Viktor Fedorovych YANUKOVYCH

(Вiктор Федорович ЯНУКОВИЧ)

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.

DOB: 1.6.1961

POB: Leningrad, USSR (now St Petersburg, Russian Federation)

Associated persons: Lyubov Valentinovna Prigozhina (spouse); Violetta Prigozhina (mother)

Associated entities: Wagner Group, internet Research Agency, Concord company group, Concord Management and Consulting LLC, Megaline LLC

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.

Yevgeniy Prigozhin was a leading businessperson operating in Russia. He was responsible for and actively implemented actions which have undermined and threatened the territorial integrity, sovereignty and independence of Ukraine. Moreover, he benefitted from Russian decision-makers responsible for the annexation of Crimea and the destabilisation of Eastern Ukraine.

Yevgeniy Prigozhin’s son, Pavel Prigozhin, is the primary heir and beneficiary of his assets, possessions, and properties. Pavel Prigozhin is listed by the Union for his involvement in military operations against Ukraine. Therefore, it is appropriate to retain Yevgeniy Prigozhin on the list of natural or legal persons, entities or bodies subject to the asset freeze and the prohibition on making funds and economic resources available as there is a likelihood that the assets concerned would otherwise be used to finance Russia’s war of aggression against Ukraine or other actions undermining or threatening the territorial integrity, sovereignty and independence of Ukraine.
