Swiss authorities have added:

SSID: 130-43767 Name: Prigozhin Yevgeniy Viktorovich Spelling variant: Пригожин Евгений Викторович (Russian)
Sex: M DOB: 1 Jun 1961 POB: St. Petersburg (f.k.a. Leningrad) Nationality: Russian Federation
Justification: a) Yevgeniy Viktorovich Prigozhin is a Russian businessman with close links, including financially, to the private military company Wagner Group. b) In this way, Prigozhin is engaged in and providing support for Wagner Group’s activities in Libya, which threaten the country’s peace, stability and security. c) In particular, Wagner Group is involved in multiple and repeated breaches of the arms embargo in Libya established in UNSCR 1970 (2011), including delivery of arms as well as deployment of mercenaries into Libya in support of the Libya National Army. Wagner Group has participated in multiple military operations against the UN-endorsed Government of National Accord and has contributed to damaging the stability of Libya and undermining a peaceful process. Modifications: Listed on 28 Oct 2020

to both their financial sanctions and travel sanctions lists for their Libya program. Remember, the SSID is different for each program – Progozhin’s SSID under the travel sanctions is 130-43757.
