According to the official statement of the Ministry of Justice, Kasyanov participated in the creation and dissemination of materials and messages of foreign agents to a wide audience. In addition, he provided false information about the decisions and policies of Russian public authorities.

“I opposed a special military operation in Ukraine (as a full-scale invasion is called in the Russian Federation), participated as a respondent on information platforms provided by foreign structures. Along with persons included in the register of foreign agents, he is a member of the Anti-War Committee of Russia, an association whose activities are aimed at discrediting the foreign and domestic policies of the Russian Federation,” the Ministry of Justice listed the reasons for inclusion in the register.

In addition, it is noted that Kasyanov lives outside of Russia.

At the age of 65, he left the country shortly after the start of the full-scale Russian invasion of Ukraine. From 2000 to 2004, during Vladimir Putin's first presidential term, Kasyanov served as prime minister. During his tenure in this position, he led reforms in the country's economy and financial sector.

In 2017, Forbes named Kasyanov one of the most effective prime ministers in the history of modern Russia. However, according to Russian President Vladimir Putin, Kasyanov’s activity in the last two years of his work as chairman of the government “was zero.”

Since leaving the post of prime minister in 2004, Kasyanov has become one of the leading opposition voices in Russia. In 2010, he became the leader of the political party People's Freedom Party (Parnas), which actively criticized the domestic and foreign policies of the Russian government.

In April 2015, Kasyanov compiled the so-called Nemtsov list, which included a number of Russian journalists, TV presenters and their leaders: Vladimir Solovyov, Arkady Mamontov, Andrey Karaulov, Dmitry Kiselev, Konstantin Semin, Vladimir Kulistikov, Oleg Dobrodeev and Alexey Pushkov. On April 23, Kasyanov submitted a list of Russian journalists who, in his opinion, participated in the persecution of Boris Nemtsov, to the leadership of the US Congress for inclusion in the sanctions list under the Magnitsky Act: a ban on entry and freezing of assets located in the United States.

In addition to Kasyanov, the list of “foreign agents” included researcher at the Russian Independent Media Archive Ilya Venyavkin, journalist of the “We Can Explain” project Ilya Davlyatchin, journalist of the Dagestan publication “Novoye Delo” Idris Yusupov and Limited Liability Company “PEOPLE” (legal entity of the “Team against Torture” ", declared a "foreign agent" in Russia).

In addition, the public organization “St. Petersburg Russian PEN Club” was excluded from the register (due to liquidation).

Previously, the Ministry of Justice added five people to the register of “foreign agents,” including actress Yana Troyanova, journalist and former editor-in-chief of the program “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?” Ilya Ber, as well as the coordinator of the “Walk through the Forest” project Grigory Sverdlin.

And even earlier, journalist Sergei Koldobsky, historian Alexey Malov, as well as the environmental publication Kedr.Media and the student project Groza were included in the register of “foreign agents”.

On November 3, investigative journalist Andrei Soldatov, host of the YouTube channel “Living Nail” Maria Snegovaya, as well as lawyer and former investigator Kirill Kachur were added to the register.

On October 13, the Ministry of Justice declared 12 people at once “foreign agents,” including human rights activist Olga Romanova, journalist Elena Malakhovskaya and military pensioner Vitaly Votanovsky, known for his discovery of the Wagner PMC cemetery in the Krasnodar Territory.
