According to TASS, the document contains 210 names: 114 major Russian officials and state company executives, as well as the first 96 businessmen from the Russian part of the list of billionaires Forbes, published in April 2017. Thus, the "Kremlin report" included the Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev and including Minister of Foreign Affairs Sergey Lavrov, Minister of Energy Alexander Novak, Transport Minister Maxim Sokolov, Head of the Ministry of Industry and Communications and Communications Ministry Denis Manturov and Nikolai Nikiforov, Minister of Agriculture Alexandre Tkachev.

The list is not sanctioned, no restrictions are imposed on its defendants, the Americans do not threaten to deal with them, unless restrictive measures have been imposed on a person earlier. The non-secret part of the report says that the list includes 96 "oligarchs whose fortune, according to reliable open sources, exceeds $ 1 billion." "Persons who meet this criterion are included in the list, which is in Appendix 2 of this report," the documents say. The so-called Kremlin list was to be prepared by the Ministry of Finance and the National Intelligence Services of the United States in accordance with CAATSA by January 29. According to Dmitry Peskov, the press secretary of the Russian president, with the help of the Kremlin report, Washington is trying to quarrel Putin with the Russian business elite, his preparation is "a direct and obvious attempt to implement  some actions to the elections in such a way as to influence them." As expected, on January 29, the US administration also had to present a new package of sanctions against Russia, but in the second half of the day the State Department stated that the CAATSA law itself "serves as a deterrent" and that "if the law works, then sanctions against specific organizations or individuals may not be required. " The Office drew attention to the fact that the new restrictions, if introduced, will not affect Moscow, but those foreign organizations that deal with Russian enterprises of the defense industrial complex and intelligence services.

Under the Law on Countering America's Enemies through Sanctions (CAATSA), the US Ministry of Finance, by January 29, 2018, is required to submit to Congress a report on high-ranking Russian officials and businessmen (the authors of the law call them oligarchs). According to article 241, the document should include information about the relationship of these individuals with Russian President Vladimir Putin, their involvement in corruption, their net capital and sources of income, as well as about the assets of relatives (including wives, brothers and sisters, children and parents). A separate document will be devoted to the possibility of a ban on US investment in Russia's national debt.
