Personnes associées: le président de la Fédération de Russie Vladimir Poutine, Mikhaïl Fridman, German Borisovich Khan, Alexey Kuzmichev - Entités associées: JSC Voentorg - Petr Aven est un homme d’affaires russe entretenant avec le président de la Fédération de Russie Vladimir Poutine des liens étroits remontant au début des années 1990. Il est un actionnaire important d’ABH Financial Limited, qui comprend l’une des principales banques de Russie, Alfa Bank. Il est également actionnaire de la société d’investissement LetterOne. Il fait partie des quelque 50 femmes et hommes d’affaires russes fortunés que le président de la Fédération de Russie Vladimir Poutine reçoit régulièrement au Kremlin. Il a pris des directives du président de la Russie et a mis en œuvre son programme de politique étrangère. Aven et son associé Mikhaïl Fridman ont participé aux efforts du Kremlin en vue de lever les sanctions occidentales adoptées en réponse à la politique agressive de la Russie à l’encontre de l’Ukraine. Le 24 février 2022, après les premières phases de la guerre d’agression menée par la Russie contre l’Ukraine, Piotr Aven ainsi que 36 autres femmes et hommes d’affaires ont rencontré le président de la Fédération de Russie Vladimir Poutine et d’autres membres du gouvernement russe pour discuter de l’incidence des choix à opérer à la suite des sanctions occidentales. Le fait qu’il ait été invité à participer à cette réunion montre qu’il appartient au cercle le plus proche du président de la Fédération de Russie Vladimir Poutine. Cette invitation spéciale montre qu’il soutient ou met en œuvre des actions ou des politiques qui compromettent ou menacent l’intégrité territoriale, la souveraineté et l’indépendance de l’Ukraine, ainsi que la stabilité et la sécurité en Ukraine. Aven a tiré avantage de ses relations au sein de l’appareil d’État. Dans un échange de faveurs avec le président de la Fédération de Russie Vladimir Poutine, il a obtenu un soutien politique à ses affaires et à ses profits financiers. Le président de la Fédération de Russie Vladimir Poutine a récompensé le consortium Alfa Group pour sa loyauté envers les autorités russes en apportant un appui politique aux plans d’investissement du consortium Alfa Group à l’étranger. La compagnie d’assurances AlfaStrakhovanie, filiale du consortium Alfa Group, fournit des assurances pour les véhicules du service fédéral de la Garde nationale de la Fédération de Russie (Rosgvardia), dont les unités opèrent dans les régions occupées de l’Ukraine sous contrôle russe, ainsi que pour les véhicules des gardes du corps du président de la Fédération de Russie Vladimir Poutine. D’autre part, X5 Retail Group, une autre filiale du consortium Alfa Group, coopère avec JSC Voentorg, une entité soumise à des mesures restrictives qui fournit des services de restauration et de blanchisserie, ainsi que des uniformes militaires, aux forces armées de la Fédération de Russie et dont la filiale vend des T-shirts avec le symbole militaire "Z" utilisé par les propagandistes russes pour promouvoir la guerre d’agression menée par la Russie contre l’Ukraine. Petr Aven est donc un homme d’affaires influent exerçant des activités en Russie ainsi qu’un homme d’affaires ayant une activité dans un secteur économique qui fournit une source substantielle de revenus au gouvernement de la Fédération de Russie, qui est responsable de l’annexion de la Crimée et de la déstabilisation de l’Ukraine. Il a apporté un soutien matériel ou financier actif aux décideurs russes responsables de l’annexion de la Crimée et de la déstabilisation de l’Ukraine, et a tiré avantage de ces décideurs. Il a aussi activement soutenu des actions et des politiques qui compromettent ou menacent l’intégrité territoriale, la souveraineté et l’indépendance de l’Ukraine.
