Ryzhenkin is a graduate of the Higher Naval School of Radio Electronics named after A.S. Popov and St. Petersburg State Engineering and Economic University.
Ryzhenkin holds a senior position in a company owned by Arkady Rotenberg, a person on Putin's List (https://www.spisok-putina.org/personas/rotenberg/). Ryzhenkin was included in the sanctions lists of the EU, Great Britain, Switzerland, Canada, Australia and the United States for participation in the construction project of the Kerch Bridge. Commenting on the inclusion in the list, Australian Foreign Minister Maris Payne called the construction of a bridge across Kerch an attempt by Russia to secure control of the illegally annexed Crimean peninsula. By their actions, the persons added to the sanctions list are involved in attempts to legalize the annexation of Crimea and Sevastopol and support separatist activities in eastern Ukraine. The US Treasury Department also makes Ryzhenkin responsible for participating in the construction of the Kerch Bridge, calling it violence against Ukraine's sovereignty.
