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.

Yevgeny Prigozhin

Evgeny Viktorovich Prigozhin

businessman, restaurateur

Date and Place of Birth

Russian Federation
Why on the List
Participation and aiding and abetting in the activities of the organized criminal community, established with the purpose of systematically committing especially dangerous crimes against the foundations of the constitutional system and state security, state power and interests of state service, justice, as well as against peace and security.

According to the Center for Investigative Management, he is suspected of involvement in the murder of Dmitry Sokolov, who drowned after a conflict with Prigozhin in St. Petersburg. According to an excerpt from the case opened by the Department of Internal Affairs over the death, Prigozhin struck Sokolov, and as a result of the beating, the latter fell into the water and drowned. Later, two criminal cases opened on the fact of Sokolov’s death disappeared.

Previously published media materials suggest that Prigozhin and the company “Agency for Internet Research” (“troll factory”), which he financed, may have been involved in interfering in the 2016 U.S. presidential election. In March 2018, the U.S. Treasury Department imposed sanctions against Prigozhin. According to the charges in the federal court of the District of Columbia, the “Internet Research Agency” is suspected of undermining the image of Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, using stolen personal data of Americans, as well as entering the territory of the “Internet Research Agency” employees in the United States under false pretenses.

As follows from the publication of Deutsche Welle, Prigozhin is suspected of funding the illegal Wagner PMC, whose fighters took part in military operations in Ukraine and Syria.

Based on information from public sources, it can be assumed that the company “Megaline” (a structure of “Concord”), associated with Yevgeny Prigozhin, is involved in tax evasion. According to Marina Bychko, the former deputy regional manager of the company, only 70% of the workers were officially employed, but they did not receive a “white” salary in full either. The rest of the money was given in cash – about 800 thousand rubles monthly. According to information from the Northwestern Federal District Department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, Prigozhin uses cash-in-transit schemes and changes in cash register counters, with proceeds from orders being transferred to offshore accounts abroad while working with foreign clients.

According to “Fontanka”, Prigozhin’s companies are de facto monopoly providers of utilities services to military camps in the Moscow, Bryansk and Tver regions, the customer of which is the Ministry of Defense structure JSC “GU ZhKH”.

Presumably, the Ministry of Defense supplier deliberately created conditions that precluded competitive market bidding in order to prevent independent companies from obtaining contracts. The process of selection of suppliers looks dubious – in particular, the illegality of the tenders is indicated by the extremely general nature of the requirements for bidders and the criteria for the selection of bidding winners. In addition, the winning companies lack the necessary licenses to work with state secrets, experience in the field of utilities, as well as staff.

According to the BBC, it is suspected of being affiliated with the sites “Who’s Who” and “Wikiblogger”, which hosted a file of opposition activists who received threats in social networks. According to publications in the Russian media, the activities of both sites were linked to attacks on opposition activists in St. Petersburg.
