Company owned by Kremlin spokesperson’s daughter sees massive revenue increase

A The events company partly owned by Elizaveta Peskova – the daughter of Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov – revealed that it increased its revenue 70 times in 2022 compared to the previous year, according to independent media outlet Verstka reported Tuesday.

Centrum Moscow, whose clients include the Russian Ministry of Trade and Industry, the Moscow government and various other government agencies, earned 137 million rubles ($1.77 million) in 2022, compared to just 1.9 million rubles ($24,614) in 2021, Verstka said.

Peskova, 25, has a 30% stake in Centrum Moscow, which, despite being founded in 2004, has only been active for a few years.

Last year, the company was commissioned to arrange the “Made in Russia” event at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum.

Describing the Peskov family’s “luxurious lifestyles that are incongruous with Peskov’s civil servant salary”, the US Treasury Department added both father and daughter to his sanctions list last March as part of a campaign targeting members of the Russian elite known to support the war in Ukraine.

The EU also added Peskova to its sanctions list, citing her association “with a listed individual” – presumably her father – “who has actively supported actions or policies that undermine or threaten the territorial integrity, sovereignty and independence of Ukraine, as well as stability and security in Ukraine.

Peskova first spoke out against invading Ukraine, posting “no to war” on her Instagram account in the early hours of February 24, 2022, before later deleting the post.
