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.

Igor Kesaev

Igor Albertovich Kesaev

President of Mercury Group

Date and Place of Birth
October 30, 1966, Ordzhonikidze, North Ossetian ASSR
Why is he on the list
Participation and abetting in the activities of the organized criminal community, established with 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.

According to the information presented in the media, Kesaev Igor Albertovich is suspected of stealing state property. A 2015 investigation by Novaya Gazeta revealed that Kesaev was directly involved in a scheme to privatize about five hectares of former kindergarten land in the Odintsovo district by FSB executives.

In 2007, the Odintsovo municipality transferred the land to the Kalchuga 4 non-commercial dacha partnership registered in Mytishchi for a free term use. A few months afterwards, the land was divided into 22 plots, which were given as personal property to top FSB officials, including Alexander Bortnikov and his deputies. Thus, the FSB officers received free land, the approximate price of which was about 100 thousand dollars per sotka. In spring 2008, most of the plots were purchased by “Mercury” employees Alexander Kobzev and Fatima Biragova, who represented the interests of Igor Kesaev in these transactions. Kesaev provided Kobzeyev and Biragova with the money to buy the plots in the form of a loan. On December 22, 2014, Igor Kesaev became the official owner of the land.

From the materials published in open sources, it follows that the president of Mercury maintains friendly relations with a number of former and current employees of the Federal Security Service. Kesayev’s companies employ many ex-FSB officers. For example, the first vice president for security at Mercury, Vladimir Anisimov, previously held the position of deputy director of the FSB. Since 2003, Kesaev has been honorary president of the Monolit Foundation, which provides financial support to FSB employees in need. As part of the agreement signed with the special service, Kesaev’s fund, in particular, purchased real estate for the needs of the FSB. Monolit was supported by state companies, thanks to this cooperation Kesaev allegedly formed personal relationships with their heads.
