Pugachev was the owner of the yacht. He is the founder of the International Industrial Bank. Pugachev was once an influential advisor to the Russian Government.
He helped to get both Boris Yeltsin and Vladimir Putin elected President of Russia. In 2001, he became a senator in Russia.
Next to his duties as a senator, Pugachev was a member of several parliamentary committees, including the Committee on Federal Affairs and Regional Policies. He was also an adviser to the Head of the President’s administration.
In 2011, Pugachev was under investigation by the Russian government for embezzling loans from the government to International Industrial Bank. Pugachev argued the charges were politically motivated and left Russia to live in London and later settled in France.
Pugachev is now a citizen of the Republic of France, has been living in France with his family since the beginning of the 90s, and since 2010 Mr. Pugachev is living in France on permanent basis. He is considered to be a French citizen.
Pugachev and his lawyers believe that the allegations by the Russian authorities targeting Mr. Pugachev are politically motivated and judicially groundless.
The legal team is awaiting action proceedings at the International Arbitration Court in the Hague in regards to Mr. Pugachev’s $12 billion compensation claim against the Russian Federation.
In 2016 an arrest warrant was issued by the Russian state. In 2018 he lost his London residence in an order by a UK commercial court.

In a 2016 article on the Russian Sputnik site, it is mentioned that the yacht DB9 has been seized by the Russian Government.
His net worth was once estimated at US$ 2 billion.
