Code “Organization or participation in a criminal association (criminal organization)”, i.e., participation in the activities of a criminal association established for the purpose of forcible and illegal retention of power contrary to the requirements of the Russian Constitution and systematic commission of other crimes against the government, justice, interests of service and peace.
  • Art. 174. Criminal Code of the Russian Federation “Legalization (laundering) of money or other property acquired by other persons by criminal means”.
  • Art. 198 of the Criminal Code “Tax evasion”, that is, the evasion of an individual from paying taxes, dues, and (or) an individual who is an insurance premium payer from paying insurance premiums.
