The Federal Security Service analysed phone calls made by Trofimov and his wife and came to the conclusion that former officer of the Federal Service special units Balashov, now Vladimir Slutsker's employee, had most probably committed the murder.
Investigators gave an account of the conflict between the owners of Finvest in which the retired general unexpectedly got involved. Vladimir Slutsker suspected Hambartsum Safaryan of concealing his profit share. The relationship between shareholders got strained. For three years Trofimov, who was brought to the company by Slutsker, stayed away from any internal conflicts as he did not to put under threat his personal life and his family. But on 14 March 2004 after a phone call from an unknown well-wisher a dummy bomb was found in the attic of the Slutsker's mansion. It made quite a stir and rumours about "attempted assassination of the prominent member of parliament " were going around. Trofimov did not resist saying to "the prominent member of parliament" that his frame-up had been made in a very stupid manner. In response Slutsker blamed Trofimov for "colluding with Safaryan" and asked him to return a card of assistant member of the Federation Council and get out.
At night after the detention unknown attackers smashed the glass of Trofimov's car and thus tried to make him go outside the house. Four days later Trofimov was killed by ''a man with saltatory gait'' very similar to the gait of Slutsker's chauffeur.

In 2007 Lourie was prosecuted, but this fact became known only in 2008. Lourie himself regarded that as intimidation. He did not admit his guilt and in anticipation of being arrested he wrote in his blog that "a certain high-ranking official had instituted proceedings against him" and that it had been"his revenge for a number of articles published three or four years ago". Lourie stated that publications had not been "directly related" to those who sent him to prison.
On 26 January 2008 Lourie was summoned to the committee of inquiry. There he was detained on suspicion of extortion and fraud. On the same day he was indicted for fraud and Moscow court gave sanction to his arrest. On 20 June 2008 Lourie's case reached the trial.

According to Romanova, when Kozlov let Slutsker know of his plans, Slutsker threatened to "make short work of him''. In summer 2007 Kozlov was arrested on charges of fraud. In March 2009 Moscow court found Kozlov guilty and sentenced him to eight years of imprisonment. Kozlov pled not guilty and stated that the conflict between him and Slutsker should have been settled in civil court, but Slutsker had turned it into a criminal case by clever string-pulling.
In 2010 Olga Romanova applied to the Prosecutor General's office. She stated that the charge against her husband Aleksei Kozlov had been trumped up by Vladimir Slutsker' order. Slutsker refused to comment on her statement. Kozlov, who was at the moment serving his term in the colony, said he was willing to wait for a criminal case against former member of the Federation Council Vladimir Slutsker "for years''.
