The anatomy of parliamentary corruption” in the portal “Strenia”.
“Man in a black suit with a gun in a holster is in the hands of two gym bags. Comes in a narrow Elevator leading from the waiting room of the main office in the presidential Administration. The Elevator is shared with the First that need to travel through the front door, and himself the First. From there it leads directly into the garage, where there is avtoeskort Petro Poroshenko. I was in the garage, I saw the Elevator and the whole process. In each bag – half a million dollars. They are the responsibility of the representative of the presidential guard. The money in the bags put in the trunk and passed me, the facilitator, the person who took over the function of the organizer of the voting”, – told “Country” the fluent oligarch.
On this day, which recalls Onishchenko, under the dome of Parliament fired a high-ranking person.
He described the mechanism by which buy votes. With some of the deputies agree, some pay cash and some pressure, to get criminal case.
“In total in Parliament sell their votes individually for about 70 deputies. In the landmark voting the price of their voices varies from 20 to 100 thousand dollars., depending on the identity of the Deputy. In each separate case it is necessary to bargain than I am, in fact, worked for several years with the team Poroshenko. Traded and organized commercial vote in favor of the President. Spent most of my money, and later – the money that I gave on the orders of Poroshenko,” — said Onishchenko.
According to respondents, “Country” parliamentarians, in recent years, the Deputy Onishchenko was one of the key mediators between the President and the parliamentary gym by purchasing the missing voice.

Including Onishchenko has received for his Manager, Igor Shevchenko, the Minister of environment under the quota of “Batkivshchyna” and agreed on Bankova,” — said the MP from the Radical party Andrei Lozovoi.

“When Yanukovych was in power for the issues of financial interaction with the deputies answered Andriy Klyuyev, — says Sergei Gaidai. – Now Poroshenko such “Klyuev” several. In the galaxy of new people, for example, Oles Dovgy. He works with former regionals and the team of Leonid Chernovetsky and one of the key communicators from the government in this environment. Sort of a coordinator of the separate processes.”
Among the other chief negotiators and financial intermediaries between the President and the deputies Onishchenko calls the first Deputy head of the faction PPO Igor Kononenko.
In individual cases the President has delegated the right arrangements to Sergey Berezenko and former head of the presidential Administration, and nowadays the adviser of President Boris Lozhkin.

The most expensive for the cadence Glad, he said, has turned the vote on the resignation Nalyvaychenko. “According to my estimates, then it was worth 2-2. 5 million dollars. Through me passed a million,” he says.
According to the Deputy from BPP Sergey Leshchenko, information about corruption in the Parliament may lead to a series of investigations and commencement of criminal proceedings, but in the end will lead to the planting of a group of individuals.
