Kamaluddin Gulam Nabizada, the former Afghan Charge d’Affaires in Moscow, has raised funds for the IRGC-QF in coordination with senior levels of the Russian government and intelligence apparatus. Russia-based Nabizada has previously been linked to a corrupt scheme to defraud the Afghanistan-based Kabul Bank, resulting in the widespread loss of confidence in the Afghan banking sector and the loss of more than $800 million to the Afghan government and its people.
As early as April 2021, former IRGC-QF official Rostam Ghasemi leveraged Russia-based RPP Limited Liability Company (RPP LLC) — formerly managed by Afghan businessman Kamaluddin Gulam Nabizada — to transfer millions of dollars on behalf of the IRGC-QF from Russia.
Mihrab Suhrab Hamidi is the current manager of RPP LLC. Some of the oil sales and transport to which RPP LLC was a party while Hamidi was manager were overseen by Rostam Ghasemi;
