Personnes associées: Lyubov Valentinovna Prigozhina (épouse); Violetta Prigozhina (mère) - Entités associées: groupe Wagner, Internet Research Agency, Concord company group, Concord Management and Consulting LLC, Megaline LLC - Yevgeniy Prigozhin était un homme d’affaires influent entretenant des liens étroits avec le président de la Fédération de Russie, Vladimir Poutine, et le ministère russe de la défense. Il serait décédé dans un accident d’avion le 23 août 2023. Il a publiquement confirmé avoir fondé le groupe Wagner, une entité militaire non constituée en société basée en Russie, responsable du déploiement de mercenaires du groupe Wagner en Ukraine. En 2022, une société par actions dénommée "PMC Wagner Center" a été créée et enregistrée à Saint-Pétersbourg, dans le but de "créer un environnement propice à la naissance de nouvelles idées permettant d’améliorer les capacités de défense de la Russie". Le groupe Wagner, dirigé par Yevgeniy Prigozhin, a joué un rôle important dans les combats et l’occupation des territoires dans l’est de l’Ukraine. Concord, également connue sous la dénomination de KOMBINAT PITANIYA KONKORD OOO, une société que Prigozhin a fondée et détenue jusqu’en novembre 2019, et un groupe d’autres sociétés qui lui sont liées, y compris Concord Management and Consulting LLC et Megaline LLC, ont bénéficié d’importants contrats publics avec le ministère russe de la défense à la suite de l’annexion illégale de la Crimée par la Fédération de Russie et de l’occupation de l’est de l’Ukraine par des séparatistes soutenus par la Russie. Yevgeniy Prigozhin était un homme d’affaires influent exerçant des activités en Russie. Il était également responsable d’actions qui ont compromis et menacé l’intégrité territoriale, la souveraineté et l’indépendance de l’Ukraine et a activement mis en œuvre ces actions. En outre, il a tiré avantage de décideurs russes responsables de l’annexion de la Crimée ou de la déstabilisation de l’est de l’Ukraine. Le fils de Yevgeniy Prigozhin, Pavel Prigozhin, est le principal héritier et bénéficiaire de ses avoirs, de ses biens et de ses propriétés. Pavel Prigozhin est inscrit sur la liste de l’Union pour son implication dans des opérations militaires contre l’Ukraine. Par conséquent, il convient de maintenir Yevgeniy Prigozhin sur la liste des personnes physiques ou morales, des entités ou des organismes faisant l’objet d’un gel des avoir ou d’une interdiction de mise à disposition de fonds et de ressources économiques, étant donné qu’il est probable que les avoirs concernés serviraient autrement au financement de la guerre d’agression menée par la Russie contre l’Ukraine ou d’autres actions compromettant ou menaçant l’intégrité territoriale, la souveraineté et l’indépendance de l’Ukraine.
