According to investigators, suspects tried to sell the seat in the Edinaya Rossiya party and the State Duma for $ 1.5 million to QIWI group of companies Head Andrey Romanenko.
Cherenkov and Pohilyuk were detained when transferring money to the trustee of Romanenko Vadim Alferov and less than six months the Moscow Presnensky district court ruled the sentence. Pohilyuk was sentenced to 4 years in the strict regime penal colony, Cherenkov - for 3 years and 10 months in the general regime penal colony.
Then, after the appeal, the case was returned to the Court of First Instance, at the hearing on which Romanenko refused victim status.
When the FSB checked actions of GUEBiPK employees Abramov and Sobol, signs of exceeding official powers were revealed.

Recall, it was reported that GUEBiPK was raided on 8 December and there were detained two employees associated with so-called "torpedos", operatives, who under the guise of businessmen or interested customers come to the officials and provoke them to take bribes or kickbacks.
