The organization has made investigations from which it has considered that most of all lobbyists at the Ministry of Defence and FSB.

Photo: Vyacheslav of Prokofiev/TASS Every fifth deputy of the State Duma lobbies the interests of law enforcement agencies. Experts of the Transparency International — Russia group in Barnaul following the results of the investigation made by it have come to such conclusion. The organization claims that expenses on power articles of the budget of the country sharply grow since 2012. As appears from investigation, in the current convocation 86 deputies belong to a power lobby. Most of all them at the Ministry of Defence — 26. 20 deputies lobby the interests of FSB, 8 — prosecutor's office and Investigative Committee, 7 — the Ministry of Internal Affairs. Other law enforcement agencies have no own lobbyists, however their interests are advanced by a power lobby in general, it is noted in the report of Transparency International. To carry this or that deputy to a certain group, experts analyzed biographies, legislative activity, the information about those who supported them on elections and also their communication with authorities. What the lobbyism of deputies specifically consists in, Business FM was told by the head of department of public relations "Transparency International — Russia" Gleb Gavrish. Gleb Gavrish the head of department of public relations "Transparency International — Russia" "Is about very wide range of interactions. It can be also adoption of the laws connected with expansion of powers of this or that power group, expansion of financing and other preferences and privileges. It is possible to tell, for example, that a resonant subject of a retirement age, the government has made the decision that security officers will retire as well as earlier, at the same age, that is actually if the serviceman in 20 years has begun to serve, then in 40 years he can already apply for pension". Financing of security officers really constantly grows. So in 2016 a defense expenditure has grown by 3,7 times in comparison with planned, and by safety — for 44%. In 2017 — by 2,8 times on defense and for 50% — on safety, gives statistics of "Transperensi". But growth of expenses on defense capability and safety of the country can't be considered lobbyism, the first deputy chairman of State Duma Committee on affairs of the CIS Konstantin Zatulin says. He, by the way, too has appeared in the list of lobbyists of the Ministry of Defence. Konstantin Zatulin the first deputy chairman of State Duma Committee on affairs of the CIS "So that all lobbied the interests of the Ministry of Internal Affairs or FSB which concern tightly departmental interests, let us assume, to increase him salary to increase their budget or a period of service him to increase so that they served less, and received more. I, for example, don't know such cases. If it is about fundamental issues of defense and safety then not lobbying of law enforcement agencies, is the normal deputy activity connected with the choice of a way at which have to go in questions of ensuring defense and safety and it in any way it is impossible to equate to a forehead
