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.

Valentina Matvienko

Valentina Ivanovna Matvienko

Chairwoman of the Federation Council of the Federal Assembly

Date and Place of Birth
07.04.1949, Shepetivka, Khmelnytskaya oblast, Ukraine
Russian Federation
Why on the List
Participation and aiding and abetting in the activities of an organized criminal community established with the purpose of systematically committing particularly dangerous crimes against the foundations of the constitutional order and state security, state power and interests of state service, justice, as well as against peace and security.

In 2014, Valentina Matvienko fell under the sanctions of the United States, Canada and the EU in connection with the approval of the Federation Council, which she headed, of the introduction of Russian military forces into Ukraine.

Based on media reports, she is suspected of using her position as governor of St. Petersburg to make improper decisions in favor of her family and her entourage. According to Russiangate, during his tenure Valentina Matvienko signed at least nine decisions to lease the city’s property to private companies for the construction. The main private developers have been structures affiliated with Matvienko’s son Sergei. The total value of the objects granted to him amounted to 8.4 billion rubles. Thus, holding a public office, Valentina Matvienko, presumably, could contribute to the illegal enrichment of her relative at the expense of the city budget.

Possible violations of the law
The actions of Valentina Matvienko may contain elements of the following crimes under the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation:

  • Art. 210 of the Criminal Code “Organization of a criminal community (criminal organization) or participation in it (it)”, i.e. participation in the activities of a criminal community established with the purpose of forcibly and illegally keeping power contrary to the requirements of the Russian Constitution and systematically committing other crimes against the government, justice, interests of service and peace.
  • Art. 353 of the Criminal Code of the RF “Planning, preparation, unleashing or waging a war of aggression,” including the implementation of aggression against Ukraine, as well as the unjustified use of the armed forces of the Russian Federation on the territory of other states.
  • Art. 285 of the Criminal Code of the RF “Abuse of Office”, i.e. the use by an official of his official powers contrary to the interests of the service and with mercenary or other personal interest.
