Former 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.

Owner of two companies, Mostotrest and Stroygazmontazh-Most, designated for their activities undermining Ukrainian sovereignty (entities No 43 and 46 in this Annex). In 2019 Rotenberg sold the gas pipeline construction company Stroygazmontazh.

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.

Nationality: Ukrainian

Gender: male

Oleksandr Yanukovych is a businessperson and the son of former President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych. During the presidency of Viktor Yanukovych and thanks to the personal connection with a group of persons close to his father, he assembled an array of business interests and accumulated a great fortune. He still runs his business activities in the Donbass region controlled by the separatist groups, especially in the energy, coal, construction, banking and real estate sectors. In particular, thanks to close ties with the pro-Russian separatists, he acquired key economic assets in the so-called ‘Donetsk and Luhansk People’s Republics’, inter alia in the energy, coal and real-estate sectors. The separatist OPLOT battalion (listed since February 2015) protected his real-estate development projects in the so-called ‘Donetsk People’s Republic’.

Oleksandr Yanukovych’s MAKO Holding company was officially transferred to Russian jurisdiction and is now registered in Donetsk. Prior to the transition to Russian jurisdiction, the MAKO group of companies was de jure under Ukrainian jurisdiction.

Therefore, Oleksandr Yanukovych is responsible for supporting or implementing actions or policies which undermine or threaten the territorial integrity, sovereignty and independence of Ukraine and he conducted transactions with the separatist groups in the Donbas region of Ukraine.

Furthermore, he is associated with his father Viktor Yanukovych, who is responsible for supporting or implementing actions or policies which threaten the territorial integrity, sovereignty and independence of Ukraine, as well as the state’s stability and security.

DOB: 9.7.1950

POB: Yenakiyeve, Donetsk Oblast, USSR (now Ukraine)

Nationality: Ukrainian

Function: former president of Ukraine, leading businessperson

Gender: male

From 2010 until 2014, Viktor Yanukovych was President of Ukraine. He pursued a pro-Russian policy when in office. A Ukrainian court found Viktor Yanukovych guilty of treason for having invited the Russian Federation to invade Ukraine. After being removed from power, he relocated to Russia, from where he has continued his activities aimed at destabilising Ukraine.

He assisted in the Russian military interference in Ukraine by calling on the President of the Russian Federation to send Russian troops to Ukraine in March 2014. Viktor Yanukovych supported pro-Russian politicians who held public offices in occupied Crimea. In 2021, a new pre-trial investigation in Ukraine was opened according to which Viktor Yanukovych, together with two former Ministers of Defence, had purposefully reduced the defence capacity of Ukraine, particularly in the autonomous so-called ‘Republic of Crimea’.

On 21 April 2010, then President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych and then President of Russia Dmitry Medvedev signed an agreement between Ukraine and the Russian Federation, according to which the term of the Black Sea Fleet of the Russian Federation in Sevastopol was extended from 2017 to 2042. By signing the agreements, Yanukovych created favourable conditions for increasing Russia’s military presence in Ukraine and for the re-equipment and modernisation of the weapons of the Black Sea Fleet in the territory of Crimea. Subsequently, Russian weapons that were on the territory of Ukraine were used to annex the autonomous so-called ‘Republic of Crimea’ and the city of Sevastopol in 2014.

In 2023, Ukraine’s State Bureau of Investigation submitted an indictment against Viktor Yanukovych on charges of treason and aiding Russia in carrying out subversive activities in Ukraine.

He considers himself as the legitimate President of Ukraine and has consistently presented a pro-Russian stance in his public interventions. According to different sources, Viktor Yanukovych has been part of a Russian special operation, aimed at replacing the Ukrainian President with him, during the first phases of Russia’s war of aggression against Ukraine. Furthermore, the President of the Republic of Chechnya, Ramzan Kadyrov, has requested the President of Ukraine to transfer all his powers to Viktor Yanukovych. Therefore, Viktor Yanukovych is responsible for, supporting or implementing actions or policies which threaten the territorial integrity, sovereignty and independence of Ukraine, as well as the state’s stability and security.

(Ukrainian: Сергiй Вiталiйович КУРЧЕНКО; Russian: Сергей Витальевич КУРЧЕНКО)

Gender: male

DOB: 21.9.1985

POB: Kharkiv, Ukraine

Nationality: Ukrainian

Mr Serhiy Kurchenko is a Ukrainian businessman. With support from pro-Russia separatists, he took control of several large metallurgical, chemical and energy plants in the separatist-held areas of Donbas. His ‘Gaz-Alliance’ company monopolised coal mining in Donbas after its competitors had been forced out of the market, reportedly with help from Russia. He organised and benefitted from the illegal scheme of exporting Donbas coal to Russia and Europe despite EU sanctions. Coal extracted in Mr Kurchenko’s mines has been re-registered and illegally exported via Russian ports.

Mr Kurchenko helped large Russian companies and State-owned holdings to bypass EU restrictive measures by acting as their sub-contractor in the Russian-held territories. He has been an intermediary in Russian gas, fuel and electricity exports to the separatist-held parts of Donbas, which strengthened their independent energy supplies and undermined their economic integration with Ukraine. Moreover, he delivered fuel to the illegally occupied Crimean Peninsula. By doing so, he strengthened the independent power supplies of this territory. He also owns the largest oil depot on the Crimean Peninsula.

He thereby benefitted from Russian decision-makers responsible for the annexation of Crimea and the destabilisation of Eastern Ukraine, conducted transactions with the separatist groups in the Donbas region of Ukraine, and actively supported actions and policies which undermine or threaten the territorial integrity, sovereignty and independence of Ukraine.

Nationality: Russian

Gender: male

Yevgeniy Prigozhin was a Russian leading businessperson with close ties to the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin and the Russian Ministry of Defence. He reportedly died in a plane crash on 23 August 2023.

He publicly confirmed that he founded the Wagner Group, a Russia-based unincorporated military entity, responsible for the deployment of Wagner Group mercenaries in Ukraine. In 2022, a joint stock company called ‘PMC Wagner Center’ was established and registered in Saint Petersburg, with the aim of ‘providing a comfortable environment for generating new ideas to improve Russia’s defence capability’. The Wagner Group, led by Yevgeniy Prigozhin, has played an important role in the fighting in and occupation of territories in Eastern Ukraine.

Concord, also known as KOMBINAT PITANIYA KONKORD OOO, a company which Prigozhin founded and owned until November 2019, and a group of other companies with ties to him, including Concord Management and Consulting LLC and Megaline LLC, have been benefitting from large public contracts with the Russian Ministry of Defence following the illegal annexation of Crimea by the Russian Federation and the occupation of Eastern Ukraine by Russia-backed separatists.
