The subject studied in the article is the channels, forms and purposes of investing black resources into the political sphere.

In the basis of the research lie interviews with political technologists, representatives of political parties' central apparatuses, deputies of the State Duma and of regional legislative assemblies, as well as with leaders of organizations, who made use of the services of deputies of different levels for the solution of questions of business of their own.
