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.

According to open sources, Alexander Torshin is closely connected with the leader of the Tagansky organized crime group, Alexander Romanov, who was arrested in Spain on suspicion of illegal deals and laundering of 1.6 million euro. According to the report of the Spanish Civil Guard, in 2010-2013, Torshin not only gave orders to legalize money through the banks and the purchase of real estate in Spain, but also de facto held the highest position in the structure of the Taganka gang. According to the media, Torshin is the godfather of one of the sons of Alexander Romanov. The affiliation with Romanov is also indicated by two letters found during the search of the Taganskaya OCG leader. Both letters are related to the raider seizure of the Moskva department store by the private security company Afganets in 2009. According to the Spanish prosecutor’s office, Afganets belonged to the Taganskaya OCG. The first letter addressed to Alexander Torshin contains a request to support the people of the CHOP, the second letter with the state seal contains a response of Deputy Prosecutor General Viktor Grin, in which he says that the participants of the raider seizure will be protected.

Thus, in 2012, Alexander Torshin addressed a letter to the head of the Investigative Committee Alexander Bastrykin in defense of the owners of the chemical plant “Togliattiazot” Vladimir and Sergey Makhlayev, who are suspected of fraudulent schemes for the removal of assets, as well as the concealment of profits.
