Arkady Rotenberg is a prominent Russian businessman who has close personal ties to President Putin.

In 2015, Rotenberg led the annual list of government contracts in terms of value, after being awarded contracts worth RUB 555 billion from the Russian Government. Many of these contracts were awarded without formal competitive processes. On 30 January 2015, Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev signed a decree that awarded to Rotenberg’s company, Stroygazmontazh, a State contract for the construction of the Kerch bridge from Russia to the illegally annexed Autonomous‘Republic of Crimea‘. Through these contracts, he has financially benefited from Russian decision‐makers responsible for the annexation of Crimea or the destabilisation of eastern Ukraine.

He is the owner of the company Stroygazmontazh, which has been awarded a State contract for the construction of the Kerch bridge from Russia to the illegally annexed Autonomous ‘Republic of Crimea’, therefore consolidating its integration into the Russian Federation which in turn further undermines the territorial integrity of Ukraine. Similarly, in January 2017, Stroygazmontazh was awarded the State contract worth RUB 17 billion for the construction of a railway line on the Kerch bridge, which again further undermines the territorial integrity of Ukraine.

He is the chairman of the board of directors of publishing house Prosvescheniye, which has notably implemented the project ‘To the Children of Russia: Address – Crimea’, a public relations campaign that was designed to persuade Crimean children that they are now Russian citizens living in Russia, and thereby supporting the Russian Government’s policy to integrate Crimea into Russia.
