January 29, 2018

Section 241 of the Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act of 2017
(CAATSA) requires the Secretary of the Treasury, in consultation with the Director of National
Intelligence and the Secretary of State, to submit to the appropriate congressional committees
180 days after enactment a detailed report on senior political figures and oligarchs in the Russian Federation (Section 241 (a)(l)) and on Russian parastatal entities (Section 241 (a)(2)). Pursuant to Section 241 (b), the report shall be submitted in an unclassified form but may have a classified annex. This is the unclassified portion of the report.

Section 241 (a)(l) — Senior Foreign Political Figures and Oligarchs in the Russian Federation

As required by Section 241 (a)(I)(A) of CAA TSA, the Department of the Treasury is providing in this unclassified report a list of senior foreign political figures and oligarchs in the Russian Federation, as determined by their closeness to the Russian regime and their net worth. For purposes of this unclassified portion of the report, this determination was made based on objective criteria related to individuals’ official position in the case of senior political figures, or a net worth of $1 billion or more for oligarchs.

To determine the list of senior political figures, the Department of the Treasury considered the definition in CAATSA Section 241 (c)(2), which incorporates by reference the definition of “senior foreign political figure” in section 1010.605, title 31 of the Code of Federal Regulations. For purposes of this unclassified portion of the report, such names consist of: i) senior members of the Russian Presidential Administration; ii) members of the Russian Cabinet, Cabinet-rank ministers, and heads of other major executive agencies; iii) other senior political leaders, including the leadership of the State Duma and Federation Council, other members of the Russian Security Council, and senior executives at state-owned enterprises. These individuals are listed in Appendix I of this report.

To determine the list of oligarchs, the Department of the Treasury enumerated those individuals who, according to reliable public sources, have an estimated net worth of $1 billion or more. Those individuals who meet this criterion are listed in Appendix 2 of this report.

The Department of the Treasury is also providing in a classified annex to this report additional information required pursuant to Section 241 (a)(l). The classified annex may include individuals who are not included in Appendices 1 and 2 to this unclassified report, and such persons may hold a position below those included in the unclassified report or have a net worth below $1 billion.

Government has information about the individual’s involvement in malign activities. Named individuals and entities who are separately subject to sanctions pursuant to sanctions programs established in U.S. law are denoted with an asterisk (*).

Section 241 (a)(2) — Russian Parastatal Entities

CAATSA Section 241 (a)(2)-(5) requires a report on Russian parastatal entities, including an assessment of their role in the economy of the Russian Federation; an overview of key U S. economic sectors’ exposure to Russian persons and entities; an analysis of the potential effects of imposing additional debt and equity restrictions on parastatal entities; and the possible impact of additional sanctions against oligarchs, senior political figures, and parastatals on the U.S. and Russian economies.

Russian parastatals have origins in the Soviet Union’s command economy. After the dissolution of the Soviet Union, the Russian government conducted large-scale privatization of these entities; in the early 2000s, it began to renationalize large companies. The Russian government has responded to economic shocks, including the financial crisis in 2008 and the imposition of sanctions in 2014, by increasing its role in the economy and ownership of parastatals. As of 2016, Russian parastatals accounted for one-third of all jobs in Russia and 70 percent of Russia’s GDP.

For purposes of this requirement, Russian parastatals are defined as companies in which state ownership is at least 25 percent and that had 2016 revenues of approximately $2 billion or more. A list of such parastatals and the required analysis specified in Section 241 (a)(2)-(5) are included in the classified annex of this report.
