EU Consolidated Travel Bans,

Personnes associées: le président de la Fédération de Russie Vladimir Poutine, Petr Aven, German Borisovich Khan, Alexey Kuzmichev - Entités associées: JSC Voentorg - Mikhail Fridman est un homme d’affaires russe. Il est l’un des principaux actionnaires 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 est parvenu à cultiver des liens étroits avec l’administration du président de la Fédération de Russie, Vladimir Poutine, et on le cite parmi les plus grands financiers russes et comme facilitateur du cercle rapproché de Poutine. Il est parvenu à acquérir des biens d’État grâce à 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. 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. M. Fridman et son associé Petr Aven 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. Il 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 fournissant 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.
